Antimicrobial Patent

PITTSBURGH, PA | The US Patent Office has issued to Biosafe a composition of matter patent on the siloxane polymer that is the keystone of the company's proprietary antimicrobial technology.

The chemistry involved in the Biosafe antimicrobial causes it to bond molecularly to the treated surfaces of film, nonwovens, and other substances, enabling it to resist leaching or migration and providing long-lasting protection against bacteria, mold, mildew, and fungi.

In addition, the antimicrobial punctures and ruptures the cell walls of target microbes rather than leaching into the cells, preventing the microorganisms from mutating and adapting to the antimicrobial treatment, becoming so-called “super-bugs” that have become a source of cross-infection in hospitals and clinics.

Commercial applications include medical devices, portable electronics, computer keyboards, building products, sporting goods, and apparel.
