The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) approved Nanoshield (EPA number 84542-9), a self-disinfecting, antimicrobial transparent film. Nanoshield uses a patented form of copper to continuously keep high-touch surfaces free of viruses and bacteria, which reduces the transmission of infectious diseases, like COVID-19, via common surfaces.

Nanoshield's continuous activity defends against viruses and bacteria to provide a practical and cost-saving solution between scheduled cleanings. Nanoshield is available in rolls or tape, and the film can be sized and customized for a variety of applications.
