SportCoatings of Rochester Hills, MI provides SAS, a family of treatments that are designed to inhibit and minimize microbial contamination on all sport surfaces and textiles for extended periods, to a growing roster of sport teams nationally from the professional to high school level. SAS is composed of SportsAide, TurfAide(TM), and FabricAide(TM).

Virginia Tech, whom applied all SAS technologies to their synthetic turf fields, sports medicine training room, locker rooms, whirlpools and wrestling rooms one year ago, is further applying SportsAide treatment to their football weight room, Olympic sport weight room, and cardio room for optimal protection against potentially harmful bacteria.

"As the first major university to apply SAS to our facilities, Virginia Tech has been so pleased with the results that we are applying the SportsAide treatments to additional facilities," said Mike Goforth, Director of Athletics Training. "Our proactive steps towards defense against microbial contamination are setting new standards for athletics across the nation."

Grundy Wrestling Club treated their wrestling mats, locker rooms, weight rooms and sauna with the SportsAide treatment and, following their one year checkup, is also delighted with their SAS results.

"After adopting SAS we saw immediate, noticeable improvements in our facilities. Each year about 15 bacterial infection cases were reported ... since the SAS application, there have been no reported issues. We strive to be as proactive as possible for our athletes and are very happy with the results we have seen," said Brant Robertson, spokesman at Grundy Wrestling Club.

SAS is powered by the AEGIS Microbe Shield(R) technology, which has been safely used in consumer and medical applications for more than 30 years. Registered with the EPA, it imparts an odorless, 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.

SportsAide treatments protect athletic facilities including training rooms, locker rooms, whirlpools, gym mats and exercise equipment from microbial contamination; TurfAide treatments provide antimicrobial protection to synthetic turf systems; FabricAide treatments provide antimicrobial protection, stain releasers and odor control to all sports laundry.

SportCoatings partners with mPact Environmental solutions, of Fountain Inn, S.C., exclusive provider of the AEGIS Microbe Shield to the Building Aftercare market. (http://www.mPactUSA.com)
