Jetcraft first to offer MicroShield 360 antimicrobial treatment by F/LIST
Leading business jet sales and acquisitions company, Jetcraft, is the launch customer for interiors specialist F/LIST’s Microshield 360 treatment program, which protects against SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) and other pathogens that may otherwise live on cabin surfaces.
Additionally, Jetcraft is the first aircraft dealer using MicroShield 360. The coating system is available for all in-service aircraft purchased through the company, and will be applied to all eligible aircraft within Jetcraft’s owned inventory, beginning July 14.
Chad Anderson, president at Jetcraft, says: “MicroShield 360 is one of many ways we are expanding our offering to meet clients’ needs during Covid-19. We are pleased to be the first aircraft dealer implementing the treatment, so buyers can be confident their health is protected when purchasing directly from Jetcraft.
“Our first two jets, a Bombardier Challenger 604 and Global 5000, were treated by F/LIST on July 14. I was highly impressed by the speed of the application, which only took two hours from start to finish for a whole year of protection.”
MicroShield 360 is an antimicrobial coating system which is colorless, odorless and safe for all aircraft interiors. Owners can be reassured that it is eco-friendly, non-toxic and hypoallergenic, and won’t cause any deterioration to their aircraft cabin. The interior application takes place in two parts: an initial disinfectant to sterilize the cabin, followed by the application of MicroShield 360, which forms a barrier of nanoscopic spikes. The spikes physically destroy germs by piercing the cell membranes, preventing them from adhering to and contaminating a surface.
An electrostatic sprayer is used to apply MicroShield 360, generating a molecular bond with the cabin surface which is equal to 40x the pull of gravity. As a result, the system is extremely abrasion resistant. Combined with regular cleaning, the treatment will ensure all surfaces are effectively self-disinfecting for 12+ months.
Sean Johnson, CEO, F/LIST Canada, adds: “In the present climate, it pays to be fastidious about your health and the cleanliness of your environment, particularly whilst traveling. With F/List partnering with Jetcraft we can bring MicroShield 360 directly to new aircraft owners, underlining how safe, controlled and comfortable travel can be when flying privately. F/List has long been known for innovative technologies that upgrade the cabin experience, and MicroShield 360 falls perfectly into that category.”
