The information shown on this website about the effectiveness of BIOPROTECT™ RTU against microorganisms reflects the product’s authorized uses in Greece under NOM Authorization No. 124702 and is limited to authorized use of the product in Greece. Additional countries will be added in the coming weeks.
The Challenge

The overuse and misuse of disinfectants, which leave behind no effective residual protection, has become a business challenge.  Within hours of disinfection, micro-organisms will return and grow back exponentially, presenting the risk of re-infection to occupants.  In addition, microbes may absorb these cleaners and disinfectants, potentially building up a resistance that will eventually make the disinfecting agents less effective at destroying them.*

Antimicrobial coatings that remain active for extended periods of time can guard against continual surface contamination events that may occur between routine disinfection cycles. The science of these antimicrobial coatings are founded on quaternary ammonium salts or si quats.
Microbiostatic Antimicrobial Coating

Quaternary ammonium salts (Si Quats) are effective against an extensive variety of microorganisms by physically rupturing the microbe’s cell membrane and destroying the microbes on contact. They can bind to a wide range of surfaces and therefore provide long-lasting protection against microorganism colonization. When sprayed on a surface they create an invisible coating.

The coating forms a nano-bed shield of carbon nitrogen spikes (18 link – self assembling monolayer), each of which are cationic (carry a positive charge), which attracts the negatively charged microbes. Once attracted, the molecular spikes pierce the cell and rupture its cell membrane, causing metabolic disruption and leading to the death of the microorganism.  

The Si Quats have long proven effective against bacteria and mold and are now being proven effective against harmful viruses like SARS-CoV-2 or coronavirus.

The Difference Between Cleaning / Disinfecting / Protecting

Removes germs, dirt and impurities from surfaces. Cleaning works using soap and water. This does not necessarily kill germs, but removes them and lowers their numbers and the risk of spreading infection.

Kills 99.999% of bacteria, viruses, and fungi on surfaces or objects. Disinfecting cleaned surfaces reduces the risk of spreading bacterial, viral, and fungal infections. Source: ECHA


BIOPROTECT™ RTU antimicrobial surface protectant keeps surfaces free of harmful viruses, bacteria and fungi (including mold and mildew) between cleanings, for up to 90 days (3 months). Greece NOM Authorization No. 124702
