VIRUS

PROTECTED PRODUCT

TNS ADDITIVE IN ACTION!

Representation of the virus with its lipid bilayer and DNA/RNA

TNS additive attracts and binds to the virus surface

The additive breaks the lipid bilayer, inhibiting viral DNA / RNA replication and the virus attachment to or fusion with cells.

THE TECHNOLOGY BEHIND TNS ANTIVIRAL PRODUCTS

Silver, zinc, copper, and nitrogen compounds technologies focus on attracting the virus with the opposite load, making it bind to groups present on the surface of viral glycoproteins, preventing the virus from binding to the host cell, blocking its replication.

Most TNS technologies also contain natural stabilizers that interact with these viral glycoproteins, favoring the antiviral and antimicrobial activity of the main agent.
