DYPHOX® uses the photodynamic effect: ambient light is absorbed by a photosensitizer which activates aerial oxygen to reactive oxygen which kills microbes immediately. It continuously eliminates a wide range of microbes on surfaces when applied as thin antimicrobial coating. It also acts as a highly effective additional safety layer against transmission of microbes through surfaces. The antimicrobial effect can also be transferred into other materials (e.g. paint, elastomers, liquids, tissue) by implementing the photosensitizer as an additive into the designated product.
