Shieldplus by Panaz Antimicrobial Technology


Shieldplus antimicrobial technologies are fast acting, safe and durable against a broad spectrum of bacteria, fungi, parasites and viruses. It provides a nanotechnology-based protection that acts on the physical structure of a bacteria or virus by piercing the cell wall. The non-migrating treatment attracts, pierces, deactivates and electrocutes the biochemicals within each microbe on contact. This includes the Coronavirus.

Shieldplus provides the highest level of protection, shielding against microbes such as Coronavirus, MRSA, C-diff Spore and Norovirus.
