How GS Works, What Makes GS Different and Unique
Background: In 2007 scientists at Goldshield invented a complex, yet brillant chemistry, that is water-stable, forms a strong chemical bond (covalent bond) to surfaces and textiles, will not leach or become fugitive, and has a unique compound that penetrates surfaces providing better coverage and thus better efficacy performance. They were awarded patent protection for this next generation of antimicrobial technology.
Here’s How Goldshield's Core Technology Works
Through a variety of domestic and international regulatory testing protocols Goldshield products have been shown to possess very unique characteristics:
Part 1 & 1A: Goldshiel 5 & 75
Possess a surface penetrating compound that provides better coverage and thus better efficacy, 1A, there is the “silane base.” This is the compound that anchors and triggers the covalent bonding functionality which allows Goldshield 5 and 75 to adhere to surfaces and textiles and remain durable for up to 90 days. Goldshield actually becomes part of the surface to which it is applied.
Part 2: is the “nitrogen” molecule, which is positively charged (+). Key: many microbes are negatively charged; therefore, as in nature, the nitrogen molecules in Goldshield “attract” the negatively charged microbes toward them until contact.
Part 3: is a long carbon chain that releases an ionic charge that disrupts the microbe’s cell membrane upon contact mechanically inactivating the microbe . At the same time, the quaternary compound component of Goldshield denatures the microbe’s proteins . . . chemically.
