The active ingredient in in our patented bonding solution forms a protective coating that can molecularly bond with products upon application. Bacteria are attracted to the coating’s positive charge, and upon coming into contact with the treated surface, they quickly die. When applied to surfaces, it forms a colorless, odorless, positively charged polymer that attracts, then electrocutes and ruptures, a microbe’s negatively charged cell membrane. We inhibit the growth of microbes on surfaces by utilizing a charge disruption mode of action. Our product is a cationic antimicrobial that’s attracted to the microbe’s cell wall and neutralizes the cell wall’s natural protection by interacting with cellular proteins needed to maintain cell wall integrity. Its charge- disruption mode of action leads to the eventual breakdown of the microbial cell (also known as lysis), eliminating odor, stains and deterioration.
Unlike many other chemical disinfectants that control microbes which can require constant re-application or have unwanted side effects, including damage or discoloration on product surfaces, toxicity to living organisms or environmental damage, Our patented technology has a history of safe use and durable, ensuring long-lasting antimicrobial efficacy.
By creating an inhospitable environment for microorganisms like viruses, bacteria, mold and mildew, antimicrobials protect everyday products from staining, bad odors, and premature degradation. Typical material applications include plastics, coatings and textiles to name but a few. Our antimicrobial technologies provide continuous 24/7 product protection that does not wear off and remains effective, even if a treated product is nicked, scratched, or abraded.
Antibacterial vs. Antimicrobial: What’s the Difference?
The primary difference between antibacterial vs. antimicrobial substances is the types of microorganisms they act upon.
- Antibacterial Technologies: Antibacterial technologies are effective against a broad spectrum of harmful bacteria including E. coli and MRSA. They will typically incorporate silver active ingredients, allowing for successful application in a wide variety of product types.
- Antimicrobial Technologies: Antimicrobial technologies minimise the presence of viruses, bacteria, mold, and fungi. In contrast to antibacterial agents, antimicrobial substances offer a greater level of product protection. The broad spectrum performance of antimicrobial substances makes them perfect for use in hygiene critical environments such as schools, hospitals, and commercial kitchens.
