How Does XPEL RX Work?

In the presence of moisture, the ANTIMICROBIAL SURFACE PROTECTION additive gradually releases zinc ions, which can strongly bind to cellular enzymes of the microbe while inhibiting enzyme activity in cell walls, membranes, and nucleic acids. Microbes have a negative surface charge, so zinc ions with a positive charge are drawn towards them, disturbing their electrical balance. This results in the bursting of the cell walls, destroying the microbe.
