Nanostructured anti-septical coatings

Objective

The aim of this project is to provide four EU SMEs (Alce Calidad, EASReth, Di.Pro. and Aero Sekur) with a new silver/silica based coating material having anti-septical properties superior to those existing on the market: the coating is made of silica glass and of silver nanoclusters which are embedded in the silica glass. Silica provides excellent thermal and mechanical properties to the coating. The technique used to deposit this coating (RF sputtering) is suitable to almost every kind of substrate (polymers, metals, glasses, etc.). Results will have a clear and immediate exploitation potential to improve or develop new products currently commercialized by the four SMEs : biomedical implants for DiPro, agro/food industry equipments for Alce Calidad and EASReth and personnel protective systems for Aero Sekur. As soon as the anti-septic functionality can be provided to SMEs products, the following new products will be directly put on the market: Di.Pro: new anti-septical artificial anus ALCE and EASReth: new anti-septical coating on surfaces to be used in food handling and processing; Aero Sekur: new anti-septical textiles for Personal Protection Systems (PPS).
