Volvo PermaSafe Dual Stage Sanitization
PermaSafe SHIELD™ is applied after PermaSafe CLEAN and creates an invisible shield that inhibits the growth of microorganisms and helps prevent the growth and spread of bacteria. Unlike conventional disinfectants and antimicrobials, SHIELD doesn’t kill germs by poisoning them with toxic chemicals, but rather via a patented “electro-mechanical process,” enabling it to last and remain antimicrobial for months or more.
Volvo has completed extensive research on the various vehicle cleaning products to find the optimal one for use in our vehicles for the purposes of regular cleaning and disinfecting.
The PermaSafe system was specifically designed for use in motor vehicles and is formulated without the use of harmful chemicals. PermaSafe Protective Coatings is the maker of a unique vehicle disinfection and antimicrobial surface and air protection system. The PermaSafe System meets the CDC’s criteria for use against SARS-CoV-2, the novel coronavirus that causes the disease COVID-19 and uses no harmful chemicals
Upon application, the PermaSafe System provides a spectrum of protection:
- Eliminates up to 99.999% of bacteria and viruses
- Eliminates odors and allergens
- Destroys and inhibits growth of mold, mildew and other microbes
- Treated interior surfaces can remain antimicrobial and virtually “self-sanitizing” for months or longer under certain conditions
- Sanitizes HVAC systems and ductwork
- Purifies passenger cabin air
