The latest glass technologies are making buildings, spaces and objects stronger, safer and healthier. Glass is a versatile material, ideal for maintaining a sanitised living environment. AGC Glass Europe continues its pursuit of solutions to protect our health and preserve our society.
A study(1) published in the Coatings Journal with support from AGC was done on different materials ranging from metallic materials to float glass, acrylic glass (such as Plexiglas®, Perspex® etc.) and coated glass (Planibel Easy).
The results show that the time needed to inactivate 90% of the SARS-Cov-2 viral particles is 37.5% shorter for Planibel Easy exposed to daylight than for float glass or acrylic glass. This means that using Planibel Easy greatly reduces the risk of viral transmission when we touch the surface.
