Puronics SilverShield Technology
Protection For Your Home or Business
The cornerstone of SilverShield Protection is Puronics MicroSilver Bacteriostasis technology. Silver is a naturally occurring and highly effective antimicrobial agent. For centuries, silver has long been known for its antimicrobial properties and is effective in fighting a wide range of microbes. Silver provides many benefits over other antimicrobials that are chlorine, ammonia or alcohol based. Silver is proven to be safe with no toxic effects on people, plants or animals.
Puronics MicroSilver Bacteriostasis technology uses microscopic particles of silver which are embedded into our SilverShield HYgene filter media using a proprietary process. Our SilverShield Hygene filter media contains silver ions which attack microbes and inhibit their growth within the filter media bed of the water system, as well as removing or reducing tastes, odors and chlorine. Our SilverShield HYgene bacteriostatic filter media is included in the majority of Puronics residential products and in certain commercial products.
