Ecolab disinfectants proven to kill Covid-19 in 30 seconds

Two Ecolab products have been proven effective against coronavirus in tests carried out by Ruhr University Bochum in Germany.

Ecolab's Skinman Soft Protect FF, an alcohol-based hand rub, and surface disinfectant Sirafan Speed, were both proven effective against the virus in independent testing co-ordinated through Dr Brill & Partner GmbH at the university.

Skinman Soft Protect FF is a liquid, alcohol-based hand rub with a skin-friendly formulation with full virucidal efficacy in 30 seconds, according to EN 14476.

Sirafan Speed is a ready-to-use, no-rinse rapid surface disinfectant with a broad efficacy against bacteria, fungi and viruses, used on surfaces such as preparation tables, cutters and slicers.
