  2. 2. I CSG BACKGROUND
  3. 3. I CSG BACKGROUNDER CSG (Coatings Specialist Group) has quickly evolved from a small commercial coatings company formed in 2005, to a global player in sustainable, environmentally-beneficial surface treatments. Today CSG’s PURETi™ and Surface Antimicrobial System™ (SAS) products and services are used to minimize the spread of disease and improve the environment by some of the world’s most prominent organizations. CSG’s client list includes: the U.S. Military, New York Yankees, U.S. Olympic Teams, Los Angeles Community College District, and over 1,200 educational facilities. To date, CSG’s unique and innovative technologies have been applied to over 50 million square feet of surface area and millions of pounds of laundry. In June 2008, CSG introduced PURETi photocatalytic surface treatments, which represent one of the 21st century’s biggest breakthroughs in commercialized green technology. Supported by 13 international patents for the formulation and production of the sustainable surface treatments, PURETi is on the cusp of helping governments and businesses around the globe improve air quality, conserve water and energy and reduce maintenance costs by up to 50 percent. A 2009 laboratory study conducted by renowned environmental engineering expert Dr. Alexander Orlov, of Stony Brook University, revealed that coating a surface with PURETi reduces the presence of harmful nitrous oxide (NOx) in the air by almost 80 percent. PURETi ultraviolet photocatalytic technology (UV-PCO) transforms surfaces into sustainable, self-cleaning, air-purifying, and odor-eliminating materials. The technology uses energy from ultraviolet light to continuously and proactively break-down all organic materials, including grime, bio-film, smog-causing green house gases, harmful volatile organic compounds (VOCs), and stubborn organic odors such as tobacco smoke or fire damage. Typically, surfaces treated with PURETi products need to be cleaned half as often and it’s twice as easy when it is done. With an efficacy of up to three years, PURETi cuts water, energy, chemicals and labor used in cleaning in half. CSG’s working relationship with franchises in the National Football League (NFL) triggered a demand for a coating that would proactively and continually combat bacteria on surfaces and fabrics throughout facilities in all of pro sports including the National Basketball Association (NBA), Major League Baseball (MLB), and National Hockey League (NHL). CSG partnered with ÆGIS Environment in 2005 to bring its patented Microbe Shield technology to CSG. With this advanced technology in hand, CSG’s research and development team created a family of antimicrobial treatments that inhibit the growth of harmful bacteria, mold, and fungi for years. The unique treatments were the first of their kind to be specifically designed for use on specific substrates, such as washable fabrics and synthetic turf systems. This unique family of antimicrobial products was turned into a comprehensive process called the Surface Antimicrobial System or SAS. CSG grabbed headlines in May 2006, when SAS was called upon to combat rising concerns about Staph and MRSA in the sports community. The thorough process eliminates 99.9% of germs and bacteria, including staph and MRSA, and protects against the future growth of harmful microbial contaminants. By 2007 CSG began offering the products on a consumer basis as a result of their growing demand for use in everyday applications. The SAS line of EPA registered antimicrobial products are safe, hypoallergenic, easy to apply and are used today in educational, athletic, and facility settings. Most recently, the SAS family of products was called upon to treat facilities with suspected cases of the H1N1 Virus (Swine Flu). w w w. c s g g r p . c o m • 1.888.510.2847

  5. 5. II S A S FA C T S H E E T Surface Antimicrobial System Plays Key Role in Proactive Defense Against Bacteria • SAS is a comprehensive process that kills 99.9% of illness-causing microorganisms and works 24/7 to inhibit the growth of a wide-array of bacteria, mold and fungi on any surface or fabric for up to three years. • SAS brand is comprised of 5 EPA registered products specifically designed for use on specific substrates: Surfaces: SurfaceAide™ 1000, SurfaceAide™ XL, SurfaceClean™ Fabrics: FabricAide ® Synthetic Turf: TurfAide™ • The Comprehensive Athletic Treatment Center (CATC) conducted a six-month study, headed by Dr. Thomas D. Kohl, MD, and found that wrestling teams that treated their mats and washable fabrics with SAS experienced significantly fewer skin aliments than