BLOCKING THE VIRUS
Şişecam develops the "V-Block" technology against viruses and bacteria on glass surfaces.
While steps towards normalization in the context of the global pandemic have accelerated all over the world, Şişecam Group has developed a special coating technology that neutralizes viruses and bacteria on glass surfaces, thus introducing a solution that will significantly contribute to the battle against the pandemic.
The V-Block technology developed by the Şişecam Science, Technology and Design Center offers permanent hygiene thanks to its special formula and application technique. Şişecam Group will apply the technology primarily to its glassware products that will be sold across global markets after they are offered for sale in Turkey. Due to its active nature, the formula, which is applied on products under high temperatures during production, is also ideal for spaces with high-contamination risk such as hotels, restaurants, cafes, hospitals and refectories, as well as household use.
The Antimicrobial V-Block technology has successfully passed food contact tests, and neutralizes viruses and bacteria on glass surfaces. Independent institutions have certified that glass products coated with Antimicrobial V-Block technology prevent the growth and spread of many different viruses and bacteria such as Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli bacteria, Bacteriophage, Feline calicivirus (FCV), Adenovirus, Canine parvovirus, Hepatitis A Virus, Herpes Simplex Virus, Influenza A, Murine Norovirus, Poliovirus, Rhinovirus, Rotavirus and Vaccinia virus. Testing and development processes are ongoing for the technology that is proven to be effective against the coronavirus according to preliminary findings. Paşabahçe products produced with this technology preserve all their high-quality characteristics such as color, transparency and light transmission. Thus, hygiene and maximum protection are guaranteed, without compromising consumer pleasure from using the products.
