NanoSeptic® skins and mats from NanoTouch Materials turn dirty, high traffic touch points—like door handles and countertops—into continuously self cleaning surfaces. Engineered with a proprietary blend of material science, nanotechnology, and green chemistry, its surfaces do not contribute to antimicrobial resistance and are free of toxins, heavy metals, and diluted poisons.
One of the components of the NanoSeptic surface is a mineral nano-crystal which acts as a catalyst, charged by visible light. These nano-crystals create a continuous oxidation reaction stronger than bleach. This oxidation reaction breaks down organic material into base components such as CO2. The surface also forms free radicals which act as an additional cleaning agent. The NanoSeptic surface continuously oxidizes organic contaminants at the microscopic level. Large-scale contaminants must still be removed to allow the surface to do its job. This is similar to disinfectants, which require surfaces to be cleaned before the disinfectant can be effective. NanoSeptic surfaces are not affected by traditional non-abrasive cleaners. It is recommended that users wipe the surface with a microfiber cloth and water to remove large-scale contaminants. Abrasive cleaners or cleaning utensils should not be used as they might compromise the NanoSeptic self-cleaning surfaces.
NanoSeptic Peel-and-Stick Skins for Facility Touch Points and Fixed Applications provide a self-cleaning touch point for door push pads, push bars, handle wraps, desktop skins, and grocery cart handle wraps. NanoSeptic Mats for Portable/Movable Applications are available in multiple sizes for travel mats, student snack mats, and larger tray table and counter mats. The travel versions come in a tamper-evident travel pouch for convenient use while away from home, school, or office. Specialty NanoSeptic products include counter mat with window pocket, mouse pad, channel guide, reusable tissue box cover, and iO dots for mobile devices.
All NanoSeptic products can be purchased in their generic form or branded specifically for a business or organization.
A NanoSeptic Facility Starter Kit is also available for food service, individual physician/dental practices, banks, schools, or any business that wants to get started with the self cleaning surfaces. The kit includes one mouse pad, two 4″ x 6″ handle wraps, two 4″ x 9″ push bars, two 6″ x 9″ push pads, two 3.6″ x 12″ push bars, one tissue box cover, a general brochure, a product brochure, and a full color rigid mailing envelope for use with USPS, UPS, or FedEx.
It is recommended that users replace facility touch point skins every 90 days (quarterly). In some high traffic applications they may need to be replaced more often. Mats, mouse pads, and tissue box covers should be replaced annually. Nothing gets used up or expires, so the products’ shelf life is virtually unlimited. Product life is dependent on actual physical wear. The print serves as a wear indicator, so if the text or graphics become worn or faded, it’s time to replace. Also, if the skins start to peel off, replacement is recommended to keep the touch point looking good.
