NanoAF prevents bacterial colonization on various surfaces
Biofouling is a process in which organisms and their by-products encrust a surface. The process starts with the non-specific adsorption of proteins to the surface, and continues with the attachment of the organisms to the proteins on a substrate. When the organism is pathogenic bacteria, its attachment to the surface may progress to the formation of well-organized bacterial network called biofilm. Industries such as water treatment, biomedical devices, air quality and food packaging, all suffer from problems associated with Biofilm formation.
NanoAF coating efficiently prevents protein from attaching to the surface and by doing so prevents biofilm formation. NanoAF coating is not biocidal and also prevents bacteria from evolving into stronger and more resistive forms.
