The latest pandemic and the emerging of new types of pathogens caused a surge in demand for the BIOSAFE® antimicrobial coating. Mobilsept Hygienic Protect®, along with its suppliers, has worked to meet that demand for the automotive market. The perpetual antimicrobial coating made less then 30 minutes by the Mobilsept HP® helps to prevent for 6-8 months the transfer of infectious diseases by eliminating the growth of virus, stain- and odor-causing bacteria, fungi mold and mildew in the passenger area including the A/C system. The  BIOSAFE® antimicrobials have ASTM-E,EU-ECHA, REACH, GBAC  industry standars approvals and also used in a variety of personal protective equipment, including laundry additives for health care uniforms and for food service towels used in restaurants and cafeterias. "We continue to find new ways to ensure availability of our BIOSAFE® antimicrobials to meet our customers' needs," Shiming Wo, Gelest vice president and general manager of life science, said in a statement.
