AMV Shield


Passive protection of surfaces is a vital part of achieving a consistent defense against the spread of infection. AMV Shield uses specially prepared silver particles to embed anti-microbial nano particles into the very fabric of our polyurethane materials, providing long-lasting, continuous protection from a wide variety of pathogens.


AMV Shield offers exceptional anti-viral, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-mold properties, reducing bacteria by up to 99.9%, protecting against viruses such as H1N1 and demonstrating a reduction of 90% against Feline Coronavirus; a suitable surrogate from the same family as the human coronavirus strain SARS-CoV-2. The system also reduces MRSA antibiotic resistant bacteria by up to 99.9%. 


By utilizing a method of integration which ensures the anti-microbial silver nano particles are securely embedded, we ensure materials made using the AMV Shield system do not leach into the environment, meaning they maintain efficacy for over 25 years and are able to be used in food packaging and distribution.


Common microbes AMV Shield protects against*:

  • MRSA
  • Influenza A H1N1
  • VRE
  • Feline Coronavirus (FCoV)
  • C-Diff
  • E.Coli
  • Legionella pneumophila
  • Listeria
  • Salmonella
  • Staphylococcus
  • Campylobacter
