Today through June 4 in Atlantic City, N.J, Gelest, Inc. is highlighting silicon-based BIOSAFE® antimicrobials for long-lasting surface protection and advanced silanes for high- performance applications. Gelest’s dipodal silanes improve substrate bonding, and its cyclic azasilanes provide effective surface modification at nanodimensions.
BIOSAFE® silicon-based antimicrobials protect formulated coatings and compounded polymers for manufactured goods. U.S. Environmental Protection Agency-registered, the no-VOC antimicrobials prevent deterioration and discoloration caused by fungi, prevent algae growth and inhibit the growth of odor-causing bacteria. Colorless and odorless, the BIOSAFE® materials are positively charged polymers and can be incorporated into coatings.
At NPE 2015, Gelest, Inc. is highlighting its silicon-based BIOSAFE® antimicrobials for long-lasting surface protection, dipodal silanes to improve substrate bonding, cyclic azasilanes for treating fillers in nanocomposites, and functional and inert silicone fluids for polymer synthesis, internal lubricants and flow control.
The Technical Guide addresses the comparative efficacy of BIOSAFE antimicrobials vs. other antimicrobial technologies, applications, US EPA/FIFRA compliance, and additional information supporting BIOSAFE antimicrobial as a safe and effective mode of controlling microorganisms.
Gelest, Inc., today introduced new BIOSAFE® silicon-based antimicrobials that protect formulated coatings and compounded polymers for manufactured goods. U.S. Environmental Protection Agency-registered, the No-VOC antimicrobials prevent deterioration and discoloration caused by fungi, prevent algae growth and inhibit the growth of odor-causing bacteria. Unveiled at the American Coatings Show 2014 (April 8-11, Atlanta, Georgia, USA), the BIOSAFE materials are colorless, odorless, positively charged polymers that molecularly bond in an environmentally friendly manner to, and are ideal for, bulk surfaces and fabrics that are susceptible to microbial contamination.
Pittsburgh-based BIOSAFE, Inc. a supplier of a unique antimicrobial polymer technology, announced today that it has signed a strategic partnership agreement with Gelest, Inc. of Morrisville, Pennsylvania, who is recognized worldwide as an innovator, manufacturer and supplier of silane, metal-organic and silicone materials.
