A BREAK-THROUGH
ANTIMICROBIAL TECHNOLOGY

Microorganism can be very harmful to health of people and animals in planktonic and biofilm occurrence. Multi-resistance of more and more microorganisms against antibiotics and many biocides gives need to new antimicrobial solutions. Microbes can destroy nearly every material by biocorrosion (estimated 20 % of corrosion damage through biocorrosion). Microorganisms interfere with water based production processes, resulting in increasing maintenance costs and use of biocides.
AGXX® is a highly efficient catalytically driven antimicrobial system based on redox reactions and micro-electric field effects. AGXX®enhanced materials effectively avoid biofilm formation and kill harmful bacteria, viruses and fungi, free of pharmaceuticals and noxious biocides!
Broadband antimicrobial effect
Environmentally friendly
Prevention of biofilm formation
No resistances possible
No external energy source required

SUCCESSFULLY TESTED ON INTERNATIONAL SPACE STATION & READY FOR MARS 500 MISSION TESTS

DISADVANTAGES OF
CONVENTIONAL TECHNOLOGIES

CLASSICAL BIOCIDES

- Formation of multi-resistances
- Consumption of large quantities
- Costly analysis and maintenance necessary
- Highly toxic, allergic
- Environmental footprint
- Specific storage needs and safety requirements

SILVER / OTHER METAL IONS

- Limited to no effect in sulfur or halide environment
- Increasing regulatory pressure
- Negative side-effects, toxicity, resistances
- Trade-off between speed and duration

ANTIBIOTICS

- Formation of multi-resistances
- Limited duration per doses
- Medical only

UV LIGHT

- Short range in water
- Maintenance intensive, i.e. annual replacement
- High energy consumption
- Safety requirements
