Purpose and goal
The aim of the Project is to evaluate biocide-free alternatives hindering microbiological growth on paint films.
Expected results and effects
If the concept is successful we will start projects which include industrial partners.
Planned approach and implementation
Additives will be added to Commercial Paints. We will test the intended mechanism in the laboratory and place samples outdoors.
