Welcome to Chemical Essentials (Pty) Ltd
**Please note that due to extraordinary Covid-19 related demand we are unable to take on any new customers outside of our key markets at this point in time. Our F10 stocks have been severely stretched and we are focused on ensuring our strategic reserve is able to be fairly distributed to our existing customer base. We hope to be able to change this situation once we have ridden out this unprecedented level of demand. We appreciate your understanding in this matter.**
UPDATE: Friday 22/5 - Both vet wholesale and retail resellers should now have F10SC Vet Disinfectant in stock., as we've pushed out almost 2 full air shipments over the last week and a half.
We'll now sit on a bit of a reserve stock until our next major order, an extremely large sea shipment, arrives in mid-June, and we'll flood the market again when we get this one in. More importantly, F10SC Disinfectant supply is anticipated to continue going forward from there, so at some point we'll catch up and hopefully get out the amount of stock being demanded.
Good luck folks, stay safe, and thank you for your patience if you aren't able to source a particular F10 product at present.
Chemical Essentials (Pty) Ltd is a Melbourne based company that provides cleaning and disinfection products and solutions to a wide variety of industries throughout Australia, as well as specific markets in New Zealand, Singapore and Papua New Guinea. We are the sole importer of the internationally acclaimed F10SC Disinfectant and its related range of advanced cleaning, personal hygiene and animal skin care products. We also offer a range of top quality biosecurity related equipment including automatic chemical blending systems, which prevent product wastage and control costs, fogging machines for air space disinfection, disinfection mats, and electronic hands free soap dispensers. We've also added the exciting Adzorbstar odour control products to our range.
Since opening our doors in Australia in 2001, we have experienced substantial growth and now work with distribution partners in specific markets and service a multitude of customers over the length and breadth of Australia and its neighbouring countries. Despite a number of "copycat" products emerging over the last 10 years, F10SC remains the market leader in veterinary related industries in 2020 as it's benefits simply can't be matched, and there are thousands of happy users in Australia alone.
Our philosophy is simple – efficacy and safety, along with a healthy dose of personal attention! We focus on finding the best products available for the industries we service, and drive our sales through the inherent benefits of these products and our ability to devise solutions to our customers problem areas.
For instance, F10SC Disinfectant’s unique combination of efficacy and safety in the animal production market enables us to provide innovative and cost-effective disease control solutions without compromising workplace safety. A good example of this would be the control of Aspergillis in a large poultry hatchery via dosing of the humidification system water. See our PDF for further details.

Most disinfectants have not been tested against the current Covid-19, however, this abstract shows disinfection efficacy results from the previous outbreak. "In summary, SARS-CoV can be inactivated quite easily with many commonly used disinfectants". See here

BUYER BEWARE - certain other products claim to be half price "F10" when they are not that at all. Check all facts, particularly manufacturer's recommended dilution rates (you'll use a lot more) and contact times (far longer than F10), and you'll find there is a vast difference in performance, and the "half price" actually works out to be way more expensive than F10.
