• Two active ingredients (Quats): Benzalkonium chloride and 3-Trimethoxysilyl propyldimethyl octadecylammonium chloride (3-Tri).
• The solution consists of 99% purified water with ~ 1% active ingredients. The proprietary blend is scientifically formulated such that the active “Quat” molecules are highly soluble and stable in water. This allows for a very long shelf-life without the need for on-site mixing. The benzalkonium chloride component provides the “instant kill” effect while in the wet state.
• The 3-Tri component of FIRSTDEFENCEZOONO® products, when applied to surfaces, transform from a water-soluble monomeric species to an insoluble, macro-
molecular antimicrobial film. This film is stable and durable.
• Disables pathogens via “lysis” – it mechanically disrupts the cell membrane (or viral envelope) – causing degradation and death. Two forces cause this interruption: a quaternized Nitrogen acts as an electrocuting charge and an 18 carbon length chain acts as a “sword” or puncturing agent.
