A Healthier World for Everyone
We have come much closer in the last 150 years than ever before to make possible a reality where people and animals live with a significantly reduced risk of infection and disease. In hospitals, schools, food processing plants and other places, disinfectants are paving the way for a healthier world. But as science and medicine advance, population growth, congested cities and international travel increase the potential for transmission and lead to evolving strains of virus and bacteria such as COVID-19, the need for innovative, powerful disinfectants has never been greater.
The Case for Quats
Quaternary ammonium compounds, or quats, are indispensable in modern hygiene. A non-corrosive alternative to bleach and chlorine, they function as active ingredients in disinfectant formulations, helping to minimize the spread of pathogens in a variety of applications. Quats kill more than 150 types of bacteria, and products containing quats have proven effective against Norovirus, Ebola, Coronavirus, SARS, MRSA and cold and flu viruses.
The Benefits of Disinfectants
Contaminated surfaces can become transmission points for infection and disease. In healthcare facilities, food processing plants, schools and other public places, pathogens often spread via contact with contaminated countertops, desks, operating tables and other surfaces. Successful disinfectants eliminate pathogens and create a clean, hygienic environment, protecting your consumers from the risk of infection.
Preservatives that Work
Preservatives are a vital part of hygiene, keeping products working their best and preventing the growth of microorganisms that lead to potential negative effects on products aesthetics, product recalls and ultimately a danger to the health of consumers. When preservatives work well, the consumer is completely unaware of them—and that is how it should be.
