Why choose F10?
F10’s high levels of efficacy and safety set it apart from other products. Used in many countries across the globe the F10 product range is:
- Easy to use
- Independently tried and tested
- Ecologically friendly
- Cost effective
Used predominantly within veterinary medicine in the UK, F10’s combination of superb disinfection results, with high levels of safety, means it is increasingly being used outside this sector. This is particularly the case during the current pandemic, when individuals and organisations are seeking new and better ways to undertake their hygiene regimes, and using products from a field where optimal levels of both efficiency and safety are required.
The F10SC disinfectant on which the range is based has been proven effective against coronavirus in independent tests, alongside all known types of pathogens including bacteria, viruses, fungi and spores.
It has proven rapid kill times of less than 30 secs for gram positive bacteria, 60 secs for gram negative bacteria and a log5 (100,000) reduction in coronavirus in just 5 minutes*
* Using F10SC at 1:250 dilution rate
At working dilutions F10 disinfectant products are non-corrosive, non-toxic, non-tainting, non-irritating, and chlorine- and aldehyde-free.
With this level of safety, after application they can be left to air-dry - even on 'high-touch' surfaces. This increases the contact time, and further improves their efficiency. This is far more effective, and practical, than products which must be rinsed off, or areas being 'off-limits' while the disinfecting process is in place.
The non-corrosive and non-tainting nature also means that they are safe for use with equipment or in office/domestic situations*.
* Note that if using F10 in a fogger, equipment which may be affected by liquids such as computers, televisions, other electrical items, or sensitive machinery, should be covered or removed from the room
The F10 Hand Decontaminants gain their efficiency from F10's disinfecting properties meaning that they can be highly effective without relying on a high alcohol content. The lower alcohol content in the F10 range makes them much gentler on skin and will help increase willingness to use them.
Easy to use
As F10 is so safe, it can - and indeed should - be left to air dry. This removes a step in the disinfecting process, as there is no need to rinse or wipe off, speeding up your hygiene regime.
Alongside traditional methods, the F10 range also offers innovative applications enabling you to ensure more complete disinfection, through simple methods. The Aerosol Disinfectant and Aerosol Fogger are two such products, enabling thorough disinfection of hard to reach places and even the air space in the room.
Independently tried and tested
F10 products have been used by customers for almost 20 years across 35+ countries. F10’s complete spectrum of efficiency has been proven in hundreds of product specific tests by independent accredited laboratories using standard test protocols including EN (EU), APVMA (Aus) AOAC/EPA (USA).
To date F10 has been independently assessed and approved with over 50 company and product registrations by regulatory authorities around the world. Unfortunately the efficacy and safety of disinfectant products put onto the UK market is unregulated meaning many available products have had no independent professional assessment. It is therefore important for you to check the products you are using. Use the guide chart lower down the page for basic help.
The F10 disinfectant range is biodegradable and at working dilution rate is zero hazard rated for EU standards.
Although safety of your family, staff and customers is the number one priority, cost is also a factor. Whilst F10's market-leading position in ensuring the former is clear, don't overlook that its levels of efficiency mean it is also highly cost-effective.
F10SC is a super-concentrated product, which means in most cases it has a higher dilution rate than competitor products - so you use far less each time you disinfect. F10's levels of safety and ease of use also save you valuable ‘application’ and ‘down’ time in the disinfecting process.
For disinfectant solutions knowing the usage cost is key - it is more important than an individual ‘pack cost’. Calculate all your costs when disinfecting using your current product, and then compare it with using F10 - we think F10 will compare favourably.
