In 2020, SpectraShield Technologies asked the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for approval of an amended and updated label for SpectraKill RTU. The company provided EPA with the needed third-party testing and other rational to update the label with additional pathogen claims and use instructions for the product. In April 2021, the company was informed by EPA that new the label for SpectraKill RTU has been approved.
Specifically, SpectraKill RTU is now approved to disinfect four additional pathogens – Human Coronavirus, Influenza (H1N1), Listeria and E. Coli. These organisms are in addition to the existing claims against Norovirus, Rhinovirus, Staphylococcus aureus, Salmonella, Pseudomonas, A, Baumannii, Trichophyton Mentagrophytes. Each of these claims were proven with a soil load, meaning SpectraKill RTU is a one step cleaner / disinfectant that does not require a pre-clean prior to disinfecting hard surfaces.
The EPA also approved SpectraKill RTU for HVAC systems when used with a fogging and other application device and as a deodorizer.
In addition to the new kill claims and use instructions, the EPA also accepted safety instructions that adds to SpectraKill RTU’s ease of use. This newly approved label continues to enforce the Swiss Army Knife capability of SpectraKill RTU.
Very few EPA registered disinfectants qualify for the low toxicity “Caution” labeling like SpectraKill RTU.
Even fewer disinfectants are biodegradable and Certified Green for the Environment by a third-party organization. And even fewer products still offer the broad-spectrum capability of SpectraKill RTU in a low toxicity, certified green formula.
For disinfection that is safe for people and our environment, SpectraKill RTU provides one step, ready to use disinfection for any hard surface need.
