Chitosan To The Rescue With Persistent, Ongoing Antimicrobial Activity.
Don't Just Destroy Pathogens On Contact.
Protect Your Surfaces With “Chemical Free “Steam + Shield & Prevent Recontamination.
Steam + Shield™ is a patented process which combines superheated, dry vapor steam with our Chitosan
Antimicrobial, providing one-step disinfection and long-lasting protection of treated surfaces. Best of all, it is
all-natural, non-toxic and amazingly sustainable. Steam + Shield™ has been tested and proven to inhibit
growth of a wide variety of pathogens at 99.99% efficacy for extended periods.
E. Coli and Staphylococcus aureus Laboratory test results indicate that dry vapor steam containing ChitosaAntimicrobial sterilizes and disinfects the surface of the treated glass for 2, 6 and 24-hours after re-inoculat
Tests on glass and cotton continued to deliver E. Coli and S. aureus ATCC 6538 reduction up to 35 days.
Our Chitosan Antimicrobial is EPA registered to inhibit the growth of Bacteria, Mold, Mildew and Fungi. EPA
Registration #81446-2. It can be used as a cleaner, laundered into fabrics or sprayed onto hard and soft
surfaces for the stated purpose.
Unlike Hand Sanitizers and Chemical Disinfectants That Just Kill On Contact,
Chitosan Antimicrobial Continues To Inhibit Bacterial Growth.
Benign effect on lung tissue. High PEL ( quaternary ammonium, hydrogen peroxide, chlorine dioxide) are all
lung hazards in a fog, mist or spray
• Incredibly sustainable
• Kills odor-causing bacteria. All organisms were
tested on both porous and non-porous substrates
• Destroys the microbe, eliminating the risk of
genetic mutation creating "super bugs”. Chitosan technology for antimicrobial properties in fabric originated within the NASA Space Program. Our research has led us to patented process technology that is comprehensive, non-allergenic and non-toxic. The active, antimicrobial agent, Chitosan, has been used for more than 100 years and widely employed in the food- supplement business and in wound care. Chitosan is amazingly sustainable as it is a polysaccharide, the second most prevalent polymer on earth.
Chitosan also has a broad-spectrum antimicrobial effect, presumably mediated by interaction of the cationic groups on chitosan with negatively charged bacterial surface components inhibiting membrane transfer of nutrients to the cells and/or microbial cell wall destruction resulting in bacterial death.
What Makes Us Different?
Chitosan antimicrobial provides a residual natural antimicrobial film proven effective and containing intrinsic antimicrobial properties. Tests show Chitosan provides persistent, sustained, residual, antimicrobial effect for up to a year, depending on environmental conditions. Testing to date shows 6 log kill (99 .9999% ). *publicly available lab tests support these claims. Persistent or ON-GOING antimicrobial effect. Tested to 3-weeks on S. aureus ATCC 6538 (Staph) and to 4-months & 8-days on S. aureus ATCC 33592 (MRSA). Non-Toxic & All-Natural- It can be sprayed in a mist without Lung Damage (low PEL). No other current item on the EPA N List (registered disinfectants) can claim this.
