“UltraNanoClean” Antimicrobial Protectants

Both animate and inanimate objects routinely serve as reservoirs for the colonization and transmission of pathogenic microorganisms such as bacteria, viruses like CORONAVIRUS and fungi. Microbial colonization occurs after a single microorganism or “germ” successfully adheres to a suitable surface and begins reproduction. When skin or other objects come in contact with a contaminated surface, germs can be transferred to the new surface for adhesion and growth, often resulting in infection and further transmission.

The traditional mode of action to combat transmission of harmful microorganisms on surfaces is to attack the germs with varying degrees of poisonous chemicals. These poisons are designed to target and destroy a microbe’s outer membrane (and then its internal DNA). After the poisons are applied on a surface to achieve an “instant kill”, the surface is once again susceptible to recontamination after the product evaporates. Frequent application of such disinfectant products degrades surfaces such as plastics, metals and composites and dries skin to the point of pain and cracking. Individuals applying such chemicals subject themselves to toxic fumes and skin burns, thus making skin & respiratory protection equipment a necessity.

UltraNanoClean Protectants are very different. While every bit as and more effective than their highly toxic counterparts, Green ‘UltraNanoClean’ products creates nano mechanical and very fast killing chemical action. While in suspension, the inert particulates remain free and can be measured independently. When applied to targeted surfaces, UltraNanoClean products form a mineral-enhanced, mechanically bonded nano protective layer, becoming one with the surface and capable of providing instant antimicrobial action and lasting defense. UltraNanoClean products kill pathogens on contact and then stay in place, greatly extending the window of protection to hours, up to 30 days (depending on product, surface & method).

While undetectable to the human eye or touch, UltraNanoClean mechanically modified surfaces become unsuitable environments for sustaining pathogenic microbial life. Under extreme magnification, the newly modified surface can be seen to be composed of sharp, irregularly shaped, jagged crystals which proves extremely deadly to microbes. Microbes and viruses that are unfortunate enough to come in contact with a UltraNanoClean modified surface, exhaust themselves and die.

Through a standing partnership with the University of Liverpool’s world renown “Open Innovation Hub for Antimicrobial Surfaces”, [a global think-tank focused on designing and engineering a new generation of intelligent surfaces and materials that are capable of inhibiting bacterial, viral, and fungal attachment and proliferation], intensive observation and testing has furthered the development and understanding of UltraNanoClean technology. During a recent product test-result review on site at Liverpool, the project’s head researcher described the tech as “truly remarkable”. This new “platinum” level of antimicrobial protection is achieved without the reliance on harsh chemicals.

Tackling Tough Microbes & Combating Antimicrobial Resistance

According to the World Health Organization, Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) is an increasingly serious threat to global public health. Antimicrobial resistance occurs when microorganisms, (such as bacteria, fungi, viruses and parasites) change or “fight back” when they are exposed to antimicrobial chemicals. Microorganisms use many different defense strategies when facing antibiotic or antimicrobial agents. Examples of such strategies as described by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) include:

  • Blocking access of the antimicrobial drug through use of outer membranes
  • Forming and utilizing internal pumps to purge antimicrobial drugs that enter the cell
  • Releasing enzymes to destroy antimicrobial chemicals
  • Mutating to avoid processing the antimicrobial chemical
  • Synthesizing compounds to change cell structure, making target cell incompatible

Microorganisms that develop AMR are sometimes referred to as “superbugs”.  Effective options are limited when facing these superbugs and as a result, researchers and healthcare administrators find themselves utilizing chemicals of higher and higher toxicity and danger levels. While antimicrobial resistance occurs naturally over time, the misuse and overuse of antimicrobial chemicals is accelerating the process.

UltraNanoClean: Game Changer on virus Protection and More!

Unlike the traditional approach of chemically attacking infectious microbes, UltraNanoClean products target the surfaces microbes depend on for survival. Rather than relying on biocidal chemical action to attack and kill infectious microbes, Ultra Clean takes a mechanical, defensive approach. UltraNanoClean coated surfaces are transformed and outfitted with a crystalline barrier that is impenetrable to pathogenic microbes. The barrier cannot be destroyed with enzymes, and there is no chemical for the microbe to pump, divert or process. Microbes that come in contact with an Ultra Clean treated surface cannot survive. Not only do UltraNanoClean antimicrobials offer extreme product efficacy and safety, they are not a contributor to the escalating problem of antimicrobial resistance.

Signal & Adhesion Disrupter

Microorganisms utilize electrochemical signaling to monitor and react to the environment and other microbes. Much like radar or sonar, microbes transmit a signal to the surface and react based on the signal returned. Further signaling between large populations of microbes [quorum sensing] influences proliferation and pathogenesis.

Researchers have reported curious findings when observing microbe behavior and signaling on UltraNanoClean treated surfaces. Much like the proven and historical use of crystals in radio transmitting, it is believed that the Ultra Clean crystalline barrier also functions as a mechanical and electrical impulse transmitter; effectively interfering with microbial signaling. The disruption of this critical survival function is fatal in nature and no type of microbial resistance can be developed as a defense.

Electrical Conductivity Enhancer

When a signaling microbe approaches any surface, electrostatic attraction [or repulsion] also comes in to play[1]. How strongly a microbe is drawn and attached to a surface is influenced by the force of the attraction [or repulsion] between the two. Through UltraNanoClean s proprietary process of mechanical manipulation during production, the crystalline surface barrier carries a natural positive electrical charge. This charge is further enhanced when applied via an electrostatic applicator, intensifying the attraction between pathogenic microbes and the treated antimicrobial surface.

Combination of Effects

  • Non-toxic formulas safe on any type of surface
  • Mechanical surface modification interferes with microbial adhesion
  • Crystalline structures disrupt electrochemical signaling
  • Intensified electromagnetic attraction draws pathogenic microbes to treated surfaces

Touting extreme efficacy, ecological safety and multifaceted [non-chemical] modes of action, the UltraNanoClean antimicrobial technology can tackle superbugs while safeguarding against antimicrobial resistance. It kills viruses in seconds.
