Peracide is a revolutionary, clinically proven in-situ peracetic acid cleaner and disinfectant, with active ingredients which boast strong oxidising properties associated with peracetic acid, with a pleasant fragrance. Peracide is formulated with a unique colour activation system which alerts the user of its efficacy, it is simple to visually see if the product will work.
Peracide has excellent disinfectant properties above chlorine, Quaternary ammonium compounds and hydrogen peroxide. Peracetic acid can kill all known pathogens including spores in both ‘clean’ and ‘dirty’ conditions. It is also safe for both the user and the environment degrading into just water, vinegar and carbon dioxide.
SKIN FRIENDLY & DERMATOLOGICALLY TESTED
NO EXPOSURE LIMIT
In 2005 Sky Chemicals, became interested in hospital infection control. Reports at the time were full of news of outbreaks of Clostridium Difficile (C-Diff), Noro Virus, Ecoli, and MRSA, branded super bugs which were causing increased hospital deaths, extended stays and temporary ward closures. So we began the quest to find a reliable, effective and environmentally sound way to control these harmful pathogens.
With the help of highly experienced chemists from the industry, our research soon began to take a closer look at peracitic acid. Futher investigations, and discussions with microbiologists, research departments, disinfectant, hygiene and cleaning experts confirmed their findings: peracitic acid was indeed a powerful disinfectant, capable of killing all known microorganisms.
Pressing the ingredients of Peracide into a tablet produces a measured dose of peracetic acid, available on demand by dissolving the tablet in water. This reliable dose and the design of the colour gives a reliable, repeatable result in every situation.
Working with academic institutions, and our in-house quality control, every part of the tablet is tailored to reproduce the laboratory results under real conditions.
Tetraacetylethylenediamine (TAED) and sodium percarbonate are stable chemicals which react in water to produce peracetic acid. Inherently peracetic acid, hydrogen peroxide, chlorine dioxide and sodium hypochlorite are unstable due to their highly oxidising reactivity.
Creating peracetic acid through an aqueous chemical reaction protects the unstable chemical for the occasion when it is needed, this allows Peracide tablets to be stored for up to 2 years.
Peracetic acid has been known as a high-level disinfectant for many years. The high level of oxidation produces a powerful action which disrupts and kills a wide spectrum of microorganisms.
Whilst the mode of action is disputed academically, current research has shown that peracetic acid disrupts and ruptures the cell wall of the microorganism, exposing the DNA/RNA from inside the cell, which reacts quickly with peracetic acid ensuring treated microorganisms cannot become resistant.
Currently, test strips are used to quantify the concentration of the disinfectant and to determine how effective the disinfectant will perform, however, test strips are impractical for day to day cleaning situations, as they take time and may not work if the instructions are not followed correctly.
Peracide uses a built-in colour system, where the colour of the solution is directly related to the performance of the solution. The correct dosage of peracetic acid is determined by a pink colour, the preparation of Peracide is performed through 4 simple steps:
The spread of disease among adolescents can cause discomfort and distress. The close working environment of a classroom allows pathogens to spread quickly and easily.
Peracide offers a solution to disinfect large areas quickly and safely, leaving only a fresh fragrance.
Peracide is a high-level disinfectant that can be used on almost every surface found in a healthcare environment, the wide-spectrum of efficacy will help reduce the spread of pathogens and potentially reduce HCAI cases.
The use of Peracide in both kitchen and public eating areas will reduce the chance of norovirus spread. Peracide has been tested to EN 14476 for viruses and many other standardised tests.
The wide-spectrum of efficacy will ensure food preparation surfaces are sanitised to a very high level.
Peracide can be used in many sectors and can fit into current cleaning schedules. Peracide produces safe, clean and fragrant results every time.
Easy to apply without unnecessary harm to the environment or the user, contact us today to see how we can help you.
Peracide is DEFRA approved for General Orders. The versatility of Peracide means it can be applied through spray systems, by mop or by hand.
Peracide can be used safely around animals and their food with no known hazardous by-products which can tarnish housing and surfaces.
The use of Peracide will reduce the number of environmental pathogens which can, in turn, reduce the chance of cross-contamination.
It can be applied quickly and easily, with no waiting time required after the solution has dried to re-introduce people to the treated area.
There are growing concerns over the ability of conventional disinfectants such as chlorine and quaternary based products to keep up with a new generation of Multidrug-Resistant Organisms (MROs) which are resistant to traditional antibiotics and some disinfectants.
This immunity creates the problem where no matter how much cleaning and disinfecting is scheduled, it won’t actually reduce the number of instances of outbreak. This could be incorrectly presumed to be the fault of the cleaning schedules, however, more likely, the problem is with the disinfectant product.
The persistent presence of Clostridium difficile spores, MRSA, Norovirus and other MRO pathogens in residential & care homes calls for a better product to improve the efficiency of the cleaning practice and improves disinfectant processes throughout the industry.
The problem faced cannot be controlled by chlorine products, quaternary ammonium products or other low-level disinfectants due to the need for a strong oxidising action to destroy persistent pathogens and spores that can stay in the environment for weeks to months, if not correctly sanitised.
Peracide is clinically proven to kill every known micro-organism including C diff spores in 15 Seconds amongst other pathogens, with NO RESISTANCE.
