All My Shield ® products we offer are formulated with Zetrisil®, an antimicrobial shield that provides long-term protection.
Zetrisil® covalently bonds to surfaces, forming a matrix of microscopic “swords” with a high positive charge, known as high “Zeta Potential.” This high Zeta Potential means that negatively charged microbes will be drawn to the shield, where the matrix of swords will do its work. Most conventional disinfectants have low Zeta Potential.
What is Zeta Potential?
Zeta Potential is the analysis technique for determining the surface charge of nanoparticles in solution (colloids). Nanoparticles have a surface charge measured in millivolts, that attracts a thin layer of ions of opposite charge to the nanoparticle surface.
Why is Zeta Potential important for disinfectants & sanitizer?
The greater the positive charge disinfectants or sanitizing solutions has the greater killing effect against negatively charged bacteria and virus, by way of opposite pole magnetic attraction.
How does Zeta Potential improve the efficacy of disinfectants & sanitizers?
The majority of bacteria and virus are negatively charged Nano particles, with a positively charged disinfectant & or sanitizer they will be attracted to each other and agglomerate the negatively charged bacteria or virus particles around the positively charged disinfectant or sanitizer solution therefore improving the kill time and efficacy rate per volume of liquid or disinfectant or sanitizer.
