GTech is the only chemical bound, non-leaching additive that provides unmatched safety and performance, at a competitive price. Our product tested at 0.25% by standardized test methods significantly out-performs competitive silver products at 1%. GTech has a p-factor that rivals all standards in any study. In short, GTech active ingredient is EPA registered, United States Department of Defense reveiwed, tested by independent laboratories, and is effective against a broad range of microbes.
GTech VS Silver & Triclosan
Making choices about which antimicrobial technology to use for your products is now easy. The words “bound,” “embedded,” and “contained” are much different than the word “chemically bound.” Understanding the facts about modes of action, safety in handling, and durability before choosing your antimicrobial is important. With GTech Technology we are able to make the antimicrobial protection permanent or semi-permanent.
|GTech Silane Based||Silver based||Triclosan-based|
|Mode of action||Physically ruptures cell membrane||Releases ionic free radicals that react with cell DNA and disrupt critical life processes in the cell.||Releases bischlorinated phenol (PCB) for consumption or cellular absorption, causing lethal mutations in the cell.|
|Durability||Permanent||Embedded in or on fiber binder or coating.||Embedded in or on fiber binder or coating.|
|Adaptive organisms||Does not promote adaptive organisms||Can create adaptive zones.||Can create adaptive zones.|
|In-plant safety / handling||Mild eye irritation||Harmful if inhaled, harmful if absorbed through skin, moderate eye irritation.||Moderate eye irritation, harmful if absorbed through skin, avoid contac with skin, eyes, or clothing. Do not breathe dust.|
Gtech vs Other Cleaners
GTech vs Bleach
Bleach is a mixture of sodium hypochlorite and various peroxide-producing compounds. Bleach kills quickly, but has no extended durability profile. As well, bleach releases VOC’s – the gases that burn eyes, and smell terrible. Furthermore, the chemicals in bleach permanently denature microbes which gives them the capacity to evolve to “superbugs”!
GTech vs Lysol™
Lysol™ is a quaternary chemical that is combined with other chemicals. Lysol™ kills quickly, but has no extended durability profile. As well, Lysol™ releases VOC’s – the gases that burn eyes, and smell terrible. Furthermore, the chemicals in LysolTM permanently denature microbes which gives them the capacity to evolve into “superbugs”! Gtech is a technology shown extremely effective against Bacteria, Fungi, Algae, and Virus with a durability profile second to none!

GTech takes cleaning to the next level! Not only do GTech cleaners fight everyday germs, viruses and bacteria, our technology also disinfects microbially – battling “superbugs” that other cleaners leave behind. FDA approved, skin friendly, made in the USA. GTech saves you time and money. In a head-to-head comparison, Gtech is over 30 times more durable, requires 90% less product, takes 99% less time to apply and saves an average of over $2,300 annually!
|GTech Antimicrobial Products||Conventional Cleaners|
|Durability||GTech’s durability profile is second to none. GTech is over 30 times more durable than conventional cleaners.||Conventional cleaners have no extended durability profile. As soon as the chemical product is dry, the surface begins to recontaminate.|
|Dwell Time||GTech decreases dwell time with a 99.9% reduction of microbes on contact.||Significant dwell times increase time spent cleaning and allow for recontamination.|
|Chemicals||GTech’s active ingredient is organic and silane-based, physically disrupting the organism without the use of dangerous chemicals! GTech effectively electrocutes offending microbes, preventing the creation of much feared “superbugs”. With GTech no allergic reactions or harmful skin irritations will occur.||Chemical-based antimicrobial agents poison microbes, giving them the capacity to evolve into “superbugs”. Chemicals cause skin irritation and increase occurrences of allergies.|
|Fumes||GTech is colorless and non-leaching, with no VOC’s or harmful chemicals.||Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC’s) release into the air we breathe, smell terrible and make us sick.|
|Toxicity||GTech is colorless and non-leaching, with no VOC’s or harmful chemicals.||If Ingested – Conventional cleaners can cause cold sweats, circulatory collapse, convulsions, coma, and even death.|
