Title (EN) LIGHT-ACTIVATED ANTIMICROBIAL AND ANTIVIRAL MATERIALS
(FR) MATERIAUX ANTIMICROBIENS ET ANTIVIRAUX PHOTOACTIVES
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A substrate such as a woven or nonwoven fabric bound with a light-activated dye alone or in combination with additional conventional antimicrobial agents. The substrate is impregnated with a light-activated non-leachable dye having antimicrobial and/or antiviral characteristics which can be imparted to the substrate. The dye is bound by a cationic or anionic binder such as a water soluble polymer or carrageenan. Upon exposure to normal light, the dye generates singlet oxygen that kills microorganisms and viruses.
(FR)L'invention concerne un substrat, par exemple une étoffe tissée ou non tissée, lié à un colorant photoactivé, seul ou en combinaison avec des agents antimicrobiens classiques supplémentaires. Le substrat est imprégné avec un colorant non lixiviable photoactivé présentant des caractéristiques antimicrobiennes et/ou antivirales pouvant être conférées au substrat. Le colorant est lié par un liant cationique ou anionique tel qu'un polymère hydrosoluble ou de la carraghénine. Après exposition à une lumière normale, le colorant produit de l'oxygène singulet qui tue les micro-organismes et les virus.
