Virus Disinfection FAQs

Electrostatic Disinfection FAQs

WHAT IS ELECTROSTATIC DISINFECTION? 

Electrostatic spray disinfection systems turn disinfectant liquid into aerosols and then apply a charge to each droplet so that they stick to surfaces through electrostatic forces.

 

WHAT PRODUCT DO YOU USE FOR ELECTROSTATIC DISINFECTION? 

We use a product developed by Canadian company, Avmor.  The product is called EcoPure EP66.  It is completely environmetally friendly and safe for people.

 

Anti-microbial Coating FAQs

 IS THE ANTI-MICROBIAL COATING A NEW PRODUCT?

Silver antimicrobial products are not new.  They have been in the market for several decades, used in industries that require a more sterile environment, or in cleaning supplies. 

 

WHAT IS  #15945 ANTI-MICROBIAL SG CLEAR LAQUER? 

The product used by GermSTOP Solutions Inc is a clear, colourless lacquer containing the active agent of silver.  It is manufactured by a company in the US, with over 100 years in the industry.

 

HOW DOES THE DISINFECTION PROCESS WORK? 

Silver nanoparticles disrupt forming of viral/microbial cells and disinfectants, killing germs on the spot. 

 

 WHAT PROOF DO YOU HAVE THAT THIS COATING WORKS?

We have 2 tests done by a lab in the UK showing results from our product on bacteria.  Check out the Anti-microbial Coating page for more information. 

 

HOW IS OUR ANTI-MICROBIAL COATING APPLIED?

We use the following:

Wipe-on lacquer embedded with silver nanoparticles to easily apply to touch surfaces. Our protective coating can be directly applied to elevator buttons, ADA buttons, touch screens, keyboards etc. It can be sprayed on or wipe-on making it a very easy application.  We spray on lacquer for larger surfaces

 

HOW LONG DOES THE PROTECTIVE COATING LAST? 

The lacquer will last general up to a year, but this depends on the amount of use the surface sees.  Very high traffic areas could be less, and infrequently touched surfaces could last much longer. 

 

HOW DO YOU KNOW THE COATING IS STILL WORKING? 

As long as the lacquer is still on the surface, the silver nano-particles are doing their disinfection.  We have a way to measure the coating thickness.  In a commercial setting, we schedule monthly checks to ensure proper protection is still happening.

 

WHAT SURFACES CAN THE COATING BE APPLIED TO? 

Our Protective coating will adhere well to Metal, Stone, Wood, Plastic, Glass - most any surface.
