Aegis® Microbe Shield Antimicrobial Spray

Kasteel is the Exclusive Northern Agent for AEGIS® Microbe Shield

Kasteel is proud to be partnered with Microbe Defence™ to exclusively utilize Aegis® Microbe Shield, a revolutionary defence changing the battle on harmful microbes. Aegis®’s active ingredient is composed of positively – charged molecules shaped like a layer of swords; this coating actively prevents and controls the development and transfer of Bacteria, Viruses, Mould, Fungus, Yeast and Algae 24/7 once applied and bonded to a surface or textile. Treated surfaces become inhospitable for microbial activity.

The technology is simple; Aegis® is a long-chain polymer comprised of saline, nitrogen, oxygen, carbon, and once applied will remain on the surface for one to three years.

Microbe Defence Protected Surface

  1. Creates an invisible physical barrier to destroy microbes.
  2. Punctures the cell membrane.
  3. Provides an active physical deterrent to odour causing micro organisms.
  4. Contains no toxic chemicals or poisons, and is non-leaching.
  5. Delivers ongoing protection for up to 3 years on hard surfaces; or the lifetime of woven and porous materials.
  6. Reduces active microbial growth and use of harmful chemicals.

How Does Aegis® Work

Aegis® modifies treated surfaces by creating an inhospitable environment for microbes including bacteria, fungi, and mould.

Under a microscope, a surface that has been treated with Aegis® would look like it was covered in thousands of tiny swords. Microbes cannot live on surfaces protected by Aegis® because the positive nitrogen centre of the Aegis® spike attracts microbes, and the long carbon chain punctures the cell membrane destroying the microbe on contact. The combination of stabbing and electrocution allows the technology to be fully effective as long as the surface remains intact.

Why Aegis® is Different?

Conventional products penetrate living cells and kill by way of poisoning the organism or disrupting a vital life process. They are designed to act and dissipate quickly.

Most commercial antimicrobials do an adequate job of killing bacteria and fungi, although most have a limited range of effectiveness.

Microbe defence provides an effective initial microbial kill and unlike the conventional methods, it continues to provide a long-term control of microbial growth on treated surfaces.

Simply stated microbe defence provides an added layer of bio-security.
