Introducing PreventX 24/7™

PreventX 24/7™ is an all surface protection barrier that contains an EPA registered antimicrobial that destroys colony forming units of bacteria, viruses, mold/mildew and more, providing upwards of 30 days of active protection for your workplace.


Why is the use of Static Agents Important?

  • Cidals (disinfectants) work while wet, but once the product dries there is no further protection and the treated surface is ready for re-contamination.
  • Whether you disinfect once, twice or ten times daily there will be periods of time where your surfaces are not protected.
  • Statics (PreventX 24/7™) provide a solution for you since they work continuously to reduce contamination of surfaces between cleanings.
  • PreventX 24/7™ will continue to protect your surfaces against germs, mold, and mildew for 30 to 90 days depending on surface use.
  • Electrostatics sprayers, misting sprayers and standard spray applicators can be used to apply PreventX 24/7™


How Does a Static Agent Work?

  • When applied to a surface, a barrier of carbon spikes adhere to the surface attracting organisms to the barrier’s positive charge.
  • When bacteria come in contact with the barrier, they are physically punctured and quickly die.
  • Independent studies have shown the active ingredients in PreventX 24/7™ to be effective against many organisms including, enveloped and non-enveloped viruses.
  • Technology is non-toxic, non-flammable, non leaching, environmentally friendly and safe.
  • 35 years of proven technology.


A New Era for Antimicrobials – EPA Update 1

  • The EPA recognizes that it is not feasible to clean and disinfect surfaces at a frequency required to effectively reduce potential transmission.(1)
  • EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler said, “While traditional disinfectants only kill viruses and bacteria that are on the surface at the time they are used, surfaces treated with residual antimicrobial products kill pathogens that come into contact with the surface days, weeks, or years after the product is applied.”(2)
  • Administrator Wheeler further commented, “EPA is providing an expedited path for our nation’s manufacturers and innovators to get cutting-edge, long-lasting disinfecting products into the marketplace as safely and quickly as possible. As we continue to re-open our schools, workplaces, and other public spaces, it is important Americans have as many tools as possible to slow the spread of COVID-19.”
  • The EPA has posted initial findings which have confirmed that a product with a 0.84% active ingredient passed the initial screening against an enveloped virus of Log-3 reduction (99.9%) in 2 hours.(1)
  • The PreventX 24/7™ formulation (0.84% active ingredient) provides long-lasting surface antimicrobial protection backed by 30+ years of independent studies dating back to the 1980’s when DOW patents on silane-quats were initially issued. The results posted by the EPA continue to align with the history of white papers done on the formulation used to build PreventX 24/7™.
  • DOW studies have confirmed efficacy against several microorganisms identified on the pyramid above. Specifically, the study New Antimicrobial Treatment for Carpet Applications demonstrated the effectiveness of the formulation used to build PreventX 24/7™ against mycobacterium tuberculosis and mycobacterium smegmatis along with several other microorganisms. JennsCo will provide this study upon request.

History and Advantages of PreventX 24/7™

In the early ’70s, Dow Corning (today the world’s largest mfg. of silane chemistries) added silane to quaternary ammonium compounds (quats) in an effort to improve adhesion on a variety of surfaces. From this experimentation came multiple Dow Corning patents (1980’s) and the birth of a new class of durable antimicrobials effective against a wide range of microorganisms.

Dow synthesis is conducted in an end-user methanol carrier formulation that has a 30 plus year compliance rate with the US EPA regarding environmental, safety, and toxicity (DOW Corning AEM 5700 / 5772). To avoid Dow awarded patents, competitive water-based synthesis formulations appeared over the years that range in stability depending on the dilution process and/or the presence of stabilizers and additives. Please see the white paper on PreventX 24/7™ vs. Water-Based for an explanation as to why these products are considered inferior. Molecules in Water-Based products can stick to themselves, can fall out of solution, or can have reduced adherence to substrates.

Dow Corning’s AEM 5700 was eventually brought to market, by agreement, in Midland, MI (Dow’s home office location) under the name Aegis Microbe Shield. The market strategy was to inject the SIQUAT into articles, e.g., carpets, countertops, socks, sponges. The blender of PreventX 24/7™ was selected by Aegis (over 20 years ago) to blend and help formulate specific application processes. Today, even though the original Aegis company dissipated, the blender used to build PreventX 24/7™ has grandfathered rights to purchase Dow’s raw materials (AEM 5700 / 5772). The necessary raw materials, specialized generation equipment, and proprietary blending processes utilized for millions of dollars of white paper testing by DOW are currently used for building PreventX 24/7™. We feel this is a tremendous asset to our client base.

Also, a significant mention is our manufacturing capacity and availability of raw active ingredients. PreventX 24/7™(EPA Reg. No. 91116-1) is built within an EPA/FDA toll blending facility. We can currently produce more than one million gallons of PreventX 24/7™ monthly. We have rail car access and six in-house tanker trucks available for shipping. To our knowledge, no other company producing SIQUAT can match this.


AMAZING ATP TEST RESULTS UTILIZING

PREVENTX 24/7™ ANTIMICROBIAL COATING

Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) is present in all organic material and is the universal unit of energy used in all living cells.

ATP Monitoring is a rapid testing method used by food and beverage processors and medical facilities to quickly assess the cleanliness of a surface.

The ATP test  is a process of rapidly measuring actively growing microorganisms through detection of adenosine triphosphate or ATP.

An Outpatient Medical Facility underwent a 6-week* study with over 40 specific touch points treated ONE TIME with PreventX 24/7™ and others untreated.

  • The average 6-week ATP scores of untreated surfaces was 170.
  • The average 6-week ATP scores of PreventX 24/7™ treated surfaces was 29.
  • This represents an amazing ATP score reduction (reduced bacteria load) of 83%.

In Summary, One single treatment of PreventX 24/7™ was capable of potentially reducing the bacteria load of this facility nearly 600%!
