Making Materials Smarter

PolyCAT is an Oxford, UK based company with a process that adds smart functionality to any polymer material. Treatments we offer range from "kill on contact" antiviral properties, to advanced catalytic functions. 

We can treat a huge range of polymer materials such as: -

  • Natural polymers such as Cotton, Wood, and Latex

  • Plastics including PET, HDPE, PP, Nylon, Polyesters

  • Flexible polymers such as PU and Nitrile

  • Durables such as Kevlar, Nomex and PTFE.

Our Applications

ApplicationsPPE.png

Steri-CAT™ PPE

PolyCAT's highly antiviral Steri-CAT™ coating for PPE reduces the risk of cross contamination in working environments. ISO18184:2019 (antiviral) and AATCC100 (antibacterial) certified on multiple materials including non-wovens. Steri-CAT™ coated articles typically deactivate all tested viruses in under 5 mins post-contact, which is an outstanding level of efficacy.

ApplicationsIAQ.png

Air-CAT™ IAQ filters  

Air-CAT™ filters actively scrub viruses and VOCs from airstreams, without the pressure reduction associated with HEPA filters. Easily retrofittable, without needing to change your HVAC plant.

AppplicationsHydro.png

Hydro-CAT™ Water Filters

Hydro-CAT™ catalytic filters actively destroy contaminants in waste water, rather than just adsorbing the problem.

ApplicationsFresh.png

Fresh-CAT™ Fruit Preservation Materials

Reusable Fresh-CAT™ modules for fresh produce preservation during transit. No toxic waste products to deal with, reducing losses and extending shelf life.

ApplicationsSpill.png

Spill-CAT™ Industrial Spill Kits

Spill-CAT™ catalytic adsorbent materials designed for easy management of hazmat spills.

How it works

HowitworksMain.png

Step 1: Molecular ‘anchors’ are implanted into the specific material. This works for any polymer (e.g. cotton, polyester, wood, Teflon etc.)

 

 

Step 2: Active particles are grown on the molecular anchors; Because they all start growing at the same time, the size distribution can be very precise allowing for invisible coatings if required.

 

 

Step 3: Once the particles have grown to the desired size for the specific application, the growth is stopped and the process is complete. Fixatives are applied to ensure the particles stay in place permanently, and have the correct catalytic activity for the application.
