90 DAY TEST
We treated a number of test plates with the Bioarmor-nano product and then added a test bacteria (E-coli). We immediately tested 50% of the test plates and achieved 99.9% efficacy rate.
We securely stored the other 50 percent (under laboratory conditons) and tested again after a 90 day period and again got a 99.9% efficacy with no reduction.
Our product is a long-lasting, nano-thin, air-drying surface coating that is infused with nano-size particles of nanosilver.
The product has been tested in our own laboratories and checked by independent laboratories in the UK for efficacy against: Staphylococcus aureus, MRSA & E-coli against which the results showed a 99.9% reduction,
We have recently completed testing on a virus surrogate - phi 6 - that's often used as surrogate test for coronavirus & influenza virus. Our coating achieved an efficacy of 95%.
Our product was submitted to the BPR in europe and has several BPR numbers allocated. Bioarmor-nano can be sold throughout the EU and in the UK under this BPR ruling. EU BPR (528/2012) product type 4. .
In the USA our nanosilver is EPA registered from the supplier under the EPA registration Number 83587-3.
Our testing on additives & coatings are performed to ISO standards.
We use ISO 22196 for bacterial tests and a modified ISO 21702 for our virus (phi6) tests.
Bioarmor-nano antibacterial surface coatings are new weapons in the war against harmful microbes, bacteria - and now - viruses. We have rigorously tested the effectiveness of our antimicrobial products in our own labs and in independent UK labs to confirm our efficacy rates of 99.9% on Staphylococcus aureus, MRSA & E-coli PLUS a 95% efficacy on *Phi6 bacteriophage - a common test surrogate for the corona and influenza enveloped virus types.
Our product a great is an advance on other surface cleaners because it is an 'active' surface protection that lasts for 3 months, continually attacking microbes that landing on your treated layer.
The surface layer is nano-thin (under 150nm) and contains super tiny nano-particles (under 50nm) of silver-ions which interfere with the cells of the harmful bacteria & certain viruses (tested on phi 6).
We have selected 'wet-wipes' as our application system simply because they're easy to use and we can formulate the saturation for different packs. Each sachet will cover around 1m2 or multiple objects.
We are an antimicrobial product. The definition of antimicrobial is 'Antimicrobial products kill or slow the spread of microorganisms. Microorganisms include bacteria, viruses, protozoans, and fungi such as mold and mildew..
Our wet-wipes are biodegradable and all our packaging with the exception of the sachet is recyclable.
Our products are curently available from: WH Smith, Rymans, Robert Dyas, A1 Comms, Amazon and that list is updated regularly (please see our stockists page for details)
Our antibacterial surface coating is nano-thin and invisible. Doesn't affect touch sensitivity on screens. Antibac wet-wipes.
* We did our antiviral testing on a bacteriophage surrogate phi6. This in an enveloped virus type and often used in tests as a surrogate for coronavirus & influenza virus.
Protective antibacterial coatings work on hard, non-porous surfaces you'll find in your home,office, car, hotel - plus your pet products, kids toilet training products and tech/gadgets/remotes and game controllers.
FAQS (Frequently asked questions)
My wet-wipe looks Amber in colour?
The actual antibacterial agent is in fact an amber colour which is quite normal.
My wet-wipe looks dark brown and seems to be gathered in the folds of the tissue?
This looks bad but is in fact an indication that the 'automated machine filler' has added an increased amount of the antibacterial agent to the sachet and it has 'gathered in the folds. Thhis is an uncommon event but happens on a few occasions. This doesn't affect the efficacy and is OK to use as per the instruction leaflet. As mentioned before the normal colour of the tissues would be amber to light brown.
How do I know when it's time to re-apply?
We suggest re-applying to most surfaces after 90 days. For glass phone/tablet screens that are getting used heavily - we would suggest checking earlier if possible.
How do I check?
The bioarmor-nano coating has some hydrophobic qualities so - where there is no danger from electrical currents etc. - you can place a few droplets of water onto the surface. If the water goes into 'tight balls' it's likely the coating is still active. We recommend re-application every 90 days.
