BIOSAFE's Mission is to add value to our customers and stakeholders by providing BIOSAFE's antimicrobial product protection on or in materials for use in military, medical or consumer products.
BIOSAFE, Inc. has commercialized a novel EPA approved antimicrobial additive called HM 4100 that can be compounded directly into materials such as thermoplastic resins or applied as a coating to almost any surface. HM 4100 is a proprietary material that provides protection to a material against a broad spectrum of gram + and - bacteria, viruses, fungi and algae. The antimicrobial efficacy of HM 4100 has been vetted by United States Army Research Office during a Phase I and Phase II STTR project on personal and collective protective equipment.
HM 4100 does not leach from the surface of the treated material. The mechanism of kill is disruption of the organism’s cell wall. This mechanism of kill prevents the formation of mutated organisms. HM 4100 creates a surface that prevents the growth and colonization of microorganisms. HM 4100’s current TRL 9-fully commercialized. HM 4100 is faster acting and more effective at controlling the growth of microbes when compared to commercial silver containing antimicrobials.
