Are Safetec’s Hand Sanitizer or p.a.w.s. Antimicrobial Hand Wipes effective against COVID-19?

Hand hygiene products are unable to make specific pathogen claims; therefore, we cannot say that our hand sanitizer or hand wipes are effective against COVID-19. However, the CDC does recommend the use of a hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol in the absence of soap and water to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

What percentage of alcohol does hand sanitizer need to be effective?

The CDC recommends the use of a hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol in the absence of soap and water for most people. Since the COVID-19 pandemic, the CDC released a statement recommending that in healthcare settings 60% ethanol or 70% isopropanol hand sanitizer should be used. Since Safetec’s hand sanitizer contains over 60% ethanol, it meets the CDC recommendation for healthcare settings as well as non-healthcare settings.

What is the alcohol content of your hand sanitizer?

Safetec Instant Hand Sanitizer contains 66.5% ethyl alcohol, which meets the CDC recommendation to use a hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol in the absence of soap and water.

Why can’t I find your product on the EPA List N: Disinfectants for Use Against SARS-CoV-2?

This EPA list only contains the primary registrant’s product name and EPA registration number. All of our surface disinfectants are sub registered products, so you will not be able to find them by name on this list. According to the EPA, “The easiest way to find a product on this list is to enter the first two sets of its EPA registration number into the search bar below. For example, if EPA Reg. No. 12345-12 is on List N, you can buy EPA Reg. No. 12345-12-2567 and know you’re getting an equivalent product.”

Can you provide proof that your surface disinfectants are for use against SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes COVID-19)?

All of our SaniZide products meet the EPA’s criteria for use against COVID-19 (SARS-CoV-2). Safetec surface disinfectants are sub registered products. Since the EPA list N only contains the primary registrant’s name and EPA Registration number, you will not be able to find our products by name. Below is a list of our products and the primary registrant’s information so you can find the products easily on the EPA List N: Disinfectants for Use Against SARS-CoV-2. • SaniZide Pro 1 Spray/Liquid (EPA registration # 88494-3-67161) is Peak Disinfectant by North American Infection Control Ltd under (EPA registration # 88494-3)

• SaniZide Pro 1™ Wipes (EPA Registration # 88494-4-67161) is Peak Disinfectant by North American Infection Control Ltd under (EPA registration # 88494-4)

 

• SaniZide Plus Spray/Liquid (EPA Registration # 1839-83-67161) is Detergent Disinfectant Pump Spray by Stepan Company (EPA Registration # 1839-83)

What is the difference between kill time and product contact time?

Kill time is the time it takes a disinfectant to kill an individual pathogen or group of pathogens. Product contact time is the time it takes a disinfectant to kill all the pathogens listed on the product label. A product that kills most pathogens in one minute, but requires 5 minutes to kill a single pathogen, has a 5 minute product contact time and must remain wet on a surface for the full 5 minutes. SaniZide Pro 1® disinfectant kills all pathogens listed on the label in one minute. Therefore, SaniZide Pro 1® disinfectant has a one-minute product contact time and only needs to remain wet on the surface for one minute, saving time and increasing compliance.

Which SaniZide product is ready to use?

Both. SaniZide Plus® and Pro 1® products are both ready to use, meaning there is no diluting or mixing necessary. They can be used right from the bottle or canister.

What does “one-step clean and disinfect” mean?

A surface that is visibly soiled must be cleaned before disinfecting with any registered disinfectant. But, where a surface is not visibly soiled, only a one-step product can be used to both clean the unseen surface contamination and then disinfect the surface in a single step. Products that are not “one step” require at least two steps, and twice as much product, even if the surface is not visibly soiled.

Which SaniZide product has quicker kill times?

SaniZide Pro 1®. It is an intermediate-level EPA registered, hospital grade 1-minute surface disinfectant that contains 21% alcohol.

Which SaniZide products require you to use personal protection?

All of our SaniZide Pro 1® and SaniZide Plus® disinfectants are considered low toxicity designated by the signal word “Caution” on the label. They have this designation because they can cause moderate eye irritation. While PPE is not required, it is recommended to wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water after handling. When dealing with blood and other bodily fluids remember the proper use of disposable latex gloves, gowns, masks and eye coverings when handling soiled items or surfaces.

What is the difference between cleaning, sanitizing, and disinfecting?

Cleaning removes visible dirt and other contaminants but does not kill any microorganisms. Sanitizing Kills 99.9% of Staphylococcus aureus and Klebsiella pneumoniae or Enterobacter aerogenes only, within 5 minutes. Low-level disinfection is the process of killing from 99.9%-99.999% of specific vegetative bacteria, fungi, and enveloped viruses which are listed on the product label. Intermediate-level disinfection is the process of killing from 99.9% to 99.999% of specific vegetative bacteria, fungi, enveloped viruses, and non-enveloped viruses that are listed on the product label. High-level disinfectants kill all the pathogens that are killed by intermediate-level disinfection as well as killing bacterial spores.

Are all sanitizers and disinfectants the same thing?

No. Some surface disinfectants may also have a surface sanitizer claim according to the EPA, but remember that sanitizing surfaces kills less germs than disinfecting. Surface sanitizers must also not be confused with hand sanitizers or hand wipes. Hand sanitizers cannot have specific kill claims and have not been tested on hard surfaces which means you cannot know that they will be effective on hard surfaces. Always read the product instructions for the intended use of the product.

What is the difference between Red Z® Solidifier and Green-Z® Solidifier?

Red Z® solidifies and contains chlorine to deodorize potentially infectious blood and body fluids. Green-Z® solidifies but does not contain chlorine which makes it safe to use on chemicals such as chemotherapy drugs, glutaraldehyde, and mercury in addition to bodily fluids.

Can Red Z® be used on a carpet?

Yes. Before using Red Z® it is recommended to spot test a portion of the carpet before applying the product. To view our carpet clean-up video click here.

What solidifier format is right for my business/customers?

How do I find my lot number and expiration date?

Pouches: Both are stamped near the bottom of the product with the first 4 numbers showing the expiration date, followed by the lot number. (ex. 1115N199) Bottles: Both are laser printed near the bottom either right on the bottle or can be found on a sticker on the bottle. Boxes: Both are found on a sticker on the box.

Why does my product not have an expiration date on it?

Safetec Kits: The outer packaging of any Safetec kit does not receive expiration dating during manufacturing because there are multiple items within a kit that each have different expiration dates, depending on the individual date of manufacture. Safetec does strive to efficiently package kits with only the most recently manufactured internal components, ensuring a 2 to 3-year shelf life. OTC products (have Drug Facts): Over-The-Counter products that do not have a dosage limit (like amount per day) do not require expiration dating. Safetec is required however to have proven test studies showing product stability over a 3-year shelf life, by the FDA. If a product states a dosage limit in the Drug Facts-Uses like “not more than 3 to 4 times daily” then an expiration date will be displayed on the innermost packaging.
