Laboratory and medical equipment
Including zinc oxide nanoparticles with sizes below 100 nm and spherical morphology
Showing significant reduction in the number of E. coli and S. aureus bacteria compared to control samples without nanoparticles
Zinc oxide has inhibitory effects on both gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria. Smaller zinc oxide particles have greater inhibitory behavior. This behavior depends on surface area and oxide concentration as well. High concentration and large specific area create stronger antibacterial behavior.
Durable Antibacterial effect
This product is zinc oxide/polypropylene nanocomposite granule which has anti-bacterial properties due to the presence of zinc oxide nanoparticles. Textiles are nourishing environment for bacterial growth. For the production of antibacterial textiles, nanoparticles are being used. Zinc oxide nanoparticles are one the most widely used nanoparticles to deal with bacteria. The main application of this granular nanocomposite is thin fibers production used in textile.
