How WatSafe™ Total Surface Protection Works

Spray-on coating is applied using a sprayer that creates a fine mist that covers every surface

Particles in WatSafe™ link together as it dries forming a dense web of nanoparticles

Coating creates a covalent bond with the surface of materials and dries ultra-thin, flexible, and transparent

Hydrophobic properties create a surface that repels dirt and stains making the surface easy to clean

Common Contaminants Found in Locker Rooms

The most common culprit found in most locker rooms is Staph, but other illnesses such as the common cold, flu, athlete’s foot, and ringworm can also be spread in the changing rooms.

Staph Infection

Short for Staphylococcus, this bacterium causes minor infections but has the potential to develop into something more serious. It’s hazardous for those with compromised immune systems and can lead to sepsis or bloodstream infections.  A Staph infection typically begins on the skin and soft tissue. It often presents as a red swollen hair follicle or a skin boil that is red, warm, and painful. It’s very contagious and can develop quickly.

MRSA or Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus

MRSA stands for Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus. It is a strain of Staph that is resistant to certain antibiotics. It’s much more challenging to treat and can lead to severe complications.  Because athletes often get scrapes, cuts, and other injuries, this creates the opportunity for a nasty infection to enter the player’s body. Although these infections are invisible to the naked eye, they have the potential to cause deep painful abscesses that require surgical draining.

Mold

Mold is a fungus that thrives in warm and wet environments, making the locker room shower a perfect place to grow. It can be tracked inside shoes and work its way into the tile and grout. There are many different types of molds, some of which are considered toxic and can cause breathing issues if not dealt with properly. Mold can also cause problems for people who have allergies or asthma. They may experience sneezing, wheezing, itchy eyes, or irritated skin.

Athletes Foot

Athlete’s Foot, aka. Tinea Pedis is a fungal infection lurks in warm wet places like locker rooms, communal showers, and pool decks. It starts as a scaly rash on the skin between the toes and can spread across the foot, causing itching, stinging, and burning.  Plus, it’s highly contagious. If one athlete on the team has an active athlete’s foot infection and they don’t take the proper precautions, it can spread quickly to other teammates.
