Antimicrobial Coatings: A Long-Term Solution
Silver Bullet AM™ with Agion® Technology is a high gloss, high durability water-based epoxy that contains an EPA registered Silver/Copper Ion antimicrobial compound. Once applied, it has the ability to protect the coated surface from a broad spectrum of bacteria, mold, mildew, algae and fungi. Silver Bullet AM works by disrupting the reproduction and inhibiting metabolism of microbial cells. Silver Bullet AM is for interior applications only. VOC compliant (171g/l or 1.45 # per gallon).
Despite your facility’s best intentions and your regular cleaning procedures, surfaces in your building can retain bacteria, mold and mildew, fungi, and algae. This can happen on commercial door handles and handrails, in restrooms and food service areas, and more. When an employee, vendor, visitor, patient, or customer comes in contact with these pathogens, this can trigger allergies and asthma, and spread disease—and, to make matters worse, your HVAC system can pick up these pathogens, spreading them throughout your entire facility.
Antimicrobial coatings by Silver Bullet AM™ is a powerful solution. Here are some details:
- Silver Bullet AM™ was also proven to be 99.9 percent effective, according to a study by the University of Arizona, against a variety of harmful bacteria.
- You can benefit from long-lasting protection against dangerous microbes after just one application, including E. Coli, legionella, listeria, salmonella, and types of pneumonia.
Antimicrobial Surface Coating Application Methods
- One gallon or five gallon buckets in clear, black, or white
- Clear acrylic antimicrobial aerosol spray
This antimicrobial protective coating is ideal to protect areas of your facility where severe chemical washing occurs, as well as on the ductwork of your HVAC system. This composition of the solution makes Silver Bullet AM a significant improvement over standard organic antimicrobials. That’s because these traditional products dissipate quickly, while Silver Bullet AM is long lasting because of its stable ion exchange process.
Plus, it’s easy to apply, whether that’s on metal, wood, or concrete. It dries quickly, being tack-free within 20 minutes to an hour; fully dried within a few hours; and completely cured within a week.
How Pathogens Spread
Through your building’s HVAC system, pathogens can be picked up from the walls, floors, ceilings, and other surfaces as it circulates air to warm or cool the structure. Then, the system recirculates the pathogens, spreading them throughout the building. Plus, in the HVAC system itself, damp spots can become ideal breeding grounds for bacterial growth, which is then spread throughout the facility.
