Description of the technology

Professor Avi Domb is developing an anti- coronavirus coating that can eliminate 99% of the virus on public surfaces commonly touched by people. The easy application, self-sterilizing coating would deactivate viruses and microbes within minutes and last for weeks. The coating is safe for human contact, will not harm the surfaces themselves and is composed of compounds already in use within the pharmaceutical industry. The coating can be applied to metal, plastic, stone and other common surfaces.

The active antiviral agents to be applied are active polymers and oxidizing agents that destroy any microbial agent, including viruses.

Testing against viruses can be by any virus or MS2 surrogate
