Berger, IIT Guwahati develop surface disinfectant to fight Covid-19

Saturday, 17 October 2020

Coating major Berger Paints, in collaboration with IIT Guwahati, developed an alcohol-free surface disinfectant which, they claimed, can stay active on a variety of surfaces for an extended period of hours, and fight off bacteria and COVID-like viruses.The product, developed by a group of scientists led by Prof Biman B Mandal, was launched on Friday, an IIT Guwahati statement said.

 

 

 

 


Berger Paints said that the problem with alcohol-based surface disinfectants is that consumers have to sanitise surfaces again and again in a day and the company has tapped IIT Guwahati to bring a solution to that issue.The product "is different from normal alcohol-based sanitiser as it stays active for an extended period of hours on the application surface. It forms a protective nano-silver coating which fights off bacteria and virus for a longer duration as validated by standard protocols," Prof Mandal said.
