Why haven’t I seen this before?

Hypochlorous was discovered in the 19th century by a British scientist. It was actually manufactured for the first time in the 1960’s. There was always a problem however in that no one was able to make a stable version that had a shelf life so it could be packaged. The only organisations that could take advantage of this incredible product were large scale industrial and agricultural operations such as dairy and poultry units, where they produced non-stable Hypochlorous onsite for immediate use. Our team and the scientists have worked out how to stabilise the active ingredient so we can now make it available to everyone.

By using the Fogger, will this affect the Fire Alarm in the building?

Do not apply the fog directly to smoke detectors. Typical application is to direct the fogger’s nozzle 45 degree toward surfaces need to be disinfected and by taking into consideration that the disinfectant is a (99.5%) water having a considerably heavy weight droplet that naturally falls by gravity on surfaces, therefore fogging the disinfectant will not trigger the intelligent fire alarm system.

Why does SHIELDme have a spa-like odor?

SHIELDme contains HOCL, which is made by ionization of salt and water, this is what causes an odor similar to that of a spa, however, it disappears after only few seconds.

Why haven't I heard of Hypochlorous Acid before?

Most people haven’t heard of hypochlorous acid which begs the question “If HOCl so effective why isn’t more widely known?”

So, despite its incredible effectiveness and being safe to the planet, humans and pets we don’t see it on shelves in supermarkets or home improvement stores

There are several reasons for this.  For starters, HOCl used to be quite costly to manufacture.  Additionally, it didn’t have a long shelf life.  After a month or so, HOCl starts to come out of solution and reverts back to plain old salt water.  For this reason manufacturing companies didn’t waste time producing it because they knew the retail price would be much higher than other cleaning products and the shelf-life would prevent mass production and distribution.

In the past few years significant improvements have been made to the manufacturing process which have lowered the cost of production.

Nowadays Advanced technologies are being used in SHIELDme production facilities to achieve this hard formula, Potent disinfectant with long shelf life at an affordable price.
