A revolutionary, eco-friendly step beyond just cleaning.

  • Extends the seat fabric life
  • Reduces the need for harsh chemical cleaners
  • Protects handholds, railing, and walls from potentially harmful bacteria and odors
  • Provides first responders with a cleaner environment

How it Works

AEGIS® is a safe and effective antimicrobial technology that’s been proven to eliminate odor-causing bacteria for more than 30 years. The active ingredient in AEGIS® forms a protective coating that can molecularly bond with fabrics upon application. Bacteria are attracted to the coating’s positive charge, and upon coming into contact with the treated fibers, the odor-causing culprits are destroyed.

AEGIS® also helps protect drivers and passengers from potential bacteria buildup on hard surfaces, like railings and walls. This buildup remains on the surface if the areas are only routinely spot cleaned.
