Contec, Inc. Presenting at Interphex in New York

March 7, 2017 – Spartanburg, SC – Peridox, the next generation of sporicidal disinfectant, is a broad spectrum EPA-registered sporicide, bactericide, virucide, tuberculocide and fungicide that kills spores in 3 minutes. This is important for cleanroom facilities that need to incorporate a fast acting sporicidal disinfectant in their cleaning rotation. Kathy Miscioscio, Senior Technical Service Specialist with Contec, Inc., will speak at Interphex in New York, NY on Tuesday, March 21 at 3:00 p.m. regarding the importance of using a sporicidal disinfectant and what Peridox can offer in terms of short contact times, broad kill claims, and cleaning ability.

Peridox is a chemistry which combines hydrogen peroxide and peracetic acid with proprietary ingredients to dramatically out-perform similar chemistries on the market.  Peridox disinfectant and hard surface cleaner has a 3-minute Sporicidal claim, a 2-minute virucidal and bactericidal claim, and a 1-minute fungicide claim with a chemistry that leaves minimal residue on surfaces.

“It’s important to understand the underlying chemistries of a sporicidal disinfectant,” says Kathy Miscioscio, Senior Technical Service Engineer with Contec, Inc. “This session will shine light on the chemistry of Peridox, the mechanism of biocidal activity, and its unique properties.”

Peridox is available in Ready to Use and Concentrate formulas. For more information about this session at Interphex, click here. Also, visit our booth 1133!
