Affix Labs, out of Helsinki, Finland, has specialised in durable environmentally friendly coatings that can bind to surfaces and textiles to imbue disease-fighting attributes. They do so in one of two ways; Repeltec, an insect repellent that does not kills insects but rather creates an area of effect that disorients them to reduce landings and bites; or Si-Quat and Clean N Coat, that kill viruses, bacteria and fungi on contact. Both of these solutions are durable and long lasting meaning they are not only effective but reduce time spent applying and reapplying.AFFIX Labs

Yet many viruses and bacteria, including the SARS-COV-2 virus, can survive for up to 3 days on some surfaces, meaning regularly touched areas in public spaces have the potential to be cross contamination hotspots.
