Frequently Asked Questions

What is Sanosil’s shelf life?

Under ambient conditions Sanosil has a shelf life of 2 years.

How does Sanosil work?

The secret of the Sanosil disinfectants is the combined 2-phase effect of the main ingredients hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) and silver.

The oxygen split off by the hydrogen peroxide attacks the cell walls of the microorganisms upon direct contact. The chemical reaction of the oxygen with molecules in the cell walls denaturises and destroys these. This effect is boosted by silver ions that bind to the disulfide bonds of certain proteins, both of the reproduction complex as well as of the metabolic system of the microorganisms, and deactivate or precipitate these.

To put it simply: the hydrogen peroxide affects the membrane of the microorganisms, the silver the inside. This combined “hammer and ambos” effect boosts and/or exponentiates the biocide effect of hydrogen peroxide and silver on a large scale.

While H2O2 breaks down into water and oxygen (H2O2= H2O+O2) afterwards, minute traces of silver remain on the disinfected surface. These traces are invisible but actively and effectively counteract regermination.

What is so special about Sanosil solution?

Sanosil effectively kills mold, germs, bacteria and odours alike.

Does Sanosil have a harsh smell, like bleach?

No. Sanosil is odour-free and clear.

How does Sanosil compare to other disinfectants?

Superior Efficacy: Sanosil is a broad-spectrum disinfectant that kills a wide range of bacteria, viruses and fungi. It performs equal to, if not better than, other disinfectants.

Why use peroxide based products versus chlorine?

There are many advantages of using peroxide versus chlorine for disinfection. In healthcare and surface disinfection applications. By fogging versus spray and wiping, the product reaches every surface in a room whether visible or not and thus minimizes the impact of human labour inconsistencies. These products are effective, odour-free, economical, do not condense or corrode, have a long shelf life and are safe to use around sensitive equipment. Hydrogen peroxide decomposes into oxygen and water.

Chlorine bleach, while a powerful disinfectant, produces harmful and toxic disinfection by-products. Other issues with chlorinated products include strong odour and corrosion, making them unsuitable for fogging application.

When used in water treatment applications such as drinking water, consumers notice an unpleasant taste and odour. In industrial water treatment applications, the short shelf life and limited efficacy against biofilm create challenges that can be solved with peroxide-based Sanosil products.

What makes Sanosil different from other hydrogen peroxide biocides?

Sanosil is a patented, ready-to-use formula that blends hydrogen peroxide and silver. Hydrogen peroxide is the oxidizing agent and the silver adds a broad-spectrum anti-microbial element to this unique formula. A complex blending process stabilizes the H202 while amplifying the anti-microbial action ten-fold delivering a formula that behaves completely different than its original ingredients. The result is a radical fluid architecture, a multi-faceted killing mechanism against pathogens, with an extended storage life of greater than 1-year.

Why is using Sanosil better than wiping?

Sanosil Disinfectant Spray for surfaces: Wiping spreads germs from surface to surface increasing the chances of cross contamination. Sanosil requires no rinsing and no wiping. Simply spray and walk away. Therefore, Sanosil is the preferred disinfectant for pre-cleaned surfaces and supplemental room disinfection.

Does Sanosil provide residual disinfecting?

Yes. Sanosil leaves behind an undetectable layer of silver ions on surfaces. This helps prevent future contamination of the surface.

On what surfaces can Sanosil be used?

  • Toilets, countertops, sinks
  • Door handles
  • Toys
  • Sports equipment
  • Medical equipment
  • Treadmills
  • Saunas
  • Furniture
  • Magazines

and much more

What does “Touchless Disinfecting” mean?

Wiping spreads germs from surface to surface, it requires no rinsing and no wiping. Simply spray and walk away.
