    One of Teflexâ„¢ most prominent attributes is its ability to be used
    for an almost infinite amount of applications. Teflex is a versatile
    coating that can be used for the treatment and disinfection of a wide
    variety of surfaces. Furthermore, in contrast to many other
    disinfectants, Teflex is not selective to any particular kind of
    microorganismâ€â€it kills all types of bacteria, fungi and viruses
    tested so far. Moreover, Teflex has a dual purpose: it can be used
    effectively both to eliminate already existing microorganisms, as well
    as to prevent biogrowth and contamination in the future.Teflex does not
    affect the physical or chemical properties or the breathability of the
    surface to which it is being applied.

    Other characteristics of Teflex that highlights it from its competition
    are: microorganisms cannot become resistant to Teflex and it is very
    safe to use. It is slightly harmful in its concentrated form; however,
    in working solutions, no harmful effect is exhibited whatsoever. Teflex
    does not present any danger to those applying it or to the surrounding
    environment. The pH of Teflex is almost neutral, indicating that it is

    Teflex is a revolutionary new type of disinfectant, capable of ensuring
    an environment free of pathogenic influence. The active ingredient
    involved in Teflexs antimicrobial properties is a guanidine based
    copolymer. The germicidal function is attributed to the ability of the
    guanidine functional groups of the Teflex polymer bonding with the
    cellular membranes of pathogenic microbes. Upon bonding, the guanidine
    functional group infiltrates the cells cytoplasm and inhibits the cells
    regulatory functions. These functions include: enzymatic activity; the
    transfer of essential nutrients across the cell membrane; cellular
    respiration; and the multiplication of the microbe. The disruption of
    the cells regulatory tasks is such that the cells can no longer
    function the way that they need to in order to stay alive; ultimately
    resulting in cell death.

    The following is an abbreviated description of the destruction process
    of the microorganisms:
    - The absorption of the biocidal Teflex molecule through the microbes
    cell membrane.
    - The diffusion of the absorbed Teflex molecules through cell walls.
    - The destabilization and destruction of the cytoplasmic membrane.
    - The cell contents disperse through the destabilized cell membrane,
    leading to,
    - The death of the cell.

    The ability of Teflex to connect to and interfere with the cellular
    membranes of microorganisms is attributed to the positively charged
    ions in the quarter-amino functional groups of the Teflex polymer.
    These positively charged sites of Teflex are attracted to the
    negatively charged sites located in the pathogenâ„¢s phospholipid
    bilayer. It is essential to note that these negatively charged sites of
    the microorganismâ„¢s membrane are required in the composition of the
    cellular membrane and its regulatory functions.
    Thorough calculations indicate that each microbial cell reacts with
    6x10^-8 (0.00000006) ml of the Teflex polymer.
    Upon initial contact with the pathogen, there is an induction of
    electro-static interference between the negatively charged groups on
    the cellular membrane and the positively charged quarter-amino groups
    of the Teflex polymer. This leads to a change in orientation in the
    pathogens membrane. The Teflex macromolecule connects with a large
    number of phospholipids in the microbes membrane; this reaction takes
    place in a cooperative manner thereby evoking neutralization of the
    negative charge in the cells phospholipid bilayer. The resulting
    compound of Teflex stabilizes, leading to an irreversible change in
    electrostatic and hydrophobic interactions of the cells membrane; this
    results in further weakening of the membrane that is an essential
    element to the life of the microbe. Eventually, lipid-lipid
    interactions are weakened to a point where the membrane is so unstable
    that the microbe no longer functions properly. Another result of the
    Teflex fusion to the phospholipid bilayer is a break in the barrier and
    transportation functions of the microbes membrane.

    As the Teflex polymer infiltrates even further, a hydrophobic fragment
    penetrates into the non-polar part of the cellular membrane, leading to
    a widening of the membrane and a disturbance of vanderwaal forces among
    phospholipid molecules. This leads to permeability changes, followed by
    a weakened membrane integrity, and eventually, the cell fragments and

    All of these effects are directed against viruses, gram-positive and
    gram-negative bacteria, fungi and protozoa; On the contrary, Teflex
    does not harm the cells of larger organisms (i.e human or animal
    cells). This is due to a difference in molecular structures and
    biochemical properties, (for example, our cells contain cholesterol
    which helps stabilize our membrane), and a difference in our cytoplasm
    and nucleus. - A Universal Antimicrobial Coating - Mold Busters - Mold Remediation Ottawa,
