Reactive Surfaces Extends its Patent Protection in U.S. and Middle East for Antimicrobial Coatings

April 16, 2014

Reactive Surfaces has been granted an additional U.S. patent covering its non-toxic peptidic antimicrobial coatings.  The claimed coatings comprise short polymers of naturally-occurring amino acids.  The patented compositions expand the peptide actives protected in antimicrobial ProteCoat coating compositions, alone and in cocktails of such peptides or traditional biocides.  Toxicity studies of these actives suggest that no EPA-mandated cautionary statements will be required.
