I came across KBF99 products when I was searching for a matching grooming set. KBF99 consists of a range of products that are revolutionary to your horses health. They prevent infection and the reinfection of Strangles, E.Coli, Ringworm and Mycotoxin.
KBF99 has been tested by Coventry University using the standard test for Anti Microbial Activity. Laboratory tests resulted in KBF99 material killing 99% of the bacteria test culture. Any reduction of harmful bacteria and fungus in the stable environment assists in reducing the chances of the diseases being transmitted from horse to horse. The KBF99 product range has been developed to help protect and safeguard horses and in some cases humans from contracting these and other conditions.
The science behind the technology:
KBF99 coats the surface of plastic with molecular strands (tiny spikes or swords).It is also rich in Nitrogen molecules that carry a positive charge. These attract the negatively charged membranes of Bacteria, Fungi, Algae and Mycotoxins. The spikes rupture the membrane, killing the cell. The positive and negative charges then clash and the cell is blown apart.
I ordered my set from a UK website called Thermatex who are official resellers of KBF99. Here is what I got:
FLEXIBLE BUCKET(14 ltr shallow): With the added bonuses of being impossible to crack and hand holes too small for hooves to be caught up in, the buckets also come laced with the KBF99 additive for Bacteria and Fungus killing. +
