ANTIMICROBIAL CHECKSTAND AND BELT
Most Frequently Asked Questions
The Molchem™ antimicrobial process utilizes a proprietary antimicrobial formula which is EPA Registered and FDA Approved. The PVC belt is laminated with a coating consisting of the Molchem™ Antimicrobial Protectant combined with glass beads to give the Molchem™ Antimicrobial Belt long-term efficacy.
The difference in efficacy on a “new belt” vs. an “exisiting belt” is—
- like insuring longevity of a motor vehicle—change the oil, replace tires, protect vs. rusting, proper operation
- like going into battle against a hidden enemy—we need layers of defense.
- about layers of protection—Antimicrobial Belts, Cleaners, Protectants, Extended Protection Hand Sanitizers
- A new Molchem™ Antimicrobial Checkstand Belt has a much harder, safer surface where microbes cannot harbor easily. Microbes eventually dry up and die on the hard, nonporous surface. To get the maximum performance—a new belt is a fail safe way to protect customers.
A new Molchem™ Antimicrobial Checkstand Belt does at least three things:
- Kills microbes on contact
- has a long-lasting, residual killing power
- and its hard, non-porous surface will not permit microbes to live after a period of time.
The Molchem™ Antimicrobial Checkstand Belt offers maximum residual antimicrobial protection because it guards against the very real possibility that the retailer may not follow the Molchem™ Antimicrobial Checkstand and Belt Daily Cleaning Step System.
Independent Lab Testing results have shown 91.07% reduction in Staphylococcus. We are in the final phases of testing for E-Coli, Salmonella and Listeria. Testing for COVID-19 will occur immediately after those tests are completed. Following the Molchem™ Antimicrobial Checkstand and Belt Daily Cleaning Step System ensures maximum protection for employees and customers.
On a NEW Molchem™ Antimicrobial Checkstand Belt the Molchem™ Antimicrobial Protectant is permanently embedded into the belt with a topical layer added. When the Molchem™ Daily Cleaning Step System is implemented it can remain effective for an extended period of time at least through the term of the warranty.
An electric charge kills microbes on contact and creates an active antimicrobial barrier that bonds to the surface for long-term residual protection.
