Laminate major Greenlam Industries Ltd has announced that its laminates and compacts will now offer surfaces resistant to SARS-CoV-2. According to the company, its products are proven effective against SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes Covid-19, with 99% efficacy within 30 minutes of exposure to the laminate surface and completely eliminates in 45 minutes and beyond, as per test was conducted by the Ministry of Science & technology.
“Greenlam has been producing laminates and compacts with antivirus, antibacterial, and antifungal properties, and with this new achievement, Greenlam will be able to offer laminates and compacts resistant to SARS-CoV-2. This makes Greenlam, the World’s first laminate brand proven effective against SARS-CoV-2,” the company’s MD & CEO Saurabh Mittal said in a press release.
In another development, the company has pledged to contribute Re 1 from each of its laminate sales in the country to help the blind and visually impaired community reclaim their vision. “We know that Covid-19 has changed our normal way of living. While we are slowly adapting to this new normal of social distancing, contactless services and business to simply covering common touch surfaces with plastic sheets for easy disinfection. For the blind community, however, it is an unimaginable change as touch-and-feel was an integral part of their communication. This festive season Greenlam has taken another initiative for these people among us. We hope our small step can make some difference in their lives,” Mittal added.
