UV-Cure, “Shark Skin Bio-mimicking” Antimicrobial Surfaces for Autonomous Vehicles

Members Only
Member Webinar Series

This free webinar will help coatings formulators and suppliers understand technical development considerations to meet performance criteria for antimicrobial surfaces. Over the past several years, transmission of organisms on surfaces has become a point of focus. This webinar will review the use of UV-cure, “shark skin bio-mimicking” antimicrobial surfaces for autonomous vehicles (AV). These surfaces are naturally antimicrobial and a preferable alternative for their minimized environmental impact.

The number of AVs is expected to grow dramatically in the next five years, as ride-hailing options replace traditional taxi and Uber-style services. Future ride-hailing AVs are expected to have rapid “turn around” after individual use that should result in a microbial-free “touch surfaces.” The webinar will also address how coatings with anti-biofouling properties may be used for medical implants and in hospitals.

The webinar will be led by Mike Dvorchak, Technical Director at Dvorchak Enterprises LLC.
