One of our core technologies:
The S.P.A.D.A.® bionanotechnology allows long-term antimicrobial protection on a variety of surfaces. When the S.P.A.D.A.® molecules are applied to any surface, they attach to it with strong bonds and form a durable and protective layer against microbes. This layer withstands long periods of time and is typically only removed through abrasion.
Because S.P.A.D.A.® physically destroys microbes and does not contain toxic elements or chemicals to which the microorganisms could adapt, it offers durable and ecologic antimicrobial protection.
HOW S.P.A.D.A.® BIONANOTECHNOLOGY WORKS
The S.P.A.D.A.® layer, which covers the surfaces at a microscopic level, is formed by individual molecules polymerizing or joining together. We call these molecules nano-swords because of the way they work in order to destroy microbes.
1. THE BASE ADHERES
The base of the molecule adheres strongly to other S.P.A.D.A.® molecules and to the molecules of any surface (plastics, metals, textiles, wood, glass, wool, etc.).
2. THE CENTER IS ELECTRICALLY CHARGED
This way it always keeps the “sword” in a vertical position.
3. THE POINT PIERCES MICROBES
It acts like the point of a sword: it pierces the cellular membrane/wall and it destroys microorganisms.
The S.P.A.D.A.® bionanotechnology is the base for effective, safe and long-term ecological antimicrobials.
