How do I apply the product?

MicroClean provides a complete solution so our Technician will apply the coating, utilising electrostatic spraying technology to optimise coverage.

How often does MicroClean need to be reapplied?
Reapplication periods will be determined by our Technician based on your specific situation. Typical reapplication periods are between one to four months. High wear areas in critical applications will normally be at the lower end of the range whilst periods for low wear areas in non-critical situations may be extended.

How long until I can access a treated area?
You can re-access the area as soon as the application has dried (approx 15 minutes). 

How does electrostatic spraying compare to misting or fogging?
MicroClean's electrostatic spraying system delivers electrostatically charged droplets that are actively attracted to surfaces, including the exposed back sides and crevices of surfaces, providing an even coating regardless of the direction of spray for complete wrap-around coverage. Misters and fogging systems deliver very small droplets but they only passively deposit on surfaces based on the direction of spray and the effect of gravity.

Does MicroClean's solution leach chemicals into the environment?
No. Conventional antimicrobials and anti-bacterials must leach off the treated surface to be effective. This leaching process can release toxic chemicals whereas MicroClean's solution has no such release. MicroClean's product bonds directly to the surface creating a non-leaching antimicrobial barrier that can only be removed through abrasion.

Does using MicroClean increase the risk that microbes will genetically adapt or mutate?

No. MicroClean physically kills microorganisms. It will not cause mutation of viruses to occur due to the physical nature of the killing process.

Does MicroClean adversely affect skin?
No. Since the antimicrobial is permanently bound to the surfaces it protects it does not leach to the skin. 

How long does MicroClean last on the surface?

Since the cured antimicrobial is nonvolatile, insoluble, and non-leaching, the treatment can last for the life of the treated surface. However, this depends on a number of factors. Abrasion and the use of abrasive or caustic (pH>10.5) cleaners will reduce effective life as will inadequate surface preparation. If the surface is dirty or unstable when treated, a portion of the antimicrobial will likely be removed when the dirt or surface is disturbed.
