Provides a stable antiviral effect without impairing the appearance of processed products
Antiviral and Antimicrobial agents NICCANON series has quickly responded to the growing demand for antiviral finishing. NICCANON RB-40 exhibits a high antiviral effect in the field of surface treatment such as synthetic leather and PVC leather by adding it to solvent-based surface coating agents.
It is spreading as a new functional agent that can obtain a stable antiviral effect while maintaining the appearance of the processed product.
How did we make it possible to apply antiviral processing to synthetic leather and PVC leather, which was difficult with conventional technology? Let us introduce the problem solving of NICCANON RB-40.
Long way to come across the solution
STEP 01 Back ground
Growing demand for antiviral processing
Since 2020, the demand for antiviral processing has increased significantly. For synthetic leather and PVC leather, conventional processing agents have problems such as impairing the appearance when coated and not being able to obtain the expected antiviral effect. Therefore, there has been a demand for a processing agent that can provide a stable and high antiviral effect.
STEP 02 Discovery of the factors
Unstable antiviral effect
In the field of synthetic leather and PVC leather, the addition of inorganic antiviral agents to surface coating agents has been considered.
When using inorganic antiviral agents mixed with coating agents, it was difficult to coat the antiviral component uniformly, and the antiviral performance could not be fully demonstrated.
STEP 03 Product Development
Application of antimicrobial agents to antiviral agents
NICCANON RB-40, which was originally developed as an antimicrobial agent for textiles, has been proven to have a high antiviral effect in antiviral tests, and has been sold as an antimicrobial and antiviral agent.
NICCANON RB-40 is mainly composed of organic surfactants and has high compatibility with solvent-based coating agents, so it was good at uniformly coating antiviral ingredients.
From this reason, it spread as an antiviral agent for synthetic leather and PVC leather.
In addition, the fact that it is highly transparent and does not impair the appearance of processed products also supports the high rate of adoption for synthetic leather.
STEP 04 Reaching to the Solution
