  • AEGIS is manufactured by DOW Chemical and globally owned by Microban with PROTECT as the global distributor for the aftercare market.

AEGIS is a cationic antimicrobial that’s attracted to the microbe’s cell wall and neutralizes the cell wall’s natural protection by interacting with cellular proteins needed to maintain cell wall integrity. Its charge-disruption mode of action leads to the eventual breakdown of the microbial cell (also known as lysis).

Registered with and approved for use by Health Canada (Registration number PMRA PCP #15133). Registered with and approved for use by the US EPA (Registration Number #64881-1, 64881-2).
