Our core technology has been developed from years of experience and expertise and results in a unique, patented formulation that enables the ProtectUs range to offer the most unique set of benefits in our industry.
RBTs ProtectUs range significantly reduces the chance of infection AND can reduce the time and cost involved in staying protected. Viridis can be applied to a vast range of environments as a disruptive solution to viruses, bacteria and fungi affecting total protective disinfection in medical & healthcare, food & drink, animal & pet welfare and professional cleaning industries.
3 levels of protection
WHAT IS GREEN?
Green products are commonly categorised by the ingredients and manufacturing process used in their production. Our ProtectUs formulations use ingredients which are all classified as ‘Foodsafe’ in the European directive and G.R.A.S. (Generally regarded as safe) in the USA, leaving no harmful residues.
During application, ProtectUs crystallises on surfaces, enabling it to remain active in a dried state. This barrier has been proven to remain intact for at least 24 hours in mild abrasion environments and up to 7 days in untouched areas.
Unlike traditional alcohol-based disinfectants, ProtectUs solutions continue working when dry, protecting your environment between cleaning cycles.
Where other brands reach 99.9% effectiveness, ProtectUs goes significantly better, reaching 99.999%, the level where the most harmful bacteria are found. With ProtectUs, RBT has harnessed the strong biocidal properties of natural ingredients whilst remaining non-toxic and kind on the environment.
RBT solutions have undergone a variety of tests at some of the world’s leading independent laboratories including Campden BRI, BluTest and Brill + Steinman. Results have demonstrated that ProtectUs meets bacteria, virus and fungi tests against 5 EN standards for a broad spectrum of organisms.
How we do it?
Animals and plants are multicellular organisms where the single cell is protected by its neighbours. Membrane active antimicrobials applied at micro or nano concentrations might affect a single cell at the organism’s periphery but will never affect the whole organism.
Bacteria, on the other hand, are single cells but can live in greater communities – so-called biofilms. The cell membrane of bacteria is their most important protective shield against the environment, our products have been developed to rupture these biofilms so the organisms bleed out leaving them unable to reproduce.
