FAQ’s

Shield Us Tech® and My-shield® Products

▸ How does the antimicrobial work?

The active ingredient forms a colorless, odorless, positively charged polymer that chemically bonds to the treated surface. You could think of it as a layer of electrically charged swords. When a microorganism comes in contact with the treated surface, the quaternary amine “sword” punctures the cell membrane and the electrical charge “shocks” the cell.

▸ What makes your Hand Sanitizer unique?

Most hand sanitizers contain up to 70% alcohol. Germfree 24 Hand Sanitizer is alcohol-free and non-flammable. It also contains Aloe-Vera, which softens your hands and eliminates drying out your hands, unlike our Competitor’s alcohol-based products. One spray lasts all day!

▸ Will My Shield Hand Sanitizer wash or rub off?

No. Our FDA Registered My Shield® Hand Sanitizer will not wash/rub off and will remain active on the skin’s surface for up to 24 hours.  The product is removed as the skin naturally exfoliates.

▸ What is the difference between your products and other antimicrobials out in the marketplace?

Most commercial antimicrobials are capable of providing a quick inhibition of bacteria and fungi (although some have a limited spectrum of effectiveness). Conventional products penetrate living cells and kill by way of poisoning the organism, usually using, bleach, alcohol, formaldehydes, triclosan and other poisonous chemicals.
They are designed to act and dissipate quickly to avoid adverse effects to humans and animals due to their toxic ingredients. Our coating takes a totally different approach. Our products provide an effective initial microbial kill when it is applied, and unlike the others, it also provides long-term control of growth on treated surfaces by creating a modified surface to make them antimicrobial.

▸ What preparation is necessary prior to applying the surface treatments?

For best results, surfaces should be cleaned free of debris.

▸ What types of microorganisms do the surface treatments work against?

They are effective against most common bacteria, yeasts, molds, mildew and fungi that cause stains, odors and product degradation.

▸ Does this mean I don’t have to clean my surfaces as much or as carefully?

No. The product provides continuous antimicrobial protection that protects the surfaces. However, normal cleaning practices should be maintained

▸ What about PPE? (Personal Protective Equipment)

Our products are water-based, non-toxic and extremely safe.  When using the Surface Products for treatment applications, we recommend applying in a well-ventilated area, wearing gloves and protective eyewear as an extra safety precaution.  Follow all label directions and Safety Data Sheets.
