The 3-point cleaning process combines the 2-phase effect of hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) and silver.
The oxygen split off by the hydrogen peroxide attacks the cell walls of the microorganisms upon direct contact. The chemical reaction of the oxygen with molecules in the cell walls denaturises and destroys these. This effect is boosted by silver ions that bind to the disulfide bonds of certain proteins, both of the reproduction complex as well as of the metabolic system of the microorganisms, and deactivate or precipitate these.
The hydrogen peroxide affects the membrane of the microorganisms, which allows the silver access to the inside. This dual 'hammer and ambos' effect boosts and/or exponentiates the biocide effect of hydrogen peroxide and silver on a large scale.
While H2O2 breaks down into water and oxygen (H2O2 = H2O + O2) afterwards, minute traces of silver remain on the disinfected surface. These traces are invisible and non-toxic but actively and effectively counteract regermination.
