  • Bac Shield (Pint)

    1 Pint with Spray Bottle

    BacShield Inhibits the Growth of Odor-Causing Bacteria, Mold and Mildew

    BacShield is an antimicrobial, and is EPA-Registered for contol of odor-causing microbes. 

    • BacShield's active ingredient is ChitoSante.

    ChitoSante, the main ingredient in BacShield, is a truly green technology that is effective as an “antimicrobial for textiles and surfaces by inhibiting the growth and odor from bacteria, mold, mildew, and fungi,” according to the EPA, and has proven to be effective as a “bacteria growth inhibitor.”   

    BacShield is a product of modified carbohydrates found in crab shells (chitosan), a plentiful renewable resource. BacShield incorporates the environmentally derived antimicrobial properties of these crab shells into a treatment for textiles and surfaces.  Chitosan works by reacting with the surface of bacterial cell walls, forming an impermeable layer which prevents the transport of ions and molecules, effectively destroying the bacteria. 

    BacShield is intended as a treatment to give antimicrobial and antifungal protection to the treated materials, and inhibits the growth of bacteria, mold, mildew, and fungi that cause odor, stains, discoloration, decay and deterioration of the treated materials.  BacShield will make the surfaces easier to clean and keep those surfaces clean much longer than without this treatment.   

    Normal Dilution ratios

    BacShield concentrated solution should be mixed with water at a 21:1 ratio

    • 1 Pint of solution will make up to 3 ready-to-use gallons
    • 1 gallon of solution will make up to 22 ready-to-use gallons 
    • Shelf life: 2 years

    The normal dilution should be used when treating very porous materials and you can thoroughly dry the materials.

    • 1.5 oz Bac-Shield per 32-oz of solution 
    • 6 oz Bac-Shield per 1-gallon of solution

    For mold & mildew prevention use 6-9 ounces of BacShield per 1-gallon of solution.  

    Features & Benefits

    BacShield provides lasting protection between cleanings

    BacShield, which is water-resistent when dry, imparts persistent antibacterial/antimicrobial properties to treated areas, "filling the gap" between cleanings by protecting items during use.

    Easily applied by soaking or spraying on the surface after cleaning

    • Controls the source of odors instead of covering up odors
    • Treated materials are resistant to odor and decay caused by growth of bacteria, mold and mildew

    Application Procedures

    BacShield may be used on both porous and non-porous contact surfaces such as but not limited to: wood, masonry, particle board, vinyl, metal, fiberglass, other interior and exterior surfaces. 

    BacShield may be applied to surfaces by: hand sprayer, garden sprayer, airless/ compression sprayer, cold-fogger, brush, roller, cloth, or immersion.  

    Step 1: Prepare

    Prepare your surface as directed below for maximum adhesion, effectiveness, and longevity

    • Clean the surface to be treated
      • Clean the surface to be treated with an appropriate cleaner (such as EnzyMagic 201™) to remove all dirt, mold, mildew, fungi, and any other organic matter. 
    • Dry the surface to be treated
      • Materials to be treated should be dry prior to application.
      • Substrates such as wood and wood containing products should contain less than 12% moisture prior to application. 

    Step 2: Protect

    • Add 6-9 oz of BacShield per 1-gallon of working solution 
    • Apply as a spray or mist until surface is completely covered and wet
    • Allow treatment to dry before re-coating (if desired) or covering with insulation/other building materials

    * NOTE: The normal dilution ratio is:

    • 1.5 oz Bac-Shield per 32-oz of solution 
    • 6 oz Bac-Shield per 1-gallon of solution

    *For mold & mildew prevention use 6-9 ounces of BacShield per 1-gallon of solution.  

    Directions for Home Use

    Laundry:  Apply to each load

    Method 1: Most Economical

    As an “after-wash spray treatment” for all athletic wear, clothing, linens, uniforms, textiles in general:

    • Remove laundry from washer after final spin cycle
    • Mix 6 ounces of Bac-Shield per 1-gallon of water in pump-sprayer or mix 1.5 oz. in 32 oz spray bottle
    • Spray each article with Bac-Shield solution until completely covered
    • Dry thoroughly before use

    Method 2: Most Convenient

    As a laundry additive:

    • Run laundry through entire wash cycle
    • Re-set washer to rinse cycle
    • Add Bac-Shield to fabric softener receptacle or directly onto laundry
    • Repeat rinse cycle
    • Dry laundry thoroughly

    Washer Type: Domestic/Coin Operated – Less than 30 lb capacity

                                                                               Front Load                   Top Load

    Cotton and cotton blends                                  1.75 oz / load                4 oz / load

    Nylon, Polyester & Other Synthetics                  6.5 oz / load                  15 oz / load

    Carpet, Upholstery, Drapes, Pet Bedding:  Apply monthly or as needed for odors caused by bacteria, mold, milder, or fungi

    • Apply to clean carpet or fabric 
    • Check for discoloration or water spotting in an inconspicuous area. 
      • Discoloration is not expected on fabrics where water spotting does not occur.  Leather and silk are typically prone to water spotting.
    • Small Area: 
      • Add 3 oz Bac-Shield in a 32-oz hand-held spray bottle and apply as a spray or mist at a rate of 1-gallon solution per 110 sq. ft. coverage 
    • Large Area: 
      • Mix 12 oz Bac-Shield per gallon of water in pump-up garden sprayer and apply as a spray or mist at a rate of 1-gallon solution per 540 sq. ft. surface area for carpet
    • Carpet should be cleaned regularly as recommended by carpet manufacturer
    • Allow to dry before use

    * NOTE: The normal dilution ratio is:

    • 1.5 oz Bac-Shield per 32-oz of solution 
    • 6 oz Bac-Shield per 1-gallon of solution

    The concentration of Bac-Shield can be doubled as shown above to cover twice as much area with the same amount of solution.  This is done to minimize the amount of water used to cover the same area.  

    *The normal dilution should be used when treating very porous materials and you can thoroughly dry the materials.

    Exercise Equipment, Benches, Mats, Surfaces, Protective Gear, Helmets, and Pads:

    • Apply daily to exercise equipment, surfaces and mats
    • Apply weekly or as needed for bacterial odors
        • Clean articles to be treated
        • Mix 6 oz Bac-Shield per 1-gallon of water in pump-up sprayer or Mix 1.5 oz in a 32-oz hand-held spray bottle
        • Apply as a spray, mist, or wipe with soaked cloth until surface is thoroughly damp
        • Allow to dry thoroughly before use


    Q: Can you provide some estimates for coverage on porous and non-porous surfaces?

    A: One general rule to remember is that we need to have complete coverage, so the goal is to form the 'shield'.

    For mold & mildew prevention, use 6-9 oz of BacShield per 1-gallon of concentrate.

    • MASONRY 
      • One end of the spectrum includes porous (absorptive) surfaces such as concrete or other masonry applications.
      • One gallon of solution will cover approximately 270 square feet of surface area.
    • WOOD
      • Wood (unpainted or otherwise unfinished) falls somewhere in the middle of porous and non-porous
      • One gallon of solution would treat approximately 500 square feet of surface area.
    • VINYL
      • Vinyl and other non-porous substrates can be treated at a rate of approximately 750 square feet per gallon of solution.

    Q: Does the product tend to run on vertical hard surfaces such as concrete, vinyl siding, etc.?

    A: Yes. The viscosity of the solution is very low, not much higher than water.

    Q: Would we approach it as a fog application (9 to 11 spray tip) or a paint application (15 to 17 spray tip)?

    A: A fine spray is very desirable for both coverage and to minimize runoff. Each applicator can decide which method works best for them.
