It showed the efficiency of 99.99 percent against the microbes under numerous test procedures. The products that have earlier used this technology have also been tested in independent private laboratories, which has shown the same efficiency rate of more than 99 percent. Due to the infused Germ Guard technology, the glass jars and water bottles exhibit the following features:
• It is inorganic in nature
• It is highly safe, non-toxic heat and non-corrosive
• It has stability of up to 1300 degrees Celsius
• It destroys 99.99% of bacteria along with permanent anti-bacterial activity
AGI glaspac has also used active silver technology, which is behind these germfree products. Through silver ions which are evenly distributed throughout the bottle, migrates to the surface and kills the bacteria by puncturing their cell membrane. These silver ions are non-toxic and safe and are certified for use by leading laboratories and institutions. Both these technologies infused in the product help in sanitizing it from within and protects it from all the deadly viruses, bacteria, and other microbes till the product’s lifetime.
