    Safe & Sound

    Our active ingredients are certified by the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) Biocidal Products Regulation (EU) 528/2012. This regulation aims to improve the functioning of the biocidal products market in the EU, while ensuring a high level of protection for humans and the environment.


    TouchShield™ comes with an advisory in-use lifespan of around 6 months, depending on traffic and usage. The anti-microbial properties of TouchShield™ remain effective for 12 months and do not decline over time.


    TouchShield™ is self-sanitising by nature, avoiding the need for prolonged, extensive and regular use of disinfectants - which have proven detrimental health effects. This reduces the cost of cleaning with heavy-duty chemicals. All you need is a mild-detergent or soap and water solution to freshen up any surface protected with TouchShield™.

    The Science Behind TouchShield™

    TouchShield™ works through the measured, slow release of electrostatically-bound monovalent silver ions from novel di-phosphorus pentoxide glass structures. This creates an ‘active’ ion reservoir. The positive charge of the silver ions is maintained via atmospheric moisture. The silver ions break down the ‘active negatively charged’ cell membrane outer layer of the bacterium or virus pathogen, neutralising this active functional layer and deactivating the pathogen, leaving its core ‘open’ to attack by more active species and rendering it completely inactive.
