Droom an online used car transactional platform has launched a new Corona Shield service which is essentially an anti-microbial surface protection treatment that claims to make vehicles ‘virus-proof’. The anti-microbial treatment claims to be effective for up to four months for droplet-based viruses. 

The Corona Shield treatment is available at the following introductory prices:-

The brand says that the treatment is proven to be effective against SARS and other droplet-based viruses but does not mention if it particularly works on the novel Coronavirus Disease as its name suggests that it should protect against the droplet-based COVID-19 virus. Droom Corona Shield treatment for automobiles claims to create an extra level of hygiene with a microbial reduction rate of 99.99%. The treatment uses a polymerized bonding technology that is effective against harmful microbes and works by killing and inhibiting microorganisms such as Bacteria, Algae, Yeast, Mold and Mildew. 

The Droom Corona Shield treatment uses Aegis Microbe Shield technology which is a full-spectrum antimicrobial liquid formulation that has claims of long term durability and stability. The active ingredient in the Aegis Microbe Shield forms a protective layer that bonds with the coated surface on a molecular level and is positively charged. Bacteria which are negatively charged by nature are attracted toward these surfaces and upon contact get electrocuted and their cell membrane ruptures killing them instantly. The charge-disruption method of killing the bacteria further helps eliminate odour and stains by breaking down the microbial cells through a process called Lysis. 

Microban International an ISO certified anti-microbial solutions provider which has developed the Aegis Microbe Shield technology used by Droom in their Corona Shield treatment DOES NOT currently claim to have any proof of any anti-viral properties or protection against the COVID-19, when incorporated into any product.
