Antibacterial electrostatic powder paint coating with intended esthetic criteria was specially formulated for industrial applications using single (Ag+) and binary exchanged (Ag+ and Zn2+) zeolite A, which was prepared from local kaolin resources. Optimization studies on reaction parameters were conducted to obtain the most crystalline zeolite A from kaolin. The Ag+ and Zn2+ exchanged zeolite A samples prepared from kaolin were introduced as filler into the paint matrix during the electrostatic powder coating process. The antibacterial efficacy of the coatings was evaluated against E. coli and S. aureus based on Japanese Industrial Standard JIS Z 2801 method. Color analysis was also performed on these coatings in order to meet the least discoloration criteria, which is relevant to judge the quality of the coatings for industrial use. Single ion-exchanged coatings with Ag+ resulted in discoloring effect, which was diminished by adding Zn2+. The results indicated that the coatings containing both 2 wt% Ag+ and 12 wt% Zn2+ exchanged zeolite A exhibited 99.99% and 99.96% reduction for E. coli and S. aureus, respectively. This was of special interest for zeolite A samples that were prepared from local kaolin resources with more significant discoloration due to using natural kaolin as raw material. In conclusion, a low cost and antibacterial powder paint formulation with desired esthetic criteria using zeolites was achieved for the first time using a combination of Ag+ and Zn2+ ions.


Preparation, characterization, and antibacterial activity of organo-sepiolite/chitosan/silver bionanocomposites
TEKİN, NALAN; Şafaklı, Akif; BUDAK, FATMA; KARA, ALİ (2019-05-01)
Bionanocomposites with different loadings of silver (Ag) were prepared via synthesis of Ag nanoparticles (AgNPs) using the wet chemical reduction method in the lamellar space layer of the organo-sepiolite/chitosan (O-SEP/CS). The prepared O-SEP/CS/Ag bionanocomposites were characterized using various analysis methods for their structure, morphology, and optical properties. The characteristic absorption bands from the UV-visible absorption spectrum confirmed the formation of AgNPs. The antibacterial activiti...
Synthesis and characterization of waterborne and phosphorus containing flame-retardant polyurethane coatings
Çelebi, Funda; Aras, Leyla; Gündüz, Güngör; Department of Chemistry (2002)
In this study, phosphorus containing flame retardant water-dispersed polyurethane paints were produced by incorporating different amounts of phosphorus compound onto the polyurethane main chain. The novel flame retardant compound was synthesized in three steps. In the first step, monobenzalpentaerythritol was produced from benzaldehyde and pentaerythritol. In the second step, phosphorylation of monobenzal pentaerythritol was performed. Final step includes the formation of phosphorus phenyl dihydroxyl from t...

Colloidally stable and highly luminescent near-IR emitting Ag2S quantum dots (NIRQDs) were prepared by a very simple aqueous method using 2-mercaptopropionic acid (2MPA) as a coating. Emission of Ag2S-2MPA NIRQDs can be tuned between 780 and 950 nm. These NIRQDs have photoluminescence quantum yields (PLQY) around 7-39% and exhibit excellent cytocompatibility even at 600 mu g mL(-1) in NIH/3T3 cells. With such improved properties, Ag2S-2MPA NIRQDs have a great potential in practical bio-applications.
Fabrication of microporous ceramics from ceramic powders of quartz-natural zeolite mixtures
San, O; Abali, S; Hoşten, Çetin (Elsevier BV, 2003-01-01)
The possibility of producing ceramic powders suitable for the fabrication of microporous filters was investigated through the thermal treatment of the powder mixtures of a high-purity (99.09% SiO2) quartz and clinoptilolite type of natural zeolite. The quartz and zeolite, mixed in the ratio of 3:1 by weight, was wet ground in a ball mill, the powder was sieved on a 90-mum screen, and the undersize was dried and sintered in the powder form at the temperatures of 1000, 1100 and 1200degreesC for 7 h in an air ...
Improvement of mechanical and flame retardancy properties of biocomposites based on low density polyethylene and polylactic acid
Altun, Yasemin; Bayramlı, Erdal; Doğan, Mehmet Onur; Department of Polymer Science and Technology (2015)
The main objective of this study was to improve the mechanical and flame retardant properties of low density polyethylene (LDPE) and poly (lactic acid) (PLA) based biocomposites. Wood flour (WF) and jute fabric were used as the fillers. In the mechanical property improvement studies with LDPE, the effect of two compatibilizing agents MA (random terpolymer of ethylene, acrylic ester and maleic acid) and GMA (random terpolymer of ethylene, acrylic ester and glycidyl metacrylate) functionalized polymers at dif...
