GC INK™ Brown Report Released – Neutralizes 100% of Coronavirus and Influenza in under one minute

One year on, and as the world’s eyes remain focused on the rollout of the COVID-19 vaccines, Graphene Composites, a leading global nanomaterials engineering company, has unveiled a new technology – GC Ink™ – that could make our most vulnerable public spaces safer from the transmission of viruses and bacteria, including Coronavirus – by neutralising them.

GC Ink™ has been independently tested by Brown University to show 100% effectiveness at neutralising coronavirus and influenza viruses in under one minute, and the findings have been published on bioRxiv.

This fast-acting, extremely effective, and safe formulation of graphene and silver nanoparticles can be applied to masks and other PPE, and in particular, applied to filters in ventilation systems.  When used in filters and masks, GC Ink™ is highly effective at trapping and neutralising airborne coronaviruses and other viruses/bacteria for several weeks. When used in wipes, GC Ink also leaves a thin, highly effective, safe layer of protection against viruses and bacteria that lasts for at least 24 hours.

GC’s technology is highly effective because it has a dual-action mechanism: the negatively-charged surface of graphene oxide traps the positively-charged parts of water droplets and the protein spikes on coronavirus, and the silver nanoparticles release ions that oxidise the lipid membrane protecting coronavirus RNA, thereby neutralising it.
