What is Fibreshield™?

Home What is Fibreshield™?
Max Germ Guard™ Fibre Shield™ is a new, antimicrobial fibre protection that is set to revolutionise the Carpet & Upholstery Cleaning Sector.

Fibre Shield™ continually inhibits the growth of microbes, such as bacteria, mould, mildew and fungi. Microbes can cause odour, discolouration, and deterioration of carpets & upholstery.

The Max Germ Guard™ brand is fast becoming one of the most recognised, and effective antimicrobial protection solutions on the market, not only will Fibre Shield™ provide a continual defense against damaging microbes, but the long-lasting, durable barrier will help prolong the life of your carpet & upholstery products.

Carpets contain on average, 7 BILLION bacteria per square metre, where it is proven to affect health and in some cases respiratory and skin conditions.

Instant Protection

The Max Germ Guard™ Fibre Shield™ technology is a water based suspension containing millions of microscopic protectors that attach themselves to the surface of the fibre, like a “bed of nails”. As soon as microbes come into contact with the Fibre Shield ™ barrier the cell wall is pierced and immediately destroyed. This is known as a “Mechanical Kill”. Upon application and once dry, Fibre Shield™ creates a safe and invisible, stain resistant barrier that repels water and kills bacteria for up to 12 months before re-application.
