What exactly is elemental silver?

Before applying colloidal silver externally or taking it, it is useful to know what it is. This is especially important because there is always confusion and misunderstanding about this. This may also be due to the fact that colloid chemistry is a very complex subject and the term colloid has changed over time. Therefore, colloidal silver is not a silver salt or any other silver compound, even if this is unfortunately repeatedly claimed.
What is important to remember is that colloidal silver is always equated with elemental silver.cientific point of view, colloidal silver is a liquid dispersion of elemental silver or a liquid dispersion of hardly soluble silver compounds.

7-Tage-Langzeitwirkungarseptum Longtime unique high-tech float, unique and tested elemental micro-raw material gives a new type of pore-free surface protection with a safe long-lasting protection.
We achieve this through a unique, uniform particle size distribution, known as a matrix in technical terms, of the micro raw material particles. Due to a special high-technology in the production of the micro raw materials, no oversized grains are created, so that no new and unique bacteria, virus nests and fungal particles can form in between. 

ECO Blattarseptum Longtime contains no alcohol as an ingredient, as well as no hydrogen peroxides and hypochlorides. This results in a high property value protection and is characterised by a homogeneous, pore-free closed surface.
arseptum Longtime can be used on practically all surfaces.

Other surface protection in comparison

Surface protection with long-term effect (based on nanosilver)

Nanosilver as a surface protection, these are the smallest, elementary silver particles, which are smaller than 100 nanometres.
Nanosilver consists of only about 15 atoms and has a diameter of just under one to about five nanometres. That is why we also speak of nanosilver. A nanometre is one thousandth of a micrometre and a micrometre in turn is one thousandth of a millimetre. For a better understanding of particle size, one can consider that bacteria with a size of 200 to 80,000 nanometres are 40 to 16,000 times larger than a silver colloid particle. 

Particles of this kind are already used in wound dressings and plasters, cosmetics or dermatics for skin diseases or in special functional clothing. The silver ions remain on the skin surface: they are not absorbed and form an ion film on the skin. This is supposed to destroy the cell structure of the bacteria, which is made up of proteins, and hinder their metabolism. This is supposed to prevent the spreading and stop the growth of germs. Nano-particles are supposed to work better than micro-silver particles because of their small size. However, they are so small that they are suspected of being absorbed by the body. In the process, they could potentially damage cells and other protein structures and cause as yet unforeseeable consequential damage.

Surface protection with silicon dioxide (nanoparticles can occur)

Nanosilica etc. – The defence mechanism in the intestine is awakened.
As part of the National Research Programme "Opportunities and Risks of Nanomaterials" (NRP 64), it was discovered that these particles are able to activate certain immune cells. "We have shown that resting dendritic cells are stimulated in contact with nanosilica and set in motion an inflammation-like reaction," says Nägeli. Her results make us sit up and take notice, because the dendritic cells play a decisive role in the immune system of the intestine: they maintain the dynamic balance between defence reactions and tolerance. The dendritic cells are significantly involved in the immune system's fight against pathogens and foreign bodies. But they also coordinate the benevolent response to food components or representatives of the normal intestinal flora.
As the researchers have shown in experiments with mouse cell cultures, the dendritic cells take up the nanosilica into their cell interior. This wakes them up from their sleep. They begin to secrete a certain inflammation-active signalling molecule. The researchers do not know whether such processes might also shift the immunological balance of the human gut towards increased defence. But their findings could explain the observation that inflammatory bowel diseases spread when more people consume convenience foods.

Surface protection with benzalkonium chloride and sodium pyrithione Polycondensates with long-term effects

Benzalkonium chloride is a mixture of alkylbenzyldimethylammonium chlorides (ABDAC) whose alkyl part consists of C8 to C18 chains. It is an active ingredient known primarily for its disinfectant and preservative effects and belongs to the group of quaternary ammonium compounds.
Quaternary ammonium compound with surface disinfecting properties, used as an antiseptic for inflammations in the mouth and throat and as a disinfectant and preservative in eye drops and nasal sprays. Benzalkonium chloride is not very effective against fungi, spores are resistant. Side effects include local irritation and allergic reactions.
Salts (quaternary ammonium salts) or bases that have nitrogen as a cation with 4 similar or dissimilar organic residues. Quaternary ammonium compounds are used as disinfectants and preservatives because they attach strongly to anion-active moieties, adsorb to the cytoplasmic membrane of microorganisms and interfere with enzyme systems.

Surface protection with alcohol

Alcohol with multidisinfectant-resistant effect. 
Hand gels should only be used as a last resort and as a short-term temporary measure," said the scientist. In the long term, they could have potentially disastrous consequences. Even if 99.9 per cent of all bacteria were killed, thousands could still remain alive after disinfection.
Recent research shows that the surviving bacteria are themselves highly dangerous pathogens and can increase in number," Kemp explains. They would be resistant to alcohol and thus potentially far more harmful. He warned of a possible "Armageddon situation": In addition to antibiotic-resistant bacteria, multi-disinfectant-resistant bacteria could also emerge, which would pose a risk even for routine operations.

