So far, there are two types of antibacterial used in plastics among the market, organic antimicrobial and Sliver-nanoparticles antimicrobial, but both of them have disadvantages in certain respects. The organic antimicrobial has relative poor security property and low thermotolerance quality, the abroad applications are limited. Currently the inorganic antibacterials are widely used, which has the antibacterial effect when coating on the material surface. However, in this way the effect of antimicrobial would be extinct by peeling coating, in addition, the antibacterial are consistently on the material surface is easy to produce hazardous effects by long term uses.
