New Jersey Nets Shoot Down Staph with High-Tech Defense
Date:9/12/2007

Team Facilities Treated with the Antimicrobial Protection of the

SportsAide(R) System from SportCoatings(TM)

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J., Sept. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- The New Jersey Nets are the next team in the NBA scoring with the high-tech SportsAide(R) treatment to help protect their team facilities from antimicrobial contamination.

SportsAide is part of the Sports Antimicrobial System(R) (SAS), a powerful family of treatments that inhibit and minimize microbial contamination on all sports facilities, surfaces, and textiles. SAS is made up of SportsAide, TurfAide(TM), FabricAide(TM) and additional maintenance products.

"With SportsAide in our athletic facilities we are being proactive against the spread of potentially harmful bacteria. We are excited to apply this treatment and are eager to enjoy facilities risk-free from microbial contagion," says Ed Stefanski, New Jersey Nets General Manager.

The Nets join the Milwaukee Bucks, Miami Heat, and Washington Wizards in the growing roster of NBA teams protected by SportsAide. In the NFL the Cleveland Browns, Minnesota Vikings, Washington Redskins and Detroit Lions have adopted SAS, along with the Atlanta Thrashers from the NHL. Countless Universities and high schools nationwide have also sought the SAS technology to protect their facilities, equipment and fields of play.

"The need for proactive technologies like SAS has become a universal requirement across sports at all levels. We are thrilled to add the New Jersey Nets into the robust roster protected by the SportsAide system," said Craig Andrews, CEO of SportCoatings.

SAS is powered by the AEGIS Microbe Shield(R) technology, which has been safely used in consumer goods and medical applications for more than 30 years. Registered with the EPA, it imparts an invisible layer of antimicrobial protection that will not leach any chemicals or heavy metals into the environment and will not rub off onto a player's skin. SportCoatings is the first and only to bring this unique antimicrobial to the athletic industry.

Applied by electrostatic spray, the AEGIS Microbe Shield technology creates a fatal attraction for microbes. On a microscopic level, the solution bonds to the surface and creates a matrix of positively charged sword-shaped molecules. Since single celled microorganisms have a negatively charged cell membrane, the microbes are attracted into the antimicrobial where they are speared and electrocuted.
