Cationic Charged, Antimicrobial Nano-Silicone Solution
What is Zetrisil?
Zetrisil® is a proprietary nano-based silicone compound created by ESC Brands that is used solely or in conjunction with either isopropyl alcohol or conventional quaternary ammonium compounds.
Zetrisil® effectively protects and/or “shields” the area any My-shield® or Germfree24® product is applied to from bacterial contamination by way of a long-lasting, cationic-charged, anti-microbial nano-silicone coating.
How does it work?
Zetrisil-based formulations are effective as a bacterial static to instant complete 99.9999% broad spectrum kill against bacteria & viruses, with the additional benefit of a persistent kill up to 28 days per application.
How is the efficacy measured?
The analysis technique for determining the surface charge of nanoparticles in a solution (colloids) is called “Zeta Potential”. Nanoparticles have a surface charge measured in millivolts that attracts a thin layer of ions of opposite charge to the nanoparticle surface.
Why is Zeta Potential important for Disinfectants & Sanitizers?
The greater the positive charge disinfectants or sanitizing solutions have, the greater killing effect against negatively charged bacteria and virus, by way of opposite pole magnetic attraction.
How does Zeta Potential improve the efficacy of Disinfectants & Sanitizers?
The majority of bacteria and viruses are negatively charged nano particles. With a positively charged disinfectant and/or sanitizer they will be attracted to each other and agglomerate the negatively-charged bacteria or virus particles around the positively-charged disinfectant or sanitizer solution therefore improving the kill time and efficacy rate per volume of liquid, disinfectant or sanitizer.
Can Zeta potential kill bacteria and virus’s magnetically?
Yes. By way of changing the magnetic charge around the bacteria or virus cell, it can damage the cell wall membrane causing osmosis imbalance to the bacteria or virus, causing the cell wall to rupture, lyse, and explode.
