Think of AEGIS as a microscopic sword and a treated surface acting like a bed of nails or swords. AEGIS modifies treated surfaces, creating an inhospitable environment for microbes including bacteria, fungus and mold. In other words, microbes cannot survive on surfaces protected by our AEGIS solution.
The positive nitrogen center of the AEGIS sword attracts microbes to it and the long carbon chain punctures the cell membrane destroying the microbe on contact! This combination of stabbing and electrocution allows the technology to be fully effective as long as the surface remains intact.