teams that did not. • Over 30 million square feet applied to surfaces nationwide. • Bacteria and viruses can live on fabrics and surfaces for days and can easily transfer from surface to skin. Service and consumer products represent a long-term and comprehensive solution to the proliferation of disease, including staph infections, MRSA, Swine Influenza, SARS, Avian Influenza, Ring Worm and other pathogenic fungi. • SAS professional services currently used by high profile customers: U.S. Military, New York Yankees, franchises in the NFL, NBA, and NHL, and U.S. Olympic Teams. • Products are safe, non-toxic, hypoallergenic, and will not create adaptive microorganisms like “Super Bugs”. • Primary benefits of SAS include: long lasting infection control, odor and stain prevention, and improved longevity of the treated material. • Infections in the hospital are the fourth largest killer in America. In the U.S., two million patients contract infections in hospitals per year, and about 103,000 die as a result. This number is as many deaths as from AIDS, breast cancer and auto accidents combined. w w w. c s g g r p . c o m • 1.888.510.2847
  6. 6. II SAS ANTIMICROBIAL TECHNOLOGY
  7. 7. II SAS ANTIMICROBIAL TECHNOLOGY Understanding SAS Antimicrobial Core Technology ANTIMICROBIAL TREATMENTS Antimicrobial treatments associated with treated surfaces and goods and a wide variety of end-uses have been part of the industry for hundreds of years. The list of problems caused by microorganisms and reasons for using antimicrobials includes: 1) Prevention of microbial putrification, deterioration, and rot (preservation) of process solutions and finished goods, 2) Reducing bacteria and fungi that cause musty, mildew, and putrid odors, 3) The esthetic problems associated with mold and mildew stain, and 4) To reduce the risks associated with medical conditions that can be caused by microorganisms associated with the presence on or the transfer from medical devices. These could include risks of, infectious organism amplification in fabrics, microbial transfer from one person or site to another, or the growth of allergy stimulating organisms, their spores, body parts, or metabolic products. Concern over traditional antimicrobial technologies and their mode of action is well founded. Such technologies present risks associated with their ability to be transported onto and through the skin and uncontrolled into the environment. They are also prone to sub-lethal levels and subsequent ineffectiveness or microbial adaptation. Use of such materials in medical settings, around food processing or services, or in consumer uses requires a careful review of toxicological data, routes of contact, and risks. ÆGIS MICROBE SHIELD ® TECHNOLOGY (AEM 5700 Antimicrobial) The core of the SAS technology stems from the ÆGIS Microbe Shield technology (AEM 5700 Antimicrobial), developed 30 years ago by Dow Corning. The ÆGIS Microbe Shield Technology, by its polymeric and chemically bonded nature, provides a technological answer to the risks associated with the traditional leaching or ionizing antimicrobials. Control of microorganisms on the treated surface can be accomplished with good performance and trivial toxicological risk. The property of AEM 5700 Antimicrobial that provides for the physical contact and rupturing of the cell membranes of single-celled organisms and the association and inactivation of viruses revolves around the chemical structure of the monomer and subsequent final polymer. Contact with the oleophilic moieties of the polymer and the quaternized nitrogen of the polymer by the cell membranes of single-celled organisms causes the physical rupture and inactivation of the membrane, the inhibition and death of the target single-celled organism, and the association and inactivation of viruses. Manufacturers of a wide variety of consumer and commercial goods have evaluated the safety and utility of this treatment and used it safely and successfully for over 30 years. These include higher risk end-use materials such as: surgical drapes (the treatment is on the fenestration area next to the incision site), other medical goods, and Drypers disposable baby diapers (the treatment is on the top-sheet next to the baby’s skin). These and other consumer products such as socks and underwear have been treated and sold with this technology since 1976 with no untoward effects. w w w. c s g g r p . c o m • 1.888.510.2847
