– It prevents viruses as an effective antiseptic and epidemics prevention solution

HWASEONG, South Korea–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#AntisepticPreventionSolutionMAK developed Oracle Water System that can produce ‘Oracle Water’, an epidemics prevention solution which is highly effective for COVID-19.

Oracle Water can be used in areas with heavy traffic of people, such as streets, parks, and urban lakes and densely populated commercial facilities like airports, factories, and shopping centers, as well as living places including schools, hospitals, and apartments.

Disinfection and cleaning capabilities of ‘Oracle Water’ were demonstrated as it was used as an epidemics prevention solution in Daegu where COVID-19 was widely spread. On March 7, ‘Oracle Water’ was begun to be used as sterilizing water in Daegu and the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases in the city decreased from 390 on March 7 to 297 on March 8, 190 on March 9 and to 32 on March 17, showing a reduction by 91.7%.

Developed by MAK leveraging 11 related patents to cope with variants of harmful viruses, ‘Oracle Water’ provides outstanding sterilizing effects as ozone is dissolved in nano-micro bubble in water with the highest dissolution rate of 70% in the world. Unlike chemical disinfectants, it is eco-friendly and can be applied to wide areas as ozone is decomposed into oxygen molecules in water.

“The most important step to stop spreading Coronavirus is the prevention of epidemics,” said Byung Joon Chun, President of MAK. “As it provides 6~7 times* stronger sterilizing power compared to other disinfectants, Oracle Water can rapidly prevent epidemics. And sterilization effect of Oracle Water was already recognized by removing anthrax bacteria and H1N1 viruses.”

Having concluded a contract with GW in China, a disinfection service company designated by Hangzhou city government, to supply 18 units of Oracle Water System, MAK is scheduled to ship the systems in April.

“We are receiving inquiries from countries impacted by COVID-19 and concentrating efforts on manufacturing Oracle Water Systems, day and night, to help countries getting over COVID-19 across the world,” added Chun.

MAK is a leading company that specializes in applying plasma technology. After having strived to develop plasma technologies since its establishment in 2004, the company leveraged these technologies for expanding businesses into diverse areas including ashing of semiconductor, bonding of LCD panels for displays and TVs, air cleaning at medical facilities, treatment and regeneration of skin, anti-aging and tooth whitening. The company solidified the foundation for entering markets in Japan by acquiring patent rights in the country for the apparatus for cleaning a fingerprint on the glass, plasma torch, and atmospheric plasma generator. It also boasts cutting-edge technology of fully providing plasma technologies to the major mobile phone manufacturers for processing curved glasses used in flexible displays of such phones.

Having successfully developed USC technology for the third time in the world, the company is supplying it to BOE, Tianma, Jintuo, and Etmade in China and HIRATA in Japan. Possessing proprietary patent rights for vacuum plasma equipment for MLCC, the company is exclusively supplying the equipment to Samsung Electro-Mechanics, and working with multiple Korean companies, including Samsung Electronics and LG Display. MAK owns various product lines, including vacuum Descum equipment for wafer and plasma for processing curved touch screen panel (TSP) used for vehicles. The company is funneling research resources into nano textile equipment targeting the nano textile market and environment protection equipment to explore the wastewater treatment market.
