Nanoshield’s New Surface Protection
The film’s active copper element disrupts the protective proteins around bacteria and viruses through direct contact.
Nanoshield protects surfaces between cleaning, with its self-disinfecting technology that destroys viruses and bacteria for up to 12 months. Nanoshield’s self-sanitizing properties are the result of nano-level embedded nontoxic copper particles in films, wipes and other applications.
Nanoshield is offered in a customizable PET or PVC film, which contains a substrate with a resin layer and an active copper element. The film can be applied to door handles, elevator buttons, concierge counters, water fountains and other areas to decrease the spread of viruses and bacteria on such high-touch surfaces.
The nano-copper technology in Nanoshield kills germs in three ways: the copper attaches to bacteria and viruses and alters their outside structure; it forms a chemical substance called Reactive Oxygen Species, which destroys the proteins and nucleic acids in bacteria and viruses; and it disrupts the protective proteins around bacteria and viruses through direct contact.
