Once applied, Bacoban forms an ultra-thin film on the treated surface that develops a solid gel phase with a lasting effect. This porous sponge structure contains inbuilt anti-bacterial properties and biocides that are released to kill germs and automatically stop the growth of pathogenic microorganisms. In tests carried out by professionals it was confirmed that the treated surface would be 60% less likely to be inhabited by harmful bacteria and germs as reproduction is significantly reduced.
Chosen as the method to produce Bacoban’s unique and advanced disinfectant formula, the sol-gel process uses nanostructured materials and manufactures them systematically with controlled reactions between different basic materials in a special sequence of processes:
- The nanoparticles can develop into particles or structures with different functions.
- Different functional structures with different physical properties can be designed.
- The particles can be stablised in the solvent and their further growth controlled.
- Modified nanoparticles can further be integrated into the already nanostructured material to allow more functions and supplementary applications later on.
