AEGIS Microbe Shield® - liquid antimicrobial
AEGIS® is a revolutionary bonded antimicrobial technology for polymers and textiles.
AEGIS Microbe Shield® is a full spectrum liquid antimicrobial suitable for use in a wide range of urethane cross-linked chemistries including urethane foams, coatings, and Reaction Injection Molding (RIM) processes. AEGIS® technology is an easy to process liquid formulation that can be pre-mixed into polyols and provides excellent antimicrobial activity in finished products and long-term stability and durability in polymer applications.
AEGIS Microbe Shield®
The active ingredient in AEGIS® forms a protective coating that can molecularly bond with products upon application. Bacteria are attracted to the coating’s positive charge, and upon coming into contact with the treated surface, they quickly die. When applied to surfaces, AEGIS forms a colorless, odorless, positively charged polymer that attracts, then electrocutes and ruptures, a microbe’s negatively charged cell membrane. AEGIS® inhibits the growth of microbes on surfaces by utilizing a charge disruption mode of action. 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), eliminating odor, stains and deterioration.
Unlike many other chemical disinfectants that control microbes which can require constant re-application or have unwanted side effects, including damage or discoloration on product surfaces, toxicity to living organisms or environmental damage, AEGIS® technology has a history of safe use and durable, ensuring long-lasting antimicrobial efficacy.
