Biospada 500 (Si-Quat) Antimicrobial Protectant is effective against nearly all algae, bacteria, fungus, mildew, mold and other viruses. The molecule used in Biospada 500 has been effectively and safely used for over 40 years by hospitals, governments, and large manufacturers. One gallon treats approximately 40 pounds of dry clothing/textiles. Antimicrobial clothing provides an extra layer of protection against airborne microorganisims that could easily attach to fabric.
How long does the Biospada last?
Since the cured antimicrobial is nonvolatile, insoluble, and non-leaching, Biospada should last for the life of the treated surface.
What Fabrics can Biospada be applied to?
All fabric types including acrylics, cotton, elastanes, nylons, polyester and various blends. Wash durability tends to be better on synthetic blends as they lint less (shed fibers).
How does Biospada alter the other properties of the fabric?
Biospada adheres at the molecular level and forms an extremely thin film (typically 3 nanometers - a human hair is about 10,000 nanometers). This layer is so thin that it does not alter any of the physical properties such as appearance, color, hand, strength, etc.
How Eco-responsible is Biospada?
Biospada technology does not adversely affect the skin or environment - Since the antimicrobial is permanently bound to the surfaces it protects, it does not leach from the fabric to the skin or into the environment. Extensive toxicological testing shows the antimicrobial does not cross the skin barrier.
Biospada does NOT contain any heavy metals. Tin, arsenic, silver and copper are often used in other antimicrobials.
