ArmourGuard® RTU reduces surface deterioration and microbiologically induced corrosion on non-food contact surfaces. This product imparts durable biostatic activity to the surface of a wide variety of substrates. Increased efficacy through proper application; durable bacteriostatic, fungistatic, and algistatic surfaces can be attained with a minimum amount of this product. This product prevents deterioration caused by bacteria and fungi (mold and mildew).

Directions For Use:
This product can be applied to organic or inorganic substrates by brushing, dipping, wiping, padding, soaking, spraying, or by using foam finishing techniques.
Optimum application and drying conditions, such as time and temperature, should be determined for each application before use. If necessary, reapply this product every three months (90 days).
  • For Pump Spray Application: Spray entire area 4 to 6 inches from the surface making sure the surface is completely covered. Apply and then let stand until dry or let stand 3 minutes and wipe dry with cloth or sponge. If spotting occurs, wipe with moist cloth or sponge. Test for staining and color-fastness of fabrics and carpets by treating and drying a small, concealed area prior to application. When treating coarser substrates, more of this product may be required due to absorption. A fan may be used to assist in drying. If necessary, reapply this product every three months(90days),or when odor, staining and discoloration due to bacteria, mold or mildew return.
  • For Wiping Application: To protect hard, non-porous surfaces, thoroughly wet surface to be treated with this product. Allow surface to dry. Excess moisture should be removed with clean, dry towel.
  • For Commercial Spray Application: For commercial application equipment (i.e. carpet and upholstery steamers, rotary jet extraction cleaners, pressure sprayers) apply without dilution and then let stand until dry or let stand 3 minutes and wipe dry with cloth or sponge. If spotting occurs, wipe with moist cloth or sponge. Test for staining and color-fastness of fabrics and carpets by treating and drying a small, concealed area prior to application. When treating coarser substrates, more of this product may be required due to absorption. Spray application is preferred on large surfaces that are easily accessible. The spray equipment chosen should provide a consistent fine (1-300 micron) particle size and uniform spray pattern. Pump up garden type sprayers can be used but care must be taken to maintain maximum pressure by pumping frequently and adjusting the spray nozzle for the finest spray pattern possible. During application achieve complete uniform coverage. Avoid excessive wetting and do not allow the spray to run or pool. Excess moisture should be removed with a clean, dry towel.
  • For Dipping/Soaking Application: Use appropriate sized wash basin or tub for dipping/soaking the item you are treating. Use enough of this product solution to completely submerge item. Completely submerge item in solution for 3 minutes. Remove item and dry. Test for staining and color-fastness of fabrics by treating and drying a small, concealed area prior to application. Do not reuse solution after dipping/soaking. The substrate can be dried at room temperatures or at temperatures to a maximum of 160° C (320° F), for example in a clothes dryer. Remove excess liquid before attempting to dry in a clothes dryer. If necessary, reapply this product every three months (90 days) or when odor, staining and discoloration due to bacteria, mold or mildew return. Dry carpet areas and surfaces before re-entry and dry articles before use. A fan may be used to assist in drying carpeting.
