NordShield® Brilliant series enters the Asian market

Espoo, 18 November 2021 – Nordic BioTech Group Ltd, marketed as NordShield® ("NordShield®") is pleased to announce its disinfectant series "Brilliant" to be introduced to the Asian market through Mantap Perintis Sdn Bhd. ("Mantap")

NordShield® has entered a partnership with Kuala Lumpur based Mantap to initiate the market entry of NordShield® Brilliant disinfectants to the Asian market through a white label collaboration. The products, branded by Mantap under SafeShield, will, as a first step, be sold in Malaysia from Q1 2022.

The NordShield® Brilliant series has three products on the market:

  • Brilliant Surfaces for hard surfaces,

  • Brilliant Hands for hand disinfection and

  • Brilliant Fresh for shoes, performance gear and feet for odor control

"At Mantap, we take pride in offering the newest and highest quality technology to our customers and are thus thrilled to collaborate with pioneering NordShield®. We are excited to bring this unique technology to the quality and performance conscious Asian market, and we look forward to a long-term collaboration with NordShield®."

"Mantap as a well-established, highly reputable and connected player in the market of PPE products, is the perfect fit for us to expand our market reach jointly. Their experienced and active team makes us look forward to continuing our journey together, which has already started at high speed."

- Kristoffer Ekman, CEO of NordShield®

Before the market entry of NordShield® Brilliant products, disinfectants have generally been based on alcohol as the active substance to eliminate germs. The effect of alcohol is short-lived, and after it has evaporated, typically in a matter of seconds, the treated surface is exposed to contamination again. NordShield® Brilliant products contain alcohol for the immediate kill effect; however, the long-lasting protection of the surface is derived from its disruptive technology based on the unique layer that does not evaporate but forms a durable physical, armor-like barrier on the treated surface. Thus, upon application, the unique barrier formulation of NordShield® Brilliant technology provides both an immediate kill and sustained protection of surfaces against microbes. The duration can vary based on the surface and the strain on it. The entire NordShield® Brilliant series has received the 3-star quality seal and rating "excellent" in dermatological tests conducted by renowned Dermatest GmbH in Germany.
