As one of the MTUN universities in Malaysia, UTHM constantly keep making efforts in inhibiting the transmission of the recent pandemic which is Covid-19. Institute of Integrated Engineering (12E) that gathers many experts in  science, technology and mechanical have taken proactive steps to produce hand sanitizers.

The ingredients in producing the sanitizers are ethanol, aloe vera and perfume. For a small bottle of 100 ml hand sanitizer, only 60 ml ethanol (95% purity) and 20 ml deionized (Dl water) were used. The composition changes depending on the purity of the ethanol. While aloe vera and perfume were used as moisturizer for hands and produces a pleasant smell for the users.
