FAQs


    Yes! We changed our product line name from Nanoseptic to Nanotouch. Why? Because we want people to know that are products are supposed to be touched. We also redesigned the look to be more streamlined to fit into any environment and complement any aesthetic.

    The effectiveness of our products is critical to our customers’ success and satisfaction. Nanotouch Self-Cleaning Surfaces have been tested extensively by independent, EPA, FDA and GLP compliant laboratories. Additionally, the U.S. Navy validated its efficacy after six months of rigorous testing. Other independent studies have been conducted overseas at the Korea Research Institute (South Korea), the King Abdul-Aziz University Research Center (Saudi Arabia) and Acumen Scientific (Malaysia). NanoTouch Materials also received a $2 million grant after a 9 month vetting process by university scientists.

    The Nanotouch surface continuously oxidizes organic contaminants at the microscopic level. Large scale dirt must still be removed to allow the surface to do its job. This is similar to disinfectants, which require surfaces to be cleaned before the disinfectant can be effective.

    We recommend replacing facility touch point skins every 90 days (quarterly). In some high traffic applications they may need to be replaced more often. Mats, mousepads and tissue box covers should be replaced annually. Nothing gets used up or expires, so the products' shelf life is virtually unlimited. Product life is dependent on actual physical wear.

    Nanotouch surfaces are not affected by traditional non-abrasive cleaners. We recommend wiping the surface with a microfiber cloth and water to remove large-scale contaminants. Do not use abrasive cleaners or cleaning utensils which might compromise the Nanotouch surface.

    We recommend replacing Peel & Stick Touchpoints and Slide-on Sleeves every 90 days and the other products (such as counter mats and mouse pads) every 12 months. However, if the wrap pattern or text on Peel & Stick Touchpoints become worn or faded, replace sooner. If any of the any edges begin to peel, that's also a good indicator that the product should be replaced.

    Our products are recyclable through Terracycle.

    Their Office Supplies - Zero Waste Box™ program covers both our Peel & Stick Touchpoints and our silicone Slide-On Sleeves. Because the footprint of our products is very small, we encourage you to use the Office Supplies - Zero Waste Box™ for other qualifying recyclables as well. You might be surprised just how many you have!

    Our silicone Slide-On Sleeves can also be recycled through Terracycle's Plastic Packaging - Zero Waste Box™ if the rest of your recyclables are a better fit for that program.

    Our mission is to provide safer, greener approaches to cleaning which is why we use nanotechnology instead of toxins. In today’s regulatory environment, only EPA registered products, which are all classified as pesticides, can claim effectiveness against any type of germ. Instead of taking the traditional approach of using stronger chemicals and toxins, we focused on a new generation of smart materials that clean themselves. We also recognize the value of traditional disinfectants so we made sure Nanotouch products would be compatible with these chemicals, working as a “cleaning multiplier” to create a higher level of clean that is visible and works 24/7.
