Effective surface disinfection -
in times of corona virus
Which disinfectants are effective against the virus?
The corona viruses, belonging to the family Coronaviridae, are so-called enveloped viruses. In addition to the transmission path from person to person, also touched surfaces pose a risk of infection. The German Robert-Koch-Institute recommends the use of disinfection agents with the activity spectrum “limited virucidal” (effective against enveloped viruses), “limited virucidal PLUS” or “virucidal”.
However, many disinfectants available in drugstores or retail do not meet these requirements.
Chlorine dioxide: effective active ingredient against the corona virus
The products available for surface disinfection offered by TER Chemicals are based on the highly effective active ingredient chlorine dioxide. It is proven to inactivate and eliminate corona viruses and other harmful germs by a study of the Tianjin Institute of Environment and Health.
So far, chlorine dioxide, with its beneficial properties, has only been available to commercial and professional users. The products offered by TER Chemicals dimension the active ingredient chlorine dioxide for everyday needs, which makes them accessible also to private users in a simple and safe way. Our product ClaroDES provides a fast and effective surface disinfection of coronaviruses while offering the following advantages at the same time:
Chlorine dioxide is effective against: viruses such as SARS-CoV-2, bacteria, fungi and other microorganisms
Short exposure time, broad antimicrobial spectrum
Reliable removal of biofilms
Depot effect suppresses reformation of germs
Sustainable effectiveness: No formation of resistances possible
Free of allergens, fragrances, ammonia, solvents, copper or silver ions
Neutral in pH, not skin-irritating
The International Air Transport Association (IATA) released a disinfection guideline (view guideline). According to the guideline object surfaces should be disinfected with spray that contains at least 250mg/L chlorine dioxide. ClaroDES contains 300mg/L and is therefore suitable for the highest standards and security.
