How Aegis® Works

Antimicrobial Protection Company (AMPC®) is proud to utilize (AEM 5700) known world wide as “Aegis® Microbe Shield®”, a revolutionary innovation changing the battle against the effects of bacteria, mold, mildew, yeasts, and fungi.

Aegis®'s active ingredient is composed of positively - charged molecules shaped like a layer of swords; this coating actively prevents and controls the development of Bacteria, Mould, Fungus, Yeast and Algae as an active surface protectant. Once applied and bonded to a hard or soft surfaces, Aegis® Microbe Shield® protects the surface 24/7 for up to 365 days.

About Aegis®

Open Your World

AEGIS® is made with an active ingredient that forms a colorless, odorless positively charged polymer that creates a molecular bonds to treated surfaces. The AEGIS® application cures into a layer of swords which attract negatively charged microbes. When microorganisms meet with surfaces treated with AEGIS®, the C-18 molecular sword punctures the cell membrane and delivers a static shock to the cell. Destruction is rapid. AEGIS®-cured surface treatments maintain effectiveness for extended use and periods of time.

Frequently Asked Questions

1Will Aegis® Adversely Affect Skin or the Environment?
AEGIS® has decades of experience. The antimicrobial is permanently bound to the surfaces it protects, it does not leach from the fabric or treated surface to the skin or into the environment. In fact, AEGIS® is used on baby nappies to prevent rash.
2What is the difference between the AEGIS® Microbe Shield products and other antimicrobials?
Conventional products penetrate living cells and kill by way of poisoning the organism or disrupting a vital life process. They are designed to act quickly and dissipate quickly. Most commercial antimicrobials used for treating surfaces do an adequate job of killing bacteria and fungi, although most have a limited range of effectiveness. AEGIS® is not a disinfectant or sanitizer. AEGIS® technology takes a totally unique approach. It delivers a bacteriostatic effect, but, unlike the conventional methods, it also provides long-term control of growth on treated surfaces, often for the life of that surface. The surface itself is modified to make it antimicrobial active.
3Do the AEGIS® products give off gases after application?
No. AEGIS® does not volatilize, dissipate, or leach onto other surfaces or into the environment. The chemistry polymerizes where it is applied and forms a permanent bond that typically lasts for the life of the treated surface. Normal cleaning should not remove the treatment; although it can be abraded away.
4How is the treatment applied?
For Soft Furnishing
The AEGIS products are applied in aqueous solution and can be inserted into almost any wet process during manufacturing at the mill. They can also be applied to finished goods. The antimicrobial is easily integrated into a moist jet, pad, and batch processes. The antimicrobial is cationic so it mixes well with other cationic and nonionic finishes (most softeners) and performs well in the same bath.
For Hard surfaces
AEGIS can be treated on any hard surfaces by either fogging, wipe down, soaking or paint rolling on the target substrate
5How long does the treatment last?
Since the cured antimicrobial is nonvolatile, insoluble, and non-leaching, the treatment may last a year or more. The life of a treated surface depends on a number of factors, not the least of which is surface preparation. If you treat a dirty or unstable surface, when the dirt comes off or the surface is disturbed, some of the antimicrobials will be removed with it. Abrasive or caustic (pH>10.5) cleaners will also shorten an effective life.
