How do we know Gearlock 12HR is working?
"That sounds too good to be true..."
We hear it all the time. And we get it — long lasting antimicrobial protection is an incredible claim. But if you take a closer look you’ll find that it’s all in the science. We have formulated our products with a world-leading biotechnology called Quatlock™ which kills germs and then protects against them. QuatLock™ forms a defensive antimicrobial shield on the surfaces to which it is applied. Once bonded, the Quatlock™ doesn’t leave the surface or deplete in microbial efficacy, meaning that surfaces stay cleaner for longer. Each Gearlock™ product is formulated differently, so make sure to check the specific durability claim before using.
How QuatLock works
QuatLock™ is applied to a surface and immediately starts destroying bacteria.
As it dries the Quatlock™ technology forms a microscopic protective layer that locks onto the surface.
When new contamination arrives the Quatlock™ layer continues to defend the surface and kill bacteria and nasties.
How does QuatLock™ kill germs?
The antimicrobial in QuatLock™ is like a tiny electrical spear. When a microbe comes in contact with it, a very small electrical interaction occurs. Unlike many antimicrobials that poison germs, the QuatLock™ layer is not consumed during disinfection which mean that it can continue defend surfaces for long periods of time. Sometimes we refer to this as a self-sanitising surface.
