A microbe’s only protection from the outside world, the cell wall, is about 20 nanometers thick. 1/1000th the thickness of a plastic grocery bag, thin and vulnerable. Yet most antimicrobial technologies are designed to pass right through the cell wall and attempt to poison the microbe from the inside, interfering with its metabolism and altering its DNA. This leads to mutations and resistant-adaptive superbugs! What a bad idea! Silver and Triclosan, both chemicals that operate in this manner, are technologies that have increasing health and safety concerns globally, both for toxicity and mutation and adaptation of super-bugs
BIOSAFE is not metabolized by cells, it creates a network of charged particles that pop cells like a balloon, on contact. The technology takes advantage of the weakness of the cell wall and ruptures it with this physical/electrical force. BIOSAFE’s invisible coating adheres to hard surfaces and fabrics, and is ready to destroy any microbes that come in contact with it. What’s more, it provides durable, long lasting protection for 30 days. This physical rupturing of the cell wall is the best way to kill a microbe. It does not lead to resistant superbugs, and the active is not leached into the environment or person, as occurs with silver and triclosan technologies.
Antimicrobials are not all created equal. BIOSAFE is the only antimicrobial polymer in its class that provides unmatched safety and performance.
BIOSAFE's powder and water based solutions are registered with EPA’s Antimicrobials division as EPA Reg. No. 83019-1,2,3
