How Do Antimicrobial Products
Work?

Nano Anti-Bacterial products provide an immediate microbial kill and is non-mutagenic and safe to use, when the microbial products are applied to a surface they create a layer of “swords”.

The positive charge of the “swords” attracts the negatively charged membrane of the microorganisms, when they are in contact withe the “sword” the cells are punctured which will kill the cell. The products work by not entering the cell to destroy from inside the cell but by destroying the cell from the outside meaning that once they touch the surface they are killed immediately.

How Will Antimicrobial Products
Protect Surfaces from Bacteria & Viruses?

The products will prevent body odour bacteria caused from sweat, they also provide permanent fungicidal function, deprives dust mites from food, helps prevent Fungal infection for example athletes foot, prevents mold growth on gloss and porous surfaces, prevents micro-scratches, removes limescale, grease and dust. The products are also free from halogens.

How Long Will Antimicrobial Products
Protect a surface for?

The products can work for up to 1 year, You can check to see if your coating is still working by purchasing a blue tester kit, please note the kit does not show the coating used on glass or high shine surfaces such as stainless steel. A drop of the blue tester is placed on the coated surface,using a cloth you wipe the tester drop to see what colour is left on the surface. Depending on the brightness of the blue tester will determine how much treatment is left on the surface.

What Surfaces Can Antimicrobial Products Be Used On?

The products create an invisible hygiene coating so can be used on most items the products are split into two different categories Glossy or Porous please see below
