In our opinion, any facility in which animals (or humans) come together for short periods of time can benefit from Aegis® – aerosolized or shed particles can be rendered ineffective, before other animals (people) are at placed at risk. In livestock setting, those areas that cannot be cleaned to ‘hospital level standards’ on a daily basis can really benefit from this product.
...staff were professional and careful with our guests, equipment, and site. Of particular note was that immediately following the treatment the odour within the grooming area was dramatically reduced. Due to the nature of this service, smell has always been a concern. Additionally, we find cleaning treated surfaces easier. Although Bordetella remains in the community, we are thrilled that since the treatment we have not had a case reported! We are happy with this once per year treatment and would highly recommend it to our colleagues.
We are extremely happy with the results. We can report the mould has not returned, and all odours associated to the mould and mildew have been removed. The complex is back to full use again – something that we were not sure we could accomplish before.
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
How long does the treatment last?
Antimicrobial Protection Company (AMPC®) is proud to utilize (AEM 5700)
known world wide as “Aegis® Microbe Shield®”, a revolutionary innovation changing the battle against the effects of bacteria, mold, mildew, yeasts, and fungi.
Aegis®'s active ingredient is composed of positively - charged molecules shaped like a layer of swords; this coating actively prevents and controls the development of Bacteria, Mould, Fungus, Yeast and Algae as an active surface protectant. Once applied and bonded to a hard or soft surfaces, Aegis® Microbe Shield® protects the surface 24/7 for up to 365 days.
Aegis® is not a disinfectant - Aegis® is a long term Anti-Microbial Surface Protectant
