A new mold-killing paint can be used to kill mold, a new research paper claims.
Researchers say it is the first time mold killing paint has been demonstrated using a new type of chemistry.
Mould killing paint is used in applications like nail polish remover and spray paint, which can damage the paintwork, according to the paper, published on Tuesday in the journal ACS Chemical Neuroscience.
Mold can cause serious health problems, including cancer, which is linked to DNA damage, according the paper.
Molds also can cause problems for people’s skin and eyes.
Moles are a type of bacteria that are found in the soil, and they can cause skin irritation and itchiness.
The paper claims the mold-kill paint is an alternative to traditional paint removers, which are usually used to destroy the bacteria that cause the mold, said the paper’s lead author, Jessica Fritsch, a chemical engineering graduate student at Cornell University.
Fritsch and her colleagues used a new chemical-based paint-killing agent, which they called “Molten.”
They tested the product against other types of paint remover, including water-based removers and spray-on removers.
The new paint-kill formulation is effective against many types of mold, including white mold, and is effective at killing both normal and abnormal mold growth, the authors wrote.
“We are confident that Molten is an effective and safe mold killer for use in spray paint applications,” Fritsche said in a statement.
“It’s a novel product and the ability to deliver this to the surface has potential to change the face of spray paint and nail polish production.”
Molting a mold can be done using an ultraviolet light, a process called UV-emitting, or a gas, like argon or hydrogen sulfide, according The Chemical Record, a website dedicated to science news.
Mold kills are often done in an airtight container, but a method to kill the bacteria in a bottle is also a possibility.
One of the first studies to use ultraviolet light to kill fungi was in the 1980s, but the research didn’t take into account the possibility of the spray being contaminated, according Toonika.
A new technique, known as gas-activated gas, is also being explored, but no studies have been done to test it.
It’s unclear how effective the new formulation would be against mold, or whether it would also be effective against normal mold growth.
