Nysafe-AV 700 and Nysafe-AV 900 by Nycote Laboratories Corporation is an advanced material high performance permanent surface coating with Zinc that provides high-touch surface protection. Zinc is proven to have antimicrobial and biocidal activities against various human pathogens while being safe for human touch. Zinc has been widely applied in the process of catalysis, drug control delivery, biosensors, and biofuels.
Industrial materials are facing a paradigm shift now that composites are replacing many metallic and ceramic materials. Although manufacturers prefer well-known metallics, industries, such as aerospace and automotive, require lighter weight options with high material performance capabilities, increased corrosion resistance, and increased load and fatigue capacity.
Aerospace industry protective coatings organic, inorganic, chemical conversion or metallic are the first line of defense against corrosion. Due to aging and the need to inspect the material under a coating, many of these coatings eventually require removal and reapplication. If the coating is improperly removed or removal damages the substrate/part, the results can be dangerous and costly.
Materials exposed to the extreme space environment must tolerate temperatures, gravity, radiation and pressure that are completely different to those on Earth. Coating and paint manufacturers must produce products to encapsulate parts and surfaces and to remain stable without outgassing (the release of molecules from the paints and coatings that can migrate onto sensitive equipment). Applications requiring protective paints and
ISO 22196: General Information The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) is a worldwide federation of national standards bodies that develops international standards for the production and assessment of a variety of materials and processes. The ISO method 22196 is a quantitative test designed to assess the performance of antimicrobial finishes on hard, non-porous surfaces.
Test Method Background and Study Timeline ASTM International, formerly the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM), is an internationally recognized organization that develops and publishes product and testing standards. ASTM G21 is a qualitative test method designed to assess the ability of synthetic materials to resist fungal attack. The method is typically conducted over a 28-day period where treated
