(RTTNews) - Shares of Sintx Technologies Inc. (SINT) are currently up 25% on Tuesday morning after the company announced a deal with O2TODAY to develop antimicrobial face masks.
SINT is currently trading at $2.6895, up $0.5595 or 26.2676%, on the Nasdaq.
O2TODAY, a company that develops and commercializes face masks for medical and non-medical applications, has inked a joint development agreement with SINTX Technologies to develop a safe and effective consumer facemask with broad-spectrum antibacterial and antiviral activity.
The facemask will incorporate SINTX's unique silicon nitride powder into the mask filter and fabric.
The companies claim that the successful development of such a product may help prevent the spread of respiratory diseases by catching and inactivating SARS-CoV-2 and other viruses and bacteria in the mask itself before they can enter into the human body.
