In Laboratorios Argenol, a spirit of tradition, built up over 60 years of experience, coexists with a spirit of innovation, fomented by a research team that are working day by day to improve, study and develop new products, always responding to the current needs of the market.
Since 1939, we have been manufacturing our Silver Colloids: Collargol, Proteinate, Vitellinate, Targesine and Targesine with borax, for traditional applications in the pharmaceutical industry. Nowadays, after nearly 70 years of production, the consumptionof these products is increasing due to the growing resistance of disease-causing organisms to pharmaceutical antibiotics.
In recent years, thanks to the antibacterial properties of Silver, many new applications for it are being found in very diverse fields. For this reason, our research team is working on the development of new applications and products.
Some examples of the lines that are the object of our research efforts are:
- Microbiological water purification
- Additive used in animal food as an alternative to antibiotics
- Antimicrobial Paper and Cellulose.
- Antimicrobial Paints
- Antimicrobial Plastics and Textiles
- Antimicrobial Cosmetics
- Antimicrobial Ceramics
