Less Stress on the Environment

Bio-Protect 500 and Bio-Protect7200 are the environmentally friendly and user friendly antimicrobial. These products contain no heavy metals, arsenic, tin or polychlorinated phenols. PureShield addresses the two main ecological concerns associated with leaching antimicrobials: bleeding harmful toxins into the environment and the generation of adaptive organisms (superbugs) with Bio-Protect.

What happens to Bio-Protect 500 and Bio-Protect 7200 after a treated garment is thrown away or discarded?

A shirt treated with this technology and placed in a landfill will break down to basic components in about five years: carbon dioxide, nitrous oxide, and silicon dioxide (sand or quartz) from which it was derived.

The Obvious Choice

All antimicrobials are NOT created equal. It is important to understand the basic chemical, physical, and biological properties of an antimicrobial so the best choice can be made.

Because of its unique mode of action and inability to migrate from a treated surface, our technology is the obvious choice to minimize environmental contamination and the development of resistant organisms.
