What Is AEGIS®?
AEGIS Microbe Shield® is a revolutionary, highly effective quaternary silane based antimicrobial technology that protects surfaces by inhibiting the growth of stain and odor-causing bacteria, mold, mildew, and fungi. This technology is a full spectrum liquid antimicrobial suitable for use in a wide range of surfaces and environments. AEGIS® technology has a unique mode of action and is easy to apply on surfaces by either spray or the “wet and wipe” method.
AEGIS® surface protection and is an aftermarket alternative to permanent antimicrobial built-in protection, which is incorporated into products during manufacturing and becomes an intrinsic part of the product. When topically applied, AEGIS® bonds to the surface and provides excellent long-lasting antimicrobial activity.
Backed by more than 40 years of testing, AEGIS® technology has a history of safe use. It is a durable and effective way to control a wide range of microbes, including bacteria, fungi, algae, mold, and mildew on surfaces found in healthcare, educational and public transportation settings.
On an unprotected surface, bacteria can double in number every 20 minutes. AEGIS® surface protection provides a highly desired residual effect that inhibits the growth of microbes that cause odors and staining. AEGIS® is an antimicrobial surface protectant that compliments normal cleaning practices and provides an additional level of cleanliness protection.
AEGIS® Combined With Normal Cleaning Approaches
Common cleaning practices can be broken down into a couple of steps; the first step would be to clean the surface of any debris, next disinfect using a properly labelled and approved solution that specifically targets your sanitization needs (the limited effectiveness of this step varies but it is not residual). Typically, this is where the cleaning process ends.
AEGIS® offers a completely different third and final step to your cleaning programs; applied residual bacteriostatic and fungistatic surface protection against damaging microbes that can cause odors, staining, and premature product deterioration.
AEGIS® Aftermarket Spray is effective against bacteria, which causes odor, staining and discoloration, fungi (mold and mildew) and algae as a static agent. AEGIS® Antimicrobial can be used as a final bacteriostatic finish on a wide range of surfaces and finished goods to impart long-lasting bacteriostatic or fungistatic activity.
