Zinc ions have redox properties and will pierce the membrane protein structure of bacteria, making them inactive and achieve the purpose of sterilization. When the bacteria are killed, the powerful zinc ions will be released from the dissolved bacteria, and then contact with other bacteria to complete new sterilization tasks, so it shows strong bactericidal activity.
The antibacterial, mildew and deodorizing function of nano zinc oxide is reflected in two aspects.
– 1st is the protection of the paint itself after production, transportation, storage and use;
– 2nd is that the coated surface has a killing effect on bacteria.
In addition, nano-zinc oxide also has the functions of shielding ultraviolet rays, anti-corrosion, flame retardant and removing formaldehyde odor.
