Purpose Describe how SparGuard and Containment Filter Technologies products can add additional protection capability. Determine if there is a good fit between your needs and our offerings, and if we should move forward. Agenda: Introduction Product Overview Proposed solutions / business opportunities Questions Next Steps
Antimicrobial Technology SparGuard protects virtually all solid surfaces and fabrics from a broad array of disease and odor causing micro-organisms, including all forms of MRSA. SparGuard inhibits biological growth on treated surfaces for as long as 90 days. On surfaces with little or no friction the molecule will bind for years.
Safe, effective and easy to use Works on virtually all surfaces and fabrics Can be mixed with other cleaning agents Keeps laundry from spreading microorganisms Neutralizes and prevents offensive odors Stops mold and mildew Cost savings Long-lasting Multiple application methods EPA registered Patented Technology Why Use SparGuard
Infection is the #1 cause of death worldwide and the #3 cause of death in USA. Superbug mutations caused by sterilants, chemicals. 25 years ago, 80% of infection was controlled by antibiotics. Today, less than 50% of infections are deemed controllable. Health problems caused by the growth of bacteria, fungi, algae, mold, and mildew in living and work areas are ever-increasing. Mold is more lethal than asbestos and more prevalent. Superbugs are on the rise
SparGuard - A Micro-biostatic Surface Protectant Microbes land on the surface protectant Microbes’ membranes are ruptured by the surface protectant and die Surface remains poised to kill next microbe Not a leaching poison, does not use depleting heavy metals Continues to protect in-between cleanings Colorless and odorless Water-based, easy to handle and low risk for workers to use How it WorksElectron Microscope View
Spray it on or wash it in. Becomes active within 3 minutes of application and starts to work as soon as micro-organisms come into contact with the treated surface. It then works continuously to maintain a consistently lower bio-burden than would be expected on a surface not protected by SparGuard. Normal cleaning of the treated surfaces is necessary in order for SparGuard’s antimicrobial spikes to continue their effectiveness. Dirt build-up, paint, dead microbes, etc. can cover the treatment, preventing it from killing micro-organisms. SparGuard Usage
An independent, long-term hospital study showed that SparGuard reduced microbe counts in many cases by over 99% on fabrics and other surfaces (Study is available upon request.) SparGuard has been shown to significantly reduce the staph counts and subsequent staph infections on oil rigs. SparGuard treatment increases the longevity of fabrics, as recognized by the EPA, as it “inhibits deterioration caused by bacteria.” SparGuard Laundry Treatment SparGuard and Fabric Softener Combined
Items normally laundered Fabrics that can’t be “tracked” or have high turnover Use every wash -Add 1% of the weight of the fabric being washed. Use in every wash and BioProtect 500® protection increases, as shown in a study (Study is available upon request.) Only $0.02 -$.03 per pound Items not regularly laundered and/or can’t be laundered Curtains, room dividers, and upholstered furniture. Fabrics that can be tracked such as an individual uniforms One Time Usage - Add 5% of the weight of the fabric being washed. It’s 5% active ingredient used one-time gives antimicrobial protection for the useful life of the fabric. Only $0.10 -$0.15 per pound BioProtect 500® Laundry Treatment BioProtect 500® and Fabric Softener Combined
From CBS News – Link available upon request Scientists swabbed 43 hospital curtains twice a week for three weeks. They analyzed 180 samples, and found germs on 119. Twenty-six percent of curtains tested positive for the potentially deadly antibiotic-resistant Staphylococcus aureus bacteria known as MRSA, and 44 percent tested positive for a form of Enterococcus bacteria - some of which were antibiotic resistant. Researchers also placed 13 new curtains in a hospital for the study. Within a week, 12 were contaminated.

Cardinal Health believes at least 18% of hospital- acquired infections are airborne 2009 ASHRAE study clearly identifies a series of pathogens that move through the air and through HVAC systems Adenovirus Influenza virus Rebeola virus Meningococcal Disease Mumps virus Pertussis Parvovirus B19 Respiratory Syncitial Virus Rubella virus Tuberculosis Disease Spreads through the air
New technology – low cost clean air New synthetic filter media with efficiencies to H.E.P.A. 99.97% @.1 micron. Soft flexible pad with a very low static pressure. Easily installed and removed Requires no retrofit to the HVAC main system. Attach via double sided tape over every return vent. Drastically reduces the transmission of the particles from dust to sub-micron sized particles (mold, fungi, viruses and microbes) No capital cost for the system (cost can be transferred directly to patients) Rough cost - between.20 cents to $2.00 dollars per 1000 square feet per day Containment filter’s ability to filter virus size particles from the air
