How does it work?
In short, antimicrobials are added to the product at the time of manufacture. These silver ions then concentrate on the surface of the product and are then available to act against any contaminating bacteria. The silver ions bind with the bacteria and damage their cells in a number of ways, disrupting their normal function, stopping them from reproducing and causing them to die.
Does it replace cleaning?
No. The additive is complementary to cleaning practices. The technology continues to work 24 hours a day in between the normal cleaning schedules thus reducing growth of the microbes preventing them from reaching potential dangerous levels.

As long as the products - the AntiBug® Coating will last for the normal life of the product under correct use.
