Several companies are claiming that their coatings could last for months. However, no such data has been generated or proof available in support of their claims. Specially, if coating is less than 1 micron, it is difficult to believe those claims. We at Flora Coatings have compared a competitive commercial product with INVESIL. The commercial product was applied as received and tested using Taber Abrasion as per ASTM.
Recent studies have identified the broad-spectrum antiviral properties of silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) against respiratory pathogens, such as adenovirus, parainfluenza, and influenza. AgNPs achieve this by attaching to viral glycoproteins, blocking entry into the host cell.
INVESIL was spray coated over silicone rubber gloves and displayed exceptionally good adhesion. Coated gloves after drying can be stretched as INVESIL is an adequately flexible.
