Lamberti participates to MOBACT project
The development of new sustainable materials and coatings to tackle hospital infections
The development of new sustainable materials and coatings to tackle hospital infections.
The objective of MOBACT, as the project has been baptized, is to develop a technology to produce new coating materials containing active substances to avoid the accumulation and proliferation of microorganisms and bacteria reducing the risk of colonization of sanitary surfaces .
The new antimicrobial compounds will be included in polymeric matrices to make possible their use both in the form of water-based varnishes as well as injected products.
This is a strategic project financed by Agència Valenciana de la Innovació (AVI) and is carried out in collaboration by Aimplas (Plastics Technological Institute, Valencia ), ITM-UPV (the Institute of Materials Technology and the Institute of Chemical Technology of the Polytechnic University of Valencia , the Lamberti company, Industrias Tayg, as well as the La Fe Health Research Institute (IIS La Fe, Valencia) .
Lamberti will develop several coating formulations containing different antimicrobian additives to be applied on plastic, wood and aluminium used in Hospital furnishings.
