12/28, 2020 : Inactivation of COVID-19 has been demonstrated by a third-party organization.
December.28,2020 : QTEC (Kobe Testing Center, Japan Textile Products Quality Technology Center) has demonstrated that COVID-19 can be inactivated.
The antiviral and antimicrobial compound (special quaternary ammonium salt) contained in GlossWell #360 Type Anti-Viral has been proven to inactivate COVID-19. The special antiviral and antimicrobial coating of GlossWell #360 Type Anti-Viral has a strong adhesion to the surface on which it is applied, and it also reduces viruses and bacteria on the coating within a short period of time (99.9% reduction after 10 minutes). We hope that COVID-19 will help reduce the risk of contact infections by creating an antiviral environment through coating in areas where many people come into contact with it or where droplets must be avoided.
[ Antiviral test using COVID-19 ]
◯ Client: Presence, Inc.
◯ Testing site: QTEC (Kobe Testing Center, Japan Textile Products Quality Technology Center)
◯ Date of the test result report: December 28, 2020
◯ Test method: ISO 21702
◯ Test virus: SARS-CoV-2 / NIID isolate; JPN/TY/WK-521 (distributed by the National Institute of Infectious Diseases)
◯ Sample : GlossWell #360 Type Anti-Viral ( unprocessed product )
◯ Test sample : GlossWell #360 Type Anti-Viral ( processed product )
◯ Test result: Antiviral activity value after 24 hours of exposure ≧3.2 (▶︎ Numerical explanation)
▶︎ Numerical explanation : Antiviral activity value ≧3.2 means that the antiviral activity value is 99.9% or more than 1/1000.
※ The antiviral activity value that is considered acceptable by ISO 21072 is ≧2.0, so the results of this test far exceed the acceptable value.
Paint manufacturer’s statement
Since GlossWell #240 / #750 Type Anti-Viral has the same composition / component structure as GlossWell #360 Type Anti-Viral and uses the same antiviral and antibacterial compounds (special quaternary ammonium salts), chemical considerations lead us to conclude that it is as effective against COVID-19 as GlossWell #360 Type Anti-Viral.
Export of GlossWell Type Anti-Viral from Japan
Please let more people know about this page!
GlossWell #360 / #240 / #750 Type Anti-Viral is a paint. Since paint is classified as a hazardous material internationally, the cost of exporting it from Japan by air or sea is very high, and it is very difficult for an individual to handle the payment of freight and customs clearance for importation.
In this page, we are announcing a special paint that contains a very effective anti-bacterial compound against COVID-19 : GlossWell #360 / #240 / #750 Type Anti-Viral to corporations, trading companies and government officials in your country. We are disclosing all the necessary evidence to prove the efficacy against COVID-19. All of this evidence has been tested and obtained by public institutions in Japan.
GlossWell #360 / #240 / #750 Type Anti-Viral forms a very tough and special coating with anti-bacterial properties. The coating will adhere to the surface for a long time. If a similar special coating does not exist in your country, please inform any person or entity that can import GlossWell #360 / #240 / #750 Type Anti-Viral or any government official of the existence of this page!
Pathogenic Type : About Anti-Bacterial Special Paint
Pathogenic type anti-fungal paint : GlossWell #360 / #240 / #750 : Type Anti-Viral is an inorganic (real glass) glass coating based on a special quaternary ammonium salt (approved by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry for its effectiveness against the new coronavirus) that inhibits or suppresses the growth of a wide range of pathogenic microorganisms such as pathogens (viruses, bacteria, molds, yeasts). This is the latest special paint with anti-viral, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal functions, blended with special quaternary ammonium salts (certified by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry to be effective against the new coronavirus).
GlossWell #360 / #240 / #750 : Type Anti-Viral is a paint that can be applied to existing products and equipment to provide an extremely long-lasting and tough anti-sterilization coating. It provides a stable, long-lasting anti-sterilization environment and a safe public health environment. The cured coating formed by GlossWell #360 / #240 / #750 : Type Anti-Viral has excellent super water repellency, super mold release performance (repels oil), weather resistance for outdoor use, and chemical resistance to ethanol and other chemicals. In addition, its anti-bacterial properties are unaffected by the effects of ultraviolet rays outdoors or by changes in PH or temperature caused by changes in weather conditions. [ Made in Japan ].
Mechanism of GlossWell #360 / #240 / #750 Type Anti-Viral
GlossWell #360 / #240 / #750 Type Anti-Viral is a one-component special ceramic paint (called a binder) with a structure of special quaternary ammonium salts arranged in a strong adhesion to various materials.
GlossWell # 360 Type ANTI-VIRAL mechanism
GlossWell # 360 Type ANTI-VIRAL is a one-part special ceramic paint (called binder) that has strong adhesion to various equipment, and special compounds with antiviral / antibacterial functions derived from ammonium are arranged. It has a structure.
▼ The following figure illustrates the mechanism by which the special quaternary ammonium salt contained in GlossWell #360 Type Anti-Viral inhibits and suppresses the growth of COVID-19 and other viruses with envelope membranes (such as influenza A viruses). Quaternary ammonium salts, which are also surfactants, disrupt the lipid bilayers and membrane proteins of the envelope of COVID-19. The virus dies when the envelope membrane is destroyed.
Advantages of being a coating material
For example, there are many products with antimicrobial function at the manufacturing stage, such as underwear, clothing, bedding, eyeglass frames, train leathers, cutting boards, shoes, etc. However, it is not easy to take antimicrobial measures against “things that are already there, things that exist, and things that cannot be moved. However, when it comes to antibacterial measures against “things that are already there, things that already exist, and things that cannot be moved,” it is not so easy. Although it is possible to “disinfect” such objects with ethanol, how many measures are available in the world to create an “antibacterial environment”?
The answer to this question was to develop a paint with anti-bacterial functions (anti-virus, anti-bacteria, anti-fungus). GlossWell #360 / 240 / #750 Type Anti-Viral is a special paint created based on this concept, which provides excellent anti-sterilization performance, super water repellency, and super release performance against oil components. In addition, the entire coating is based on naturally occurring inorganic glass, which provides excellent adhesion (siloxane bonding) to various substrates. After complete curing, the paint film is colorless and transparent. The coating is very smooth to the touch, and there is no sense of discomfort in appearance even if it is applied to existing objects. Of course, anyone can use this product.
About anti-bacterial environment
An antiseptic environment is an environment that inhibits or prevents the growth of pathogenic viruses and bacteria in a variety of environments. In the case of viruses, they can only multiply within the cells they infect, but it has been confirmed that some viruses can survive for a relatively long time in general environments. In particular, preparing an antibacterial environment in advance for objects that are touched by an unspecified number of people and places that are considered to be dangerous is extremely important for preventing contact infection under the current situation of the new coronavirus, which appears to be spreading. In addition, it will become an important social point in the social environment from the viewpoint of public health after this crisis is over.
Survival time of COVID-19 in the environment
◯ Airborne (when spread by coughing droplets): 3 hours
◯ Copper surface: 4 hours
◯ Cardboard surface: 24 hours
◯ Plastic surface: 2 to 3 days
◯ Stainless steel surface: 2 to 3 days
[ 3/20 AFP ] : A research team from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the University of California, Los Angeles, and Princeton University published data in the New England Journal of Medicine.
■ Rotavirus, the causative agent of infant enteritis, can survive for more than 10 days in the general environment.
■ The AIDS virus can survive for several days on the surface of various substrates in the general environment.
■ Influenza viruses can survive for 8 to 48 hours in a general environment. etc.
