The Nitrogen Molecule
Microbes are negatively charged. The positively-charged nitrogen molecules in Goldshield attract negatively-charged microbes to the surface or textile. The resulting contact between these two elements enables the antimicrobial action to take place.
The Long Carbon Chain
The third component of the Goldshield technology is the long carbon chain that releases the ionic charge that punctures the microbe's cell membrane upon contact. This function distroys microbes mechanically. As this takes place, the quaternary compoundst of Goldshield denature the microbe's proteins to distroy them chemically.
The dual functionality offers a unique and important factor to Goldshield's antimicrobial efficiency. No other water-stable antimicrobial agents available today provide instant action while retaining a residual performance.
