Antibacterial Machine-made Carpet


Carpet is a key decorative element which provides the principles of decoration via the use of color and texture. Recently, the carpet industry has lost market share because based on the findings, covering a floor with a carpet increases the illness, asthma and allergies. The use of soft floor coverings in schools, hospitals and other health care facilities has long been controversial as carpet is thought to contribute to the presence of microorganisms in the indoor environment. Indoor air is a complex mixture of bio-aerosols and non-biological particles. Among the most important of these are human and animal occupants that shed skin scales and other fragments, mold spores, viruses, and bacteria. Two types of antimicrobial treatments exist for carpets and coatings. The first type is used in the manufacturing process. The other type is an antimicrobial additive incorporated in a treatment of the carpet fibers during manufacturing.

Advantage of Using Nanotechnology

Zinc oxide has antibacterial properties, and reduction of the particle size up to the nanometer range because of creating high surface area further improves the antibacterial effect. The antibacterial property of this product was evaluated by ISIRI 11070.
