Always-on disinfection

Touchpoint Shield™ provides a powerful layer of protection.

Completely safe for humans.
It is non-toxic and its efficacy does not rely on any other chemicals, treatments or processes.

Acts directly on the pathogen cells. Therefore, it does not create an environment in which a virus or bacterium can mutate to create a resistant variant.

Protects against odour-causing bacteria, so Touchpoint Shield™ maintains a hygienic and fresh surface.

The silver ions do not degrade. They go on working every second of every day, leaving the treated surface 99.99% free of harmful pathogens, including SARS-CoV-2.

The Touchpoint Shield™ Difference

Untreated Surface

Regular disinfection cleaning is effective against microbial contamination, such as bacteria, viruses, fungi and mould, for short periods.

After that time, new microbes landing on the surface, or left by touch transmission, thrive and replicate, quickly restoring infection risk.

 

Treated Surface

The positively charged silver ions in the nanoceramic coating are attracted to negatively charged microbes transmitted onto the surface.

By different methods, depending on the pathogen, they instantly begin destroying the cells, leaving the surface 99.99% free of harmful microbes.

Proving it works

Laser Testing

We understand you and your colleagues will want to be sure that Touchpoint Shield™ remains in place. Therefore, the coating contains an additive which reflects laser light. This allows us to carry out periodic tests, as part of on-going maintenance, by shining laser light onto the coated surface. This demonstrates Touchpoint Shield™ and its active silver ions continue to protect your workforce and customers.

 

Laboratory testing

As part of our service maintenance package, we can carry out laboratory testing of an agreed sample of coated surfaces to establish its bioburden. This hygiene monitoring will take place at locations of your choice. In this way, we will establish that the coating is still delivering extremely low bioburden levels, in line with expectations.

 

ATP Testing

We use laboratory testing instead of ATP testing because it is more accurate. ATP testing (either using bioluminescence light or digital readouts) can create positive results from both live or dead (and destroyed) microorganisms, and some wood products.

This can lead to false positive readings, because the test may react to dead or inert pathogens, rendered harmless by the action of Touchpoint Shield.  We recommend that ATP testing should be carried out as soon as a surface is cleaned at a time when any biofilm will have been removed. For more information on this topic, see our FAQ section.

Touchpoint Shield™ – scientific tests

Touchpoint Shield™ has been subject to multiple certified independent laboratory tests to establish its anti-viral and anti-bacterial effectiveness on porous and non-porous surfaces, as well as its safety.

 

They include:

ISO 21702: 2019 – Measurement of anti-viral (SARS-CoV-2) activity on plastics and other non-porous surfaces

ISO 18184: 2019 – Determination of anti-viral (SARS-CoV-2) activity of textile products

MOD ISO 20743 – Anti-bacterial activity on textiles

MOD ISO 22196 – Anti-bacterial activity on non-porous surface

Skin irritation protection – reconstructed epidermis test method to OECD Test Guideline 439

Fire retardancy test in accordance with BS 5852: 1979 Part 1

 

Test results

The tests showed Touchpoint Shield™:

  • Reduced SARS-CoV-2 on a non-porous surface by 99.6%
  • Reduced SARS-CoV-2 on a sofa textile by 99.99%
  • Reduced E coli bacteria on non-porous surfaces by 99.95%
  • Reduced Staph bacteria on non-porous surfaces by 99.94%
  • Reduced E coli on coated fabrics that had been washed 3 times by 99.99%
  • Is not a skin irritant
  • Passed furniture and furnishing fire safety regulations
