Abstract: front page image
(EN)Provided is a system enhancing control of bacterial growth by combining antimicrobial additives and surface micro-structure patterns on outer surfaces of a device, such as a lighting fixture. The system physically decreases bio-adhesion between microbes and substrates applied to the outer surfaces. The system combines a surface micro-structured component with an antimicrobial component to generate a single component.
(FR)La présente invention concerne un système améliorant la régulation de la croissance bactérienne par la combinaison d'additifs antimicrobiens et de motifs de micro-structure de surface sur des surfaces extérieures d'un dispositif, tel qu'un appareil d'éclairage. Le système diminue physiquement la bio-adhésion entre des microbes et des substrats appliqués sur les surfaces extérieures. Ce système combine un composant micro-structuré de surface et un composant antimicrobien pour générer un composant unique.
