FAQ

What is NX-ON's Antimicrobial Technology?

The Nx-ON Antimicrobial Technology is a stable aqueous solution of patented technology which produces a durable microbiostatic agent coating on a broad range of textiles and many other surfaces. The chemistry of the Nx-ON antimicrobial is unique. A conventional quaternary ammonium salt (organo) is chemically spliced to a silane molecule, resulting in a highly active molecule (3-trimethoxsilylpropyldimethyloctadecyl ammonium chloride) that has both tenacious bonding capabilities as well as excellent antimicrobial properties.

Is the Nx-ON system safe for children?

Once dry and bonded to the surface the Nx-ON antimicrobial is completely non-toxic to children or adults. It is recommended to treat toys, cribs, and other area's your child may play or spend time. Top

Why is there a need for antimicrobials?

Bacteria, viruses, mold, algae, mildew and yeast may cause problems if sharing an environment with humans. Standard cleaning and sanitizing protocols are often ineffective in controlling the growth of these microorganisms. There are two problems that are often cause by common cleaning chemicals: first is the adaptive nature of microorganisms to chemical attack(Mutation in to "superbugs"). These microbes are becoming increasingly more difficult to destroy. Secondaly, chemical residues and dead microbes become a food source for new microbes to feed upon and grow exponentially. Top

How does the Nx-ON antimicrobial protection work?

Nx-ON's molecule has molecular spikes that are long carbon chains and are large enough to pierce the cell walls of various microbes. Being only about one thousandth the diameter of a human hair, they are too small to harm large cells in mammals. These chains of atoms carry a strong positive charge that attracts negatively charged bacteria. Nx-ON's antimicrobial has been found in the manufacturers independent testing to be effective against a wide array of microbes, including Staphylococcus aureus, E. coli, various Salmonella strains, black mold, athlete's foot, skin infections, and others(Independent testresults have not been approved or tested by the EPA).

What benefit do I get from using the Nx-ON system?

You will gain control of your environment by reducing contamination and surface damage caused by microbes. Microbial growth can be activated by high moisture or temperature elevations. Standard cleaning and sanitizing protocols are often ineffective in controlling the growth of these microorganisms. Also the chemical residue and dead microbes left behind from cleaning and sanitizing products become a food source for new microbes to feed upon and grow exponentially.

Also the Nx-ON antimicrobial is EPA registered. Nx-ON's antimicrobial won't wash off and is completely non-toxic. Meaning it is even safe to apply to childrens toys. Top
