Durable Coating Kills Covid Virus Other Germs In Minutes Examples
Presented by Michigan News

A polyurethane coating, developed by a team of University of Michigan engineers and immunologists, is the first durable coating that can quickly kill bacteria and viruses and keep on killing them for months at a time. The technology has proven deadly to SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes COVID-19), E. coli, MRSA, and other pathogens. According to Anish Tuteja, a material science and engineering professor at U-M, the coating can be a game changer in our fight against germ-laden places.
