If the Bactakleen Bactashield coating is transparent, how will I know it is on a surface?
Bactakleen Bactashield coating is indeed transparent. While virtually invisible on matte, textured, or light coloured surfaces, high gloss and very dark surfaces may show a slight iridescent effect or increase in sheen after the coating dries. The coating can be applied to stone, masonry, ceramics, metals, wood, painted surfaces, glass, and textiles. We do not recommend application on leather, silk, or organic based inks or paints, because the oxidation process may remove some pigments from these organic materials. We will always test a sample surface for unconventional surfaces to check its cosmetic effects. A very light coat is all that is necessary, and will help prevent streaking or drips.
