NHS Smart Solutions Awards
Within a study of the British National Health Service (NHS), a series of highly contaminated surfaces have been coated with NP Liquid Glass in different hospitals, to reduce the load of hospital germs without adding any active substances. At the end of the evaluation period it has been proven that the grade of contamination of surfaces treated with the liquid glass barrier layer in the clinical area was significantly reduced in comparison to the untreated test surfaces and provides an improvement of the efficiency and effect of the cleaning.
Ultra-thin layers lead to yield increase. The Jury explains that the decision is based on the following arguments: Protection of resources, reduction of chemical aggressive cleanser and environmental toxins, saving of drinking water
