What is Zetrisil®?
Zetrisil® is a proprietary nano-based silicone compound created by My-Shield that is used solely or in conjunction with either isopropyl alcohol or conventional quaternary ammonium compounds. Zetrisil® effectively protects and/or “shields” the area any My-shield® or Germfree24® product is applied to from bacterial contamination by way of a long-lasting, cationic-charged, anti-microbial nano-silicone coating.
How does Zetrisil® work?
Our Zetrisil-based formulations are effective as a bacterial static to instant complete 99.9999% broad spectrum kill against bacteria & viruses, with the additional benefit of a persistent kill up to 28 days per application.
How is the efficacy of our products measured?
The analysis technique for determining the surface charge of nanoparticles in a solution (colloids) is called “Zeta Potential”. 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 & Sanitizers?
The greater the positive charge disinfectants or sanitizing solutions have, the greater killing effect against negatively charged bacteria and virus, by way of opposite pole magnetic attraction.
