FEATURED NEWS

July 2020: Hand hygiene is an important part of the U.S. and worldwide response to COVID-19. While both the CDC and FDA prefer washing hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds this is not always possible especially as the country opens up and individuals go back to work, shopping and traveling. In response to this urgent need for hand sanitizers Cytonix is now manufacturing a quaternary ammonium salt based, 4-hour, long lasting hand sanitizer that is registered with the FDA. This hand sanitizer not only instantly kills 99.99% of germs on your hands, but also coats your hand with protective anti-bacterial barrier that provides persistent protection against germs.

February 2019: Oleophobic coatings for membranes and fine mesh are used to create venting devices. In the past, oleophobicity grade 8, the highest grade and most oil repellency was achieved with long chain perfluoroalkyl fluorocarbons with greater or equal to C8 chains. Due to environmental concerns these chemicals and their breakdown products (PFOA and PFOS) can no longer be used. This has limited the ability to achieve oleophobicity Grade 8. However, Cytonix has recently synthesized a unique coating, FluoroPel Membrane 8, that provides oleophobicity grade 8, and contains no PFOA or PFOS.

November 2018: 5G cellular networks operate on millimeter wavelength (mmWave) frequencies (typically over 28 GHz) to offer broader bandwidths and higher data rates. The use of high frequencies result in strong propagation impairments due to rain. Rain attenuation appears to be dependent on frequency, rain-drop size and water-film formation on antenna. Hydrophobic and superhydrophobic coatings can be used to reduce or eliminate rain fade. FluoroThane TS is a low VOC, superhydrophobic coating offered by Cytonix to help 5G cellular networks perform better in bad weather.  WX2100 is an easy solution for restoring superhydrophobic properties on 5G antenna in the field.  

July 2017: Cytonix introduced FluorAcryl 7298, an oleophobic, anti-fouling and magic marker repellent additive for UV-curable coatings and photo resists. This additive at 2% makes most acrylate UV curable resins oil, water and stain repellent. With 7298 contact angles for water >100° and for oil > 75° can be expected.
