Antimicrobials are used as additives in paint coatings to inhibit the growth of microorganisms such as bacteria, mold and mildew that causes odor, stains, and/or product degradation on applied coatings. Antimicrobial coatings are of major use in places where human contact with a paint or coating is too high, so as to prevent the transfer of microbes to and from people by touch. With the same physical and performance characteristics as standard coil coatings, antimicrobial coatings are available in polyester, urethane, epoxy, acrylic, and polyvinylidiene paint systems. The most commonly used antimicrobial coatings are copper, silver, and zinc. Due to its antimicrobial properties, silver is used in sutures for surgical wounds, as a silver nitrate solution to eliminate blindness in newborns, and to treat typhoid, anthrax, and other such infectious diseases.
