Deadly microorganisms on the surfaces around us
Contaminated surfaces help spread COVID-19, H1N1, tuberculosis and a host of other diseases. Bacteria and viruses can lurk on light switches, elevator buttons, armrests and other surfaces, ready to infect anyone who touches them.
A photocatalytic coating that keeps surfaces sanitized
GermStopSQ uses photocatalytic nanotechnology to protect high-touch surfaces from bacteria, viruses, fungi and more. Our non-toxic coating adheres to microorganisms and ruptures their protective outer layer, killing them on contact.
Most other sanitizing products kill germs, but the effect lasts only a few minutes or hours after they’re applied. GermStopSQ is different. Thanks to the nanotechnology adhesive in our formula, it can stick to virtually any surface — including metal, plastic and fabric — and won’t come off easily unless it’s scrubbed or dissolved in water. Our active ingredient keeps the surface sanitized around the clock for days, weeks and even months, while GermStopSQ’s special photocatalytic ingredient provides an extra boost of disinfection every time it’s exposed to light.
Initial testing in several accredited labs found that our coating material is 99.9999 per cent effective at killing common bacteria like E. coli, as well as superbugs like methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and vancomycin-resistant enterococci (VRE). It also works against enveloped viruses, like the coronavirus responsible for COVID-19. Plus, it’s been proven effective against non-enveloped viruses such as the highly contagious norovirus.
Safe & easy to use
The coating is completely nontoxic and easy to apply in public, commercial and residential facilities. Just apply it to hospital handrails, airport kiosks, bus seats, office elevators and other hot spots to create a protective, non-porous nanofilm. Or offer customers greater peace of mind by adding GermStopSQ to new products right on the assembly line.
Bottom line benefits
Every year, infectious diseases kill 17 million people around the world. And the price tag is staggering. In Canada alone, the costs of health care, medications and lost productivity created by communicable disease add up to more than $8 billion a year.
GermStopSQ reduces their spread by safeguarding cashier stations, pharmacy counters, daycare play areas and other high-risk surfaces from contamination. Our cost-effective, round-the-clock protection makes a world of difference — to human health and your bottom line.
