Silane is better than Silver or Triclosan

Gelest, Inc., today introduced new BIOSAFEĀ® 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.
