IMPORTANT COMPANY & PRODUCT UPDATES:
Latest Update 15th June 2020
We recently announced a new exclusive distribution contract has been signed with our new USA partner Bio Anti-bac Inc. who will trade as bioarmor-nanousa for USA, Canada and Mexico.
A new website and webshop is in the process of being constructed and we hope to have that 'live' and up and running shortly & that all USA publicity material will be checked to ensure compliance with local guidlines.
Bioarmor-nano is sold in the USA under both an exemption guidline for some ingredients but with the biocidal ingredient (nanosilver) carrying a valid EPA number. All USA literature and websites will be statement compliant to USA EPA guidlines. All UK & USA publicity items are currently being reviewed (15th June 2020) and will be amended to ensure compliance.
updated 15th June 2020
Now that we have confirmed our American EPA status for our nanosilver additive - we're just waiting for official approval of the required format to display our EPA number correctly on all our packaging, website, PR releases and printed materials. We will update here when we have the details.
updated 15th June 2020
Bioarmor-nano® has finalized testing on a version of Bioarmor-nano® antibacterial & antimicrobial coating that is suitable for sale into the USA. We will be launching the product imminently and with a valid EPA registration (Environmental Protection Agency) number to add to our European BPR (Biocidal Product Register) approval.

Updated wording 17:09 29th April :
The active biocidal agent in bioarmor-nano® coating is nanosilver and after recent test results were analysed it has been proven that “Nanosilver has been confirmed to be over 90% effective in reducing viruses when in a textile coating”. In light of these results we have stepped up our own testing of the nanosilver in our nano-coating to see if we can replicate/approximate those efficacy results within the framework of our coating.
Although we are quietly confident - we cannot claim viral efficacy (in addition to our certified antibacterial efficacy) until we have completed our testing (to ISO standard) on the bioarmor-nano product but these tests are ongoing and we will announce test results on this site as soon as we receive them.
An extract our lab's official website:
“the chemical building blocks of viruses are not invulnerable because they contain sulphur atoms. The sulphur atoms react with silver at the chemical level and lead to the irreversible destruction of the viral building blocks. Viruses are immobile: once placed on a surface, such as a door handle, they must first come into contact with silver. And this is where nano-technology brings its invaluable advantage; Silver can be used in the smallest quantities, finely divided and actively against viruses on surfaces such as door handles, handles, touch screens, etc. The effectiveness of nanosilver against viruses has been proven in numerous scientific studies that have been carried out worldwide (Source 1-7).
The project was to investigate the contribution to hygiene made by surfaces that are equipped with nanosilver. A double-blind study showed that the hygiene benefits are significant: 50% fewer germs settle on surfaces that contain nanosilver in the form of an ultra-thin coating than on surfaces that do not contain nanosilver (source 8). As a result, the project delivered a ready-to-use coating. The active ingredient nanosilver contained therein is marketable both in the EU and in the USA.
Our laboratory has increased it’s testing on viral efficacy on ‘nanosilver in bioarmor-nano coating’ since the beginning of this recent outbreak. We are testing to ISO 21702 standard which takes a set amount of time - but we will release more news on the efficacy results of nanosilver in the bioarmor-nano product against specific viruses at the end of April/beginning of May 2020.

Bioarmor-nano® active ingredient technology is currently tested to be effective on microbes and viruses 24/7 for the lifetime of the coating - which is a minimum of 3 months on a surface with normal usage.
The most important advice at this time is to follow the official government hygiene guidance and keep safe
We will update this section as soon as we receive updates and developments from the Lab.
Did you know that dust in our homes contains an average of 9,000 different species of microbes? That your phone screen has more nasty bacteria than a toilet seat? Research by the Good Housekeeping Institute also found that everyday electronic devices (like our phones, laptops and tablets) as well as handbags, remote controls, car sat-navs and the kitchen sink are hotspots for bacteria and microbes. Despite being regularly wiped-down, untreated kitchen worktops can contain an average of 1,736 bacteria per square inch. Meanwhile, bathroom taps and handles contain 50,068 and mobile phones 11,020. Pretty gross, right?
Bacterial and microbial growth can contribute to mould, surface degradation & nasty odours in the home.
Drastically reduce your use of plastic bottles and wipes...
Bioarmor-Nano has developed the first and only air-dried nano coating product that continues to effectively reduce the growth of harmful bacteria for THREE MONTHS with a single wipe.
Reduce harmful bacteria that attack our home, product and device surfaces by up to 99.9%. Have an ultra-clean & fresh surface, all day long!
Our easy wipe-on, invisible & super thin coating contains a super tiny antibacterial additive that’s effective, eco approved in Europe (BPR) and the USA (EPA). It's tough & durable and can be easily applied to a range of household surfaces, products and devices. On most surfaces this coating lasts a minimum of 3 months before re-application is recommended.CLICK HERE TO SHOP
Bioarmor-Nano® products have several different formulatons and packaging for HOME - GADGETS & TECH - PET PRODUCTS - KIDS TOILET TRAINING PRODUCTS - AUTO INTERIORS -TRAVEL & VACATION.
Bioarmor-Nano® products will protect the surfaces in your home & the surfaces of your products & devices from the growth of harmful bacteria without the daily need for harsh/ toxic chemicals or bucket loads of elbow grease. Bioarmor-nano® products are backed by independent laboratory research & are tested to conform to BPR standards and is manufactured to BAUA accreditation. We are currently in the process of applying for our EPA application in the USA and we manufacture in Europe to ISO standards.
Our antibacterial coating is laboratory tested & proven to remove up to 99.9% of harmful surface bacteria & microbes. The product removes up to 99.9% of bacteria as it is applied and then the formula is designed to dry and leave an invisible nano-thin layer that starts protecting your surfaces from attack by harmful bacteria within 5 minutes (touch-dry) & continues the protection for a minimum of 3 months.
We hope you like it!
