About the Mould2Protection Project
To help combat Covid-19, CeNTI is developing a reusable and innovative personal protection visor, with antiviral and anti-fog properties.
In addition to having a new design, the visor will be easier to put on than traditional solutions, ensuring its user greater comfort and safety.
Its production will be done through an injection moulding process to produce the fixing ring and the visor that will end up as a complete solution. Additional protection will be provided by anti-viral and anti-fog coatings, which will ensure a greater degree of protection for the user.
Reuse will also be one of its main advantages, contributing to sustainability and environmental protection.
The project is led by the Nanotechnology Centre with the support of the Centro Clínico Académico de Braga (Portugal) and Moldit, a company specialized in the production of moulds and plastic components.
Designated Mould2Protection, it is financed by national funds through FCT - Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia, within the scope of the Special Support RESEARCH4COVID-19.
