Germ-O-Guard, established for commercialisation of sterilisation technologies, is launching a crowdfunding campaign to introduce its line of anti-viral and anti-bacterial products to the market. The products are made from materials with self-sterilising properties, making them perfect for keeping surfaces germ free 24/7 and making them safer to touch.

Using the advanced VBFree deposition process, materials are coated with a nano-silver layer that not only blocks germs but actively eliminates them as well without the use of any chemicals which might be considered harmful or cause skin irritation, Germ-O-Guard said in a press release.

“Germ-O-Guard materials are created using the patented VBFree deposition process,” said director of marketing, Marc Edwards. “The process coats nano-silver onto laminated PET and both woven and non-woven polyester fabrics, and independent laboratory testing has confirmed our materials destroy 99% of viruses and bacteria within just a few minutes of contact. We then use these materials to create a wide variety of consumer and household products with self-sterilizing properties. Of special note are our Surface Protector skins - pre-cut self adhesive films that are applied to frequently touched surfaces such as light switches, buttons, desks, tables and countertops, and even electronic devices such as smartphones, laptop computers and tablets. The advanced VBFree deposition process can also be applied to plastics, glass and metals as well for business customers interested in adding this germ killing ability to their own products.”

Germ-O-Guard anti-viral and anti-bacterial products include face masks, phone, tablet and computer protector skins, handkerchiefs & scarves, adhesive sheets, and rolls of film for custom applications and DiY projects.

“We’ve invested a considerable amount of resources into developing a mix of products which would be very useful to consumers,” said Jensen Fong, director of operations. “But we also became very interested in seeing what creative ideas those in the DiY community would come up with. To support these creators, we are making Germ-O-Guard VBFree material available in various sizes of sheets and rolls which can be cut by hand or by using popular cutting machines. We’ve heard ideas for items such as bags, fabric covers, pouches for laptops, smartphones, tablets, ebook readers etc - the possibilities are only limited by the imagination.”

“We are working towards making these materials and our finished products available to everyone in online and local retail stores very soon,” added Edwards. “But in the meantime we are giving our Crowdfunding campaign supporters the opportunity to cut straight to the head of the line and get them early at a great discount. Not only will this help fund our initial production runs, but crowdfunding has proven to be a great vehicle for introducing innovative new products to consumers, so we’re excited to be using this to reach out to our potential customers.”
