Eliminate harmful microbes with this Lakeland antimicrobial treatment
Lakeland Industries MicroGard™ antimicrobial eliminates microbes instantly on contact without the use of heavy metals or toxins, and does not create a “zone of inhibition” that leads to the creation of super bugs like MRSA. The “zone of inhibition” created by other heavy metal antimicrobials including copper, silver and zinc allows some microbes to stay alive and mutate which produces organisms that are resistant to the heavy metal antimicrobial compounds. Lakeland’s MicroGard™ antimicrobial attracts microbes using a miniscule electrical charge and punctures their cell wall with a microscopic spike. The effect is instantaneous and therefore does not create a “zone of inhibition” that leads to the creation of a super bug. MicroGard™ is an inherent part of the glove fibers, not a topical application, and will not wash off after 40 washes while maintaining its efficacy. Tested with ASTM E2149 and AATCC100. Test results available upon request. .
