The Project

QUATCARE provides sustainable eco-friendly antimicrobial solutions for industrial water treatment systems and heating/cooling filtration applications reducing maintenance and infection risks from bacteria. Our patented system is comprised of embedding low-cost quaternary ammonim compounds in surface structure of materials during manufacture or applied as durable coatings. When our system is incorporated into the water treatment systems for manufacturing it supports high water flow rates and kills bacteria on contact without the addition of toxic chemicals or costly traditional filters that rapidly clog, increasing water recycling thereby reducing water pollution disposal. Similarly, we provide bacterial control through antimicrobial coatings for heat-exchange surfaces.
