MicrobeCare Spray treatment, applied to surfaces by either spray or wipe, is based on a unique antimicrobial technology that is odorless, colorless, non-leaching, long-lasting, and effectively controls bacteria, fungi, algae and yeast, without dissipation. Microbes that come in contact with MicrobeCare are controlled by a complex physical and electrical interaction. The microbe’s cell membrane is attracted to the treatment and is then punctured by the molecular chain. As it is drawn closer by the positive-negative ion exchange, MicrobeCare penetrates further into the cell membrane. The cell is then ruptured, electrocuted, and destroyed by a positively charged nitrogen molecule.
> From MicrobeCare
