CenturyPly has been practicing silver nanotechnology in its products for five years, and they were already equipped with antifungal and antibacterial properties. But now the ViroKill technology has stepped up the game of the CenturyPly in the plywood industry.
All the plywood and laminates manufactured by CenturyPly and Century Laminates are designed using nanotechnology-based Self Doctoring Surface Treatment against viruses via a safety mechanism. The nanoparticles used in the treatment are antiviral, antifungal, antibacterial, and antimicrobial. This technology is named Virokill, and all Virokill products can kill 99.99% of viruses that come in contact.
To put it simply, whenever viruses, bacteria, fungi, or microbes come in contact with products equipped with Virokill technology, the energized and highly-activated nanoparticles will kill them via contact killing method. Thus, ensuring that all your furniture made from CenturyPly plywood is safe, healthy, and hygienic.
The effect of the Virokill technology equipped with plywood and laminates does not deplete with time unless the surface of the furniture is chemically or physically damaged. Your furniture is safe and free from all microbes, including viruses, for longer because the nanoparticles are embedded in the polymer matrix system.
The effect of Virokill technology will not get affected by a change in temperature, rise in humidity, or even when exposed to sunlight. Only structural damage can affect the Virokill properties. Also, it does not react to paint or external polishing.
The furniture treated with Virokill technology can kill 99.99% of viruses. Thus it is safe to be touched by everyone, including children. All the products used are non-hazardous and non-toxic.
Although the products of CenturyPly are now embedded with the Virokill technology, all the other properties applicable to the products are still retained.
All the CenturyPly products equipped with Virokill technology are tested at the Biotech Testing services laboratory. Antimicrobial Efficacy Test and Antiviral Efficacy Test of the specified virus has been done as per international standard. The results have proved that CenturyPly Plywoods and CenturyLaminates can effectively kill 99.99% of viruses. The killing process starts as soon as the virus comes in contact. However, completing the entire process may take a few minutes to hours.
Note: The Virokill technology will activate only when the virus comes in contact with the furniture’s surface. Moreover, standardized tests show this technology is effective against most viruses. But we still do not have proof that it is effective Covid-19 or not.
Health is everyone’s priority; thus, this revolutionary technology offered by CenturyPly will safeguard your loved ones from the invisible threat of viruses. Whether you are looking for plywood or want to laminate your furniture, CenturyPly’s Virokill technology is at your rescue, and it’s a valuable addition that keeps furniture virus free lifetime.
