A novel, controlled, low-temperature process based on in-situ precipitated nanostructures grown in aqueous solution for making


Here we present a novel process of coating substrates with an ultrathin, uniform nano-ceramic layer, This process can be done at low temperatures (90°C) and can be applied to biological and organic substrates, included but not limited to: steel, silk, polyerster, nylon, latex, PTFE, PET, PVC, PS, silicone, carbon, cellulose, wood, paper, cardboard. The coating, when moistened and exposed to natural or artificial light, advantageously generates free radicals. This reaction can be further enhanced by UV light to create a biocidal surface that can deodorize, or assist in degradation of surface deposits on the substrate after use.

Key Benefits

Improves materials' performance, resistance, and enables some heat- sensitive materials to be used at higher temperatures, Simple, low-cost, low temperature, and scalable manufacturing step, Unlike many processes that require high temperatures that can degrade materials, this process can be done at low temperatures(90°C), Photocatalytic property of the coating can release free radicals that can degrade odors, food residue, and bacteria, reducing the amount of detergents for cleaning, Antibacterial activity of the coatings has also been observed in the absence of light
