Due to its active oxygen content, peracetic acid is effective against a large number of microorganisms even in low concentrations and at low temperatures. After use, peracetic acid decomposes into harmless decomposition products such as oxygen, water and vinegar, which underlines its ecological harmlessness.


During active chlorine disinfection, various chlorine compounds are used specifically to achieve rapid and effective destruction of pathogenic microorganisms such as bacteria, viruses and fungi. The chlorine reacts with the cell walls of the microorganisms and leads to their destruction or inactivation.


Electrochemically Activated Water (ECA) is a disinfection method that uses electrolysis to convert ordinary water into oxygenated water and acidic water. The oxygenated water contains activated oxygen in the form of free radicals and charged particles that have an antimicrobial effect. Because ECA is water-based and requires no chemical additives, it is often considered to be an environmentally friendly and completely safe method of disinfection.


Hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) is known as an oxygen releaser used in various applications including disinfection. When it comes to disinfecting, hydrogen peroxide works by splitting off oxygen to create oxidizing radicals. These radicals have a strong oxidizing effect and can penetrate the cell membranes of microorganisms and attack proteins and nucleic acids. Good efficacy is only achieved at slightly higher concentrations. Hydrogen peroxide is therefore often used in combination with alkalis to increase the cleaning and disinfecting effect.


Chlorine dioxide is used in various industries, including drinking water treatment, the food industry, the paper and textile industry and in the medical environment to disinfect surfaces and instruments. It is important to note that chlorine dioxide must be used in the correct concentration and in accordance with safety precautions, as it can be harmful to health in high concentrations.


Ethanol is one of the classic alcohol-based disinfectants and has become quite well known due to the corona pandemic. The easy availability of ethanol in various concentrations, from medical ethanol to commercial disinfectants, has contributed to its widespread use and easy accessibility. Using ethanol to disinfect hands, surfaces and objects has proven to be effective in reducing the spread of disease.


Our liquid, slightly foaming diamine-based products are specially designed for use in the food industry. They provide an effective sanitising solution and are an alternative to quaternary ammonium compounds. Due to their diamine base, they provide effective control of microorganisms while ensuring a high level of safety and hygiene in food processing facilities.


Sodium persulphate is an easy-to-use and environmentally friendly active ingredient based on active oxygen. Active oxygen reacts with microorganisms through its oxidising properties, attacking the cell membranes and enzymes of bacteria, viruses and other pathogens. Disinfection with active oxygen offers many advantages, including broad-spectrum effectiveness against a wide range of microorganisms, no formation of chlorinated by-products and reduced toxicity to humans and the environment.
