Problems with Non-Residual Disinfectants
Conventional non-residual disinfectants have a self-limiting ability to combat the Coronavirus. They can only destroy pathogens during the initial wet contact time and are only effective when the proper dilution rate, method and contact time is carefully followed. So, their major functional limitation is that they can only kill pathogens only during the initial application process and it is inevitable that the surfaces will become contaminated again when next touched by a person carrying and spreading infectious pathogenic organisms.
So, in order to kill and eradicate a dangerous ‘Novel Virus’, an equally ‘Novel Response’ is required. A response that can destroy this virus and stop it in its tracks.
|100% Reactionary||100% Preventative|
|Lasts for minutes – no residual lasting effects||Long lasting residual effects that inhibits pathogens and work all day|
|Uses poisons to kill and can lead to germ resistances||Mechanical kill which DOESN’T allow for resistances|
|Possible insufficient dwell time to kill||Eliminates errors in application and dwell time|
|No protection after treatment||Provides constant 24/7 protection|
The Big Red Response – BR Shield
Big Red addresses the significant deficiency with conventional disinfectants and the associated risk and mitigates it completely by using a new generation of disinfectant that has a residual ability to kill pathogens both immediately on contact and then onwards for a period of at least 180 days. This innovative disinfectant is called BRShield.
BRShield 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.
When BRShield is applied to surfaces it forms a highly residual protective layer that can penetrate the outer membranes of pathogens like SARS-CoV-2 and COVID-19 and can reliably destroy them, immediately upon contact for a period of at least six months following the initial treatment.
BRShield creates a microscopic bed of electrostatically charged spikes that first pulls the pathogen towards it and then punctures the outer membrane of any contagious microorganism coming into contact with that surface, whether they arrive by airborne deposition or after being touched by any person carrying an infectious disease.
BRShield is effective for six months and is proven to be effective against all known pathogenic organisms. Furthermore, it can be easily applied to both hard and soft surfaces simply by spraying it on and letting it dry. Surfaces treated in this way continue to destroy pathogenic organisms for prolonged periods of, thereby ensuring all such treated surfaces remain completely non-infectious between periodic cleanings 24/7/365. Furthermore, BRShield is the only anti-pathogenic protection system in Singapore to guarantee the efficacy of the treatment for six months on all treated surfaces, or your money back.
Antimicrobial Surface Coating Kills Coronavirus for 90 days: US Study
On May 16th, 2020 Singapore’s Straits Times reported that a study recently published in the USA has confirmed and validated what Big Red already knew! That ‘BR Shield’ effectively destroys the Corona 19 virus on contact and continues to provide ongoing, long lasting killing power for over 90 days!
The paper by researchers at the University of Arizona (UA), which has not yet been peer-reviewed, found that the amount of virus on coated surfaces reduced by 90 per cent in 10 minutes and by 99.9 per cent in two hours, suggesting the treatment as a new line of defence against the COVID-19 virus.
Prof. Charles Gerba, a microbiologist at UA who was the study’s senior author, told AFP the technology was “the next advancement in infection control”. The paper went on to say “A specially formulated antimicrobial coating can keep surfaces clear of a human coronavirus for up to 90 days with just one application.”
Prof. Gerba explained that the coating works by “denaturing the virus’ proteins, effectively twisting them out of shape and attacking its protective layer of fat rendering it incapable of further replication or disease transmission.”
Finally, Prof. Gerba added: “I think it’s mostly important for high-use surfaces like subways and buses because you could disinfect them but then the next people that come in there will re-contaminate the surfaces.”
Here in Singapore, Big Red uses a product, known as ‘BRShield’ as one of the two cornerstones of the ‘COVID-19 Eradication Programme’. Dr Martin Blake, Chief Technical Advisor to Big Red confirmed that “Big Red is so confident that their product, ‘BR Shield’ actually provides an unparalleled 180 days of ongoing disinfection” Dr Blake added, “Big Red also provides a full 180-day money-back guarantee should that efficacy ever be proven otherwise.”
