our virucidal ink
Our unique, patent pending virucidal and germicidal ink for use in a broad range of applications including PPE, filtration solutions and high touch surfaces, that captures and neutralises viruses and bacteria
Our patent-pending graphene oxide/silver nanoparticle formulations have been independently tested to show 100% virucidal efficacy against coronavirus OC43 and the Influenza A H1N1 virus - in under one minute.
GC Ink™ is also highly effective against other viruses and all bacteria. Formulations can be adapted to coat virtually any surface from plastics to textiles, to filter materials.
GC’s technology is highly effective because it has a dual-action mechanism: the negatively-charged surface of graphene oxide traps the positively-charged parts of water droplets and the protein spikes on coronavirus; the silver nanoparticles release ions that oxidize the lipid membrane protecting coronavirus RNA, thereby neutralizing it.
GC Ink™ formulations are protected by patents pending.
How this works in filters
When used in filters, GC Ink™ traps and neutralizes airborne coronaviruses and other viruses/bacteria for several weeks.
There is also little or no reduction in airflows; this is important for maintaining the efficiency of ventilation systems.
GC Ink™ pre-filters can be quickly installed in existing ventilation systems without the need for retro-fitting.
This is a fast, affordable, highly-effective way of making the air we breathe cleaner and safer.
