FAQ

What Exactly is Disinfect & Shield?

Disinfect & Shield is both a process and a product that allows users to apply a safe and fast-acting, FDA registered hand sanitizer, or EPA registration pending disinfectants that destroys viruses, bacteria and other microbes on contact and prevents them from attaching to any surface where it has been applied. It is recommended for all facilities and even for application to health professionals’ personal protective equipment (PPE). For example, when sprayed on a surgical mask, Disinfect & Shield provides improved protection as compared to an untreated mask. Disinfect & Shield is available both in bulk for commercial use and as a hand sanitizer.

What Makes Disinfect & Shield Different from Other Disinfectant Products?

There are significant differences:

  • Most products used in decontamination kill by using chemicals but quickly lose their effectiveness through evaporation and other reasons. Disinfect & Shield destroys on contact, keeps killing indefinitely, and creates a continuous protective layer, preventing dangerous organisms from attaching.
  • Traditional methods of decontamination involve the use of varying types and degrees of toxic chemicals – often alcohols, bleaches and acids that are harmful to humans, animals and plants. Disinfect & Shield is both eco-friendly and completely safe for use around humans, animals, and plants – including crops.
  • Disinfect & Shield includes a suite of products such FDA registered hand sanitizers, and EPA registration pending disinfectants.
How Does Disinfect & Shield Work?

When a surface is coated with Disinfect & Shield, millions of nano “swords” begin forming and bonding with the surface, effectively destroying the cells of the biothreat attempting to attach to the object resulting in a “mechanical kill.” Disinfect & Shield modifies the treated surface, preventing adhesion, disrupting microbial communication, and prohibiting colonization, reproduction and proliferation of the virus or bacteria.
