Innovation: Si-Quat is an anti-viral clear coat developed to kill viruses including the pathogen of COVID-19. The coating is able to resist thousands of touches and creates an active layer that is self-sanitizing within minutes.
Expected Results: Si-Quat active coating has been developed and tested in the lab. In the coming months Si-Quat will be field tested and rolled out commercially. The greater goal of the product is to help communities re-open and make people feel more confident going out working, shopping and dining.
