Study on Improving Stainless Steel Antibacterial Capability
A new method was studied for improving stainless steel antibacterial capability. The Na2FeO4 coating was prepared on steel surface throughout NaOH treatment, then steel samples were immersed into the solution coantaining Ag+, Zn2+ and TiO2. The antibacterial-ions were fixated firmly on the stainless steel with chemical bond. Scanning electronic microscopy(SEM), X-ray(XRD) and atomic absoption spectroscopy(AAS) were employed to analyze the materials, and the results showed that the antibacterial membrane included silver citrate and silver peroxide. Quinn test was also carried out, in which Staphylococus and E.coli. the results showed that the steel has a bacteriostasis rate of 99.48% to Staphylococus, and 99.09% to E.coli.