More harm than good

This means that the routine use of disinfectants could ultimately do us more harm than good." Even though people around the world have been advised to use these alcohol-based products during the pandemic, washing hands regularly with soap is a better way to protect yourself and others from coronavirus infection, Kemp said.
Moreover, it has still not been proven that the products actually kill the virus on the skin. Andrew Kemp's research results were published in the "American Journal of Biomedical Science and Research" and will also be presented at an international conference on antibiotic resistance in October.

Long-term surface protection with titanium dioxide and silver chloride

Titanium dioxide and silver chloride as biocide for impregnation eliminates > 99.99% of human coronavirus 229E. It has been tested according to ISO 20743 (anti-bacterial effect) and ISO 18184 (antimicrobial effect).

As early as 2010, Swiss and French scientists discovered that nano-titanium dioxide can trigger similar processes in human cells as other highly toxic substances, e.g. asbestos - according to Amir Yazdi from the University of Lausanne in the scientific journal PNAS. Both substances trigger inflammatory reactions and lead to high oxidative stress, which can damage both tissue and genetic material (DNA) (5).
It is therefore possible that nanoparticles, which have now been used more and more frequently for several years, could also contribute to the ever-increasing number of chronic lung diseases.

Titanium dioxide – non-toxic or harmful

Until today, however, it can be read almost everywhere that titanium dioxide is non-toxic and is excreted unchanged.
Another study once again disproves this view. Researchers from the French National Institute for Agricultural Research (INRA) report in the journal Nature (January 2017) that when titanium dioxide is ingested orally, benign tumours initially develop, which could then develop into malignant tumours. They had mixed titanium dioxide into the drinking water of rats for 100 days - in the doses that are ingested by humans every day through food and cosmetic products. 

Titanium dioxide accumulates in the body

Earlier studies by the International Agency for Research on Cancer had shown that inhaling titanium dioxide was carcinogenic. This is because the particles can enter the bloodstream through the lungs and travel with the blood to the liver, spleen, kidneys, heart and even the brain.
Even four weeks after inhalation, the nanoparticles were still present in the organs in the same quantities as on the first day, which indicates that the substance accumulates in the body and cannot be excreted so easily.

Titanium dioxide damages the intestine and weakens the immune system

However, the current study is the first to look at the cancer potential of the substance when ingested orally. In it, the researchers found that titanium dioxide is absorbed by the intestine and absorbed into the bloodstream. With the blood, the substance now reaches all parts of the body. Precancerous lesions develop first in the intestine after regular titanium dioxide intake. At the same time, the substance weakens the immune system, so that one also becomes much more susceptible to all other diseases.
The regular intake of titanium dioxide is associated with an increased risk of chronic inflammatory intestinal processes and cancer development. After only one week, the titanium dioxide could be detected in the immune cells of the intestinal mucosa. The number of special immune cells (the regulatory T cells), which normally fight inflammation, was noticeably reduced after a short time. After 100 days, not only was a clear inflammation of the intestinal mucosa recognisable, but also the first preneoplastic lesions (precursors).

Surface protection with chlorine and sodium hypochlorite

Chlorine and sodium hypochlorite, what are the potential effects of chlorine and sodium hypochlorite on human health?

Above permissible exposure limits, human exposure to chlorine gas can lead to local effects on the upper respiratory tract due to the corrosive effect of chlorine, and such a risk is mainly associated with occupational exposure.With regard to human and animal exposure to chlorine in drinking water, the WHO report states that there are no known particular adverse effects from treatment.Chlorine is not a problem with regard to mutagenicity and carcinogenicity, and none of the chlorine by-products studied to date are carcinogenic at concentrations commonly found in drinking water. In an exceptionally long toxicity study over 7 generations in rats, no difference was found with regard to the occurrence of malignant tumours in animals consuming drinking water with a chlorine content of 100 mg/l and the control animals.However, there is still debate about bladder cancer, although the evidence for a link remains unclear despite its causal relationship. The Scientific Committee on Health and Environmental Risks (SCHER) of DG HEALTH (of the EU Commission) supported the conclusion that there is currently no evidence of developing reproductive toxicity from sodium hypochlorite based on the available database on hypochlorite and chlorine. In the meantime, it has been reported that under certain circumstances, asthma can be triggered by exposure to chlorinated water via the by-products of chloramines, especially in young children, although the scientific evidence is not conclusive that swimming in recreational pools increases the risk of childhood asthma. 
Cases of skin rashes have also been linked to exposure to chlorine and hypochlorite, but all these factors have not yet been discussed in recent reference reports. 
There have been some associations with skin rashes, although the evidence has not been discussed in consensus reference documents.

What are the risks of chlorine and sodium hypochlorite to the environment?

Sodium hypochlorite is very toxic to aquatic organisms. However, because the substance is extremely reactive, sodium hypochlorite that enters household wastewater reacts with organic matter and is eliminated before it even reaches the environment. Chlorine also does not persist in the atmosphere. 

UV-C Strahlen

Surface protection Disinfection UV-C rays

UVUV-C rays Federal Office for Radiation Protection (BfS) advises caution when using UV-C disinfection devices.

The Federal Office for Radiation Protection (BfS) advises caution when using UV-C disinfection devices to combat the coronavirus SARS-Cov-2. Since UV radiation can damage the skin and eyes and has been proven to be carcinogenic, UV-C disinfection devices should generally only be used in such a way that no people are exposed to the radiation. This also applies to devices that emit short-wave UV-C, also called "FAR-UVC".
