Our Oxivir range has been shortlisted for the Tomorrow’s HEALTH & SAFETY Awards 2020.
Oxivir products from Diversey offer a safer, fast-acting and broad-spectrum alternative to cleaning and disinfection formulations containing chlorine or quats as the active ingredient. Each product instead contains patented Accelerated Hydrogen Peroxide (AHP) – a blend of commonly used, safe ingredients and low levels of hydrogen peroxide. This dramatically increases the potency and cleaning performance of Oxivir products against a wide range of pathogens including bacteria, viruses and yeasts.
AHP degrades to oxygen and water alone shortly after use without leaving residues or stains. This helps make formulations containing it safer to use than traditional chlorine- and quat-based products. Chlorine-based products are suspected of aggravating asthma and other respiratory problems and they can also form chlorine compounds in the atmosphere.
Products containing AHP generally have lower classification than traditional alternatives: some have no safety classification whereas chlorine-based products usually carry a hazard symbol. Lower classification helps to simplify compliance, training and implementation processes. Products containing AHP are generally compatible with a wide range of surfaces without causing damage.
Oxivir Excel in an excellent cleaner-disinfectant designed to replace general surface cleaning products for daily tasks and provide affordable and effective ongoing infection protection. It is bactericidal against multi-drug resistant organisms (MDROs) and viricidal in five minutes. It is viricidal against Norovirus in 30 seconds. It is yeasticidal against Candida albicans.
Oxivir Sporicide is a ready-to-use one step hospital-grade, cleaner-disinfectant with excellent response against hard-to-kill pathogens such as C. diff spores, Bacillus subtilis and other MDROs in 60 seconds. Its “irritant” classification is much lower than traditional alternatives.
Diversey also offers disposable ready-to-use Oxivir Excel wipes and the Oxivir Spill Kit. These enable users to contain and remove body spillages quickly and safely before pathogens have a chance to cause further contamination.
