There is no denying that COVID-19 has changed the way you live and work. You may have done a number of new things in the last few months, such as attempting to open a door with your foot, meticulously making your way to the train to avoid coming into contact with a handle, and scrubbing your office desk every morning.
COVID-19 on Surfaces
Scientists are certain that the Novel coronavirus can survive on surfaces. How long will COVID-19 survive on them? The simple response is nobody knows. A recent study discovered that the Coronavirus could linger on copper surfaces for about 3 hours, and on stainless steel and plastic surfaces for more than three days.
Despite the stringent hygiene regulations which have been put in place, it is virtually implausible to clean surfaces regularly, and there is no assurance that the cleaned surface will not be contaminated again.
Thus, an ideal remedy is for the exposed surface to repulse the viral elements – enabling it to clean itself by eliminating the viral elements rapidly and removing the chances of transmission of the virus to others.
BR Shield Antimicrobial Coating
Because COVID-19 can remain viable on non-sterilized surfaces, it’s critical to clean surfaces with elevated contamination potential in high touch areas such as handles, lift buttons, and escalator handrails.
Nevertheless, the common disinfectant is generally based on materials such as ethanol or bleach, both of which offer minimal protection until the subsequent contact with the Coronavirus. To solve this problem, Big Red has developed its BR Shield antivirus and antimicrobial surface coatings.
The BR Shield modifies the surfaces, providing treated surfaces with both immediate disinfection and durable, long term antimicrobial protection which can inactivate viruses, kill and inhibit the proliferation of pathogenic bacteria, mold that can survive and multiply on untreated surfaces.
BR Shield has a long term protection capability and comprises safe particles. It can protect your surfaces with antiviral coating for more than six months. Numerous tests have shown that surface treated with BR Shield inhibits the growth of microorganisms.
Applying BR Shield protection is easy, and you can use it on soft and hard surfaces. A surface treated with BR Shield will continue to make the surface environment inhospitable for extended periods.
