Silver Bullet AM coating is an HVAC antimicrobial coating that goes right to the source of a potential problem that exists in every building with an HVAC system. The problem is the spread of bacteria, mildew and mold.
When 221 individuals became ill while attending a 1976 American Legion Convention at the Bellevue-Stratford Hotel in Philadelphia, it was discovered that the cause of the illness was bacteria being spread by the hotel’s heating/cooling system. Dubbed Legionnaire’s Disease, 34 of those infected ended up dying as a result, and a national panic followed. It became apparent that the air being circulated by building HVAC systems could potentially be lethal if not treated to prevent the spread of dangerous microbes.
The antimicrobial properties of silver have made the Silver Bullet AM the leader for use in HVAC duct coating and sealant use.
Agion® Antimicrobial Protection – Silver Was Never So Smart!
While many companies continue to rely on concentrated chemicals to clean, Agion turns to something pure, safe, and superior Silver. A natural antimicrobial agent, working with silver not only grants a user-safe hygienic surface, but also a surface that continues to resist microbial growth after it has been cleaned, or has been produced with Agion® technology. What do we mean by produced with Agion® technology? Let’s take a closer look.
Agion® Antimicrobial Protection – A Building Block of Silver Bullet AM®
One of the most advanced, important products to hit the HVAC scene, Silver Bullet AM ® is a shop applied antimicrobial coating that inhibits the growth of odor causing bacteria, fungi, mildew, mold and algae in an HVAC system. While Agion® technology works on a smaller, more personal scale when integrated into such items as clipboards and pens, when it is built into a formula like Silver Bullet AM®, it is of paramount importance to every person that lives, works or breathes in the building in which it is used.
While HVAC systems are an advancement in the management of heating, ventilation and air conditioning, they are also an ideal breeding ground for contaminants without proper cleaning and treatment. Tucked up and out of the way, they are difficult at best to clean regularly. However, they are also facilitating airflow to every inch of a building 24 hours a day, which is precisely why such cleanliness is so important. Silver Bullet AM ® answers this potential problem as a shop applied antimicrobial coating that protects the coating on steel duct work from becoming a microbial hotbed in the first place. And that is the power of Agion® at work all day, every day!
