CellarGroupTM offers a totally new concept in sanitising, disinfecting and protecting food and beverage production facilities.
Powered by ZoonoTM, our leading-edge technology is a totally different approach for dealing with harmful microbes. While other antimicrobials rely on poisons, toxic chemicals or heavy metal ions, the CellarguardTM range utilises a patented molecular technology that destroys microbes mechanically.
Originally developed by researchers at Dow Corning Corporation, the formula was used by the US military with the primary application being on US Navy nuclear submarines.
Today it has been re-engineered into a water-based solution which provides the antimicrobial, antiviral, antifungal and antialgae protection of a broad spectrum antimicrobial sanitiser which is long-lasting and safe to use around humans and animals.
How Does it Work?
CellarGuard products work by the formation of a molecular layer of covalently bound biocidal molecules based around silicone polymer chemistry.
The simplest analogy is that antimicrobial “spikes” are formed on the surface that are highly positively charged and as a result of this charge, the negatively charged molecular structure of microorganisms are attracted to the “spikes” and the cell wall and membrane is lysed; the organism is then killed and the process continues.
