PPG, Corning working to secure EPA registration for COVID-19-repellant paint
Corning and PPG Industries say they are working to register an antiviral paint product with the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA; Washington, DC) that contains Corning Guardiant, a glass-ceramic technology that has proven efficacy in killing the COVID-19 virus. The technology’s efficacy was demonstrated in tests approved by the EPA.
The product contains copper, which has shown antimicrobial efficacy when applied to surfaces, according to Corning. “Our scientists have developed this unique paint additive using our highly engineered glass-ceramic technology,” says Corning chairman and CEO Wendell Weeks. “We are excited about the new lab results and look forward to working with our valued partner PPG.”
