Against the virus effective wood paint

Turkish academics developed a wood stain effective against the virus. Istanbul Technical University (ITU) Chemistry Department academic staff member Prof. Dr. Yusuf Yağcı and Mehmet Bilgehan Bilgiç, a graduate student at the Department of Polymer Science and Technology at ITU Graduate Education Institute, developed the world's first antiviral wood paint.

Bilgiç's article, prepared with his consultant Yağcı, was published under the title "Permanent Hygiene on Wooden Surfaces". Thanks to the new technology inspired by Yağcı's antimicrobial studies in the past and developed by Kubilay Boya, viruses and bacteria are destroyed on wooden surfaces.


The article emphasizes the role of the paint industry in the fight against COVID-19 and mentions that antiviral coatings stand out as a permanent, fast and reliable solution to prevent transmission by touching. Thanks to its antiviral feature, the new technology will play an important role in the fight against COVID-19.
