As the MicroShield 360 system is relatively new to the market we understand there’s going to be questions surrounding it. Below is a list of the most commonly asked. If your question is not listed here feel free to reach out directly and ask!
What are the typical end markets that use MicroShield 360?
A more appropriate question is what markets don’t make sense? Given its unique ability to provide protection WHILE people are in the facility the potential end markets are literally endless. It can be deployed as a competitive differentiator, a way to reduce risk, or a method to protect staff and employees. It also prevents mold growth lending itself to a whole additional list of markets.
How do we know it works?
How do you know any disinfection products work? Our system has been put through rigorous screening by the EPA as well as the FDA. They must validate the claims to our product otherwise we can’t market them as we do. Additionally, we have numerous 3rd party tests proving the efficacy of the system which we continue to expand upon. All of this is at your disposal to help sell the system.
Does the surface have to be clean?
Yes. We require each location be properly cleaned prior to application of the MicroShield 360 system. Remember, this is a coating so it will adhere to any surface including dirt. Once that dirt is removed so it the coating. We request all visible dirt/grim be cleaned before an applicator enters. We do utilize a 2-step process which impart a high-level disinfectant to prep the surface for the coating.
How long does it take to dry?
Just a few minutes. The mist is so fine that normal air movement in a facility will allow the coating to dry very quickly. The facility is immediately available for use post drying therefore downtime is minimal.
What surfaces can’t be sprayed?
Technically the only surface the coating won’t adhere to is silicon. Having said that we do not recommend spraying glass or mirrors as they can be difficult to polish should the applicator overspray. Remember, this system is focused on high tough points and glass/mirrors traditionally do not fall into that category.
How safe it the coating system?
When applied according to the label it is non-toxic. When the coating is still in liquid form (prior to application and drying) is the state it poses the most risk which is still very minimal. Once the coating is dried and bonded it will never leave the surface. This unique technology is how we were able to get FDA approval for direct food contact surfaces. The coating will not “leach” off the surface. Its permanently bonded.
