FilmTack developed an anti-fog face shield visor film that, according to the company, has additional protection against bacteria. This new film is in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
K. H. Poon, FilmTack director, sees the company’s new product as an improved material for face shield visors that provide protection against aerosols and mucous membranes for high-risk groups such as healthcare workers and students.
“Research institutions around the world have been focusing on the development of anti-microbial chemicals but lack the capability to move forward and incorporate these coatings onto face shield visors correctly and efficiently,” said Poon.
With simple sterilizing, the functionality of the visor film is expected to last about 10-14 days, according to the company. US and Korean personal protective equipment (PPE) manufacturers have generated interest in the material, according to FilmTack.
