Microbe Busters offers a “3 Way GamePlan®” to inhibit growth of life-threatening
bacteria, fungi, algae and yeast that may be found on surfaces of your facility, on fabrics, and even on skin.
For surfaces such as walls, floors, ceilings, lockers, tables and medical equipment, this is accomplished
with the use of our patented, transparent, anti-microbial coating, which covalently bonds to the surface and
uses a mechanical action to reduce microbial contamination. It is not consumed and does not leach poisons
or heavy metals into the environment. Therefore, it does not create resistant strains and it remains effective
for a long time. It actively attracts and destroys airborne organisms to create a healthier environment.
The active ingredient was developed by Dow Corning in the 1970’s. It forms a colorless, odorless, positively charged polymer, which chemically bonds to the
treated surface, forming a self-sanitizing barrier. Each molecule is made of a long chain of atoms that form a microscopic quaternary amine
sword with a positively charged nitrogen atom at its base. The illustrations above show what happens when
negatively charged airborne microbes are irresistibly drawn to the sword. They are punctured on contact.
The positively charged nitrogen atom gives off a small electrical discharge, effectively electrocuting the
microbes as well.
The technology is also available in a formulation that can be applied onto most fabrics during a laundry
cycle. Its technology continuously reduces contamination of highly pathogenic organisms on
towels, linens, drapes, patient and staff uniforms. Its self-sanitizing barrier lasts for up to 30 washes with only one application.
Microbe Busters' non-alcohol based, long lasting hand lotion and sanitizer, HandSecure®, can retain its efficacy to reduce contamination up
to eight hours. Unlike the competition, HandSecure® is made of safe ingredients that are hypo-allergenic and
moisturize the skin.
