For 20 years, nano-coatings have been a part of consumers’ lives, making clothing water and stain repellent and glass “easy-clean”. The technology that delivers a permanently bonded ‘glass like’ coating to any hard surface is now available with an antimicrobial property that kills pathogens on surface contact. Nano-Care UK has launched a new antimicrobial nano-coating consumer kit: Germ Wipe-out 365, which is ideal for use on high-touch surfaces in and around the home.
Antimicrobial Germ Wipe-out 365 is ‘powered by Liquid Guard’, the newest generation of surface protection making any surface ‘self-disinfecting’ through the antimicrobial active ingredient within the nano-coating. It kills viruses, bacteria, moulds and fungi on surface contact, ensuring everyday household surfaces stay clean and don’t transmit infections between family members and guests. It’s even effective against dust mites!
Many items of personal IT equipment are shared or taken between home, school or work and are rarely cleaned; Germ Wipe-out 365 is ideal for protecting these items from transferring viruses and bacteria between users. It can also be used on all types of hard surface around the home, such as door handles, light switches, desks, tables and car interiors, in fact, any surfaces that are frequently touched by all family members.
Liquid Guard, the Germ Wipe-out 365 antimicrobial ingredient, has been laboratory tested and certified for its effectiveness against enveloped viruses, such as coronaviruses (including SARS-CoV-2), Influenza A, MRSA, E.coli and many more everyday bacteria, moulds and fungi.
Since its launch in December 2019, Liquid Guard was crowned as a ‘German Innovation’ award winner, and has been used in schools, government offices, gyms and football stadiums in the UK. Ongoing field trials of the 100’s of thousands of metres that have been treated validate Liquid Guards' ongoing antimicrobial activity through ATP swab testing and the results are available for scrutiny. This ability to provide tangible evidence of effectiveness repels any onlookers attempted association with “The Emperors’ New Clothes” - it really is proven technology, and is set to make great strides in the promotion of “surface protection technology” as a new fixture in long-term germ control.
Home application is easy with a simple two-part spray and wipe action. First with a pre-cleaner and primer followed by the antimicrobial coating, which then needs six hours to cure, after which time, the surface is fully active. Complete instructions are included in the box, along with an application video on YouTube.
Each Germ Wipe-out 365 kit will cover approximately 3-4 m2 and contains a 30 ml bottle of cleaner/primer and Germ Wipe-out 365, four biodegradable wipes and gloves. Kits are ideal for trade counters, and online retailers with a minimum purchase of 10 kits.
Germ Wipe-out 365 provides retailers with an opportunity to offer families and small businesses a very affordable twelve months microbial protection from the transfer of transient microbes via the hand-surface-hand infection route. By reducing the spread of infections, coughs and colds at home and within the community, those who are susceptible to illness have the best chance of remaining healthy. Liquid Guard has been tested and certified effective against the SARS-CoV-2 virus which causes the Covid-19 disease.
