Strangles, Ringworm, E.Coli and Mycotoxin – these are just a few words which can create anxiety in any horse lover, trainer, barn or riding school owner. If any of these diseases are confirmed the consequences can include:•Discomfort for your horse•Large vet bills•Whole yard/barn quarantined•Exclusion from competitions•In some cases loss of income•In rare cases Strangles can even be fatal
The new range of KBF99 products brings a revolution to Horse Health CareLaunched by Vale Brothers, KBF99 products will assist in the prevention of infection and reinfection of these troublesome and painful diseases. KBF99 has been tested by Coventry University using the standard test for Anti Microbial Activity. Laboratory tests resulted in KBF99 material killing 99% of the bacteria test culture. Any reduction of harmful bacteria and fungus in the stable environment assists in reducing the chances of the diseases being transmitted from horse to horse. The KBF99 product range has been developed to help protect and safeguard horses and in some cases humans from contracting these and other conditions.
How it works
KBF99 has been tested by Coventry University using the standard test for Anti Microbial Activity (ISO 2196 : 2007).KBF99 is at least 99% effective against Strangles, Ring Worm, E.Coli and Mycotoxin.Read more about the infections here.
KBF99 coats the surface of plastic with molecular strands (tiny spikes or swords).It is also rich in Nitrogen molecules that carry a positive charge. These attract the negatively charged membranes of Bacteria, Fungi, Algae and Mycotocins. The spikes rupture the membrane, killing the cell, which is then blown apart.Read more about the technology here.

Small Anti-bacterial and Anti-fungal Brush
This easy to hold anti-bacterial brush has soft short fibres and incorporates the KBF99 additive which is proven to kill over 99.9% of bacteria and 99.6% of fungus without the use of chemicals. The brush can be used wet or dry. The brush fibres are covered in tiny spikes that stab and kill microbes. The technology has been tested at Coventry University against both bacteria and fungus. Cornell University in the USA have requested samples to test against the coronavirus as there is a chance that it will kill this cell type. Updates will be posted once known.Do not clean the fibres with bleach, hot soapy water is enough and your brush will remain effective indefinitely. The technology kills microbes physically so no chemicals are ever released. Only possible side affect could be dry skin from over brushing.The brush can also be used on surfaces eg door handles. Also excellent for cleaning your hands when away from water sources. Small enough to fit in your pocket or handbag, so ideal for use before entering and when leaving a supermarket for example.Cornell University have stated that cats, dogs, horses or other fur covered animals could carry the coronavirus on their coat for up to 15 mins. Therefore if someone outside your family touches your animal then it would be worth brushing.Click here to watch our hand washing guide video.
