Have you ever seen self-sanitizing PPE?

Have you ever seen self-sanitizing PPE?

The demand for self-sanitizing textiles and materials is growing as consumers internalize the threat of the ongoing pandemic. As a result, many scientists and tech companies are working together to answer this need and give individuals peace of mind. Most recently and according to various news sources in India, Muse Nanobots—a subsidiary of Muse Wearables—has developed a special nanotech-coating that will enable any surface to be a self-sanitizing textile. The company worked alongside Chicago-based Situ Biosciences and the collaboration was supported by the Indian Institute of Technology Madras' incubation cell. It is believed that the innovation "can eliminate coronavirus within five minutes of contact." It is believed that the coating can be applied to a wide range of products—from face masks and PPE gowns to packaging materials and more.

The study gauged the effectiveness of the antiviral coating on coronavirus 229E, and showed that it inactivated 99.99% of the virus within five minutes. The coating can be applied to any kind of fabric, including face masks, PPE gowns and packaging material. It lasts up to 60 washings when washed under 70 degrees Celsius.

Sai Prasanth, co-founder of Muse Nanobots, was quoted by the Business Standard as saying: “We are the first of the Indian technology companies to prove, via clinical testing and validation, the coating efficacy of our product on coronavirus. Muse Nanobots coating has also displayed strong antibacterial activity on human pathogenic bacteria such as E. coli and Staphylococcus aureus. The coating makes the textile surface self-sanitizing and provides a germ-resistant surface.”

The company plans to install nanocoating machines in 15 textiles companies that make items such as curtains, bedsheets, office and casual clothing, sportswear, PPE and packaging material. In addition to direct installations at companies, Muse Nanobots has its own coating facility in Bengaluru where textile companies can send fabric for treatment.
