24/7 Antiviral + Antibacterial Touchscreen Protectors from Eiger

Unlike high-street consumer screen protector brands that ONLY guard against bacteria, Eiger's screen protectors with Kastus’ proprietary technology is proven to kill >99% of viruses including the Human Coronavirus, Influenza A (seasonal flu), Rhinovirus (common cold) + harmful bacteria such as E. coli and Salmonella. Antimicrobial products (PET or Tempered Glass) that rely on silver coatings to ‘poison’ the bacteria are only effective for months. Whereas Kastus’ patented light-powered technology is permanently embedded and designed to last the lifetime of the screen protector with no reduction in efficacy over time.

What does Antimicrobial mean?

‘Antimicrobial’ is the halo term describing products that kill / inhibit microorganisms. Microorganisms include bacteria, viruses, protozoans, and fungi such as mould and mildew. Touchscreens collect bacteria and viruses when we touch them. Human Coronavirus can live on surfaces for up to 28 days after exposure, while phones have been shown to carry 10x the amount of bacteria that can be found on toilet seats. Exposure to un-hygienic touchscreens can help accelerate the spread of unwanted viruses and germs. Certain brands claim ‘antimicrobial’ efficacy but are ONLY EFFECTIVE AGAINST BACTERIA such as a E. coli and SA. Exposure to E. coli can cause intestinal infections and sickness.

Kastus is superior to other ‘antibacterial’ only technologies, because our technology protects screen users against BACTERIA AND VIRUSES (including Human Coronavirus/COVID and common viruses such as Influenza A (common cause of seasonal flu) and Rhinovirus (best known cause of the common cold).
