COMPARISON

So, how does our PRO-Techs formula compare against other anti-microbial disinfectants?

In a word -- spectacularly.

 

The patented PRO-Techs formula is eco-friendly, incredibly efficient, long-lasting, while also being colorless and odorless. PRO-Techs is silane-based, and uses a revolutionary electric charge to kill microscopic threats.

 

The chart below highlights the advantages of having a silane-based product over any other silver- or triclosane-based options.

Mode of Action

Engineered nanostructure mechanically punctures the cell wall membrane

Releases ionic free radicals that react with cell DNA and disrupt critical life processes in the cell

Releases toxic polychlorinated biphenyl (PCB) for consumption or cellular absorption, causing lethal mutations in the cell

Leaching

Does not leach, does not migrate

Leaches for its mode of action. Must leach to work
