Mass food poisoning incidents and infection diseases by viruses have been common concerns, and products with strong effectiveness against bacteria and viruses are widely demanded.
To satisfy social demands, we have developed a new nickel-acetate based sealing agent for anodized aluminum, TOP NOBAC ALT.
TOP NOBAC ALT is an antimicrobial and antiviral sealing agent for anodized aluminum. When bacteria and/or viruses contact with anodized aluminum films, TOP NOBAC ALT can exhibit high antimicrobial and antiviral effect. Furthermore, the reaction occurs quickly, and it can inhibit the growth of bacteria in a short time. So it is recommended to adopt TOP NOBAC ALT for window blinds, interior goods, stationery, and other daily necessities.
OKUNO offers a wide range of surface finishing chemicals for aluminum from eco-friendly pretreatment processes to aluminum coloring dyes. Aluminum sealing agent with strong effectiveness against bacteria and viruses, TOP NOBAC ALT can show high effectiveness against Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus, Influenza A viruses, Feline Calici Virus and the likes.
In our evaluation about the antibacterial products-Test for antibacterial activity and efficacy, TOP NOBAC ALT can show the reduction rate over 99% against Escherichia coli and Staphylococcus aureus (in 5 minute contact). Also, TOP NOBAC ALT shows strong effectiveness in anti-virus test, as well exhibits the antiviral activity of Mv ≧4.5 against Influenzavirus A, and that of Mv ≧4.4 against feline calicivirus (Mv ≧2.0 means antiviral effectiveness). TOP NOBAC ALT demonstrates high dye fixation and corrosion resistance equivalent to nickel acetate-based sealants, so an ideal product for smartphones, tablets, and home appliances.
