WHAT IS ELECTROSTATIC SPRAYING?
The Electrostatic spraying systems places a positive charge on the liquid before entering the nozzle allowing the maximum level of liquids to be charged and sprayed at negatively charged surfaces (most surfaces are either negative or neutral) allowing for a more complete coverage of the targeted surface.
Charge will have an attraction level of up to 75 times that of Gravity and will seek out items to land on versus “floating” in the air.
ELECTROSTATIC SPRAY Benefits
In some cases, you can clean and disinfect at the same time, but this depends on how dirty the surfaces you are intending to disinfect are. The dirtier the surface the less effective the disinfectant. Disinfectants need to contact the area to disinfect and cannot do this effectively with a barrier of dirt or grime in the way. Once the dirt has been wiped away the disinfectant can get to work. Under lightly soiled conditions, you can clean and disinfect in the same step. (Note: EPA requires all disinfectants carry the following label direction: “For heavily soiled areas, a pre-cleaning step is required.”)
Electrostatic is based on the principle that opposite charges attract and like charges repel. Two positively charged things will repel each other. Using this natural electrostatic phenomenon, Victory has developed a patented breakthrough cordless application technology.
Using a patented technology, the process of positively charging the liquid starts at the charging ring and flows to the tank. This way all the liquid has a positive charge prior to reaching the nozzle. As most surfaces are either negative or neutral, the dispersed droplets spread out more evenly and seek out a negative or neutral surface.
The end result is that the liquid can be applied faster, using less liquid and achieving a more complete coverage of the surface.
There are many variables that can affect drying times including temperature, humidity, particle size, and the chemical used. For general reference, common drying times can vary from 5 minutes to up to 30 minutes.
The quickest way to disinfect a hospital room, an entire basement, or a school gym is by using a fogger or electrostatic sprayer that can create a fine mist to treat objects, walls, floors, and ceilings in a matter of minutes. Electrostatic sprayers and foggers can dramatically cut the time to disinfect large areas.
Cleaners are not registered with the EPA and cannot make public health claims on their label such as killing germs or having any anti-microbial action.
A substance, or mixture of substances, intended to reduce the number of microorganisms on inanimate surfaces or in water or air.
“No rinse required on food contact surfaces” is a safety rating given by NSF International (previously the National Sanitation Foundation). The NSF testing guidelines are a continuation of the USDA product approval and listing program, including the FDA 21.
Vital Oxide is rated “no rinse required on food contact surfaces” category D2, meaning Vital Oxide is approved for use in commercial or residential kitchens to control bacteria, viruses, and mold without the need to wash/rinse the area with water after Vital Oxide is applied.
What is Antimicrobial Technology?
Antimicrobial technology can be defined as a substance that works to destroy or inhibit the growth and reproduction of bacteria, viruses, protozoans, parasites, mold, mildew, algae and other microorganism depending on the type of antimicrobial.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Antimicrobials work at a cellular level to continually disrupt and prevent the growth of microorganisms. By creating an inhospitable environment (protective coating) for microorganisms like bacteria, viruses, protozoans, parasites, mold, mildew and algae to grow or reproduce.
Antimicrobials protect everyday products like counter-tops, toys, surface coatings, textiles, vehicles, furniture, residences, restaurants, hotels, gyms and hospital equipment.
The protective coating once bonded and dried on the surface, generates millions of positively-charged microscopic “spikes” which extend along the surface. Because microorganisms are negatively charged, they are electrostatically pulled onto the positively charged spikes and destroyed, as the spikes rupture their cell walls and “electrocute” them.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ANTIBACTERIAL AND ANTIMICROBIAL?
An antimicrobial is an agent that destroys or prohibits the multiplication of bacteria, fungi, parasites, viruses and other microorganisms.
An antibacterial is a type of antimicrobial which destroys or prohibits the multiplication of bacteria.
Antimicrobial technology goes above and beyond to ensure products stay cleaner, fresher and more hygienic to use for long periods of time. Treatable materials include, plastics, paints, textiles, ceramics, wood, steel, and many more.
