Antimicrobial coatings basically are used to protect HVAC products, electronic appliances, food processing facilities, medical packaging and others by suppressing the growth of microbes formed on their respective surfaces. Antimicrobial coatings destroy or inhibit the growth of microorganisms, especially pathogenic which come from nature.
These microbes can be deleterious to human health if there is absence of antimicrobial coating on HVAC systems, air-conditioning systems, food processing and packaging, medical packaging, textiles, construction applications in corporate offices, commercial areas, industries, residential building and others.
The quality of air which is being inhaled by humans can be harmful and may have serious impacts on health as these microbes dwell on HVAC and air-conditioning systems. Antimicrobial coatings are generally applied on various parts or appliances during the manufacturing or just after assembly stage.
