Air filters are part of the front-line for dealing with microbial problems in our modern buildings. Upgrading the efficiency of air filters by adding a durable, safe and effective antimicrobial treatment can protect the air filter from abnormal fungal growth and improve the air quality of our buildings. With the proper choice of an antimicrobial agent applied to air filtration media, you can prohibit the growth of microbes on filter surfaces, reduce the number of microbial cells in the air stream, and reduce the level of microbes in the indoor environment.
Microbes, as sources of irritants, sensitizers, discomforting products, toxicants, and disease-causing agents have enormous consequences on human productivity, comfort, health, and general well-being. This fact clearly links microbes to the cause, effect, and remedy equation needed for establishing and maintaining good indoor environmental quality.
But, as important and necessary as antimicrobials are, they cannot be used without serious safety considerations. Many chemical agents can and do exhibit excellent biocidal and antimicrobial properties, yet often with dangerous side effects and severe human and animal toxicity problems. The antimicrobial agent must not introduce toxicants into the environment, lose its effectiveness by dissipating before filter life expires, adversely affect filter efficiencies or static pressure characteristics, or allow for microbial adaptation.

The ÆGIS Microbe Shield Technology addresses these criteria completely. This technology has an outstanding toxicological and safety profile. Due to the chemical bonding of the active ingredient, the ÆGIS Microbe Shield Technology assures long lasting effectiveness without migration of the active ingredient into the environment.
The ÆGIS Microbe Shield Technology provides a powerful tool on air filters for dealing with one key element in the battle for improved indoor environmental quality—minimizing microbial infiltration via the air handling system.
Friendly to the Environment and You
The ÆGIS Microbe Shield is environmentally friendly. No heavy metals means no worries. The ÆGIS Microbe Shield addresses the two main ecological concerns associated with leaching antimicrobials: bleeding harmful toxins into the environment and the generation of adaptive organisms (super bugs). The mode of action of the ÆGIS Microbe Shield is physical and its molecular makeup alleviates these concerns.
