Given that no existing solution combines anti-microbial and self-cleaning properties indoors in the same coating, through the research and development of the AMSCopper project, the participating SMEs will be able to provide their customers with a functional and reliable technology, with the following unique selling points:
- Metal articles plated with copper composite coatings of high aesthetics presenting enhanced anti-microbial activity and self cleaning character
- Doped-TiO2 nano-particles able to be activated under indoor light irradiation.
- Electrolytic baths for applying the AMSCopper coatings
- Unique and patentable pulse current electroplating process enabling very high codeposition rate of doped TiO2 nanoparticles in the copper matrix.
