FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT IS THE MEANING OF ANTIMICROBIAL?
A material with Antimicrobial properties minimizes the presence of harmful bacteria and virus by continuously inhibiting the growth of bacteria on surfaces for very long periods of time in contrast to antibacterial agents such as sprays or liquids which have a short preventive action.
WHAT IS NANO SILVER ANTIMICROBIAL TECHNOLOGY?
Our Nano Silver technology is composed of Silver Ions which have the ability to damage bacteria cells in the cell wall. When the cell wall is damaged, it is unable to reproduce, and it dies. Hence, Nano Silver being effective at eliminating bacteria when in contact with its surface.
HOW QUICKLY DOES NANO SILVER INACTIVATE BACTERIA?
The efficiency of our products will depend on the environment and concentration of bacteria on its surface.
Our Laboratory tests have demonstrated that Nano Silver can inactivate up to 99.9% of harmful bacteria and up to 93.41% of viruses within a few hours of being exposed to our Nano Silver products.
BENEFITS OF NANO SILVER ANTIMICROBIAL TECHNOLOGY?
Nano Silver technology doesn't wash off from our products. The Nano Silver particles impregnated in the product material and can provide Antibacterial protection 24/7 up to 6 months. Even if the surfaces of the film is scratched, the Antibacterial protection remains the same unlike coatings or other Antibacterial cleaning treatments.
HAS NANO SILVER EFFICACY BEEN TESTED IN A LABORATORY?
Our products have been tested in a Laboratory using the European Standard:
ISO 21702:2019 which measures the antiviral activity on plastics and other non-porous surfaces and
ISO 22196:2011 which measures antibacterial activity on plastics and other non-porous surfaces.
CAN I USE OTHER CLEANING AGENTS WITH ANTIMICROBIAL PRODUCTS?
Using regular cleaning agents will not interfere with the performance of our products. We recommend our customers to maintain the hygiene of the touch surfaces with regular cleaning to provide the most antibacterial efficiency and hygiene of the touch surfaces.
WHERE CAN I APPLY THE NANO SILVER ANTIMICROBIAL FILM?
You can apply the self-adhesive antibacterial film and covers pretty much on any touch surface which requires protection, such as; Elevator square and circle buttons, Push Door plates, Door handles, handicap access buttons, EPOS, Touch-Screen devices, Tables, Counters, Switches, and we can also customize our products to fit bespoke applications.
HOW LONG DO THE NANO SILVER ANTIMICROBIAL PROPERTIES LAST?
We recommend replacing the self-adhesive products every 6 months for the most common high traffic areas and applications. Even if the surface is scratched the Silver Ions will remain active and won't degrade the antibacterial efficiency.
HOW CAN I APPLY THE NANO SILVER ANTIBACTERIAL FILM?
Prepare the surface by cleaning from any dust and grease. Peel off the film or button cover and install in the desired surface. Keep your surface protected from cross-contamination 24/7 by replacing the film or cover every 6 months.
WHICH ARE THE MOST COMMON ENVIRONMENTS WHERE OUR PRODUCTS ARE BEING USED?
Common locations include Corporate spaces, Retail, Restaurants and Food courts, Hotels, Residential and Commercial properties, Educational institutions, Public spaces, Airports, Transport, Gyms and Locker rooms, amongst others.
