GoldShield South Africa


Will regular cleaning after using Goldshield remove the product?

No, not at all.  Goldshield ®’s covalent bonding means that the product remains active and even if the treated surface is cleaned by physical and even chemical action.

Goldshield ® is a product that:

  • Is not removed by routine cleaning
  • Enhances cleaning
  • Provides a surface that is microbiologically clean for between 24 hours and 14 days depending on the product used and the surface to which it is applied.

Does Goldshield damage surfaces like other detergents?

Many products contain both detergent and disinfectant and are termed sanitisers. Products containing powerful agents such as chlorine or more recently chlorine dioxide, have excellent microbicidal properties but can be damaging to surfaces and can have health & safety issues depending on their concentration.

If Goldshield doesn’t contain chemicals or alcohol, how can it perform?

Goldshield® is a safe to use, water-based product

Goldshield®’s unique technology differs to other technologies in that it not only kills microorganisms but also leaves a residual layer on any surface once dry. Most other formulations contain quaternary ammonium compounds (QAC) as the main biocidal active which is not capable of leaving an antimicrobial barrier once dry.

What does residual cleaning actually mean?

Goldshield® provides a protective layer that has been shown in numerous tests to remain for periods in excess of 24 hours and 90 days depending on the product used and the surface to which it is applied. Also, because Goldshield ® has a unique covalent bond, it is able to remain on the surface even if it is subsequently cleaned with normal detergents after application as cleaning is important to remove soils such as dirt and body fat. The numbers of bacteria and levels of kill will vary depending on the environment.

Goldshield®’s ability to create this protective layer after disinfection, reduces the potential for cross-contamination/infection of potentially harmful pathogens in all areas of application in our industry sectors. This will create a safer environment in a world where we are seeing more and more antibiotic resistant strains of bacteria and viral pandemics.

Goldshield®’s technology therefore provides a safer environment by providing a protective shield, wherever it is applied giving confidence that surfaces remain hygienic for days after application.

Please explain the actual science behind Goldshield?

Goldshield ® ’s technology forms a covalent bond which allows it to remain affixed to any hard or soft surface. The surface is then positively charged generated by a nitrogen molecule, which pulls in negatively charged microbes. Through a long chain carbon, this unique assembly penetrates the cytoplasmic membrane physically stabbing the cell releasing ions, denaturing proteins and causing cytoplasm to leak so the cell is then destroyed. This renders the microbe dead and incapable of any adaption.

Has Goldshield been tested against bacteria, mold and mildue?

The Goldshield formula has been 3rd party tested in 62+ studies and has been proven to be effective against bacteria, mold, mildew, and other illness causing germs.

What is the procedure to use Goldshield on surfaces?


Complete basic cleaning and disinfection using our NEW Goldshield 34 N-List disinfection wipes.


Allow all surfaces and textiles to completely dry.


Apply Goldshield 75 to all surfaces, textiles, equipment and even air handling systems.
