NGAP AQC Ag-1103 consists of silver atomic quantum clusters (AQCs) of between 5 and 15 atoms in size. The AQCs are dispersed in an acrylic monomer at a silver concentration of 1 wt%. AQCs in this sub-nanometer size range possess powerful antimicrobial properties that far exceed that of silver ions or silver nanoparticles. This product can be used as an additive to confer antimicrobial properties to polymer coatings. It is nontoxic and colorless, and has significant, long-lasting antimicrobial properties at levels as low as 10 ppm silver in the final coating.
- Ag content (g/liter) → 10
