Industrial varnishes based on silver ions
Microbicidal varnishes based on silver ions are bactericidal and virucidal varnishes which contain pigments that carry silver ions.
These varnishes show very high efficiency (99.99%) of fighting off viruses and bacteria.
Silver, called a ‘killer of viruses and bacteria’, has been successfully used for years for production of products meant to combat these microbes, which are dangerous for humans.
In the presence of water or moisture, these pigments gradually release silver ions, acting as a bactericidal and virucidal material.
Microbicidal varnishes can be applied on an old, stable coat of paint, thus obtaining a resistant coating that kills viruses and bacteria.
