Destroy Back-to-School Cold and Flu Woes With Duraban’s Antibacterial, Antimicrobial Barrier Solution

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla., Aug. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the common cold is one of the most common causes of absenteeism at work and school, with up to 22 million school days lost each year in the U.S. Children are at a much higher risk for catching an illness because they are more likely to put their hands and other objects in their mouths -- especially those whose days are spent in communal play.

As children return to school this fall, parents can proactively protect them from the infestation of cold-and-flu-causing bacteria. Duraban's unique antibacterial, antimicrobial formula is the first step in the prevention of microbe invasion. Duraban (licensed by BDA Industries) kills 99.9 percent of bacteria and goes even further, providing a covalently-bonded barrier that protects against viruses and bacteria like MRSA, HIV B, Influenza A, Salmonella, Staph, E-Coli and SARS and more than 40 strains of yeast, algae and fungi.

"Direct contact is responsible for the spread of many common childhood illnesses like chickenpox, cold sores, ringworm, impetigo, scabies and pinkeye," remarked Scott Gilman, President of BDA Industries. "Some illnesses are spread by sneezing, coughing, dripping or exhaling; these include the flu, the common cold, meningitis, Rubella, Strep throat, Scarlet Fever, pneumonia, mumps, and whooping cough. Duraban's unique formula protects against the growth of all these bacteria and viruses. Parents can worry less about what their children are being exposed to."

Duraban offers four unique germ-killing products to combat the spread of viruses and bacteria:

-- Children can carry the convenient DuraClean On-the-Go pocket-sized spray-bottle to kill infectious microbes on virtually any surface.

-- Washing apparel, blankets, and other textiles with Duraban Laundry Rinse will prohibit the growth of germs and keep items fresher for longer.

-- Wipe down all hard surfaces with Duraban Hard Surface spray to prevent the spread of contaminants on tables, doorknobs, and other surfaces.

-- Use Duraban Fabric Spray on colorfast fabrics that can't go in the wash - items like backpacks, draperies, carpets, and upholstery -- to stop unwanted microbes from multiplying on the textile surface.

Duraban's EPA registered formula is based on surface-modifying technology that forms antimicrobial chemical cross-links with the treated surface, creating a non-leaching and durable sword-like microbial barrier. Microorganisms like bacteria, mold, mildew and viruses are destroyed by simple surface contact, and the strength and efficacy of the bonds will not diminish over time. Conventional antimicrobials migrate and leach, wearing away over time and releasing toxic chemicals into the environment; in contrast, Duraban's bonds will not leach or migrate, allowing for enduring, eco-friendly protection.
