Tips From The Girls: Behind the Scenes of Your Sanitizer

No comments

When cleaning any sort of surface it is important to utilize some sort of sanitizer, otherwise, you leave behind large amounts of contamination consisting of settled – soils and debris. Non-sanitizing can also result to illness causing microorganisms.


Currently, there are three known based sanitizers: Chlorine (Bleach), Quaternary Ammonia (QUAT, QAC), and Iodine.

The common of the three, is the chlorine concentrated sanitizer, as it is usually inexpensive and effective against all bacteria. Quaternary ammonia are more effective on organic materials, and its major advantage is that it leaves behind residual antimicrobial films.

Lastly, you have Iodine Concentrated Sanitizer – which is what we offer here at Controlled Release Technologies. Iodine Sanitizers are fast acting and effective against all bacteria. Concentrated Iodine is nontoxic, non-irritating to skin, stable, and is often used in the Medical Field during surgeries and mainly, for cleaning wounds.

Our Fast Attack (Iodine Concentrated Sanitizer) has a concentration of 35% Iodine, which is a perfect combination, not using enough sanitizing agent will result in inadequate reduction of microorganisms. However, using too much sanitizing agent can be toxic causing further harm.