  8. 8. II SAS ANTIMICROBIAL TECHNOLOGY continued CHEMICAL PROPERTIES The active ingredient of AEM 5700 Antimicrobial is a monomer, 3-trimethoxysilylpropyl dimethyloctadecyl ammonium chloride. This material is used by dilution in water allowing for the formation of the hydroxy form of the monomer. In this form, the chemistry is both covalently and ionically bondable to receptive surfaces. On drying (hydrolysis), this monomer will homopolymerize forming an infinite polymer. The AEM-5700 Antimicrobial as an organofunctional silane bonds to surfaces and then to itself to produce treatments that kill a variety of one-celled organisms. The basic chemistry has been well described in peer-reviewed publications and patents. The foundation paper by Speier and Malek is the most descriptive of these bonding and activity phenomena. (Attached) This chemistry and its bonding capacity allow it to have unusual levels of durability and facilitate the transformation of a material into an antimicrobial contact surface. Silane Quaternary Ammonium Compounds In the mid-1960’s, researchers discovered that antimicrobial organofunctional silanes could be chemically bound to receptive substrates by what were believed to be Si-O linkages. The method was described as orienting the organofunctional silane in such a way that hydrolyzable groups on the silicon atom were hydrolyzed to silanols and the silanols formed chemical bonds with each other and the substrate. The resultant surface modification, when an antimicrobial moiety such as a quaternary nitrogen was included, provided for the antimicrobial to be oriented away from the surface 1. The attachment of this chemical to surfaces appears to involve two processes. First and most important is a very rapid process that coats the substrate with the cationic species one molecule deep. This is an ion exchange process by which the cation of the silane quaternary ammonium compound replaces protons from water on the surface. It has long been known that most surfaces in contact with water generate negative electrical charges at the interface between water and the surface. This mechanism is further supported by data generated with a radioactive silane quaternary ammonium compound. During the treatment, depletion of the radioactivity from solution was almost immediate by an amount corresponding to that sufficient to cover the surface one layer deep, even on surfaces that contain no functionality. Similar results are published for many organic quaternary ammonium compounds. The second process is unique to materials such as silane quaternary ammonium compounds that have silicon functionality enabling them to polymerize, after they have coated the surface, to become almost irremovable even on surfaces with which they cannot react, covalent bonding to that surface will also occur and it is also possible to have intermolecular polymerization2. w w w. c s g g r p . c o m • 1.888.510.2847
  9. 9. II SAS ANTIMICROBIAL TECHNOLOGY continued Works of Abbott, Isquith, Roth, and Walters 3,4,5,6 further elaborate the antimicrobial utility of surfaces modified with silane quaternary ammonium compounds. The specific utility of 3-(trimethoxysilyl) propyldimethyloctadecyl ammonium chloride (ÆGIS™ Antimicrobial, formerly SYLGARD® Treatment based or AEM 5700® Antimicrobial Agent) was described in their work and subsequent works of Gettings and Triplett7, Speier and Malek8, Hayes and White9, McGee, Malek, and White10, and White and Olderman11. DURABILITY Durability of any medical device, textile product, nonwoven wipes, building materials, furnishings, or building surface modifying treatment has importance at many phases of a products life. This includes at the time of manufacture, during transport and storage, during use, and during disposal. The ÆGIS Microbe Shield Technology (AEM 5700 Antimicrobial) provides an extraordinary profile of durability, safety, and benefits in use that are well documented. Current uses and the extensive laboratory and “real-world” database provide a high degree of confidence in the appropriateness for the use of this treatment on goods that contact the skin and are used on medical devices. Part of this extensive database is discussed here and focuses on the durability of the treatment during storage of treated goods. In support of the U.S. EPA registration (EPA Reg. # 68881-1) for this treatment a series of durability and shelf life tests were done to substantiate the durability of the treatment. The most significant of these data are presented in the referenced papers and available on request. CSG has registered their ready-to-use antimicrobial formulations based on the ÆGIS Microbe Shield Technology (AEM-5700 Antimicrobial) with the US EPA (EPA Reg. # 83135-1) and State EPA organizations. Our support data show clearly the equivalency to the substrates that were used in the US EPA AEM 5700 Antimicrobial registration testing. Along with the development of antimicrobial products, CSG incorporated a special spray technique that allows its application on virtually any surface in facilities ranging from sports facilities, training and weight rooms, schools, to hospitals and clinics with minimal disruption of daily activities. w w w. c s g g r p . c o m • 1.888.510.2847

