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