ATZ Family Products



ATZ Touch is a revolutionary technology that is radically changing the concept of an anti-microbial science in all laboratory applications. Most antimicrobials are short acting for an hour or two, later they tire out and perish. ATZ Touch effectively kills a broad spectrum of microorganisms namely viruses, mold, mildew, Algae, fungi, yeasts, gram (+) and (-) bacteria including MRSA or HAI bugs. Importantly ATZ Touchpermanently bonds molecularly to most surfaces to form an active carpet of antimicrobial molecular spikes which simply electrocute the microorganisms for extended periods of time and exhibit long term effects and is therefore very safe for laboratory applications. ATZ Touch delivers the microbial efficacy and cleaning performance that is critical for keeping the environment clean, fresh, and free of contamination therefore completely biosafe for laboratory workers.

ATZ Touch's antimicrobial technology & Compounds represent latest generation of antimicrobials. ATZ Touch technology uses the skeleton of a quat. ammonium silicone compound either in solvent or in aqueous stable solutions. By making these compounds water based systems, they become non-inflammable and require no solvents for dilution or any special handling. ATZ touch is uniformly dispersible on almost any surface, and simple and economical to use because of their extended shelf-life (month or more). These Unique characteristics make ATZ Touch and its products family ideal for use in a wide range of laboratories (including bio-safety level 1, 2, 3, and 4) and for laboratories in Industrial, Institutional, Health Care and Food Applications.

When the Ammonium compounds combine with certain types of silanes they form an integrated system, and when this system is applied to any surface, it forms a defensible layer as a result of the Silica Carpet chemistry through ion exchange & rapid polymerization which thus provides the Anti-microbial shield basedprotection. These compounds possess powerful antimicrobial properties which make them very effective against Gram positive (+) and Gram negative (-) bacteria and viruses, durable and long lasting for months, and valuable and useful for a variety of surfaces, substrates, instruments and applications. ATZ Touch antimicrobial technology and products have been employed to protect everyday laboratory practises by protecting almost any surface against microbial contamination.

The technology does not involve heavy metals, Silver, formaldehyde, oxidation chemicalsor phenol groups. The product is non Toxic antimicrobial. Unlike other antimicrobial materials, ATZ Touch does not allow or cause microbial adaptation, resistance, mutation, diffusion, or migration. It is significantly different from conventional sanitizers, disinfectants, or biocides that are extremely toxic and contaminate the environment with undesirable chemicals. Some of the differences are in its chemical nature, effectiveness, durability, and safety. This technology has a unique advantage over all previously known methods and applications: the antimicrobial component material is bonded to surface. Microorganisms are then destroyed by simple contact with the surface. ATZ Touch antimicrobial products bond to almost any surface, creating unlimited applications for the ATZ Touch's breakthrough technology.

Mode of Action & Function

Anchoring Component (Silane) - The first component of the long chain aliphatic molecule is the Silane base, which enables the antimicrobial to anchor securely onto the substrate. A covalent bond is formed slowly through hydrolysis reactions, providing long-lasting and sometimes permanent, antimicrobial protection against a broad spectrum of single cell microorganisms.

Electrocuting Component (+ charged Nitrogen) - The second component of the long chain molecule is a bolt of electricity that finishes off any speared bug that survives the sword. A positively charged atom of nitrogen writes the bug's epitaph. The negatively charged membranes of microbes will be magnetically drawn to their demise. This mechanical kill negates the need for toxic chemicals.

Piercing Component (Long Carbon Chain) - The third component of the long chain molecule is the blade that initially comes into contact with the offending microbes. This acts like a sword that punctures the cell membranes of all microbes coming in contact with it.The long carbon chain of the molecule acts as a sword, and punctures the cell membrane of the microbe that comes in contact with the treated surface.
