Fighting Coronavirus with AmphoChem’s products and formulations
17 March 2020
For 20 years, AmphoChem has been supplying specialist Cleaning and Disinfection products, blends and formulations suitable for almost every application. Amid the ongoing global events connected to the Coronavirus pandemic, AmphoChem is supporting its customers to meet the global demand for hand sanitisers and disinfectants, providing effective solutions, logistical support and expert knowledge in the supply and distribution of disinfectants.
Leading our range are alcohol-based and alcohol-free and environmentally sound solutions from Nouryon, that have been tested and proved effective against Coronavirus and other enveloped viruses such as Poxviruses and Influenza virus H1N1 (Swine Flu, Mexican flu), among others.
Hand sanitising products commonly use both Ethanol and Isopropanol, with one of the most common products for hand disinfection in particular, in a gel form (“Alcogel”). In some cases, particularly with long-term and frequent use, alcohol-based products may be undesirable to avoid skin irritation. The alcohol-free Arquad MCB (Benzalkonium Chloride) has been found to be effective in the hand sanitation application and indications from tests suggest that Arquad MCB can present a lasting anti-microbial effect, providing peace of mind for suppliers and end users alike as worldwide usage of hand sanitisers surges. The full portfolio is below. For more information on each solution, click to access the relevant information sheet from Nouryon.
