What is antibacterial material?
Antibacterial material refers to materials that possess inherent antimicrobial properties or have undergone antimicrobial treatment. The chemical composition of these materials is highly sensitive to microorganisms such as mold, bacteria, and viruses. Through chemical reactions or physical actions, they can eliminate or inhibit the growth of microorganisms on the surface, thus providing antimicrobial effects.
How does nano-silver antibacterial technology work?
Nano-silver antibacterial technology primarily relies on silver ions as the antibacterial agent. Most pathogenic bacteria are single-celled microorganisms that rely on proteases for their metabolism. Silver ions (Ag+) carry a positive charge and can strongly attract and quickly bind with the negatively charged thiol groups (-SH) on the proteases of bacteria. This interaction prevents the proteases from breathing and metabolizing, leading to their inactivation and eventual death. Silver ions can also penetrate the outer cell wall of bacteria, causing them to rupture and die. After the bacteria die, the silver ions do not disappear but continue to be released from the bacterial remains and exert antimicrobial effects on other bacterial structures. This process repeats continuously, ensuring long-lasting antimicrobial activity.
Do antibacterial products with antibacterial agents added require cleaning?
Yes. Our technology does not replace regular cleaning procedures. Antimicrobial products are generally cleaner between two cleaning sessions compared to regular products, but they still require routine cleaning.
What bacteria is considered pathogenic bacteria?
Pathogenic bacteria are those that can produce exotoxins or release toxins upon cell death, causing diseases in humans or animals. Common pathogenic bacteria include Escherichia Coli, Klebsiella, Pseudomonas, Salmonella, Enterococcus, Candida Albicans, Hemophilus influenzae, Streptococcus Pneumoniae, Staphylococcus Aureus, Enterobacteriaceae, Respiratory Viruses, Anaerobic Bacteria, Coagulase-negative Staphylococci, Salmonella, Shigella, Enteroviruses, and others.
Which types of microorganisms are affected by antibacterial agents?
Antibacterial agents are broad-spectrum antibacterial agents that generally target pathogenic microorganisms. When testing antimicrobial properties, representative bacterial species such as Escherichia Coli (Gram-negative bacteria) and Staphylococcus Aureus (Gram-positive bacteria) are selected. For fungi, Candida Albicans is commonly used. Various molds, such as Aspergillus Niger, Penicillium sp., Cladosporium sp., and Chaetomium sp., are used to test antifungal efficacy.
Does the antibacterial solution affect the product's characteristics?
Our antibacterial agents are formulated and designed not to alter the existing properties of the treated products (e.g., color change, yellowing, reaction time, curing time, stability, etc.). We recommend conducting sample tests before full-scale production.
Does antibacterial technology have an expiration date?
After adding antibacterial agents, the technology becomes integrated into the product and begins to exert its antimicrobial effects once microorganisms come into contact with the product surface. It continues to provide antimicrobial efficacy throughout the product's lifespan. Under normal conditions and within the product's usable lifespan, the antimicrobial activity remains effective and is not washed off or worn away.
Does Zirconium Phosphate have any other names?
Yes, Zirconium Phosphate is also known as Zirconium Hydrogen Phosphate, Nanoporous Zirconium Phosphate, or Environmentally Friendly Zirconium Phosphate.
What pollutants does Zirconium Phosphate work on in the field of water treatment?
Layered Zirconium Phosphate (ZrP) exhibits selective adsorption of metal ions, making it effective in the harmless treatment of heavy metal pollution.
Which series of flame retardants does Zirconium Phosphate-based halogen-free flame retardant belong to?
It belongs to the nitrogen-free series.
