The only “One Application” antimicrobial disinfectant that lasts effectively for months, protecting your athletes from MRSA, Staph, H1N1, & other bacteria!
About Bacteria in Athletics
Bacteria, mold, mildew and fungi can be discovered in every environment and are part of normal everyday life. Even in the cleanest environments, many kinds of microbes will begin to multiply on surfaces in athletic facilities and sometimes reach harmful levels. If these contaminated surfaces are touched by athletes of staff members, the transfer of microbes begins, resulting in cross-contamination.
Pathogenic bacteria, such as MRSA, Staph, H1N1, & other bacteria can be spread via cross-contamination, which can lead to infection and illness in humans and animals. Bacteria, mold, mildew and fungi can also build-up on products, making them unclean, unhygienic, or discolored. MonoFoil® Technology antimicrobial additive applications provide permanent surface protection, continuously working 24/7 to inhibit the growth of microbes which can cause sickness, stains, odors or declination of products.
How it Works
MonoFoil® Technology is based on a unique antimicrobial technology which effectively controls bacteria, fungi, algae and yeasts on a wide variety of treated articles and substrates. The base active is registered with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and comparable regulatory bodies around the world. The antimicrobial has been used safely and effectively in all areas from construction to plastics as well as hospital applications. This information has been prepared in response to numerous requests for a list of microorganisms against which the technology is effective. They were selected to provide a test spectrum which is representative of all significant types and varieties of microorganisms.
This data is provided solely to assist you in understanding the capabilities of the base technology and is not a warranty. Laboratory testing is performed in a controlled environment and may or may not be representative of real world conditions. Effectiveness against an organism should not be interpreted as eliminating, controlling, minimizing or otherwise affecting health conditions which may be associated with specific organisms.
The active ingredient of the MonoFoil® Antimicrobial is an organo-functional silane technology. It physically disrupts or “disembowels” the target organism’s cell membrane on contact. Our product molecularly bonds to a treated substrate, thus making the entire material itself antimicrobial. This means that organisms do not metabolize and minimizes the risk of the development of resistance known as mutagenicity. Through extensive studies, this colorless, odorless, and non-leeching technology was found to be safe and effective against a broad spectrum of virus, fungi, bacteria, algae, and yeast.
MonoFoil® Technology is a bio-static antimicrobial additive that is built into the product providing elemental antimicrobial protection both inside the product and at the surface. This protection will not wash off or wear away, giving it permanent antimicrobial product surface protection for the useful life of the product.
