Launch of NSG Purity™, Glass Coated with Unique Sol-gel Technology

, NSG Group

The NSG Group is pleased to announce the launch of its newly developed antibacterial and antiviral coated glass in response to growing interest in antiviral materials against the backdrop of the global pandemic.

The new antibacterial and antiviral coated glass is based on the Group’s unique sol-gel technology (*1) and has been named NSG Purity™ (*2). Further, NSG Purity™ was certified by the Society of International sustaining growth for Antimicrobial Articles (SIAA) in Japan (*3) in June 2021, in both of the antibacterial and antiviral categories, which can provide users with more assurance and recognition of its excellent performance. Following these developments, a commercial production line is planned to start operation in August 2021. Going forward, the Group intends to provide coating for various third-party glass, as well as supplying NSG Purity™.

In addition to its antibacterial and antiviral performance, effective both in light and in dark, NSG Purity™ demonstrates high durability and transparency. These advantages can make NSG Purity™ a desirable glass option for the places that people touch and need to be hygienic. The potential applications may include not only cover glass for smart phones and tablets but also a wide range of equipment such as touch screens of cash registers, ATMs, medical equipment, elevators and appliances used in the public places and at home.

Aiming to be a global glass supplier contributing to the world with high value-added glass products and services as defined in the Medium Term Vision, the NSG Group has identified "Safety & Comfort" as one of the three areas it intends to contribute to. The NSG Group will continue to develop and supply high quality antibacterial and antiviral products, as a way to achieve the Vision.
