UN3149 MIXTURE OF HYDROGEN PEROXIDE AND PERACETIC ACID, STABILISED
Causes severe eye damage and skin burns
Hyperox™ consists of a blend of peracetic acid, hydrogen peroxide, acetic acid and surfactant in a long lasting stabilized aqueous solution. Hyperox™ has a broad spectrum biocidal activity and is non-tainting, does not leave residues after application and degrades to acetic acid, oxygen and water, each of which presents low environmental hazards.
GUARANTEE: Peracetic acid: 5% W/W
Hydrogen peroxide: 25% W/W.
INDICATIONS: Hyperox™ is a germicide indicated for disinfection of surfaces and equipments in farm buildings (such as dairy barns, milking parlours, horse barns, piggeries, poultry houses, shelter sheds and other types of livestock buildings), and food-processing plants. It may be used as a spray through pressure washers or spraying apparatus, in wheel or foot dips, or as a mist.
APPLICATION RATES AND METHODS:
Refer to “Precautions” section on the label for appropriate personal protective equipment to be used when handling or applying Hyperox™.
For best results, pre-clean all surfaces using a detergent before using Hyperox™. Prepare a fresh solution of Hyperox™ for each use.
For routine disinfection of hard non-porous surfaces like floors, walls, concrete, plastic, stainless steel, glass, enameled surfaces, tile and any other hard non-porous surfaces which are not harmed by water: A 1:256 solution of Hyperox™ (1 part of Hyperox™ in 255 parts of water) is recommended for disinfection.
In farm premises: Remove all poultry, livestock and feeds from premises during disinfection. Remove all manure, litter and droppings from floors, walls, and surfaces of facilities occupied or traversed by poultry or livestock. Empty all troughs, racks, and other feeding and watering appliances. Using a pressure washer or mechanical sprayer, saturate surfaces with the solution at a rate of 300 mL per square meter (10 minute minimum contact time) and allow surfaces to dry before restocking. Ventilate building, coops and other closed spaces. All treated feed racks, mangers, troughs, automatic feeders, fountains, and waterers must be thoroughly rinsed with potable water prior to reuse.
In food-processing plants: For food contact surfaces, rinse thoroughly with potable water after treatment with Hyperox™.
For disinfection of equipment: A 1:128 solution of Hyperox™ (1 part of Hyperox™ in 127 parts of water) is recommended for cleaning and disinfecting equipment (such as buckets and utensils). Remove heavy soil from equipment to be treated. Allow disinfectant solution to remain in contact with the equipment for at least 10 minutes. Any milking equipment or equipment in contact with food where the product has been used should be flushed with potable water prior to reuse.
For disinfection of foot and wheel dips: Foot and wheel dips disinfection can be made using a 1:128 solution of Hyperox™ (1 part of Hyperox™ in 127 parts of water). Boots and wheels should be immersed for at least one minute, so as to completely wet surfaces and allowed to air dry. Change foot or wheel dips’ solution when soiled or daily.
For disinfection of water systems: A 1:256 solution of Hyperox™ (1 part of Hyperox™ in 255 parts of water) is recommended for water systems disinfection. Drain the system and fill with the solution for a 10 minute contact time. Drain and flush the water lines with potable water after disinfection.
For disinfection by fogging: A 1:10 solution of Hyperox™ (1 part of Hyperox™ in 9 parts of water) is recommended for fogging. Use a thermal or mechanical fogging machine and apply at the rate of 17 mL per cubic meter. Leave for 30 minutes and vent for 30 minutes to 1 hour before re-entry.
