LAS VEGAS, Jan. 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- CES booth 37009 -- Seal Shield LLC today announced the new ALIGN RIGHT™ screen shield. The antimicrobial shields protect iPhones and iPads from scratches and inhibit the growth of microbial bacteria, mold, mildew and fungi on the products' surfaces.
According to a Stanford University study, a cell phone is covered with 18 times more bacteria than a toilet handle. Stanford doctoral student Tim Julian warns, "If you put virus on a surface, like an iPhone, about 30 percent of it will get on your fingertips, and a fair amount of it may go from your fingers to your eyes, mouth or nose, the most likely routes of infection."
The ALIGN RIGHT™ screen shield contains an antimicrobial fungistatic agent which protects the product and keeps it cleaner, greener and fresher. It is the first screen protector to include a patent pending installation frame, insuring that anyone can apply the shield to their device perfectly the first time, completely straight, without air bubbles or the need for application sprays. The ALIGN RIGHT™ is the easiest screen shield to apply and provides the most protection available in a screen protector product.
According to Seal Shield CEO, Bradley Whitchurch, "Our healthcare customers are using more touch screen devices and they are demanding solutions which not only protect those products from scratches, but also from harmful bacteria and viruses. We found the screen protectors available on the market were not only ineffective at providing antimicrobial protection; they were also difficult for the average user to install. Our shields protect the product and include a patent pending installation frame, allowing anyone to apply the screen protector easily and perfectly on the first try."
ALIGN RIGHT™ screen shields are priced from $19.99 and are available internationally through major retailers and distributors for iPhone 4, iPhone 4s, iPad and iPad2.
