Disinfection to tackle Coronavirus
Coronaviruses (CoVs) are enveloped viruses, which means that the virus is held within a lipid envelope. Despite the serious nature of the disease some of these enveloped viruses can cause, they are easily compromised by most disinfectants.
PDI offers several surface disinfectant products with proven efficacy to European Norm EN 14476 for enveloped viruses.
The following products are effective:
- Sani-Cloth Chlor
- Sani-Cloth AF Universal
- Super Sani-Cloth Plus
- Sani-Cloth 70
- Sani-Cloth Active
It is important to ensure the surface remains wet for the required contact time to allow the disinfectant to work. PDI Sani-Cloth Chlor has been tested to Human Coronavirus EPA to a contact time of one minute, while PDI Sani-Cloth AF Universal, Sani-Cloth 70 and Super Sani-Cloth Plus are effective against enveloped viruses in just 30 seconds of contact time or less.
PDI Sani-Cloth Active is effective against enveloped viruses tested to DVV/RKI in just 30 seconds.
