Diligent is a patented disinfectant that has been proven to kill viruses
for up to 28 days on a range of material including hard, non-porous
surfaces all the way to the soft, porous materials used in respirators.
DILIGENT is a product of an American company that is run by Americans
with a great desire to help our fellow citizens in this time of crisis.
Medetech’s liquid formulations (MedeSol and MedeSol MC)
have good safety records for human, animal and environmental exposure and are fully compatible with processes used in the manufacture of medical and consumer products.

Both formulations can be used in simple manufacturing procedures, and are readily scalable to industrial levels.
Industries that would immediately benefit from our formulated products...
MedeSol MC formulation in ethanol was
applied to nonwoven elements of N95 mask
in a simple soak and air dry process.
Active chlorine in MedeSol coating on N95 polypropylene nonwovens did not change over 6 months of storage    

MedeSol coated nonwoven captured and inactivated all influenza virus particles in  ASTM protocol on filtration efficacy    

MedeSol  antimicrobial coating on cotton/poly fibers killed bacteria and virus to high levels (>99.9999%) after contact times in the 3-10 min range    

MedeSol antimicrobial coating on hard surface persisted at high levels, still killing >99.9999% Staph aureus at 24 hours while Clorox bleach was completely ineffective 30 min after application    

MedeSol antimicrobial coating on hard surface was still detectable at high levels against Staph aureus at two months after application (up to 99.99999% kill )
The cost-effectiveness is well-supported by independent laboratory testing, and
makes possible many unique, high margin/high value end products and benefits.