A: SurfaceClean is a powerful disinfectant specifically formulated to work in synergy with SurfaceAide treated surfaces. It is important to disinfect surfaces before applying SurfaceAide, as this first step will eliminate 99.9% of bacteria and germs on the surface and will allow SurfaceAide to work effectively. SurfaceClean is effective against a broad spectrum of microorganisms, including the H1N1 (Swine Flu) virus. • Q: After treating the surface with SurfaceAide, do I still have to clean the surface and if so, are there restrictions on what types of cleaning chemicals I can use? A: Yes, any surface treated with SurfaceAide products will still need to be cleaned on a regular basis, but application of harsh chemicals will not be necessary. SurfaceClean, the cleaner/ disinfectant developed by CSG, was designed to work in synergy with SurfaceAide treated surfaces and equipment. By cleaning the SurfaceAide treated surface, the antimicrobial is able to effectively and continuously control the growth of harmful contamination. w w w. c s g g r p . c o m • 1.888.510.2847
  28. 28. II S A S TA L K I N G P O I N T S continued • Q: How are SurfaceAide products applied? A: The preferred method of applying SurfaceAide 1000 is through trained and certified applicators, who use an electrostatic sprayer. This ensures complete coverage of the antimicrobial on the surface. Applying SurfaceAide 1000 and SurfaceAide XL yourself can be done through various methods, including spraying and wiping the product onto surfaces. • Q: Is SAS a cost effective solution? A: Yes. To be guaranteed the same efficacy and 24/7 protection of SAS, surfaces and fabrics would have to use heavy chemical disinfectant every time a surface or fabric was touched round the clock. The material and labor cost savings alone makes SAS a sound financial decision. • Q: How do I treat my fabrics with SAS? A: To treat all washable fabrics you would use FabricAide. To apply FabricAide simply pour 4 oz. into a load of clean laundry during the rinse cycle. After the load of laundry is dried, an extremely durable bond will be formed to the garment providing active antimicrobial protection against the odors, stains and discoloration caused by bacteria, mold, fungi and mildew. • Q: How long will the antimicrobial protection in FabricAide last? A: One rinse cycle with FabricAide provides antimicrobial protection on your fabrics for up to 30 washes. • Q: With what types of fabric can you use FabricAide? A: FabricAide can be used with any type of commercial fabric available on the market. • Q: How can I treat my synthetic turf field with TurfAide? A: There are various methods of applying TurfAide to synthetic turf fields. Treatments can come as TurfAide OEM applications where the antimicrobial is applied at the factory or as topical applications onto the field. • Q: Can I apply TurfAide myself? A: Self-application depends on the TurfAide treatment being applied. The long-lasting treatments of TurfAide 2 and TurfAide 4 must be applied by CSG certified applicators due to EPA regulations. However, the entry level maintenance program of TurfD involves training of a local field manager on the proper application technique so that subsequent applications may be self-applied. w w w. c s g g r p . c o m • 1.888.510.2847

III P U R E T I FA C T S H E E T PURETi™ Green Tech Plays Key Role in Environmental & human health Issues • A laboratory study conducted by renowned environmental engineering expert Professor Alexander Orlov, Stony Brook University, revealed that coating a surface with PURETi will reduce the presence of harmful nitrogen oxides (NOx) in the air by almost 80%. • Dr. Orlov received his Ph.D. in Chemistry from Cambridge University. Dr. Orlov is an Assistant Professor in the Materials Science & Engineering Department at Stony Brook University in New York. He also works as an advisor to the British government on nanotechnology and public policy. • NOx emissions is ground level ozone, which causes damage to human lung tissue and lung function. • According to the EPA, roughly one out of every three people in the United States is at a higher risk of experiencing ozone-related health