ZenGUARD™ for HVAC

HVAC Testing & Development

Simple, upgraded defense on existing technology for improved indoor air quality!

Innovative public health protection is more important than ever. The Zentek team is currently exploring additional uses for ZenGUARD™ including adding advanced protection to air filtration (HVAC) systems to support safe travel, work environments, and social gatherings.

We are currently in testing under an Innovation Solutions Canada (ISC) testing stream contract. The evaluation is being conducted through the Aerospace Research Centre, a department of the National Research Council of Canada.

Phase 1 targets were met including sufficient reduction in live airborne test organisms, no significant shedding of the ZenGUARD™ coating, and air flow rates were not impacted by the coating. ZenGUARD™-coated HVAC filters demonstrated a maximum improvement of 99%, compared to equivalent MERV-rated uncoated filters using a bacteriophage (a SARS-COV-2 surrogate). Phase 1 testing was conducted by CremCo Laboratories with assistance from the Aerospace Research Centre, a department of the National Research Council of Canada.
