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.

In Sri Lanka, we’re seeing a number of homegrown solutions have surfaced from pioneering research hubs like the SLINTEC Sterile coating from Sri Lanka Institute of Nanotechnology Pvt Ltd (SLINTEC). To kill viruses and other microbes, SLINTEC Sterile relies on a chemical reaction called photocatalysis. In simple terms, light hits the coat and begins a chemical reaction. This reaction attacks the molecules of the virus and other microbes both on the surface and in the surrounding air.

Antimicrobial coatings are rapidly emerging as a primary component of the global mitigation strategy of pathogens. The SLINTEC team has developed a transparent antimicrobial coating that can be applied on a number of surfaces without tarnishing their aesthetic appearance. Most importantly, this technology eradicates microorganisms on the coating applied surface as well as in the surrounding air.


The SLINTEC proprietary technology is now available to be licensed at IPI Singapore - a global tech-transfer platform.

FOR all the technological progress the world has ushered in, access to clean drinking water remains a problem that still affects developing nations.


The Sri Lanka Institute of Nanotechnology (Slintec), in collaboration with Monash University Malaysia and Newcastle University, has developed Poseidon, a portable filtration device that can be fitted to a water bottle. This allows people who are deprived of access to clean water to filter what they drink.
