The AGXX technology promises an outstanding antimicrobial effect and delivers more benefits in comparison to conventional antimicrobial solutions (e.g. silver-ion- or silver-nano-based products). AGXX provides broadband effect, longer lasting effect and does not release metal ions into the environment.
How does AGXX work?
AGXX is a highly efficient, catalytically driven antimicrobial technology, based on redox reactions and microelectric field effects. In the presence of air humidity, oxygen is converted into reactive oxygen species (ROS), which react with the microorganisms and render them inactive. In addition, the existing microelectric field affects important functions of the cell membrane and accelerates microbial inactivation.
Broadband antimicrobial effect
Rapid and comprehensive inactivation of a wide range of microorganisms: bacteria, fungi, algae, viruses archaea and protoza
■ Main examples of targets for which effect was confirmed
Feline calicivirus (Tested as a substitute for Norovirus)
High chemical and thermal resistance
In situ generated free radicals
Catalytically supported redox reactions generate reactive oxygen species (ROS)
No resistance possible
No resistance possible, due to the completely different antimicrobial effect
Wide range of use
Suitable for a variety of applications
Applicable in and on many materials
