Goldshield® which is the core technology behind Positive Petcare is the world’s first modern, next generation, patented, water stabilised, non-toxic, non-leaching, long lasting prophylactic shield against bacterial contamination.
Most traditional deodorisers and anti-bacterial products deactivate shortly after application, posing a risk of skin, fur and textiles quickly becoming re-contaminated. Using Goldshield’s unique breakthrough technology will persistently protect any physical surface or textile from microbial contamination to help mitigate the spread of infectious diseases.
Goldshield® is a system of products which flow from a core antimicrobial formula that is the only water based sanitiser in the world that offers this level of long lasting protection in such a multitude of applications. The core antimicrobial was awarded The Presidential Green Chemistry Challenge Award in the USA by the Environmental Protection Agency ( EPA ).
The technology forms a covalent bond which remains affixed to any surface or textile material through a silane carrier. The substrate is then positively charged by a nitrogen molecule which pulls in negatively charged microbes. Through a long carbon chain this unique molecular assembly penetrates the cytoplasm tic membrane, physically stabbing the membrane, pulling ions out and denaturing proteins. This renders the microbe dead on contact and does not pose the risk of genetic adaptation or the formation of a “super-bug”.
