Inhibit Coatings is a start-up company that produces high-performance antimicrobial paints and coatings for food safety and healthcare. It uses a unique silver nanoparticle functionalization method that produces physically robust, low-leaching, and long lifetime antimicrobial coatings. Its technology produces silver particles evenly dispersed throughout the polymer coating and bound to the resin backbone. Only very small amounts of silver are required, typically less than 0.1%, owing to silver’s excellent and well-documented performance as an antimicrobial agent, with proven activity against over 650 different microorganisms. Its technology has been applied to a number of resin systems including acrylics, epoxies, and polyurethanes. It was founded by Dr. Eldon Tate and Prof. Jim Johnston in 2016.Something looks off?
