Paramount Management Group, based in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, says it has developed an anti-bacterial spray that will protect touch surfaces on ATMs for 90 days. Paramount says it is the first large scale ATM operator to use environmentally responsible disinfectant and groundbreaking antimicrobial products.

In a statement, Paramount said the product is produced by biotech firm ViaClean Technologies. Called the BIOPROTECTUs System, it encompasses an array of EPA registered and FDA compliant technologies that disinfect and inhibit the growth and spread of problematic bacteria, fungi, algae, mold and viruses, as well as providing long-term antimicrobial protection for metal, plastic and textile surfaces.

“Right now, we are living through a period of uncertainty, with cardholders unsure of the safety of payment devices because of the possible transmission of COVID-19. Through the application of this system, we aim to diminish some of those fears by providing access to ATMs that have been disinfected and protected against viruses, bacteria, fungi, algae and mold,” said Paramount’s chief development and marketing officer Jorge Fernandez.

Paramount was expected to complete the initial application of the BIOPROTECTUs System by April 15 and reapply the product every 90 days, or sooner if warranted, in order to actively protect and inhibit the growth and spread of harmful bacteria and viruses.

An integral component in the BIOPROTECTUs system is BIOPROTECT, a groundbreaking, water-based antimicrobial product, that when applied to both porous and non-porous surfaces creates a durable protective shield that provides long-term antimicrobial protection that prevents the growth and spread of problematic bacteria, viruses, fungi, algae and mold.
