Decon7 is being successfully used for disinfection operations in virtually every other country with significant numbers of COVID-19 cases and also in countries without many where disinfection operations have been stepped up to prevent the spread of the virus.
Decon7 is derived from aqueous-based decontamination technology that can rapidly neutralize highly toxic chemical and biological materials . It is a hydrogen peroxide-based formulation that also contains surfactants(i.e., soaps), mild solvents, inorganic salts, and water.
Decon7 is EPA registered and is on the EPA N list to kill Covid-19(SARS-CoV-2).
Unlike any other decontaminant, Decon7 contains zero VOCs, is Non-Flammable, Biodegradable, Non-Corrosive and leaves No Stain or Residue.
With a kill rate of 99.99999%(log7) Decon7 is the best suited to kill the Covid-19 virus (SARS-CoV2).
Decon7 is Registered by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA) for many pathogens such as Listeria, E.coli, Staphylococcus, Salmonella, Norovirus, the porcine Epidemic Diarrhea virus, staph and pseudomonas biofilms, Avian Influenza Virus as well as Emerging Viral Pathogens.
Decon7 can effectively inactivate corona viruses. Decon7 has been third-party laboratory tested, demonstrating effectiveness against viruses similar to Corona virus or Covid-19 on hard, non-porous surfaces. Decon7 Can effectively be used to disinfect facilities against SARS-CoV-2 even with organic or soil loads.
Decon7 is a proprietary blend of surfactant (i.e. soap), ~3.5 percent hydrogen peroxide and a booster. Each kit comes with the three component in the appropriate ratios, so all you have to do is mix and apply.
Why is Decon7 a superior disinfectant for SARS-Cov-2 as compared to many other products
The primary reason is that, in real world applications, SARS-CoV-2 does not exist alone. When airborne, SARS-CoV-2 is almost surrounded by and protected by bodily fluids (e.g. Saliva, Nasal mucous, etc.) which makes it very persistent in the environment.
When it lands on a surface, the situation is very even worse because SARS-CoV-2 is also protected by organic material and soil on those surfaces making it even more persistent in the SARS-Cov-2 virus is surrounded by lipid envelop (i.e., an oily material).
The detergent and mild solvents in Decon7 cut thought the bodily fluids, soil/organic material, and lipid envelop so that the hydrogen peroxide in Decon7 actually reaches and destroy the virus. Other disinfectants are repelled or inactivated by the bodily fluids, soil/organic material, and lipid envelope surrounding SARS-CoV-2 and never actually come in contact with the virus so it survives.
The second Reason why Decon7 is a superior disinfectant for SARS-CoV-2 is that it is very high efficacy against a large spectrum of pathogens, including SARS-CoV-2.
Efficacy in disinfectants is measured by log kill
|LOG10 KILL||PERCENT KILL(%)||REMAINING VIRUS FROM ORIGINAL 10,000,000 PRESENT||other Products|
|2||99||100,000||General Antibacterial Soap|
|3||99.9||10,000||Ethyl Alcohol, Quats, CIO2|
|4||99.99||1000||Specialist Antibacterial Soap & Hand Sanitisers|
|6||99.9999||10||10% Chlorine bleach|
The final reason why Decon7 is so effective against SARS-CoV-2 is that it can easily be deployed by a variety of methods to handle any situation including both enclosed (i.e., sealed) and unenclosed (i.e., unsealed) spaces.
