In the late 1960s, Dow Corning Corporation, the largest supplier of silicone and silane chemicals in the world, began a pure research program. The goal was to determine if they could develop safe pesticides that would not migrate into the environment by leaching or volatilizing. The outcome would be safer, more efficient and effective pesticides.
A wide variety of chemicals were made and tested, including all kinds of herbicides, insecticides, fungicides, and bactericides. Screening tests were conducted on each, such as standard ASTM protocols and a variety of oxicological and environmental impact reviews. Out of this work came several patents and a focused effort on a particularly promising group of antimicrobials. This brought the most favorable of materials into the commercialization stages
Because of the tremendous expense of staging a material for commercialization, especially one with EPA regulatory oversight, each step must be given careful consideration. Passing the Dow Corning internal performance, safety and utility screens is often more difficult than dealing with regulatory agencies or with customers.
After receiving EPA registration under what are called "modern" standards of review, commercialization of Dow Corning technology began in 1976. Years of research by Fortune 500 companies, outside laboratories and Dow Corning verified the safety and utility of using this technology on direct human contact goods such as socks, shoes and clothing.
The rapid demand for antimicrobial technology in the 90's pushed manufacturers to develop safer and more effective antimicrobials for broader applications, and for specific industry uses. In 1995, Emory University embarked on a 4-year evaluation of the antimicrobials, re-engineering them using modern advancements in Nanotechnology to make them safer and more effective. Today, this technology leads the industry for safety and effectiveness of applications.
The result is a family of Nanotechnology, surface modifying antimicrobials that deliver safe, virtually non-toxic, permanent protection. This technology can be applied to finished products and services or incorporated into the manufacturing process, eliminating the negative concerns associated with mold, mildew, bacteria and fungi.
This EPA-registered antimicrobial technology has been safely used for over 29 years, in thousands of products such as air filters, hospital drapes, hospital clothing, wound dressings, socks, baby mattresses and baby diapers. Top companies including Nike, Reebok, New Balance, Rockport, Brillo Pads and Franklin Sports also use it. And after the 9/11 attacks, even the United States turned to this technology, using it to treat over 300 buildings surrounding Ground Zero.
