Parx Plastics teamed up with Aviplast WFC/Deltawood, a developer of semi-permanent emergency hospital care units made out of wood fiber composite (WFC). This WFC material consists of 75% wood fibers from recycled waste or rest wood in combination of 25% plastic (PP) resin. Parx Plastics successfully applied it’s patented antimicrobial technology to this material and these emergency hospital care units can now have an antibacterial property of up to 99% within 24 hours, measured according to ISO22196.
Parx Plastics winner World Technology Award
At the TIME Conference Center in New York, Parx Plastics wins the World Technology Award for Materials. The Parx technology was identified as an innovation with the likely long-term significance.
Once a year The WorldTechnology Network brings together many of the world’s most innovative individuals and organizations in science, technology, and related fields to present, discuss and celebrate innovations and accomplishments. In this years edition Parx Plastics was awarded for its inventions creating a biocompatible antibacterial plastic. The technology developed by Parx Plastics is unique in its kind as it is fully biocompatible, ecofriendly, non-toxic and without substances leaching from the plastic.
The European Commission has announces Parx Plastics as one of Europe’s TOP 3 Startups.
The European Commission’s vice-president Neelie Kroes introduced the Tech All Stars competition by urging the backing of Europe’s young startups “Europe has the talent. It needs founders like you to believe it. It’s you who can come up with the good ideas and shake it all up. Start forging tomorrow’s economy. Create the jobs. Change the world. Because that’s what startups and entrepreneurs do.”
Parx Plastics successfully adds antimicrobial property to BASF Terluran® GP-35 ABS copolymer
Parx Plastics announces on target results with BASF Terluran® GP-35 ABS copolymer. Terluran® is a standard ABS grade with a low viscosity with a very wide range of applications. ISO 22196 testing by a TÜV-certified laboratory show an antimicrobial effect of 98-99% for Escherichia Coli (Gram-) and Staphilococcus Aurus (Gram+) bacteria. Terluran® GP-35 is a so called “world grade” material as it is available throughout the world and now with the aid of the patented technology of Parx Plastics it can incorporate an effective antimicrobial property.
