Disinfection That Lasts

Surface Protection

For truly long-lasting defense against harmful microorganisms, antimicrobial cleaners should provide 24-hour surface disinfection or sanitization benefits that are compliant with regulated tests. Formulators can achieve reliable disinfection along with other desirable cleaning features with Solvay’s ActizoneTM technology. Our ActizoneTM products give formulators unmatched flexibility as they develop the highest-performing disinfecting cleaners to provide initial kill when applied and all-day microbial defense, even after repeated touches, without sacrificing the cleaning experience.*

The Technology Behind Actizone™

The combination of the Actizone™ P5 polymer and our Actizone™ S5 surfactant package, along with established quaternary ammonium chloride active ingredients, creates Actizone™ F5, a ready-to-use surface disinfectant cleaner solution. Our proprietary polymer works with antimicrobial actives to form an invisible protective film on surfaces where the actives kill microorganisms as needed for up to 24 hours. These long-lasting antimicrobial formulations remain effective even when surfaces are repeatedly contaminated or eroded by continued contact. Unlike conventional household disinfectants. Solutions developed with the range of Actizone™ products retain sufficient levels of antimicrobial actives to kill germs for hours after being applied to a surface.*
