ÆGIS Microbe Shield by Microban

We realize sanitary environments and the prevention of microbes in spaces have increasingly become important. We can offer the aegis microbe shield technology for all our carpets, creating an effective line of defence against microbial contamination. However, we need to communicate that the Aegis Microban treatment has not effectively killed disease pathogens such as COVID-19.

Features of Aegis Microban

AVOID MICROBIAL CONTAMINATION

Mold, mildew, bacteria, fungi, yeasts. Aegis Microbe Shield provides protection and safe, effective solutions to microbial contamination to prevent future problems from happening.

C-18 Molecular sword

When a microorganism comes in contact with the treated surface, the C-18 molecular sword punctures the cell membrane, and the electrical charge shocks the cell. Since nothing is transferred to the now dead cell, the antimicrobial does not lose strength, and the sword is ready for the next cell to contact it.

ODORLESS AND FACTORY APPLIED

The Aegis microbe shield takes a unique approach. It provides an effective initial microbial kill, but, unlike the conventional methods, it also provides long-term control of growth on treated surfaces, often for the life of that surface. However, abrasive or caustic (pH>10.5) cleaners will shorten effective life.

HOW TO ORDER / SPECIFY

Add Aegis to any existing or future carpet specification. The additional cost is only $1.90 /Sq Yard and can be added to any product as long as the minimum order is 125 Sq Yard.

A message from Microban International about Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Recently, many of Microban’s customers have questions about the effectiveness of Microban’s built-in antimicrobial technologies against coronavirus COVID-19. Microban is the world leader in antimicrobial technologies and odor control solutions. Microban also has other product lines related to disinfection. Our built-in antimicrobial technologies are effective against a plethora of product damaging microbes, but are not currently proven to have any antiviral properties when built-into products. The active technology itself may be effective against viruses in pure state, but not when incorporated into a product. Microban antimicrobial product protection works to minimize damaging microbial growth on the surface of products, ensuring they remain cleaner and fresher between cleanings. The technologies also help to reduce the risk of premature product degradation. Microban – a trusted name in antimicrobial technology – has revolutionized product cleanliness with protection that lives on. Microban antimicrobial technologies are a key ingredient in the fight against product damaging microbes.

Standard recommendations to prevent the spread of coronavirus COVID-19 include regular hand washing, sneezing and coughing into a sleeve/tissue, and thoroughly cooking meat and eggs. Regularly cleaning products and surfaces with disinfectants can also help. We suggest you follow the advice of your local health authorities in preventing the spread of coronavirus COVID-19.

Microban antimicrobial product protection is not intended to control disease pathogens.
