FACTS ABOUT PREempt PRODUCTS and Accelerated Hydrogen Peroxide
It has long been known that hydrogen peroxide can kill germs without being harmful to the user. However, up to now, this remarkable chemical has not been considered stable enough to be practical as the foundation for a system of commercial disinfectant cleaners. Virox Technologies Inc. has pioneered the broader acceptance of Hydrogen Peroxide based products with this patented technology known as Accelerated Hydrogen Peroxide (AHP). AHP is a synergistic blend of commonly used, safe ingredients that when combined with low levels of hydrogen peroxide produce exceptional potency as germicide and performance as a cleaner.
The benefits and efficacy of AHP have been validated by third party clinical studies conducted by scientific organizations and third party researchers that are recognized by government regulatory agencies in Canada, the U.S and Europe. Studies show that decisions makers tend to focus on four key criterias when selecting a product.
Cleaning, Efficiency, Germicidal Activity, Personal Health and Safety, and the Environment. AHP formulations have been designed with these criteria in mind.
What PREempt promises - THE 4 PILLARS OF STRENGTH
FASTER - Realizing Contact Times - PREempt RTU has a 3 minute contact time against TB and Polio 1 compared to other chemical disinfectants at 10 minutes. Faster means less delays, with the ability to accomplish necessary and effective sanitation and disinfection between clients.
CLEANER - Better Cleaning Efficiency - most disinfectants on the market are considered poor cleaners and therefore require the surface to be pre-cleaned in order for them to make their germicidal claims. The superior action of AHP allows you to PREempt RTU as a cleaner as as well as a disinfectant.
SAFER - Safer for Users and Occupants - chemicals that are safer to users and occupants provide for a healthier indoor environment. AHP disinfectants are non-toxic, non-corrosive to skin, non-irritating to eyes, contain nor Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC's). Clean should NEVER have a smell.
RESPONSIBLE - Reduce Environmental Load - PREempt is environmentally responsible, it breaks down into Oxygen, Water, Biodegradable Soaps. PreEmpt does not emit dangerous fumes or bad odors and is not dangerous to the aquatic life.
