4-Vinylpyridine in Industrial Cleaning

4-Vinylpyridine (4VP) can be used to bind antimicrobial molecules to hard surfaces, giving the surface long-lasting antimicrobial protection.  

Vinylpyridines provide a unique set of properties to wide range of applications due to good thermal stability, chemical stability, mild basicity, mild pH trigger, and compatibility with most polymerization techniques.

Applications

Surface Treatment Ingredient

4-Vinylpyridine can be used to bind antimicrobial molecules to hard surfaces, giving the surface long-lasting antimicrobial protection. Using an antimicrobial helps inhibits the ability of microorganisms to grow on the surface of a material. Such surfaces are becoming more broadly used in various settings including medical, industrial, and even the home.
