Benefits of using F10 SC Veterinary Disinfectant:

  • Apart from the superior safety aspect, other benefits of using F10 Vet Disinfectant include:
  • Total spectrum of kill – bactericidal, virucidal, fungicidal, sporicidal, tuberculocidal. While many products claim to kill “everything instantly”, the reality is quite different. F10 SC Veterinary Disinfectant is a genuine high performance disinfectant, that targets and kills all of the above groups of microbes.
  • Rapid speed of kill – 30 secs Gram +ve bacteria and 60 secs Gram -ve bacteria at a 1:500 dilution. This rapid kill means a quick spray and wipe with F10SC disinfectant is actually killing off pathogens like Staphylococcus and E.coli.
  • Unique chemical compound based on biguanide/quaternary ammonium actives combination - less chance of resistance build up than with a single active ingredient.
  • Cost effective - usage cost varies from 13c to 54c per diluted litre depending on the concentration used (generally 40% of the cost of Virkon). F10SC Vet Disinfectant is also considerably less expensive than other products that share similar ingredients, due to F10SC Vet’s far greater dilution rate.
  • Non-corrosive, non-toxic, non-tainting, non-irritating, totally safe to handle and not hazardous.
  • Biodegradable and given an EU Ecological rating of "zero hazard" (suitable for septic systems too)

  • Highly effective at low concentrations
  • No rinse off required after use - just apply and leave to dry
  • Proven in a wide range of different pharmaceutical, SPF, agricultural, food processing and laboratory applications
