Next-gen defense to combat transmission and infection.

Our technology helps filter pathogens to reduce the risk of transmission in indoor spaces, higher risk work environments and with social interactions.

Building Health System Resiliency

We are working with partners globally to bring this much needed, antimicrobial innovation forward to better protect our healthcare workers and the public. We are actively expanding into the indoor air quality market and pursuing further PPE applications, including nitrile gloves, gowns, footwear, coverings, and surgical caps to bring enhanced protection to the global healthcare industry. ZenGUARD™ technology brings pathogen protection to hospitals, homes, and healthcare facilities to mitigate risks during this pandemic, as well as those undiscovered and future pandemic diseases.

Medical 01

Enhanced Bacterial and Viral Filtration Efficiency (BFE/VFE) greater than 99.99%*
— We believe a first for surgical masks.

ZenGUARD™-coated masks removed 98.9% more bacteria and 97.8% more virus compared to a typical ASTM Level 3, 3-ply uncoated, resulting in over 99.99% BFE and VFE ratings.

Proven Filtration

ZenGUARD™ is a hydrophilic, water attracting coating that adsorbs and filters bacteria and virus-laden aerosols, increasing public safety, and reducing the risk of transmission of pathogens.

The same ZenGUARD™ technology that enhances the effectiveness of PPE can be added to air filtration media used in HVAC systems to filter pathogens and improve air quality.

*Testing completed by GAPLAB Environmental Microbiology using a modified ASTM F2101:

S. aureus CFU BFE Challenge Level Total CFU Recovered Averaged from 3 tests
Uncoated 3-ply 6,966,700 38,500
ZenGUARD™-coated 4-ply 6,966,700 410
MS2 Bacteriophage PFU VFE Challenge Level Total PFU Recovered Averaged from 3 tests
Uncoated 3-ply 22,933,000 76,667
ZenGUARD™-coated 4-ply 22,933,000 1,683

Fostering Safer Communities

Zentek is actively exploring opportunities to take its cutting-edge nanotechnology outside the clinical setting to add advanced protection to air filtration systems - making travel, work, and our communities safer.

Medical 06 rev1
We are bringing what we believe is a significant differentiator in the PPE space to those in Canada’s highest risk environments. Looking beyond our borders, the first regulatory approval of our technology for use on surgical masks is also significant as we continue developing our international growth strategy.
