This contribution has been part of the medical community’s actions aimed at improving the hygienic nature of their environment as they take steps towards asepsis.
Treatment of fabrics used in all areas have shown the benefits of reducing microorganisms. Reduced odors, staining, and deterioration as well as the real opportunity to enhance product value by reducing reservoirs and amplification sites for problem causing microorganisms improves products and steps towards asepsis.
Pathogens inactivated by compound in PreventX 24/7 – Application and Reference Documents
On the last day of testing PreventX 24/7 actually performed better than the test average reducing bio levels overnight 613% better than the untreated side and keep total bio-loads down by more than 161% over the untreated surfaces.
Improved Control of Microbial Exposure Hazards in Hospitals
This document discusses how a chemically bonded organofunctional silane antimicrobial has been and can be successfully used to reduce microbial dose on multiple substrates in a healthcare setting, i.e., medical nonwovens, blankets and linens, wound care materials, uniforms and the hard surfaces that enclose and protect the healthcare environment.
Hard surfaces are nonporous surfaces. Soft surfaces include carpeting, fabrics, fabric covered furniture and textilesThe coverage rate (sf/quart) is entirely dependent on the applicator. (Over-application yields less coverage and vica versa)All clients must understand that coverage rates are highly variable and that we do not guarantee coverage rates
