Foss Manufacturing To Be Featured on 21st Century Business Television Series May 12, 2012

HAMPTON, NH (May 11, 2012) — Multi-Media Productions (USA), Inc. is pleased to announce that Foss Manufacturing will be featured on 21st Century Business on the Fox Business Network (as paid programming).

According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) MRSA was responsible for an estimated 94,000 invasive life-threatening infections and close to 19,000 deaths (more than AIDS) in 2005 and deaths from bacterial infections are on the rise. Healthcare workers are also at risk.

Foss Manufacturing introduces Fosshield® – a revolutionary new antimicrobial technology made in the USA. Studies have shown, the patented Fosshield® technology inhibits the growth of bacteria, mold, mildew, and fungus in a variety fabrics, polymers, and rubber materials with long-lasting protection.

Unlike antimicrobial agents that are applied via topical chemical coatings or include actual metals, the patented, non-leaching, and ion-based antimicrobial technology in Fosshield® is blended right into the fabric, polymer, or rubber.

As the active antibacterial agent in the SpectraShield™ 9500 N95 surgical respirator mask, Fosshield® was found to be safe when used in the breathing zone (offgassing) and against the skin (non-transdermal). The FDA tests of the mask also found Fosshield® technology to be non-leaching, while posing no risk to users or the environment. The SpectraShield™ mask has FDA 510K clearance and NIOSH approval, making it the first and only antibacterial respirator mask of its kind to achieve FDA clearance in the United States.

What’s more, Fosshield® is made from Foss Manufacturing’s own Eco-fi™ fiber, which is originated from 100 percent post-consumer recycled plastic bottles.

Because of its versatility, Fosshield® is uniquely suited for a broad range of applications in addition to healthcare, including: apparel and footwear, home and hospitality, filtration, educational facilities, wall coverings, and transportation.

JL Haber, vice president of programming at Multi Media Productions, added, “Foss Manufacturing is a leader in their industry. They are a natural fit for our show. We are excited to have them as a guest on our program.”
