Protect 90™ antimicrobial protection program makes surfaces easier to clean and protects them for extended periods of time. The product is neither a disinfectant nor a sanitizer. Disinfectants kill microbes by poisoning them and need to be wet on a surface to do the job. The surface is at risk until the next disinfection. Protect 90™ steps up and delivers enduring surface protection, between disinfection.
Protect 90™ does not replace your current cleaning and disinfection protocols. Rather, it complements them. It allows you to achieve a new, never before attained level of clean. Just because a surface looks clean, does not mean that it is microbe free. We can see when dirt and grime is removed by cleaning. We can’t see whether microbes have actually been removed or are happily living in place. You can know the surface is protected from microbial growth when you see the Protect 90™ application sticker. Trust it.
Protect 90™ contains an active ingredient registered with Health Canada. The registration is:
PCP Reg. No. 15133 is approved for use as a material preservative [i.e., to impart durable, broad-spectrum, antimicrobial protection to existing non-food contact building surfaces (porous or non-porous) to control and/or prevent microbial growth].
Simple, sustainable and durable, the active ingredient in Protect 90™ is one of the most effective and universally recognized antimicrobials used in surface protection. Backed by more than 40 years of testing, it has a history of safe use and is a durable and effective way to control a wide range of microbes on a treated surface, including gram-negative and positive bacteria, fungi, algae, mold, mildew and odour.
The active ingredient in Protect 90™ has been applied to high traffic surfaces in a wide array of environments to provide an additional level of antimicrobial surface protection. This permanent nanoscopic shield will remain full strength 24/7 to protect the surface itself. Suggested applications include but are not limited to upholstery, doorknobs, shared technology, elevators, handrails, and other high-touch surfaces subject to heavy use and wear and tear.
This surface protection technology is used by public transportation agencies like Metrolinx, to inhibit the growth of odor and stain-causing bacteria on their buses and trains.
The active ingredient in the product forms a colourless, odourless, positively charged polymer that molecularly bonds to the treated surface. You could think of it as a layer of electrically charged swords. When a microorganism comes in contact with the treated surface, the C-18 molecular sword punctures the cell membrane and the electrical charge shocks the cell. Since nothing is transferred to the now dead cell, the antimicrobial doesn’t lose strength and the sword is ready for the next cell to contact it.
Protect 90™ protects surfaces effectively against a broad spectrum of microorganisms including bacteria, mold and mildew. It is not designed to protect users or others from disease-causing microorganisms and should not replace normal cleaning practices.
The active ingredients in Protect 90™ are registered with Health Canada, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in the United States, and with the Biocidal Products Registration (BPR) in Europe for their specific use in the application in which they are used. The technologies have a long history of safe use in consumer, commercial, and healthcare product applications around the world. Risk assessments by independent scientists, scientific bodies and governmental agencies (including EPA, FDA and regulatory authorities in Europe and Canada) have consistently reconfirmed the safety of our antimicrobial surface protection additives at the levels approved for use in consumer, commercial and healthcare products. The size and specific biological systems of microorganisms make them susceptible to antimicrobial agents at levels of exposure that are not harmful to humans.
Longevity will vary depending on whether the treated surface is highly used or not. For example, heavy foot traffic on a concrete or tile floor could remove the antimicrobial treated surface. For most applications we tend to recommend reapplication ever 90 days or so.
People depend on many transportation services on a daily basis. Commuters and operators expect a clean environment from the transportation industry. Protect 90™ provides a high level of clean in addition to the required cleaning protocols. The antimicrobial treatment offers protection against bacteria on high touch surfaces in transportation vehicles of all forms.
Health and fitness activities are highly valued and so is a clean environment in which to participate in these activities. Gyms and fitness centres are required to maintain hygiene protocols. Protect 90™ specifically targets bacteria that can develop in such facilities. The treatment, when combined with regular cleaning, helps achieve a higher level of clean by preventing microbial growth.
Emergency Services provide critical care to our community and follow strict hygiene guidelines. Applying Protect 90™, in combination with disinfection and sanitization methods, reduces the growth of microbes. Protect 90™ prevents the growth of bacteria at a time when people utilizing these services and the service workers need it most.
Food services centres have high traffic volumes throughout each day. Customers and employees need protection against bacteria from many surfaces within their location. Customers want to feel safe and confident in the cleanliness of the places where they dine or purchase food. Applying Protect 90™ on the high touch surfaces provides a layer of protection from antimicrobial growth.
Offices are made up of many communal spaces with high traffic areas. Employees work in their desk areas or cubicles as well as share areas such as boardrooms and lunchrooms. These are all spaces that can benefit from Protect 90™ providing a deeper level of clean. Employers want to ensure the safety of their workforce, clients, customers and visitors against bacteria.
Retail stores experience high levels of customer traffic. Customers and retail employees need protection against bacteria from many surfaces within their location. Customers want to feel safe and confident in the cleanliness of the places where they shop. Applying Protect 90™ on the high touch surfaces provides a layer of protection from the growth of microbes.
Cleanliness is a critical factor in the healthcare sector. Patients expect a high level of clean in the facility they frequent. Healthcare facilities adhere to a strict cleaning protocol and when combined with Protect 90™, they can provide an extra layer of protection from microbial growth.
High rise condo buildings have many common areas shared by numerous tenants. Protect 90™ offers an extra level of protection against bacteria in these high traffic areas. When combined with regular cleaning, tenants, building owners and condo owners can be assured these areas are protected against microbial growth.
Our homes should be a place of comfort and safety. Applying Protect 90™ in high touch surface areas will provide homeowners confidence that their family members, friends and visitors are protected against bacteria. When combined with regular cleaning, Protect 90™ provides an extra level of clean preventing microbial growth.
Retirement Homes need to protect their residents, staff and visitors. Many people are coming and going throughout each day and are all exposed to high traffic areas. Protect 90™ provides an extra level of clean preventing the growth of bacteria.
Our children are the most precious people in our lives. Daycare centres and educational facilities are entrusted with the care of our children. Treating high touch surface areas with Protect 90™ allows parents to feel confident in the cleanliness of the facility. It also provides the same reassurance to staff and visitors too. The antimicrobial surface protectant prevents the growth of bacteria and further enhances the stringent cleaning protocols of each location.
Protect 90™ protects the high touch surfaces in all entertainment venues, including both hard and soft surfaces, again bacteria. It helps customers feel confident in the extra level of clean achieved by the treatment so they can enjoy their concert, movie or social event.
