Effective Spot Disinfection of Surfaces

Germs can live on surfaces for hours. Hence, daily thorough cleaning and disinfection of frequently touched surfaces, such as in hospitals and offices, can significantly reduce contamination of people’s hands, minimizing the spread of infections and reducing costs related to sick leave.

Ready-to-use surface disinfectants based on alcohols are widely used for this purpose in health care and building care (especially spray or wet wipe formulations for spot disinfection).

Key requirements:

  • Broad-spectrum microbicidal activity including bacteria, yeasts, and viruses
  • Rapid action, within 1 minute
  • Also active in the presence of soil

Additional requirements are good compatibility with plastics, no residues on surfaces, and no formation of aerosols.
