What is the difference between AEGIS surface protection and AEGIS built-in protection?
Aftermarket Antimicrobial Surface Protection
AEGIS® antimicrobial surface protection can be topically applied by Jan San, Restoration and Remediation, and other industry professionals to create a residual antimicrobial efficacy on surfaces that lasts up to 3 months. The technology has been used globally in commercial, institutional, and healthcare environments to create an added level of cleanliness on hard and soft surfaces.
AEGIS® is effective against a broad spectrum of microbes that can cause odors, stains and premature product deterioration.
Built-in Antimicrobial Product Protection
Built-in antimicrobial technology becomes part of the entire structure of ﬁnished products during the manufacturing process. Materials such as textiles and hard surface products can all be manufactured with the addition of antimicrobial technology.
With our various technology offerings, AEGIS® can provide solutions for any substrate in any application. Finished products with built-in antimicrobial technology can continuously inhibit and reduce the growth of stain and odor-causing bacteria, mold and mildew for the entire lifetime of the finished product itself. The lifetime for finished products can vary from years to decades.
Are AEGIS® Technologies Registered Pesticides?
Yes, both AEGIS® durable surface protection and AEGIS® built-in antimicrobial technologies are classified as pesticides or biocides and are regulated by agencies such as the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in the United States, and the Biocidal Products Regulation (BPR) in Europe.
These products fall under the FIFRA “treated article exemption”, which qualifies treated articles, surfaces, and substances that make claims to protect products, not people.
