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

- Environmentally harmful
- Highly toxic and allergic
- No avoidance of multi-resistances
- Large quantities consumed over time
- High maintenance costs

SILVER / COPPER

- Silver and copper ions can be harmful to humans and animals
- Blocked or reduced effect in sulfur or halide containing environment
- Need for sufficient metal ion depot
- Decrease in effect over time
- Slow effect due to metal ion release from its metallic depot
- Known resistances against silver ions

ANTIBIOTICS

- Training of multi-resistances
- Limited duration of action
- Not applicable for water and surface disinfection

UV LIGHT

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