The First Re-applicable, Re-chargeable, Spray-on Antimicrobial
HaloFilm is a unique product developed at Cornell University that can make any surface a "self-santizing" surface that automatically kills viruses and bacteria for days
HaloFilm Holds Chlorine on Surfaces
HaloFilm comes in a spray bottle. After spraying and drying on the surface, HaloFilm leaves a thin invisible film. That film extends the effectiveness of chlorine based sanitizers, disinfectants and cleaners by holding chlorine in an active state on the surface for several days. Usually chlorine will evaporate off a surface within an hour after being applied. With HaloFilm on a surface, your chlorine disinfectant will continue disinfecting for days. The film can last for weeks or months, but the chlorine might not last if the surface gets dirty. However, regular use of a chlorine product will keep the chlorine levels high as long as the film is present. And, you can re-apply the film with another spray of HaloFilm.
BROAD MATERIAL COMPATABILITY
Our thin-film coatings can be applied on all types of environmental surfaces, including stainless steel, plastics, rubber, ceramic, cloth and glass.
BROAD RANGE OF USES
HaloFilm can be used in a variety of ways. For human health, HaloFilm can be sprayed on high touch surfaces, like doorknobs and elevator buttons to provide continuous protection against pathogen spread. HaloFilm can also be used to promote food safety and reduce mold and mildew.
BROAD SPECTRUM EFFICACY
Since chlorine is the active biocidal ingredient, HaloFilm is effective against everything that chlorine is effective against, and chlorine is one of the most used and effective biocides we use. HaloFilm is effective against bacteria, viruses, and fungi (mold) while also being safe and avoiding skin irritation.
