How does Spectra DF-500 work?
Spectra DF-500 is a 2-part, aqueous-based disinfectant that is EPA registered as a vuricide, bactericide, fungicide, decontaminant, deodorizer, algaecide, and mildewstat. The formulation:
- is effective for killing pathogenic organisms including bacteria, viruses, algae, fungi, and excellent deodorizer;
- utilizes very mild ingredients that gives it very low toxicity and corrosivity;
- applied as a foam, liquid spray, or mist
- uniquely designed for porous and non-porous surfaces for disinfection
Spectra DF-500 contains surfactants, mild solvents, inorganic salts, hydrogen peroxide, and water. The surfactants soften the cell walls of pathogens which allows the activated peroxide to penetrate to the interior for complete destruction. This unique formulation of mild ingredients works together to kill persistent pathogens. Extensive testing includes:
Norovirus, H1N1, Influenza A & B, and Emerging Viral Pathogen (EPA List N)
Listeria, Pseudomonas, Salmonella, Staph Aureus (MRSA&VISA) Staph Epidermidis, Enterobacter aerogenes, Proteus mirabilis, Klebsiella, pneumoniae, VRE.
Aspergillus Niger, Penicillium, Trichophyton
Why is Spectra DF-500 a superior disinfectant for SARS-CoV-2 as compared to many other products?
The detergents, inorganic salts, and mild solvents in Spectra DF-500 cut through the organic material, soils, bodily fluids, and the viral lipid and protein envelopes to allow the hydrogen peroxide in Spectra DF-500 to reach the virus and destroy it. Because SARS-CoV-2 transmission and survivability is exceptional, Spectra DF-500’s ability to penetrate organic soils and bodily fluids allow the dual active ingredients of Hydrogen Peroxide and ADBAC to reach the virus for a complete kill. Spectra DF-500 has unique properties that are not found in other commonly used disinfectants. While other disinfectants perform well in controlled laboratory environments, Spectra DF-500 outperforms the competition in real-world applications and gets results.
The mild ingredients in Spectra DF-500 give it very low toxicity and corrosivity properties and it is odor-free after application making it safe for people and property. Spectra DF-200 is also biodegradable so it does not harm the environment.
