  • Antimicrobial coating for PPE: This is helpful to safeguard doctors, nurses’ health workers, and citizens from getting infected from COVID-19 by killing and preventing the spread of microbes once they come in contact with the coated PPE surface. In this spray, the antimicrobial acting agents are copper, silver and other active ingredients and thus these elements help to ensure limited penetration and accumulation of microbial contaminants on PPE. The spray coating is affordable and can be easily deployable to the existing structure available at PPE manufacturers. It can be sprayed or dipped onto any kind of surface including textiles and other medical device surfaces to get rid of microbes.
  • 3D printed Ear Guard: The ear guard holds the face mask strap in a place without giving pressure to the ear. Hence, the masks can be worn effortlessly for hours without pain or discomfort to the wearer. They are made in a free size to fit all, using 3D printers using polymer resins.
