Zentek has announced that it will be opening its industrial scale ZenGUARD™ antimicrobial production facility in Guelph, Ontario on June 17th, 2022. This facility is claimed by Zentek to be one of the largest nanomaterials-based manufacturing facilities in the world.
“The opening of this facility is an important milestone for our company as it represents our successful journey from the lab, through regulatory and now to industrial commercialization. I would like to personally thank all our employees and vendor partners who put in considerable time and effort to make this happen,” said Greg Fenton, CEO of Zentek. “We’re now ready to begin meeting the growing interest and demand for our ZenGUARD™ coating.”
ZenGUARD™ is the Company’s patent-pending coating said to have 99% antimicrobial activity providing for significantly enhanced viral and bacterial filtration efficiency. While the Company’s immediate focus is on transmission prevention, through sales of ZenGUARD™ coated masks, Zentek continues to develop other opportunities including in the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) market for revenue generation using this nanotechnology.
