How It Works
How Does Aegis® Work
Aegis® modifies treated surfaces by creating an inhospitable environment for microbes including bacteria, fungi and mould.
Under a microscope, a surface that has been treated with Aegis® would look like it was covered in thousands of tiny swords. Microbial prevention on surfaces protected by Aegis® is provided by the positive nitrogen centre of the Aegis® spike attracts microbes, and the long carbon chain punctures the cell membrane. The combination of stabbing and electrocution allows the technology to be fully effective as long as the surface remains intact.
The Science Of Aegis®
Why It’s Different
Conventional products penetrate living cells and kill by way of poisoning the organism or disrupting a vital life process. They are designed to act and dissipate quickly.
Most commercial antimicrobials do an adequate job of killing bacteria and fungi, although most have a limited range of effectiveness.
Aegis® Mibrobe Shield provides an effective surface protection and continues to provide a long-term control of microbial growth on treated surfaces.
Simply stated microbe defence provides an added layer of bio-security.
