Active Shield+ uses QOS (Quaternary Organo Silane) which has additional property to stick the QAC compound to the base of applied material thus forming a protection layer on the coated surface. Once applied on a surface, Active Shield+ coating forms an invisible micron level needle like molecular structure (negatively charged on molecular level) which attracts the microbes puncturing the shell of the microbe and thus inhibiting its growth on the applied surface. This gives the surface the protection required.
In general, there are three mechanisms of action or ways that affect or kill a micro organism:
1: [Cross-linking, coagulating, clumping] – usually Alcohol based or phenol based resulting in fire or strong odour risks,
2: [Oxidising] – Like Chlorine, Sodium hypochlorite or peroxygen compounds some of which are corrosive in nature,
3: [structure and function disruption] like Quaternary ammonium compounds (quats) are some of the most widely used antimicrobial agent today because of their broad spectrum effectiveness.
QAC (Quaternary ammonium compounds) work by denaturing the proteins of the bacterial or fungal cell, affecting the metabolic reactions of the cell and causing vital substances to leak out of the cell, causing death.

Active Shield+ uses modified QAC ut with a added molecule of Silane hence called QOS (Quaternary Organo Silane).
QOS property to stick the QAC compound to the base of applied material and form a non-leaching bond with the surface.
Once applied on a surface, Active Shield+ coating forms an invisible micron level needle like molecular protective structure which punctures the shell of the microbe and thus inhibits its growth.
Advantage - once applied on a surface, you can be sure that Active Shield+ will work 24x7 and protect the applied surface from growth of any microbes making it safer for users to touch the high touch areas and surfaces for longer periods provided the coating is not scratched or scrubbed away.
ASP (All purpose Surface cleaner & Protection) is a essentially a surface cleaner which leaves no mark on glass or any glossy surface and it has a property to leave a protective coat. The solution can be used for cleaning most surfaces in the building and applying as a protective coating for safety from mold growth or any microbial growth. ASP cleaning solution uses Active Shield+ technology. It has to be applied on a already disinfected surface to ensure its best performance.
