Virus and Bacteria react with FN1 and FN2 in the same way as pollution particles. FN is 99.99% or 100% anti viral and antibacterial for all tested bacteria and viruses including Staphylococcus aureus. One of the best advantages over other sanitizing products is that FN also removes all the toxins produced by the bacteria as it eliminates them.
The control of micro-organisms such as bacteria, viruses, fungi, mold and mildew on surfaces has long been a matter of human life or death. While we can temporarily disinfect a surface with strong cleaners, especially with powerful oxidizers, the need for effective, durable anti microbial surfaces is an even higher priority today with the presence of multi drug resistant pathogens such as MRSA and C. difficile.
FN electrostatically traps and then eliminates all types of bacteria, viruses and fungal spores through the production of reactive oxygen species, especially hydroxyl radicals, one of the most powerful oxidizers of organics.
FN is effective as an active antibacterial by destroying the cell membrane and inducing oxidative DNA and protein damage of microbes. FN also acts as a bacteriostatic that inhibits bacterial growth through immobilization and also degrades all endotoxins resulting from bacteria death.
FN1 deactivates ALL dangerous microbes and restrains proliferation by damaging their components through radical oxidation. The spread of pathogens is also reduced due to the electrostatic binding at the surface. Independent lab tests show the photo-oxidative power of FN also kills dangerous spores such as Clostridium difficile and decomposes their toxins. Mold and mildew growth is inhibited by this same continuous photo-mineralization.
Light energized FN works constantly, does not wear out and does not require new material to be exposed in order to be effective, as with bound ammonium salts, copper and silver. Unlike ALL other surface antimicrobials, FN is not a diluted chemical poison (phenols and quaternaries), dangerous pesticide (Microban) or heavy metal (silver ions). FN astounding oxidizing power comes from light itself. FN has no toxic side effects or environmental hazards. Like nature’s photosynthesis, FN simply uses the power of light on a catalyst to safely do its job.
FN does not cause resistant strains of microbes because its killing mechanism is strictly oxidative, not enzymic or antibiotic. FN is safe in all environments. There are no dangers of allergies, skin irritations or other deleterious effects. FN is extremely durable and long lasting and the mineral catalyst is not lost or worn out. The high-surface-area nanocrystals bind so permanently that polishing or abrasion is necessary to remove FN1 from treated surfaces.
Constantly working 24 hours a day to create an antiseptic surface, FN works in conjunction with temporal routine cleaning and hand hygiene to help protect against the spread of illness and infection. The antimicrobial efficacy, human and environmental safety, cost efficiency, and ease of application makes FN products the best choice available in microbial reduction surface coatings.
