This state-of-the-art non-alkaline phenolic germicidal detergent is a multi-purpose product. Scientifically developed to be both hard water and serum effective in a concentrated system, it produces a use-solution designed to clean, disinfect and deodorize in a simple one-step process. In addition, the non-alkaline formula removes soap scum and hard water scale which can harbor bacteria. Use this product on washable hard non-porous environmental surfaces such as floors, walls, counters, tools, carts, and other equipment in food processing preparation and service facilities, hospitals, nursing homes, healthcare facilities, in animal and avian husbandry, poultry and feed processing facilities, veterinary clinics, animal research facilities and in other indoor areas where antibacterial control measures are necessary.

Use for one-step cleaning, disinfecting and deodorizing of stainless or galvanized steel and chrome, porcelain, plastics, glass, tile, washable painted or varnished surfaces, concrete, as well as resilient vinyl, asphalt, linoleum, rubber, terrazzo and other combination type floors.

Tuberculocidal: Passes A.O.A.C. Tuberculocidal Test vs. Mycobacterium tuberculosis, var. bovis (BCG).

Fungicidal: Passes A.O.A.C. Fungicidal Test vs. Trichophyton mentagrophytes. Passes A.O.A.C. Use-Dilution Test vs Candida albicans (Clinical Isolate), Candida parapsilosis (Clinical isolate).

Efficacy Against Viruses: Passes Virucidal Qualification Test vs. Adenovirus Type 2, Avian Influenza Virus, Avian Reovirus, Canine Distemper Virus, Herpes Simplex Type 2 Virus, Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV-1), Infectious Bronchitis Virus, Infectious Laryngotracheitis Virus, Influenza A2 Virus (Japan), Marek’s Disease Virus, Porcine Rotavirus, Pseudorabies Virus, Transmissible Gastroenteritis Virus, Vaccinia Virus, Porcine Respiratory and Reproductive Syndrome Virus.

When tested by a Virucidal Qualification Test, the HIV-1 virus was completely inactivated by a 1:250 solution in 400 ppm hard water (as CaCO3) with 5% organic soil (serum) in 1 minute at 20°C. Although efficacy at 1 minute contact time for disinfection against HIV-1, this time would not be sufficient for other organisms. Use a 10-minute contact time for disinfection against all of the organisms claimed.

Also passes Virucidal Qualification Test at a 1:62 solution in 400 ppm hard water (as CaCO3) with 5% organic soil (serum) added, 20 minutes at 20-25°C vs. Canine Parvovirus and Infectious Bursal Disease Virus (Lukert Strain).

Odor Control: Eliminates most odors by killing odor-causing bacteria, chemically neutralizing their odors and cleaning unpleasant-smelling soils.

Directions For Use

Solution preparation: Measure water into bucket. Using a One-Stroke Dispenser Pump, to produce a 1:250 solution, add one stroke (32 mL), up and down, for each 8 litres of solution. To produce a 1:62 solution, add one stroke (32 mL), up and down, for each 2 litres of solution. Always add LpH ag to premeasured water. Mix gently. Discard solution when it becomes dirty and replace it with a fresh solution. LpH ag is a complete product. Do not add other chemicals. If frozen, thaw and remix before use.

Hospital disinfection: With a cloth, sponge, mop or brush, apply LpH ag at a 1:250 solution prepared as directed above. Thoroughly wet all surfaces to be cleaned, rub to loosen soils, allow to soak for 10 minutes at 20-25°C, then remove excess solution with a wrung-out applicator. Always remove gross filth mechanically by sweeping before applying LpH ag solution. This product is not for use in the neonatal (newborn) units in hospitals.

SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR CLEANING AND DECONTAMINATION AGAINST HIV-1 (HUMAN IMMUNODEFICIENCY VIRUS) OF SURFACES/OBJECTS SOILED WITH BLOOD/BODY FLUIDS in health care settings or other settings in which there is an expected likelihood of soiling inanimate surfaces/objects with blood or body fluids, and in which the surfaces/objects likely to be soiled with blood or body fluids can be associated with the potential for transmissions of HIV-1: Personal protection: Wear appropriate barrier protection such as latex gloves, gowns, masks or eye coverings. Cleaning procedure: Blood and other body fluids must be thoroughly cleaned from surfaces and objects before application of a 1:250 use-solution at 20-25°C. Prepare and apply solution as directed in paragraph above. Contact time: While the HIV-1 virus is inactivated in 1 minute, use a 10-minute contact time for disinfection of all organisms on the label. Infectious materials disposal: Blood and other body fluids should be autoclaved and disposed of according to local regulations for infectious disposal.

AGRICULTURAL FACILITY CLEANING AND DISINFECTING: Remove or cover all food, feed stuffs, packaging materials and livestock. Remove all litter, manure and other debris from floors and walls; scrape if necessary. Empty all troughs, racks and other feeding and watering appliances. Saturate all surfaces with LpH ag at a 1:250 solution (For Canine Parvovirus or Infectious Bursal Disease Virus use a 1:62 solution for a contact time of 20 minutes). Scrub to loosen soils. Allow to soak for 10 minutes at 20-25°C. For feeders and waterers, rinse; scrub with detergent; rinse thoroughly with potable water. Drain all surfaces and allow to air-dry. Ventilate buildings before use or rehousing livestock. Do not use in milking stalls, milking parlors or milk houses.

FOOD PREPARATION AND PROCESSING FACILITY CLEANING AND DISINFECTION: Cover or remove all food and packaging materials. Remove all loose soils. Saturate all surfaces with LpH ag at a 1:250 solution prepared as directed above. Scrub to loosen soils. Allow to soak for 10 minutes at 20-25°C. Thoroughly rinse all wetted and cleaned surfaces with potable water.

FOGGING AS AN ADJUNCT TO REGULAR CLEANING AND DISINFECTING: This product may be used in fogging (wet misting) as an adjunct either preceding or following regular cleaning and disinfecting procedures in agriculture, animal research, industrial and institutional facilities. Use a 1:250 dilution (4 mL per liter). Fog the desired area at 1 to 2 liters of use dilution per 30 cubic meters using equipment with an automatic timer. Do not remain in treated areas; allow at least two hours after fogging is complete before reentering fogged area. Before fogging remove or carefully protect all food and packaging materials with waterproof coverings. Treated food contact surfaces must be thoroughly scrubbed with this product at a 1:250 dilution and rinsed with potable water before reuse.
