Imagine a floor cleaner that once applied constantly works at cleaning itself. Well due to new technology it is now a reality.
Not only does this cleaner immediately kill any bacteria or virus but constantly pops off hydrogen peroxide as long as the lights are on.
This is called photo-catalytic. In the simplest of terms it means that as long as there is light and any type of moisture in the air it is making hydrogen peroxide.
It's like little foot soldiers always on patrol seeking out the enemy, bacteria and virus, and destroying it. Once they make contact with any contamination they start whacking at the cell wall until it dies. No Exceptions.
The photo-catalytic properties of titanium dioxide were discovered by Akira Fujishima in 1967 and published in 1972. The process on the surface of the titanium dioxide was called the Honda-Fujishima effect.
These floors are treated and coated with this floor cleaner and coating. Testing proves there are lower bacterial growth than untreated areas.
Here is a video of a college in the Bronx that is using the technology.
Thirty million square feet treated worldwide. This coating works on any floor surface.
This floor cleaner is so inexpensive that the company which markets it has just signed a deal with some huge school systems in the United States. Simix Solutions is the company name.
They also offer a coating that eliminates the need to strip and wax.
In other words once you put the coating down it is just a matter of maintaining it and when wear patterns develop you simply spray a small amount down, buff with a microfiber cloth and you are done.
It is what is called a potassium silicate or basically a coating as hard as glass but not slippery according to ASTM testing. According to testing it takes one million footsteps one upon another to wear the coating out.
Do your bathrooms smell? You can fix that — with your staff — for thousands of dollars less than other companies.
SIMIX will make your bathrooms smell better. Not by masking the smell — which never really works — but through simple chemistry.
SIMIX Multi-Surface Coating has a pH of 11, which is above the range where microbes can exist. Odor-causing bacteria cannot grow on floors coated with SIMIX because of the high pH. And while most cleaners are pH neutral, SIMIX All Purpose Floor Cleaner maintains a pH above 12. This makes SIMIX Multi-Surface Coating ideal for healthcare settings and bathrooms.
What kind of floors can SIMIX be used on? SIMIX can be used on virtually any kind of floor, including including VCT Tile, Terrazzo, Hard Tile with Grout, Polished Concrete, Linoleum, Marmoleum, Epoxy, Natural Stone, Urethane and Polyurethane Wood Flooring.
Why is it “less slippery” than floor finish? SIMIX Multi-Surface Coating has been tested in the field by a certified NACE (National Association of Corrosion Engineers) expert using what’s called a “coefficient of friction” test. SIMIX scored an average of .573 (Leather Sole Wet/Coefficient of Friction Test on a non-lab environment); most insurance companies consider a business at fault in “slip and fall” cases if their floors score below .5. Thus, having a SIMIX-coated floor could help protect your company in a lawsuit.
How long does it take to apply? SIMIX Multi-Surface Coating is faster to apply than floor finish, because it dries more quickly. That is because SIMIX’s nano-particles force out water; if you use floor finish, you have to wait for the water to evaporate. We estimate your floors will be ready for foot traffic in 20% to 30% less time than with a floor finish coat.
Do we need special training to apply SIMIX Multi-Surface Coating? No. Written instructions are found on the packaging. If you can apply wax, you can apply SIMIX.
