SpectraKill® unique properties are not found in other commonly used disinfectants. While other disinfectants perform well in controlled laboratory environments, SpectraKill® outperforms the competition in real-world applications and delivers results.
Yes. SpectraKill® RTU successfully passed GLP testing against Human Coronavirus in 2020 and that testing has been submitted to EPA to update the RTU Registration.
Yes, SpectraKill® RTU is Registered for use by the EPA. The product’s Registration Number is 90748-1
SpectraKill® RTU dries into inert biodegradable elements, making it environmentally friendly.
No, they do not.
Yes, SpectraShield products have been certified Green by the Green Cleaning Institute.
Yes. This is an excellent product for use in food processing areas, but you will be required to do a potable water rinse after conducting your disinfection/sanitation.
SpectraKill® RTU has two active ingredients: Hydrogen Peroxide and ADBAC.
No. SpectraKill® RTU is a low corrosion formula.
SpectraKill® cleaves the spore wall through oxidation, which occurs because of an absence of electrons in SpectraKill®. By stripping the organism of electrons, it neutralizes the mycotoxin inside.
The two active ingredients (Hydrogen Peroxide and ADBAC) create a dual kill capability tailored to destroy the target microorganism. Our proprietary formula has stabilized our Hydrogen Peroxide for a long shelf life.
SpectraShield has an equity partnership with Crown Technologies, a ISO 9001:2015 facility, who is our primary manufacturer along with a few select chemical manufacturers in the Unites States with whom we have blending agreements.
No, they do not.
No, SpectraShield products don't require any transportation placards.
Yes. SpectraShield is often utilized by chemical specialists in bio-remediation and other crime scene clean-up efforts. For this particular application, we recommend either Spectra DF-500 or Spectra DF-200.
No. SpectraKill® RTU can not be foamed unless you add a foaming agent to the RTU. However, both Spectra DF-500 and Spectra DF-200 have excellent foaming characteristics.
One Year for SpectraKill® RTU and, in the right environmental conditions, up to 6 years for Spectra DF-500 and Spectra DF-200.
As with all disinfectants, users must follow all use instructions on the label. If using a mechanical applicator, we do recommend eye protection, gloves and a mask.
No special storage is required.
SpectraShield Technologies, along with its partner, Crown Laboratories of Indiana, initiated a development effort to create a ready to use disinfectant that would have a lower toxicity profile but still offer a broad spectrum kill.
The result of this development effort is a proprietary disinfectant known as SpectraKill® RTU.
SpectraKill® RTU is an EPA Registered disinfectant that is Category IV “practically non-toxic” in 5 of 6 Categories, certified Green by the Green Clean Institute, yet offers a broad spectrum kill against a variety of pathogens including Staphylococcus aureus, Pseudomonas aeruginosa , Salmonella enteric, E. Coli, Listeria, Trichophyton mentagrophytes, Coronavirus, Rhinovirus, Norovirus, and H1N1.
SpectraKill® RTU is a broad-spectrum disinfectant that kills a variety of bacteria, viruses and mold including: Staphylococcus Aureus, Pseudomonas Aeruginosa, Salmonella Enterica, E. Coli, Listeria, Trichophyton Mentagrophytes, Coronavirus, Norovirus, Rhinovirus, and H1N1.
To help ensure the safe use and disposal of disinfection products, the EPA requires all Disinfectants to go through toxicity testing to determine any possible ill effects on humans and identify precautions that may need to be taken.
The four toxicity categories, from one to four are:
Category I is Highly toxic and Severely irritating,
Category II is Moderately toxic and Moderately irritating,
Category III is Slightly toxic and Slightly irritating,
Category IV is Practically non-toxic and not an irritant.
SpectraKill® RTU has 5 of 6 Toxicity area of evaluation at CAT IV (practically non-toxic) and one area as CAT III, Slightly irritating because of the Hydrogen Peroxide.
Third party, GLP testing data is available on the SpectraKill®.com website.
There are only a limited number of materials and surfaces that would not be wise to use our products. This includes brass (over time), some wool materials, and untreated aluminum (wipe down).
When used as directed, yes. SpectraKill® RTU is safe for pets and children. Toxicity testing determined SpectraKill® to be Category IV “practically non-toxic” in 5 of 6 tests and only “slightly toxic” in the final test.
No. SpectraKill® has a scent described as odorless.
There is no mixing. SpectraKill® RTU is ready to use straight from the container.
EPA List N refers to products on this list meet EPA’s criteria for use against SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19.
Previously known as MSDS, all chemical products are required to produce a Safety Data Sheet that provides technical and safety information on a product.
Microbiologists use a logarithmic scale when measuring a reduction of contamination by microorganisms. Log reduction stands for a 10-fold (or one decimal point) reduction in bacteria, meaning the disinfectant reduces the number of live bacteria by 90 percent for every step.
