Disinfect & Shield is fast-acting nanotechnology that is antimicrobial and anti-viral which destroys viruses and bacteria and prevents them from attaching to surfaces. The active ingredient is a colorless, odorless, positively charged polymer that bonds to the treated surface creating a layer of electrically charged “swords”. They protect the surface from biofilm growth by puncturing the cell membrane.
For years, science has combated bio-hazards with “chemical kills” – using highly toxic chemicals to kill a dangerous biological threat. These chemicals often evaporate within minutes or hours. Advancements in the field of nanotechnology have led to the creation of a “mechanical kill” mechanism to replace toxic chemicals, whereby coating an object will kill the cells of the biothreat trying to attach to the object. The coating is approximately four nanometers in size, as opposed to most microbial matter, which is 90-100 nanometers in size, making coated surfaces impervious to the bio-hazard. The material has been developed in such a way, that it creates a micro-crystalline structure.
