How does the BactiBarrier Cleaning System work?
The active ingredient in the BactiBarrier Cleaning System is an antimicrobial that forms a colorless, odorless, positively charged polymer, which permanently bonds to the treated surface. You could think of it as a layer of electrically charged spears. When a microorganism comes in contact with the treated surface, the quaternary amine spear punctures the cell membrane and the electrical charge shocks the cell. Since nothing is transferred to the now dead cell, the antimicrobial doesn't lose strength and the spear is ready for the next cell to contact it.
What is the difference between the BactiBarrier Cleaning System and other antimicrobial cleaning systems on the market?
Conventional antimicrobial cleaning systems penetrate living cells and kill by way of poisoning the organism. They are designed to act quickly and dissipate quickly. Most commercial antimicrobials used for treating building surfaces do a great job of getting a quick kill on bacteria and fungi, although most have a limited spectrum of effectiveness. The BactiBarrier technology takes a totally unique approach. It provides an effective initial microbial kill when applied, like the conventional methods, but it also provides long-term control of growth on treated surfaces. The surface itself is modified to make it antimicrobially active without changing the look or feel of the surface.
