The transparent smart material easily adheres to touchscreens on the latest iPhone models and employs silver ion particles and Nanox™ technology to reduce transmissible bacteria and viruses by 99.9%
MONTRÉAL–(BUSINESS WIRE)–POSTsilver, a silver ion antimicrobial transparent film that is proven to kill 99.9% of germs, is launching a first of its kind bacteria and virus killing iPhone screen protector. POSTsilver is a transparent nanosilver material created to protect high touch surfaces where retransmission of bacteria and viruses—like COVID-19—are most prevalent. The protective film is a clear transparent material that does not augment superficial characteristics for seamless, inconspicuous use. The protective multilayer iPhone film is manufactured from polyethylene terephthalate (PET) making it smudge proof, scratch and shock resistant, while maintaining the reactivity and clear visibility of your screen. POSTsilver is available for all new iPhone models—including iPhone 12, iPhone 11, and iPhone X—and can be purchased for $14.99 USD at https://www.postsilver.com/shop
POSTsilver suppresses germs through its antimicrobial properties created by positive-charged silver ions and the FDA certified antibacterial agent Nanox™. The FDA reports that, “Silver ions have broad spectrum antimicrobial activity against bacteria, fungi, and viruses and can rapidly kill microorganisms.”1 The positive-charged silver ions embedded into POSTsilver can break through bacteria cell walls, disrupt bacteria metabolism and DNA to eliminate the threat of infection.2 Tests conducted by the Société Générale de Surveillance (SGS) laboratories demonstrated that POSTsilver reduces E. coli and Klebsiella pneumoniae by greater than 99.9% when tested for just 1 hour. Tests conducted for 24 hours also demonstrated a reduction of greater than 99.9% of harsh bacteria such as MRSA and Salmonella.
Microbial agents on commonly touched items are an ongoing risk during the course of everyday interactions—especially on smart devices. An article published by the Cleveland Clinic found that COVID-19 was detectable for up to five days on glass surfaces.3 This makes engineering new solutions in addition to robust cleaning regiments even more vital to health and safety. The transparent POSTsilver film affixed to an iPhone screen continually breaks down hazardous microbes. The durable material can last up to five years after application.
“Our phones are vulnerable; they can be one of the biggest culprits responsible for germ transmission,” said Ishan Singh, COO of A2Z Wholesale, POSTsilver’s distributor in North America. “We bring our phones everywhere and touch it dozens of times per hour, making its cleanliness a critical part of the battle to ensure a clean environment. POSTsilver is an antimicrobial solution that can unobtrusively protect us by covering the surfaces we touch most often. We created the clear, transparent iPhone screen covers to protect and continuously kill germs so we can have peace of mind using our most important communication tool.”
POSTsilver is a revolutionary antimicrobial film that can be applied to all surfaces and is proven to kill 99.9% of germs and viruses. This proprietary nanosilver antimicrobial technology is non toxic and provides sterilization, disinfection, and antimicrobial reduction for up to five years. The POSTsilver film easily installs on any flat or curved surface and ensures safety in school cafeterias and desks, on public transit, glass surfaces, ATMs or any touchscreens, as well as in offices and many other public places. Look for the POSTsilver label as a sign of safety on a variety surfaces in high touch areas.
