Hungarian company Graboplast came up with their world-patented product which has special surface treatment that eliminates microorganisms including viruses and bacteria without the use of chemicals. Since COVID-19 does not seem to disappear anytime soon, demand is very high.
According to their website, Grabo Silver Knight eliminates harmful bacteria without the use of chemicals. The disinfecting activity is achieved by a double defence line: the first line is silver ion, a natural antibiotic, and the second line is a light-activated protective layer, which transforms harmful substances into harmless compounds.
Through the flow diffusion of silver ions, microbes, such as bacteria, fungi, and viruses, are inactivated and destroyed. The second line of defence is Titanium dioxide (NanoTiO2), which helps to decompose germs, and it transforms harmful substances into harmless compounds through a chemical oxidation process without being consumed.
Graboplast recommends using the self-disinfecting floors and walls in social institutions like hospitals, schools, and nursing homes.

In 2019, Graboplast made a profit of 18.1 billion forints (50.6 million euros), 90% of which came from exports.
