How does BioProtect Antimicrobial Surface Protectant Work?

As you can imagine, explaining the science behind such a ground breaking product can be difficult. A great way to get you familiar with the science is to watch this video produced by the makers of Bio-Protect.



The Technology Behind Bio-Protect Antimicrobial Surface Protectant

When applied to a surface or incorporated into a material, Bio-Protect creates a Micro-biostatic Antimicrobial Coating on the surface that inhibits odor causing bacteria, mold and mildew.

The Micro-biostatic Antimicrobial Coating forms a protective surface protectant by forming a nano bed of spikes that disrupts the microorganism's membrane resulting in the loss of energy in the microbe and its demise.  This new technology provides a perfect approach to inhibiting microorganisms without the use of unsafe heavy metals or poisons.  This mode of action is entirely unique to other antimicrobials.

The molecule is made up of several sections.  One end of the molecule forms a strong bond to the surface it is applied on or into.  The surface can be either porous and non-porous.  The other end of the molecule forms a microscopic bed of nails that stand straight up from the surface.  This nano bed of nails disrupts the microbe's membrane resulting in its demise.  All of this takes place without the use of heavy metals or poisons.


Because Microbiostatic Antimicrobial Coating’s methodology mechanically disrupts the membrane of the microbe, no microbial resistance "superbugs" are ever created from the treatment.
