Photo Insert: ACLIV is a self-sanitizing film that is both anti-viral and anti-bacterial.
Technologies that help safeguard ourselves have proliferated the market. Vaccines and boosters, air purifiers, sanitizers, protective gear— all these have become commonplace and easily accessible.
What needs to be included in the conversation is a simple yet powerful product that is now available in the country: ACLIV, a self-sanitizing film that is both anti-viral and anti-bacterial.
What is ACLIV?
NEOTENY, a South Korean biotech company and an international leader in the production of carbon heating films, ACLIV addresses the need for everyday defense. An acronym of its slogan, “Always Clean Live”, ACLIV provides everyday surface protection at its core.
High effectivity rates and accreditations provide certainty, and ACLIV protective films have just that. Affirming that its technology abides by international health and safety standards, ACLIV has achieved approval by the United States Food and Drug Administration (2021), given the Conformitè Europëenne (CE) Mark by the European Union (2021), and certified by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) in France and Japan (2021).
Furthermore, accredited tests and studies prove that it is highly successful in killing 99.9% of viruses (including COVID and its variants) in a span of half an hour and 99.9% of bacteria in just a matter of 10 minutes.
Depending on the kind of film you choose, ACLIV’s de-activating technology incorporates either silver or copper nanoparticles. These ions have been proven to break down both bacterial and viral cell membranes, block their division, thereby deterring the replication of such pathogens on non-porous surfaces.
The persistent use of alcohol and disinfectant, though an encouraged and standard practice, does have its share of disadvantages and inconveniences. Aerosols from sanitizers are loaded with chemicals that are respiratory and skin irritants. Washing hands is often forgotten or altogether disregarded as a waste of time.
ACLIV does away with the downside of a lot of these protocols. Through convenient and hazard-free protection, the shielding of objects and contact areas is one less thought to worry about. Through ACLIV’s surface protector film, touching everyday surfaces becomes more secure.
When applied correctly, ACLIV does not compromise the integrity and feel of the exterior it is attached to. For instance, with their transparent silver ion screen protector, touchscreen devices are more than protected. Easily installed with long-lasting adhesion, the film goes as far as providing scratch and shatter resistance, anti-smudging, and no screen distortion.
With clear and translucent options available, ACLIV’s protective silver films utilize PET (polyethylene terephthalate) plastic, a more lightweight and heat resistant alternative to the common PVC (polyvinyl chloride). A hardier option is their translucent copper film which employs PC (polycarbonate) plastic. On durability alone, ACLIV silver films can last up to 1 year, while the copper variant maintains its condition well into 5 months. Climate and other exterior conditions do not affect either films’ self-sanitizing technology.
ACLIV has even gone to great lengths to consider personal health and the environment. Their films are sustainable and a non-hazard. Their use of PET alone is safe. The material has been approved by the U.S. FDA and is widely used for packaging food and beverages.
Furthermore, despite the higher cost, ACLIV has insisted on encasing their products in eco-friendly material made from sugarcane: fully biodegradable, 90% recyclable, and devoid of timber-use or bleaching agents. A percentage of each purchase also supports a growing list of environmental organizations that include the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF). Ever true to their mission of protecting communities, safeguarding the environment is just as important with ACLIV as looking out after people.
