Aegis Microbe Shield ®
Aegis Microbe Shield is Bio-Shield that controls and prevents the growth of Mold, Algae, Yeast, Viruses and Bacteria
AEGIS has been registered by the EPA in the United States and by regulatory authorities in many countries around the world. It is a patented, innovative product. It has been in use as a surface and fabric protectant for decades. In 2013, Heath Canada approved AEGIS as a surface protectant here in our country. AEGIS represents a new concept in antimicrobial protection.
The Science Behind Our Product
When applied, it polymerizes (bonds) to surfaces resulting in a strong, durable, invisible, effective and extremely safe barrier that kills microorganisms on contact and provides ongoing protection against their growth between cleanings and disinfection. It kills and prevents the growth of an extremely wide range of microorganisms such as bacteria, algae, yeasts, mould, mildew, and viruses for 6 months or longer depending on the surface treated and the wear and tear it is exposed to. What’s different about AEGIS?
How does it work?
When applied, AEGIS represents an invisible, bonded-to-the-surface, physical barrier that kills microbes on contact. The product acts like a bed of nails that pierce the cell wall of a microorganism. This physical rupturing of the microorganism brings about its demise. The molecular spikes consist of a long chain of atoms that carry a strong positive charge which attracts the negatively charged microorganisms. The harmful microorganisms are drawn to, and impaled upon the spike.
While the spikes are large enough to pierce the cell wall of the microorganism, they are too small to impact the skin of humans or animals. They are but 1 – 10 nanometers in height ( about 1/1000th the thickness of a human hair). Bacteria are single celled organisms that are about .2 to 3 microns in height. All other products used to kill microorganisms are termed biocides and kill organisms with toxic chemicals, poisons, or heavy metal. Not good for the organism, but also not good for humans and animals! AEGIS kills microorganisms because of its physical structure – fixing the route of the problem and not the causality!
