Coatings and Enamels

It is confirmed that glass enamel coatings are promising for antibacterial protection of steel panels. A methodological approach is developed for obtaining antibacterial composite glass coatings. A glass matrix with a programmed structure, bactericide nanopowders of zinc phosphate, and composite glass coatings based on them have been obtained on the basis of the system R2O – RO – TiO2 – P2O5 – SiO2. The composition of a coating with the maximum antibacterial effect with respect to E. Coli bacteria is determined.