effects. • Aside from breaking-down harmful air pollution, such as NOx, PURETi transforms surfaces into self-cleaning materials that need to be cleaned half has often. • When using PURETi, the water, energy, and harmful chemicals used in normal cleaning maintenance of windows, building facades, cement, and metal is reduced by at least 50%. • Product line currently consists of 3 products: PURETi Clear (for glass), PURETi Clean (for all non-glass surfaces) PURETi Fresh (for fabrics). • When used indoors, PURETi can break down air pollutants tied to Sick Building Syndrome, including volatile organic compounds (VOCs) produced by fumes from cleaning chemicals and formaldehyde from new office furniture and equipment. • PURETi products are registered with the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA), certified by the National Science Foundation (NSF), and have the Scientific Certification Systems (SCS) Indoor Advantage Gold certification. • PURETi’s SCS certification makes it an Environmentally Preferable Product and point worthy in the LEED program of the U.S. Green Building Council. w w w. c s g g r p . c o m • 1.888.510.2847
  31. 31. III PURETi TECHNOLOGY
  32. 32. III PURETi TECHNOLOGY Understanding PURETi Core Technology: Ultra Violet Photocatalysis (UV-PCO) Photosynthesis is the natural process of light energy hitting plants and triggering the creation of organic matter. Plants combine light energy from the sun, hydrogen from water, carbon dioxide and nitrogen from ground fertilizer to create the organic molecules of life. Photocatalysis is the opposite of photosynthesis. It is a natural process whereby light energy hits a mineral and triggers a chemical process that results in the breakdown or decomposition of organic matter. UV-PCO (ultra violet photocatalysis) is a technology that accelerates the natural decomposition of organic matter. By definition, photocatalysis is the acceleration of a photoreaction in the presence of a catalyst. A catalyst is a substance that accelerates or speeds up a chemical reaction without being used up in that chemical reaction. In UV-PCO, light energy from the sun or fluorescent lamps energizes a mineral called anatase titanium dioxide (TiO2) and the natural chemical breakdown of organic molecules such as grime, bio-film, and VOCs is accelerated. The TIO2 is not used up in the process, so the UV-PCO process can continue to breakdown organic molecules over-and-over again until only harmless gas remains. There are four basic components that must be present in order for UV-PCO to proactively and continuously break-down organic matter: TiO2, light, water vapor (always present in the air as humidity), and air flow. When light energy from either the sun or artificial fluorescent light hits a PURETi treated substrate, the photocatalytic process is activated and passing water molecules are turned into hydroxyl radicals. The hydroxyl radical is one of the most powerful scrubbing agents in nature. It is two-to-three times stronger than 100% chlorine in its oxidative power or ability to break up organic molecules. The hydroxyl radicals generated in the PURETi photocatalytic process continually attack and break up all organic molecules in its proximity. Organic molecules, whether they are part of grime, bio-film, oils, or VOCs, get oxidized or burned up turning into water and carbon dioxide. This process occurs in a billionth of a second and continues as long as light, humidity, PURETi and air flow are present. w w w. c s g g r p . c o m • 1.888.510.2847
  33. 33. III PURETi TECHNOLOGY continued PURETi UV-PCO technology is the world’s most advanced. The discovery of UV-PCO technology over thirty years ago has resulted in 6,000 patents and 12 global conferences on the use of photocatalytic TiO2 to treat air and water pollution. While 99.9% of all the patents, academic research, and commercial activity related to UV-PCO are categorized as the dry process or generation 1 UV-PCO, PURETi is the only advanced wet process or third generation UV-PCO technology available. CSG’s PURETi UV-PCO technology is supported by 3 owned U.S. Patents and legal rights to an additional 10 patents. PURETi UV-PCO technology is commercialized under three main products: PURETi Clear specially developed for windows, solar panels, LED screens and polycarbonate surfaces. PURETi Clean which forms a durable, ultra-thin invisible film that oxidizes organic particles creating self-cleaning surfaces on buildings and facades. PURETi Fresh specifically developed for textiles and fabrics to promote odor elimination. w w w. c s g g r p . c o m • 1.888.510.2847
