In China, life is gradually returning back to normal as corona virus outbreak has slowed down. Highly effective ClO2 Disinfectant (Active Oxidant) was/ is being used to protect all sectors like airports, | public transport, aircraft, clinics and medical centers, child care facilities, schools, hotel rooms,
health clubs, spas, commercial centers as well as home and offices. It's to safely and effectively eliminate all microorganisms and provide a long-term sanitized environment for working and living.
Lube PetroChem, has teamed up with the Chinese Chemical Manufacturer, who supplied the same disinfectant to majority (Weifang city, Gaomi city & parts of Wuhan City) of the affected areas, mainly for Airports, Industrial Area, Community . Roads, Police Station & Hospitals. It also helped to C further stop the spread of Corona Virus. See real pictures on field and local TV media.. .
Formulation / Chemistry
It is a Chlorine dioxide-based, using precursor Sodium Chlorite, along with weak food-grade acid solution like Citric Acid. It produces short-lived acidified sodium chlorite (ASC) intermediate which has potent decontaminating properties for hard surfaces by forming Chlorine dioxide as an active oxidant. Chlorine Dioxide is also one of the most effective oxidizing biocide and industrial disinfectant.
AC Active Oxidant benefits
AC Active Oxidant shall be sprayed in outside environment, to mop the floors, and wipe the handles etc. It has similar effectiveness as Ethanol/ Propanol in killing the corona virus, However, the advantage of this product is it can be used In all environment, whereas alcohol can't be used in flammable area, Petrochemical environment & Kitchen etc.
When availability of Ethanol/ Propanol is an issue - AC Active Oxidant ts a better option and provides superior performance.
AC Active Oxidant is more effective than conventional chlorine solution, one of the most commonly used surface disinfectants worldwide. Other chemistries such as alcohols or quaternary ammonium compounds (QACs) can provide reasonable efficacy against bacteria and fungi, but they are far less effective against viruses and mycobacteria plus have no credible efficacy against bacterial spores in acceptable contact times
Chlorine dioxide (CIO2) is as such used as both a disinfectant and an oxidant in drinking water treatment. It has several distinct chemical advantages, which complement the traditional use of chlorine in potable water treatment.
Chlorine dioxide is highly effective in controlling waterborne pathogens while minimizing halogenated disinfection by-products. Chlorine dioxide is a broadspectrum micro biocide as effective as chlorine against viruses, bacteria, and fungi, and more effective than chlorine for the inactivation of the encysted parasites Giardia and Cryptosporidium. Chlorine dioxide is also an effective control strategy for taste, odor, color, iron, and manganese removal.
In hospitals and other healthcare environments, chlorine dioxide helps to sterilize medical and laboratory equipment, surfaces, rooms and tools. It is typically chosen for medical devices disinfection due to their speed and broad-spectrum efficacy.
