Coating in the hospital


Photocatalytic Coating with Antibacterial Effect (MARUSYO SANGYO CO.,LTD.)

The spread of COVID-19 has raised awareness about the importance of disinfection. On the other hand, daily chemical disinfection has been a heavy burden for hospitals, in terms of medical workers’ time and costs. Photocatalytic coating technology creates an antibacterial effect on surfaces that reacts to room light. In addition, the coating can provide a safer work environment for medical staff by preventing secondary infection.

Overview of the Project
UNIDO applied photocatalytic coatings in a total of eight hospitals in three countries (India, Kenya, and Mongolia) to demonstrate and test the elimination of pathogenic microorganisms. The project provided training on coating techniques as well as helped increase medical workers’ knowledge about general hygiene practices at hospitals. In each country, a swab sample was sent to a laboratory and proved that the coating is effective in eliminating microorganisms. The coating successfully contributed to reducing the time medical workers spent on disinfection.
