Livinguard’s patented technology has been proven to continuously destroy 99.9% of pathogens (microbes) such as viruses and bacteria. These include influenza and yellow fever viruses, SARS-CoV-2 and various variants of the corona virus, tuberculosis and E. coli, staphylococci and salmonella. This technology has now been further developed and optimized.
As part of the "Restart" congress on September 15-16, 2021 in Berlin/Germany, Livinguard Technologies AG, Zug/Switzerland, presented the world's first permanent biocide-free disinfection. This new method is based on the existing, patent-protected active principles of positively charged surfaces. In addition, the technology has a permanent self-disinfecting effect. Livinguard can use various processes to apply the technology to many different materials (including textiles, plastics and paper). Thanks to this permanent self-disinfection efficacy and the wide range of possible applications, this new development represents an important innovation in the field of hygiene and is another important step towards sustainability.

The biocide-free Livinguard technology, which is now being presented for the first time, is safe for humans due to its electric charge-based mode of operation and thus represents a very good environmentally friendly and resource-saving alternative to conventional disinfection methods. Scientific tests, presented at the congress, show that the antimicrobial properties bind to the carrier material and thus do not lose their effectiveness through the passage of time or other influences (e.g. washing). Another advantage: Because the technology is based on a mechanical principle of action, the formation of resistance is extremely unlikely – an issue that traditional disinfection methods based on chemical solutions in particular struggle with.
Livinguard technology is used in a wide range of applications, including the medical sector and various industries. Currently, it can be applied to face masks, personal and professional apparel, home textiles, hygiene products, computer hardware such as keyboards, and air and water filters.
