Very excited to announce a preferred manufacturing partnership with Sun Filter Co Ltd, a large filter manufacturer based in Thailand.
Sun Filter is one of Thailand’s largest manufacturers and exporters of filters particularly for the automotive sector with longstanding customer relationships worldwide.
The partnership will strengthen the commercialisation of GC Ink®, a patent pending graphene oxide and silver nanoparticle formulation with a proven ability to kill viruses and bacteria. GC Ink forms a virucidal layer on fabric materials and has been independently tested and ISO certified to have at least 99% virucidal efficacy when applied as a coating to filter materials. Fast-acting, effective and safe, GC Ink successfully traps and kills airborne coronaviruses and other pathogens, including influenza – and because of its unique technology due to targeting the viral lipid membrane, it is effective against new SARS-CoV-2 variants, such as Omicron.
Sun Filter will focus on the manufacture of GC Ink coated filter products in Thailand and broader commercialisation selling directly to the retail consumer markets, governmental, healthcare and military sectors. With an acute focus by government and health institutions globally on good quality air to improve indoor ventilation and reducing exposure to airborne pathogens like SARS-CoV-2, GC Ink coated air filters is a fast, affordable, and effective way of making air cleaner and safer, without the need for retrofitting.
“We have been impressed by Sun Filter’s expertise and respected position in the global filter market” said Sandy Chen, GC CEO & Co-Founder. “As demand for GC Ink rises, Sun Filter is well positioned to scale production of GC Ink coated filters to meet demand across Asia and other parts of the globe. They have proved an excellent partner with a collaborative and professional approach to take this latest virucidal product to market. Designed to be effective against the new Omicron coronavirus variant and others that follow, air filters with GC Ink are a powerful tool to fight the pandemic, now and for the future – and Sun Filter is a key manufacturing partner to meet expected demand.”
Kanate Ratapipat, COO, said “We have always pursued advance technologies and innovations to incorporate into our filtration products. GC has impressed us on many levels; the expertise, experience and professionalism are unparalleled. Their vision and ethics are truly world changing. It has been a real pleasure to collaborate with them, and we greatly look forward to this long-term partnership to make the world a better place.”
GC Ink™ formulations are protected by patents pending.
