F10 Disinfectant Ready to Use
This 'Ready to use' product is F10®SC pre-diluted to a 1:250 concentration.
Available in 1 litre bottle with a trigger spray or as a 1 litre refill.
F10®SC is a veterinary disinfectant which achieves a broad spectrum kill of potentially harmful micro-organisms. It is active against bacteria, viruses, fungi and spores.
It is an excellent product for achieving a high level of biosecurity effectively and safely as it poses no hazard to yourself and is completely safe to use in presence of animals when used at recommended concentrations. At working dilutions it is non-corrosive, non-toxic, non-tainting and non-irritating, and is also chlorine- and aldehyde-free.
The 1:250 dilution rate use to create this ready-to-use product is the rate recommended for high level disinfection against bacteria, fungi and most viruses (including coronavirus).*
F10®SC is available in 100ml, 200ml, 1 litre and 5 litre bottles.
WHAT IS F10® DISINFECTANT READY TO USE USED FOR?
- Effective and safe general disinfection of all hard surfaces (such as tables, floors and cages)
- For animal housekeeping procedures (such as the cleaning of food and water bowls and bedding)
- F10® Disinfectant Ready to Use can be sprayed on and left to disinfect after cleaning to provide additional biosecurity
Note - F10® Disinfectant Ready to Use should be used on surfaces which are already 'clean', but need disinfecting - i.e. remove any visible dirt from the surface before use. For a ‘one-step’ product for light duty cleaning, where a detergent is needed, use F10SCXD.
* - Against the most resistant viruses such as Parvovirus or Circovirus (PBFD) a stronger solution is required (F10SC diluted at 1:100) so you should make your own solution from F10SC.
WHICH SHOULD I CHOOSE? F10SC, F10CL or F10 READY TO USE?
Whichever you are more comfortable using, the end result will be the same as each provide the same high levels of safety and effective disinfection. Some prefer the Ready to Use as it is pre-diluted and can be sprayed straight from the bottle. The concentrates - F10SC and F10CL - are most cost effective, but need to be diluted at the correct rate. Some feel the CL is better for them as the dilution rate means that you will ultimately be less wasteful if you do not measure accurately (for high level disinfection you would use 20ml in 1 litre of water, whereas you would only use 4ml of SC in 1 litre of water). Whereas others prefer the SC as it is available in smaller bottles, so is a more space-efficient option.
