Chlorisal Disinfectant / Hypochlorous acid (HOCl)
The active ingredient in Chlorisal, Hypochlorous Acid (HOCl), is one of the most potent anti-bacterial and anti-viral disinfectants available. It is accredited with multiple EN tests and is highly effective against mycobacter, fungi, spores and prions as well as deactivating microbial toxins. Having a high redox potential, it is a very effective disinfectant.
HOCl is produced by the phagocytic white blood cells of the immune systems of all mammals to destroy microbes on a cellular level.
The same manufacturing process produces the Chlorisal Clean – a very dilute NaOH. This is also energised and despite its extreme dilution, it is a highly effective degreasing and cleaning agent.
The most effective cleaning practice is 2 stage: clean then disinfect. Chlorisal Clean will remove the dirt that might prevent the Chlorisal Disinfect from touching the remaining microbes. This allows the Disinfect to work optimally.
Resistance against Chlorisal is highly unlikely . This is due to the speed in which Chlorisal Disinfect destroys microbes. It works in seconds by using all or some of the following four methods at the same time:
- Destroys membranes – everything inside the cell leaks out
- Destroys genes – no genetic instructions
- Destroys enzymes – stopping the life functions of the cell
- Destroys proteins – damaging the cell structures
It even kills spores that can be particularly difficult to kill.
