BacShield is an antimicrobial, and is EPA-Registered for contol of odor-causing microbes.
BacShield is a product of modified carbohydrates found in crab shells (chitosan), a plentiful renewable resource. The proteins responsible for causing allergic reactions have been removed, meaning BacShield is hypoallergenic and will not trigger shellfish allergic reactions. Chitosan is a truly green technology that is effective as an “antimicrobial for textiles and surfaces by inhibiting the growth and odor from bacteria, mold, mildew, and fungi,” according to the EPA, and has proven to be effective as a “bacteria growth inhibitor.”
BacShield incorporates the environmentally derived antimicrobial properties of these crab shells into a treatment for textiles and surfaces. Chitosan works by reacting with the surface of bacterial cell walls, forming an impermeable layer which prevents the transport of ions and molecules, effectively destroying the bacteria.
BacShield is intended as a treatment to give antimicrobial and antifungal protection to the treated materials, and inhibits the growth of bacteria, mold, mildew, and fungi that cause odor, stains, discoloration, decay and deterioration of the treated materials. BacShield will make the surfaces easier to clean and keep those surfaces clean much longer than without this treatment.
BacShield provides lasting protection between cleanings
BacShield, which is water-resistent when dry, imparts persistent antibacterial/antimicrobial properties to treated areas, "filling the gap" between cleanings by protecting items during use.
Easily applied by soaking or spraying on the surface after cleaning
Protection against odor and decay for multiple indoor and outdoor surfaces:
BacShield concentrated solution should be mixed with water at a 21:1 ratio
The normal dilution should be used when treating very porous materials and you can thoroughly dry the materials.
For mold & mildew prevention use 6-9 ounces of BacShield per 1-gallon of solution.
Control Odor & Maintain Quality!
BacShield acts as an invisible antimicrobial shield, inhibiting the growth of odor-causing bacteria, mold, mildew, and fungi on treated articles and surfaces.
BacShield may be used on both porous and non-porous contact surfaces such as but not limited to: wood, masonry, particle board, vinyl, metal, fiberglass, other interior and exterior surfaces.
BacShield may be applied to surfaces by: hand sprayer, garden sprayer, airless/ compression sprayer, cold-fogger, brush, roller, cloth, or immersion.
Step 1: Prepare
Prepare your surface as directed below for maximum adhesion, effectiveness, and longevity
Step 2: Protect
* NOTE: The normal dilution ratio is:
*For mold & mildew prevention use 6-9 ounces of BacShield per 1-gallon of solution.
Laundry: Apply to each load
Method 1: Most Economical
As an “after-wash spray treatment” for all athletic wear, clothing, linens, uniforms, textiles in general:
Method 2: Most Convenient
As a laundry additive:
Washer Type: Domestic/Coin Operated – Less than 30 lb capacity
Front Load Top Load
Cotton and cotton blends 1.75 oz / load 4 oz / load
Nylon, Polyester & Other Synthetics 6.5 oz / load 15 oz / load
Carpet, Upholstery, Drapes, Pet Bedding: Apply monthly or as needed for odors caused by bacteria, mold, milder, or fungi
The concentration of Bac-Shield can be doubled as shown above to cover twice as much area with the same amount of solution. This is done to minimize the amount of water used to cover the same area.
*The normal dilution should be used when treating very porous materials and you can thoroughly dry the materials.
Exercise Equipment, Benches, Mats, Surfaces, Protective Gear, Helmets, and Pads:
Q: Can you provide some estimates for coverage on porous and non-porous surfaces?
A: One general rule to remember is that we need to have complete coverage, so the goal is to form the 'shield'.
For mold & mildew prevention, use 6-9 oz of BacShield per 1-gallon of concentrate.
Q: Does the product tend to run on vertical hard surfaces such as concrete, vinyl siding, etc.?
A: Yes. The viscosity of the solution is very low, not much higher than water.
Q: Would we approach it as a fog application (9 to 11 spray tip) or a paint application (15 to 17 spray tip)?
A: A fine spray is very desirable for both coverage and to minimize runoff. Each applicator can decide which method works best for them.
*Distributors of products containing BacShield WS4 may not make claims of antimicrobial activity other than the protection of the treated material against the growth of bacterial, mold, mildew and fungi in or on the treated product. See 40 C. F. R. 152.25(a) for further guidance about treated article claims.
