Sri Lanka's first ever antibacterial stationary collection, result of a collaboration between Sri Lanka Institute of Nanotechnology (SLINTEC) and Atlas, was unveiled on the 18th September at the Colombo International Book Fair. The event was attended by Asitha Samaraweera (Managing Director, Atlas), Dr. Azeez Mubarak (Chief of Research and Innovation, SLINTEC), Dr. Sanjeewa Wijesinghe (Senior Research Scientist, SLINTEC), Dr. Rangika De Silva (Head of Technology Transfer, SLINTEC), and a number of executives from Atlas.
The stationary range, which has an antibacterial efficacy of 99.9%, is based on SLINTEC Sterile, a technology developed by SLINTEC initially as a transparent antimicrobial coating.
The Sri Lanka Institute of Nanotechnology entered into a partnership with Hirdaramani to commercialize next generation wearable technology which detects respiratory patters to indicate face mask effectiveness and leakages. This smart sensor technology is set to add value to Hirdaramani's face mask exports.
