Anker, Devan & Shark Solutions develop world’s first flame retardant aviation carpet with recycled PVB based binder

© courtesy of Anker Anker, Devan and Shark Solutions teamed up to create the world’s first flame retardant aviation carpet using a recycled binder. Inspired by the knowledge and the needs of the aviation market, Anker motivated to achieve this new goal together. The PVB binder reuses laminated glass, from windshields and architectural/building glass, that otherwise would go to landfill.

Tests confirm new long-lasting surface coating for public spaces proven to kill COVID-19

A new durable anti-viral surface treatment from AFFIX labs has been scientifically proven to last for months on surfaces such as restaurant tables, school furniture and other public spaces while effectively killing the COVID-19 pathogen upon contact. Si-Quat by AFFIX Labs can be implemented onto any surface.
