SANIFILTER

THE SANIFILTER ANTIMICROBIAL TREATMENT
A revolutionary product that leads this new nanotechnology era, the SANIFILTER
Treatment was created by a group of scientists to meet the growing needs
for better healthiness and elimination of pathogenic micro-organisms right
from the source.
The SANIFILTER makes it possible to inhibit and
eliminate:
BACTERIA
VIRUSES
FUNGUS: yeast and mold
MICRO PARASITES

NANOTECHNOLOGY
Since the Middle Ages, Silver has been known for its
antimicrobial properties
A nano is 1.000.000 times smaller than a millimetre.
The SANIFILTER Treatment made of silver crystals which have an average size
of 20-50 nm, makes it possible to have an immediate and effective action!
The smaller the silver crystal, the better its ionic availability is. Thus, as it is
released, the silver ion binds to the deceiving micro-organism’s DNA or RNA
to inhibit its growth and eliminate it.
Another factor which determines its effectiveness is that the nanocrystals
cover a greater surface than regular silver crystals.

WHY USE A FILTER TREATED WITH THE SANI FILTER TREATMENT?
The filters are the perfect place for micro-organisms to reproduce.
Their ideal colonization environment being dark and hot.
Vacuum cleaner waste and the dust retained by the filters which is made up of dead skin, hair, food and soil, are an ideal source for nutrients.
Bacteria reproduce at a phenomenal rate and are thrown back into the air as the vacuum cleaner is activated.
The SANIFILTER Treatment has proved to be effecttve in inhibiting and eliminating the
following micro-organisms:
• Staphylococcus aureus
• Escherichia Coli
• Klebsiella pneumonia
• Salmonella
• Listeria Monocytogenes
• Pseudomonas aeruginosa
• Shigella
• Bacillus cereus
• Clostridium difficile
• Aspergillus Niger
• Candida albicans
• Dust mites
• Avian influenza
• and many more

DID YOU KNOW THAT ….
After 10 hours, a bacterium can reproduce more than
one million times!

HOW TO COMPARE ANTI-MICROBIAL AGENTS …
Is the suggested product bactericide or bacteriostatic?
One eliminates the micro-organism. the other prevents it from growing therefore it
remains present. The SANIFILTER Treatment has both effects.
Is it effective enough to eliminate all the micro-organisms?
Antibiotic-type products are made suitable for certain bacteria. Certain antimicrobial
agents of chemical origin are effective only on one micro-organism group (ex: bacteria)
and not on others (ex: fungous). The SANIFILTER Treatment works thoroughly
and is effective on all micro-organisms.
Does the product have a long lasting effect?
Certain products evaporate allowing only temporary protection against micro-organisms.
The SANIFILTER Treatment is effective for the whole life of the filter.
When are the micro-organisms eliminated?
The SANIFILTER Treatment has shown us that it eliminates bacteria on “contact”.
No other tested technology has allowed us to obtain such results.
What is the toxicity hazard ofan antimicrobial agent?
Here are the verifications to be carried out exposure risk during application. volatile
residue after application (irritating agent). environmental disposal. The SANIFILTER
Treatment does not contain any formaldehyde or chlorophenol. It’s a water
based mixture!
How do I apply it?
This technology is really flexible and easy to apply to all fibers and appliances. It is
adaptable to many manufacture processes.
Cost management…
The SANIFILTER Treatment demonstrates a higher efficiency than other silver
technologies. The turnkey service assures a constant rate without surprises!
AFTER EVALUATING ALL TECHNOLOGIES, SANIFILTER SELECTED THE UP TO
DATE ANTIMICROBIAL AUXILIARY.
