Integral Surface Protection Program (ISP)
What is it?
The program is powered by AEGIS (AEM 5700), the world’s most widely used antimicrobial surface coating. It’s a spray-on durable antimicrobial that bonds on all surfaces and creates a protective layer that eradicates germs, microbes and harmful pathogens on contact for 12 months with a single spray-on application.
AEGIS provides a protective coating that is completely chemical-free. It has been Health Canada approved as a durable antimicrobial since 1979 and a single application of AEGIS provides 12 months of protection to treated surfaces. AEGIS is scientifically proven with massive site testing data that provides its performance. Get in touch to find out more.
The ISP Program can offer much more than just an enhanced cleaning protocol. Your finances will benefit from reduced operating costs and your customers will take comfort in knowing that your facility has increased hygiene measures and will feel safer in visiting your location. By adopting the program you benefit from reduced cross-contamination which increases productivity by keeping staff healthy. Being marked with the AEGIS shield lets others know that you care and are taking extra precautions to prioritize the safety and well-being of your staff and visitors. Chat to a team member to find out how you can benefit from it.
Since AEGIS is chemical-free, it means that it is 100% safe to touch and it doesn’t degrade the surfaces that it is applied to. The long-lasting effects make it a cost-effective option for an enhanced cleaning protocol. It is a reliable and credible way to protect against the growth of bacteria, fungus and mould leaving you with the peace of mind that your staff and buildings’ visitors are protected.
