THE ANTI-MICROBIAL ACTION OF SILVER IONS

In its (elemental) metallic form, silver is inert and does not kill bacteria. Silver atoms (written as Ag or Ag0) must lose an electron and become positively charged silver ions, Ag+. Silver is ionised in air, but above all in a humid environment. Silver ions are highly reactive and affect multiple sites in bacterial cells, guaranteeing their destruction.

  • Protects 24h a day, 7 days a week, and thus between 2 cleans
  • Protects inaccessible areas
  • Inhibits the development of 99.99% of the germs tested (tests in conformity with the ISO 22196 standard)
  • Reduces a bacterial population by 4.5 log
  • Prevents the formation of biofilm
  • Active for 5 years
  • Perfectly ecological
  • No nanoparticles

PROOF FROM TESTS

The activity of the Hexis anti-microbial film
Strain Reduction in bacteria as a % Logarithmic decrease
Salmonella enteric supsp enteric 99,99 > 4,6
Listeria monocytogenes 99,99 > 4,2
Staphylococcus aureus 99,99 > 4,1
Escherichia coli 99,99 > 4,5
MRSA 99,99 > 3,5

N.B. The logarithmic reductions obtained with silver ions may diff er depending on the techniques used and
in relation to the incubation periods and milieus used.
