Graphene supplier and product manufacturer Nano Graphene (d/b/a GrapheneCA) has announced that its antibacterial products have shown to be 99.9% effective in making various surfaces bacteria proof according to ASTM E2180 testing protocol for determining antimicrobial activity of polymeric materials. This follows GrapheneCA's April 2020 launch of its online store to sell these new “Dr. Nano” anti-bacterial coatings.
GrapheneCA’s Dr. Nano Flooring and Dr. Metal product lines have been shown in an independent laboratory test to provide exceptional antimicrobial protection of different surfaces. The coatings demonstrated exceptional activity against gram-positive and gram-negative, antibiotic-resistant bacteria that can cause severe respiratory infections, among other things. The proprietary formula in the graphene-improved, water-based epoxy coatings blocks the metabolism of microorganisms by restricting cellular respiration and cell division on surfaces.
