The biocide-free germ-repellent plastic polyethylene resin Ka Shui Group in collaboration with Nano and Advanced Materials Institute Limited (NAMI) was awarded the Gold Medal in this exhibition of invention. The awarded item namely, “The Biocide-Free Germ-Repellent Plastic”, is an advanced materials technology and able to make antimicrobial possible without using biocides. Instead of killing germs, the biocide-free germ-repellent plastic prevents germs from adsorbing and colonizing on the surface to avoid cross-transmission of germs in use. It is proven to be leach-free, non-toxic and will not give rise to drug-resistant “Superbugs”. Based on the advantages of the materials technology, Ka Shui Group together with NAMI will accelerate the research and strive to further apply this biocide-free germ-repellent plastic technology to medical field.
