Every day we come into contact with germs including pathogenic bacteria and viruses. Practically everything we touch is certain to have germs on it, some harmless and some definitely not. Pathogenic bacteria, such as E.coli, Staph and certain moulds, can cause severe illness and are easily contracted from surfaces that aren’t adequately cleaned and disinfected on a regular basis.
More notable these days are highly contagious and virulent pathogenic viruses such as COVID-19 which has an extremely high propensity to spread to large numbers of people via contaminated surfaces and re-infect large numbers of other people.

Released when an infected person talks, coughs or sneezes
Any physical contact with an infected person
Touching the surface that has been contaminated by an infected person
Whilst traditional disinfection methods have their place, they also have their significant limitations, as they only provide a ‘one off’ very short-lived intervention with little to no residual action at all. This leaves the surface entirely vulnerable to re-infection almost immediately after treatment.
Not so with ‘BR Shield Anti-Microbial Protection’! A single application of this highly efficient disinfection agent not only provides an almost instantaneous 99.99% reduction in pathogens, but it also goes on doing so 24/7/365 for over 180 days and routine cleaning only enhances its efficacy and longevity. This in turn, provides complete safety and peace of mind.
Not all antimicrobial coatings are created equal. It’s important to understand the basic chemical, physical, and biological properties of an antimicrobial so the best choice can be made. Because of its unique mode of action and inability to migrate from a treated surface, our technology is the obvious choice to minimize environmental contamination and the development of resistant organisms. Our products are safe for the environment, humans, and pets. They are non-dissipating, non-leaching, non-migrating from the applied substrate and cannot be absorbed by micro-organisms or by humans.
BR Shield is a durable long-lasting chemically bonded residual antimicrobial coating containing a quaternary based organo-silane compound. This scientifically proven chemical formula is unique in that it bonds chemically at the molecular level onto any surface to which it is applied.
Once chemically bonded, the surface coating cannot be easily removed after routine cleaning and housekeeping procedures including the regular use of alcohol or alkaline based detergents.
Therefore, once bonded to the treated surface, this semi-permanent antimicrobial surface coating will provide consistent, residual protection against 99% of all known pathogens and deliver a 99.99% or 4 log reductions in their numbers 24/7 for min of 180 days surface antimicrobial protection.
BR Shield is a reactive saline quaternary ammonium compound, which provides permanent antiviral and antimicrobial coatings to any surface it is applied to. This eliminates the risk of cross contamination and the subsequent spread of pathogenic organisms from one person to another.
Therefore, this precludes the transfer of the COVID-19 virus via its most common route of transmission and subsequent infection, from one person to another via a contaminated surface.
BR Shield will persistently & continously protect surfaces for a minimum period of 180 days. It is proven to be effective against all known pathogenic organisms. It can be easily applied to both hard and soft surfaces. Treated surfaces continue to destroy pathogenic organisms for prolonged periods, ensuring all such treated surfaces remain completely non-infectious between periodic cleanings.
An antimicrobial coating is a durable, long-lasting surface treatment that chemically bonds to any surface to which it has been applied. The coating endows that surface with semi-permanent disinfection properties that can prevail for weeks, months or even years. This surface destroys all types of microorganisms that come into contact with it, including yeasts, fungi, protozoans, bacteria and viruses.
Furthermore, because of the way the non-leaching antimicrobial coating works, it is not possible for microorganisms to build up any resistance to it, so it is a highly effective way to secure ongoing protection against the risk of cross contamination, infection and disease.
