Whilst the world was battling the adverse effects of the pandemic, at Touch Australia we were hard at work collaborating with industry-leading chemists and scientists to develop one of the safest and most effective antimicrobial solutions in the fight against bacteria, viruses and germs.

Fast-forward 12 months and we’ve created 30-Surface Guard. A unique surface sanitiser providing long-lasting protection, up to 30 days, with a single application. 

30-Surface Guard, and it's MikroGuard+ technology, has undergone over 300 individual Australian and international laboratory tests to confirm its efficacy with tests conducted by Eurofins, Intertek, Viroxy Labs and more. These tests have shown that 30-Surface Guard is not only effective against 99.99% of bacteria and viruses including Poliovirus, Herpes virus, Influenza A and Influenza B, with 30 days of residual protection on hard surfaces for up to 30 days. 

30-Surface Guard was also reviewed and listed (ARTG ID 355166), as a hospital-grade disinfectant under their Other Therapeutic Good category. 

How does 30-Surface Guard work?

When applied to a surface, 30-Surface Guard attracts pathogens on that surface. Once attracted, these pathogens are then killed or inactivated on contact, leaving them unable to adapt to the formula. As a result, there is no possibility of these pathogens developing immunity (unlike alcohol-based sanitisers). Simultaneously, the formula bonds to the surface and creates a protective antimicrobial layer. This layer protects against a wide range of harmful germs and bacteria for up to 30 days.

Technology behind 30-Surface Guard 

During 30-Surface Guard’s development and formulation, our team were mindful of the surmounting research and evidence highlighting the ineffectiveness of alcohol-based sanitisers in protecting against pathogens in the long-term. Research conducted by Ogilvie et al (2021) underline that Quaternary Ammonium Compounds (QACs), the active ingredient in 30-Surface Guard, were effective disinfectants for the inactivation of multiple bacteria and pathogens. The research illustrated that QACs go beyond merely inactivating the virus. QACs are also quick-acting, making them practical for use in healthcare and hospitality settings where prompt disinfection is required. 

30-Surface not only sanitises surfaces but also cleans it and acts as a protectant via its antimicrobial layer. Three benefits, in one effective and efficient product. 

  1. Disinfectant
  2. Cleaner
  3. Protectant
