CpK Makes Breakthrough with Auto Parts Proven to Kill COVID
COVID Innovation Happening Now in the Bay of Quinte Region
Belleville’s CpK Interior Products has developed an anti-viral plastic additive for their automotive interior parts which kills the coronavirus within one hour. Research and product development was performed in collaboration with Western University.
CpK is a wholly owned subsidiary of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) Canada. Located in Ontario, CpK manufactures auto parts such as dashboards, consoles, and produces their own plastic resins in their compounding facility in Corbyville, a rural area of Belleville. The new product will make vehicle interiors safer for multi-person use - great news for carpooling and ride sharing!
In the future, germs and viruses will not be able to survive on the plastic surfaces inside vehicles. Imagine all the possibilities for products that use plastic! This anti-viral additive could eventually be used in many other applications.
