PREPARATION OF USE SOLUTION:
For water hardness up to 300 ppm add 2 ounces per gallon (16 milliliters per liter) of water (1:64) to disinfect hard, non porous surfaces [Glass, metal, stainless steel, glazed porcelain, glazed ceramic, granite, marble, plastic (such as polystyrene or polypropylene), sealed limestone, sealed slate, sealed stone, sealed terra cotta, sealed terrazzo, chrome and vinyl]. Apply solution with a cloth, mop, sponge, hand pump trigger sprayer or other mechanical sprayer devices. Treated surfaces must remain wet for 10 minutes. Let air dry. Prepare a fresh solution for each use. This product is effective in hard water up to 300 ppm hardness. Remove gross filth or heavy soil. For heavily soiled areas, a pre-cleaning step is required.
VIRUCIDAL: When used on inanimate, hard, non-porous, environmental surfaces at 2 ounces per gallon of water for a 10 minute contact time (5% organic soil), except for Poliovirus Type I (Chat strain): which requires a 30 minute contact time (5% organic soil) and HIV-1 which requires only 30 second contact time. This product, in the presence of a 98% organic soil load, diluted 1:64 (2 ounces per gallon) in 400 ppm Hard Water, demonstrated efficacy within 10 minutes against the following virus: Human Coronavirus. Note that the organism referenced in the above statement is not associated with blood spills. For blood spills, the surface must be thoroughly cleaned before applying this product.
KILLS HIV, HCV & HBV ON PRE-CLEANED ENVIRONMENTAL SURFACES/OBJECTS PREVIOUSLY SOILED WITH BLOOD/BODY FLUIDS in health care settings or other settings in which there is an expected likelihood of soiling of inanimate surfaces/objects with blood or body fluids, and in which the surfaces/objects likely to be soiled with blood or body fluids can be associated with the potential for transmission of human immunodeficiency virus Type 1 (HIV-1) (associated with AIDS), Hepatitis C Virus (HCV) and Hepatitis B Virus (HBV).
SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR CLEANING AND DECONTAMINATION AGAINST HIV-1, HCV & HBV ON SURFACES/OBJECTS SOILED WITH BLOOD/BODY FLUIDS.
