8-Hour Defense is fast acting nano particulate silica that prevents bacteria and virus particles from attaching to surfaces. It is a chemically inert solution composed of silica dioxide (SiO2) crystals held in suspension.
And, it's alcohol FREE.
For years, science has combated bio-hazards with “Chemical Kills” – utilizing toxic chemicals to kill a dangerous biological threat (bacteria, viruses, etc.). Study and advancements in the field of Nanotechnology, has led to the creation of a “Mechanical Kill” mechanism, whereby coating an object will kill the cells of the bio threat trying to attach to the object. The MBS coating is approximately 4 Nano meters in size, as opposed to most microbial matter, which is 90-100 Nano meters in size, making it impervious to the bio-hazard. The material has been developed in such a way, that it creates a “Micro Crystalline Structure”.
The history behind 8 Hour Defense
Dr. Erwin Lo, a material Specialist, collaborated 15 years ago to develop soluble antimicrobial solution to protect multiple diverse surfaces and the result was an elemental silica solution that is dissolvable in any water based solution. The antimicrobial effect occurs when the solution dries leaving behind a 4nm silica dioxide crystalline layer.
During the week of October 27th, 2014, a Safety laboratory conducted extensive testing of this material. The 8-Hour Defense was tested against numerous bacteria, molds, fungi, algae and viruses; enveloped and non- enveloped, this includes the current strains of the EBOLA virus.
As predicted, none of the bacteria, molds, fungi, algae, viruses or organisms were able to penetrate or survive contact with the 8-Hour Defense Sanitizer Coating.
