Frequently Asked Questions
Will Aegis® Adversely Affect Skin or the Environment?
AEGIS® has decades of experience. The antimicrobial is permanently bound to the surfaces it protects, it does not leach from the fabric or treated surface to the skin or into the environment. In fact, AEGIS® is used on baby nappies to prevent rash.
What is the difference between the AEGIS® Microbe Shield products and other antimicrobials?
Conventional products penetrate living cells and kill by way of poisoning the organism or disrupting a vital life process. They are designed to act quickly and dissipate quickly. Most commercial antimicrobials used for treating surfaces do an adequate job of killing bacteria and fungi, although most have a limited range of effectiveness. AEGIS® is not a disinfectant or sanitizer. AEGIS® technology takes a totally unique approach. It delivers a bacteriostatic effect, but, unlike the conventional methods, it also provides long-term control of growth on treated surfaces, often for the life of that surface. The surface itself is modified to make it antimicrobial active.
Do the AEGIS® products give off gases after application?
How is the treatment applied?
The AEGIS products are applied in aqueous solution and can be inserted into almost any wet process during manufacturing at the mill. They can also be applied to finished goods. The antimicrobial is easily integrated into a moist jet, pad, and batch processes. The antimicrobial is cationic so it mixes well with other cationic and nonionic finishes (most softeners) and performs well in the same bath.
For Hard surfaces
AEGIS can be treated on any hard surfaces by either fogging, wipe down, soaking or paint rolling on the target substrate
