Development and evaluation of coatings and surface conditions on steel for antibacterial and easy to clean properties

Objective

Microbial growth in steel components may cause corrosion, odour, staining, and in certain cases serious healthy problems. Today, there is a special interest in what it is called "hygienic surfaces" with refers not only to a surface that provides anti-microbial activity, but also to a surface which looks clean or even with a self cleaning behaviour.

These properties can be achieved with specific coatings or via surface substrate modification. The development and evaluation of hygienic surfaces on steel for antibacterial and easy to clean properties is the main objective of this proposal.
