This technology inhibits both, adhesion and appearance of microorganisms based on two aspects that take place simultaneously: physiochemical incompatibility between the surface of the coating and microorganisms; and biochemical elimination of microorganism by the biocides embedded in the coating.
- Surface protection: This technology protects metal surfaces from some chemical reactions which commonly occur in similar situations, such as microbial influenced corrosion or hydrogenase-caused depolarization.
- Cleansed fuel: Through the elimination of existent microorganisms and further by preventing from their appearance, it avoids organic accumulation and sludge formation, resulting in a clearer fuel in the entire volume. This fact allows for conservation of fuel properties, besides a proper performance of additives.
- Improved performance, with no accumulation neither deposits along the fuel flow, engine wear and corrosion no longer occur as previously. Besides a better engine maintenance, a decrease in filter plugging drives to a less restricted flow, improving final performance.
Some specific markets which might employ this technology are:
- Aircraft / aerospace sector paints
- Coatings sector metallurgical sector
- Fuels sector (manufacture, transport, storage)
- Chemical sector
- Antimicrobial coating
- Microbial contamination
- Fungal growth in fuel
- Antibiofilm performance
- Microorganisms’ adhesion color transfer inhibitor material
