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...
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...
Development of polycarbonate based zeolite 4A filled mixed matrix gas separation membranes
SEN, Deger; Kalıpçılar, Halil; Yılmaz, Levent (2007-10-15)
The incorporation of fillers, blending with multifunctional low molecular-weight additives and their combination are investigated as alternatives for modifying the permselective properties of polymeric gas separation membranes. For this purpose, pure polycarbonate (PC), PC/p-nitroaniline (pNA), PC/zeolite 4A and PC/pNA/zeolite 4A mixed matrix membranes were prepared by solvent-evaporation method using dichloromethane as solvent. Zeolite 4A was the filler and pNA was the low molecular-weight additive with mu...
Development of a paper-type tyrosinase biosensor for detection of phenolic compounds

A low-cost, portable, and disposable paper-type tyrosinase biosensor was developed for determination of phenolic compounds, using a paper-strip absorption method. Tyrosinase and a chromophore (3-methyl-2-benzothiazolinone hydrazone) were immobilized on paper strips to manufacture the biosensor, which was tested on a nontoxic substrate (l-dopamine). The biosensor was responsive to phenolic compounds such as 4-chlorophenol, catechol, m-cresol, and p-cresol. The sensor showed stability for 70days. The develope...
