Our EPA Registered Disinfectant Is Specially Formulated For Use With A HPLV/ULV Sprayer Fogger System

Hydrogen Peroxide can be recognized as one of the safest types of disinfectants, both for human health and the environment. Most people are familiar with the hydrogen peroxide that is available in a brown bottle in the medicine cabinet. This is the 3% variety that can go on a wound or used as a mouthwash. Hydrogen peroxide excellent environmental footprint. The breakdown components are water and oxygen. It has a very good health and safety profile, too. If you can use 3% to wash your mouth out at the dentist, you can be pretty confident that your health risk from exposure to it is limited.

Hydrogen peroxide is considered an environmentally safe alternative to chlorine-based bleaches as it breaks down into water and oxygen. Hydrogen peroxide is considered a stable and effective disinfectant by the CDC when used on inanimate objects. Hydrogen peroxide works by producing destructive hydroxyl free radicals that attack membrane lipids, DNA, and other essential cell components of viruses and pathogens.

Hydrogen Peroxide combined with our surfactant, or surface active agent, makes water more efficient by making it wetter. Water becomes "wetter" by lowering its surface tension. With the addition of a surfactant the drops of water spread out and contact the surface more effectively. Surfactant is the general name for a surface active agent and the name was derived from those 3 words. A wetting agent lowers surface tension and interfacial tension in (mainly) aqueous solutions. So, to get a difficult surface to wet out evenly, you use a wetting agent.

Experts all agree "There are many bad things about the coronavirus, but there is one good thing: It is not very hardy,” said Dr. John Swartzberg, an expert on infectious diseases and a professor emeritus at the University of California, Berkeley, School of Public Health. “It is easily destroyed by most disinfectants."
