An Anti-Microbial Monomer/Polymer Offering Cleaner, Faster, Safer, More Comprehensive Anti-Microbial Protection Not a serious toxin and danger like Triclosan Cheaper, faster-acting than silver/copper-based compounds Non-leaching; stays within the material Extends functional life of product treated Produces self sanitizing materials Can be applied as spray, in solution, or as powder
Benefits Non- leaching, permanent antimicrobial surface Biocide has been proven to be nontoxic, to contain no carcinogens, teratogens, mutagens or reproductive toxins Active kills instantly by disrupting the cell membrane, eliminating any possibility of mutation, adaptation or resistance Broad kill range Environmentally friendly-EPA and FDA approved The technology can be used on wide range of materials. Provides both collective and individual bio-defense protection. Added cost is modest compared to benefit. Approximately 2-5 cents per square foot of coating or 5 to 50 cents per pound of plastic or resin.
Typical Applications Individual and collective protection –Clothing, Uniforms, and other Wearable Fabrics –Carbon filters –Tent Webbing and canvas materials –Painted Surfaces –Laminate and counter tops in field operations Contamination avoidance –Bulk polymer Resins/ Plastics –Resin Concentrates –Sanitation and Health Safety Equipment Medical treatment –Medical Devices –Surgical drapes and wound dressings Nano coatings –Interior surfaces/ walls floors –HVAC ducts –Filters
Action: The Poly-Quat Antimicrobial Is bound to the product controlling Microbes on contact Is substantive to the product substrate Is not consumed when challenged by microbes Mechanically destroys the cell Will not cause microbial adaptation Functions equally in a nano coating or bulk substrate treatment process Can be added into manufacturing process or applied later Can be combined with other surface protectants (e.g., water repellant, anti-static)
The Antimicrobial Agent Why did we choose this antimicrobial? 3 (trimethoxysilyl)propyl–dimethyloctadecyl ammonium chloride Unique in the scope of its kill range/broad kill Bacteria (gram positive) Staphylococcus Aureus Bacteria (gram negative) Salmonella Typhosa Yeast Algae Fungi EPA Registered Chemically active
