LAMILUX (Rehau, Germany) has developed a new composite panel system, called LAMILUX AntiBac, that features a nanosilver-coated surface designed to provide antibacterial properties and kill germs within just a few hours. The material was initially developed specifically as a wall coating for operating theaters in hospitals. LAMILUX notes that medical experts estimate that 15,000 patients die from hospital infection every year. In addition to clinical use, other applications of the panels could be refrigerated warehouses, cold stores and refrigerated vehicles as well as in processing areas and slaughter houses. The material is being trialled at the Asklepios Clinic in Bad Abbach, Germany. LAMILUX developed the technology with nanosilver specialist Rent-a-Scientist (Regensburg, Germany) nanosilver research.
