Our Work

Surface Shield is a new, groundbreaking antimicrobial technology that permanently bonds to any surface, forming a non-toxic shield that kills and prevents the growth of bacteria, mold, mildew, algae, and yeast. Unlike most antimicrobial products, Surface Shield continues to protect up to 90 days after application. It is safe, non toxic, non-leaching, and harmless to all human and animal contact.


Surface Shield was used last season to fight illness in our locker room. The product provided a layer of protection we could not find elsewhere, and we were one team in the NHL that did not have any players contract the mumps! Piet VanZandt, Lead Trainer, Detroit Red Wings
HA complete disinfection of all surfaces was completed throughout our school after a case of MRSA was reported. Surface Shield was applied without interrupting our school activities. It was also applied to all wrestling mats and weight room to protect against transferrable skin infections such as ringworm and impetigo. Billy Hastings, Facility Director, Haslett Public Schools
After years of trying to combat ringworm and other skin infections associated with wrestling programs, this product seemed worth a shot. In 2012, we had eight reported cases of ringworm. This year, we had zero! Michigan-area Public School
Children’s Healing Center is a facility where children who are undergoing medical treatment can come together to play in a clean, germ-free environment. Surface Shield adds an extra layer of protection to this place to help protect against communicable infections for children with compromised immune systems.Deb Winn. Facility Director, Children’s Healing Center
CATA (Capital Area Transportation Authority) treated all busses with Surface Shield in 2012. We have continued to treat our busses over the past three years for the protection of our staff, our customers, and our riders.Sandy Draggoo, CEO, CATA
Our school applied Surface Shield to our wrestling mats, locker room, benches, and weight room. The wrestling program has historically experienced many cases of skin infections, including ringworm and impetigo. I’d encourage all wrestling programs to incorporate this into their preventative program.Michigan-area Public School

    How it Works

    Surface Shield protects surfaces in schools, daycare centers, businesses, and healthcare facilities. Learn how it works and why below.

    How it Works

    Surface Shield is a water-based solution that chemically bonds to treated surfaces or textiles. The long molecular chain with lipid fats acts like a sword and forms a microscopic ‘bed of nails’ on the surface. Positively charged nitrogen attracts the microbes to the surface. The tiny swords pierce the cell membrane of a microbe upon contact. The membrane is destroyed by electrically pulling ions out and denaturing proteins. The swords are not damaged and continue to shield the surface from germs, attracting, piercing, and killing future microorganisms.

    Why it Works

    Surface Shield is a groundbreaking antimicrobial technology that permanently bonds to a surface, forming a non-toxic shield that kills germs. The solution creates a “bed of nails” to inhibit the growth of bacteria, viruses, mold, and other microorganisms for up to 90 days. Microbes that land on this bed of nails are impaled, rupturing the cell wall and causing the demise of the microbe. No poisons or toxic chemicals are used that can cause mutation or adaptive changes in the microbes. The end result is a reduced risk of cross contamination and microbial growth.

    FAQs

    How does it work?

    Surface Shield is a unique positively charged polymer network that chemically bonds to treated surfaces. In addition to the electrical-charged surface, the product produces an enormous amount of quaternary amine swords that puncture bacterial cell membranes to eliminate any possibility of continued bacterial growth. The cured surface is safe, non toxic, non-leaching, and harmless to all human and animal contact.

    Does this product omit any odors or sensitivity to touch?

    No, it’s transparent, odor free, and dries to the touch.

    Why is it different from ordinary antimicrobials?

    Conventional antimicrobials work until they are dry to the touch or come in contact with humans. Surface Shield (once dried) continues to effectively work through its electrical and sword process in excess of 90 days regardless of human touch and contact.

    Is the electrical process harmful to humans, pets, or electronic devices (computers, phones, etc.)?

    Absolutely not, its electrical current performs at a level that is undisruptive to humans or electrical devices and is totally safe.

    Is there any risk of superbugs being created from this product?

    No, its process works mechanically and not through chemistry, unlike many chemically-based products that create superbugs.

    How do I know the product is safe and performs as you described?

    The active ingredients in Surface Shield have been reviewed, approved, and are registered with the Federal EPA under the name BioShield to perform as we have described.

    Where can Surface Shield be applied?

    Surface Shield can be applied to any surface with the exception of food preparation areas.

    How do we apply it?

    The Surface Shield team thoroughly cleans a surface with a commercial grade disinfectant and rinses it with vinegar before applying the product with an approved hydrostatic sprayer that evenly coats the surface.

    How should it be maintained?

    Regular cleaning will keep the surface clean and free of debris to allow the Surface Shield to perform at peak performance.

    Will general cleaners, bleach, or harsh chemicals remove the Surface Shield?

    No, unless a cleaning solutions has a PH level higher than 10 or there is excessive friction or buffing on a particular surface. These cause the bonding agents to break down much more quickly, so Surface Shield may not last a full 90 days.  

    Will the surface it’s applied to show streaks, build-up, or residue?

    No, when properly applied the cured product will remain transparent and will not layer.

    How long does it take to dry?

    Although dry to the touch after 5-10 minutes, for maximum effectiveness there should be no contact with the surface for a minimum of 2 hours.

    When do I need to reapply?

    Surfaces are tested every 30-45 days and reapplication is done after 90 days of normal traffic and usage.
