BioProtect is an EPA registered antimicrobial formula that provides long lasting protection against harmful microbes including bacteria, fungi, algae and yeast. BioProtect’s technology is unique compared to all other antimicrobial products on the market. It is a water based surface protectant that forms a long lasting bond with the substrate and inhibits the microbial growth on all applied surfaces.
BioProtect kills microbes by piercing and rupturing the cell membrane of each microbe. This kill method prevents microbes from mutating and becoming resistant to BioProtect, so no antimicrobial resistant strains or superbugs are created.
BioProtect’s molecular spikes carry a positive charge that attracts the negatively charged bacteria. Once attracted, the molecular spikes pierce the cell rupturing its cell membrane and the bacterial microorganism dies.
Traditional antimicrobial products work by penetrating living cells and killing using toxic chemicals in a process called leaching. This outdated method was designed to work rapidly and disappear quickly to avoid harming those in contact with the product.
BioProtect’s antimicrobial technology takes a completely different approach. Instead of delivering poison to kill microbes, it produces self-assembling monolayers that form a durable killing field that protects all coated surfaces from microbial attachment and colonization. This technology kills by mechanically piercing and rupturing the cell membrane of each microbe. This prevents mutation, therefore no antimicrobial resistant strains or superbugs are ever created…
