NDC

What is NDC Nanotechnology?   

Nanotechnology is the science of controlling and manipulating matter on an atomic and molecular scale. Nanotechnology is based on the scientific theory that atoms and molecules behave with different physical and electrical characteristics once its size approaches nano dimensions in scale. This theory allows scientists and researchers to engineer new materials, components and machines.

The company has patents in the smallest scale of Nano science specializing in the 1-10nm range. This range gives their technology many more potential characteristics and applications than other nanotech.

After many years of work, the company has achieved many major technological and commercial breakthroughs through focused research and by employing effective application engineering techniques.

The company has achieved the world’s first official licence from the Chinese Government for Antimicrobial/Sterilization pharmaceuticals applicable to SARS, AI (Avian Influenza) and other virulent bacteria and virus infection.

The company supplies Nano-materials and is pleased to provide scientific and technical support to our customers, our business partners and their products worldwide.


NDC Explained

NDC stands for ‘Nano Disinfectant Composite’. NDC is a breakthrough in antimicrobial, sterilizing and disease prevention technology.

The development work for NDC is based on years of research into the antibacterial effects of silver particles (Ag) with some important and fundamental differences with safety and stability advantages over other products on the market today.

NDC is a non-corrosive anti-microbial powder composed of silver Nano-particles (1nm – 10nm in size dependant on the host material requirement) that can be applied to a various number of materials for manufacture, giving them a permanent antimicrobial effectiveness against harmful infectious organisms.

Due to the development of NDC particles at the very smallest scale, NDC becomes a far more powerful agent. At 5ppm concentration, NDC has been proven to kill 99% of bacteria within 10 seconds and 99.999% of bacteria within 10 minutes; including MRSA, and has been engineered to be completely non-toxic to human and animal life.


NDC Special Features

NDC is not an Ion. NDC is a metal and is recognised as the smallest Nano particle size. We have confirmed through TEM that NDC particle size is 1nm-2nm. This is much smaller than anything else available today, giving it a higher energy and much longer durability as it maximizes the effective surface area of the particles.

NDC is safe to use with absolutely no harmful effects. We have removed the negative ion of the nitric acid negative radical (NO3-) from the raw material AgNO3 successfully where others have not.

NDC is more stable against UV, heat and chemicals combined when it is applied to other manufacturing processes as well as end user products.

  • NDC can be used as a coating or mixed into raw materials for manufacture.
  • NDC is superior in chemical stability. NDC won’t change its colour nor convert the particles into aggregation and precipitation when mixed with other component types such as paints.
  • NDC when mixed into other raw materials for manufacturing will give its anti-microbial effect indefinitely.
  • Micro-organisms build no tolerance to NDC, giving NDC superior long lasting sterilizing qualities.
  • NDC can withstand heat up to 1300°C. This means it can be successfully used in the manufacturing of ceramic and porcelain products and enamelling.
  • NDC is cost effective. Due to its small scale, less concentration is need for the desired effect.
  • NDC will not change the chemical properties of the material it is added to.

Applications:

  • Disinfectant Paint

NDC mixed into paint at source will give the paint NDC antimicrobial properties. This is particularly effective for environments or confined spaces populated by human activity where airborne bacteria or viruses can cause issues. The NDC will remain 100% effective for the life of the paint.

Examples of use: Hospitals, Ships, Aircraft, Public Transport.

  • Plastics

NDC has been shown to successfully work with the following plastics:

M/B Chip: PP, LDPE, HDPE, LLDPE, ABS, PC, PES, GPPS, SAN, Nylon, PBT.

Injection moulded products, Blow moulded products, Vacuum pressure products, Master Batch chips, Extruded plastics (Film/Pipe/Profile extrusion).

  • Ceramics

Due to NDC’s ability to withstand high heat without changing its characteristics, NDC can be used in ceramic manufacture.

Examples of use: Bathroom products, medical equipment, laboratory equipment.

  • Textiles & Paper

PP & PE, Polyester, Polyamide, Wood, Leather, Paper and Natural textiles, Marble.

Examples of use: Industrial applications, building materials, flooring, silicone finishing materials, wallpaper.


Antimicrobial Mechanisms – How does it work?

When a microorganism, typically 40 times larger than a NDC particle, comes into contact with NDC it is destroyed. NDC acts as a catalyst, disabling the enzyme that bacteria, viruses, and fungi need for their oxygen intake.

NDC exerts its antimicrobial effect through both denaturation and oxidisation.

With denaturation, the bonding interactions for the essential structure of the enzyme that produces oxygen are disrupted. NDC particles generate reactive oxygen molecules in the air or in the water, which in turn destroy the cell wall membranes of bacteria.

For these reasons, bacteria cannot build up resistance to NDC.

As human cells are a tissue type, they are unaffected by these actions. Unlike most antibiotics or disinfectants, which are consumed while destroying bacteria, NDC remains unconsumed while constantly working as a catalyst, giving a permanent antimicrobial effect.
