EcoActive Surfaces Introduces OxiTitan VLR: New Light Powered Antimicrobial Coating Effective Against Viruses and Bacteria Indoors
Date:8/27/2009

Announcing an exciting innovation in antimicrobial coatings: OxiTitan VLR. The advanced transparent nanoparticle mineral coating kills viruses and bacteria with the power of light. Durable and easily applied to existing interior surfaces and textiles, OxiTitan VLR is a broad spectrum antimicrobial, effective indoors, utilizing normal incandescent or flourescent lighting. The continuously active photocatalyst traps and oxidizes microbes nonstop, day after day, week after week.

Pompano Beach, FL (PRWEB) August 27, 2009 -- EcoActive Surfaces, Inc. announces commercial release of their new advanced science, broad spectrum antimicrobial coating OxiTitan VLR .(http://www.oxititan.com). Utilizing the energy of interior light, the transparent nanoparticle coating is a continuously acting photocatalyst, killing bacteria and viruses on treated surfaces by electro-statically trapping and oxidizing the microbes. The powerful microbial reduction is nonstop, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, year after year.

"The breakthrough innovation of our OxiTitan VLR formula is its ability to be an active antimicrobial under interior light conditions. Other photocatalytic oxidizers require UV light, making them effective only on exterior surfaces. Germs naturally die when exposed to sun or UV light , but germs flourish on contaminated interior surfaces," states company President Stewart Averett.

This functional clear-coat is comprised of nanoparticle zinc and titanium dioxide, both common and benign minerals, widely used in sunscreens. Using advanced nanotechnology, they are carefully engineered to form a highly effective antimicrobial, activated with only interior light. OxiTitan VLR does not contain any chemicals or toxic agents, making it safe for people, pets and the environment.

EcoActive Surfaces has extensively tested its OxiTitan products for efficacy and safety.
Independent lab test results show dramatic kill rates of the deadly and drug resistant MRSA, VRE, Bacillus, and C. difficile bacteria and a wide array of viruses including influenza. OxiTitan VLR is a broad spectrum germ killer, meaning it will oxidize and decompose any microbe, but will not promote resistant strains of virus or bacteria.

OxiTitan VLR is designed to be used as an adjunct to hand hygiene and routine surface disinfection. It is a vital component in the battle to reduce cross-contamination, HAI's (Healthcare Acquired Infections) and the public spread of infection. Mr. Averett offers this analogy, "Think of hand hygiene and routine disinfection as a 'snap shot', sanitized for a moment in time. The persistent antimicrobial activity of OxiTitan VLR is like a 'movie', continuously killing germs, over time".

OxiTitan VLR is applicable to most surfaces and can benefit a variety of environments, from healthcare facilities, community buildings, grocery stores, schools and public venues, to businesses and homes.
                                                            
Additional benefits include odor removal and the breakdown of fungi, mold and Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC's) that come into contact with the treated surface. While the advanced materials science of OxiTitan VLR is complex, the application is by simple, no-mix spray-on to existing surfaces and textiles, providing transparent antimicrobial protection. Due to its high bonding strength, OxiTitan VLR is very durable and has a long and continuously active service life.
    
EcoActive Surfaces has already scaled up production to meet the growing demand for their proprietary OxiTitan VLR antimicrobial coating.
