What is it about?

Using Prof. Tanaka's laboratory at Osaka University successfully achieved a special copper surface patterning on stainless steel, and Mr. Beomdeok Seo as a Ph.D. student in the laboratory could show a strong antibacterial effect. as a surface finishing of stainless steels.

Why is it important?

We believe that the finding would lead to the application of biomaterials since they must have strong anti-biofilm and anti-infectious properties.


Since the surface finishing process uses a unique super spread wetting by Dr. Toshihiro Tanaka and their colleagues, the process is relatively inexpensive and userfriendly. The process can be applied to pipe works, kitchens, bathrooms, etc., and medical fields.
