How It Works
UV Micro antimicrobial products control bacteria, fungi and mold, which can cause stains, odors or surface damage, through a physical mode of action that neutralizes microbes which come in contact with treated surfaces. The positive ionic charge in the antimicrobial active attracts microbes to the coating’s surface and physically ruptures their cell membranes. The active ingredient is stabilized with surface tension releasers and other ingredients allowing the product to coat to almost any surface. The unique chemistry offers an industry leading level of performance for long term efficacy and durability.
Where most commercial antimicrobial cleaners and disinfectants are primarily effective only when wet, UV Micro products provide a durable coating for extended periods of time. Because it bonds to a treated surface at the molecular level, UV Micros products are not removed by routine cleaning processes, and traditional cleaning products will not adversely impact its’ performance. Moreover, they have been demonstrated to neutralize or significantly reduce the levels of surface damaging and odor causing microbes on treated surfaces for up to twelve months or longer with a single application.
UV Micro products are a revolutionary surface treatment whose EPA-registered active ingredient is a proprietary silane-based antimicrobial proven to be effective in controlling a wide array of surface damaging bacteria, fungi and mold. When properly applied to any surface, these products bond to that surface at the molecular level for extended periods of time.
Long term applications are applied by our factory certified technicians with our proprietary electrostatic spray technology. Through this process, we assure that all areas are covered with the appropriate amount of product to ensure a long lasting efficacy. Due to the unique chemistry of the product, surface penetration and adherence to a substrate are optimized and have been engineered to withstand greater levels of wear and tear when compared to other products in the market. Regular cleaning of treated surfaces with standard cleaning chemicals will not impact the performance of the application.
Eco-friendly, “Green” and Safe”
UV Micro products are environmentally friendly, non-flammable and has very low toxicity. It has a 0.0 (Least) HMIS hazard rating with regard to health and reactivity dangers.
Our products eliminate the need for potentially harmful chemicals. Unlike chemical disinfectants, and silver- or triclosan-based antimicrobial treatments, Our products proprietary silane treatment is a non-leaching non-sacrificial technology.
In sacrificial technologies, the active chemical agents lose part of their molecular structure in the destruction of targeted organisms, sometimes releasing harmful byproducts into the environment and into our bodies. In the case of non-sacrificial technologies (such as silane), the process does not require the active ingredient to be compromised and leaching does not occur. And because the target organism does not metabolize our products, microbes are unlikely to develop resistance compared to other antimicrobials with different mechanisms of action.
