Bac-Shield Lab Tests

Laboratory tested on various textiles and surfaces according to AATCC and ASTM industry standard tests.

Demonstrated effectiveness against odor-causing organisms, molds, and fungi.

Testing on specific textiles and surfaces is required to determine effectiveness against specific organisms on those substrates.

Mold / Fungi Test Results – 4/17/2006

The solution was applied on filter paper by dipping. The treated sample in wet state was tested directly. The solution content of treated sample is controlled in 110-120% (based on the dry weight of paper)

Recommended concentration for application solution is 6 ounces of Bac-Shield per gallon of water (4.5% solution).  

These data are derived from laboratory testing.  Tests are being conducted to determine the minimum effective concentration in the field.
