Why can't I buy F10 products on your website?
As we only sell F10 products to businesses and not the general public, our site is not an ecommerce platform (except for Adzorbstar Odour Control). We have a list of "brick and mortar" suppliers in the "Where to buy F10" tab, and you will also find it at many more vet clinics and pet stores. In addition, F10 products are sold on a wide variety of online websites, simply Google "F10SC" and take your pick. Should you experience any difficulty in getting hold of our products, please get in touch with us by phone or email and we'll do our best to help you out!
Why can't I leave animals in the area when using your F10 Aerosol fogger?
While the F10 actives themselves are safe, the propellant in the aerosol tins is a mix of butane and ethanol and this is not safe to inhale. Hence animals (and humans) should be out of the room when the F10 Aerosol Fogger is evacuated.
Does F10SC Vet Disinfectant really kill Canine parvovirus?
Yes, it certainly does. We have independent, accredited laboratory testing for F10SC and parvo, at 1:125 with 30mins contact time required, or at 1:100 with a reduced contact time of 15mins.
is it ok to use F10SC when animals are present? Will contact with F10SC hurt them?
F10SC is safe to use with animals present, contact on wet F10 surfaces, or from fogging with F10SC will not cause any issues at correct dilutions. Animals should not be exposed to neat F10 as this can cause skin and eye irritation. Care should be taken with amphibians (frogs and toads) and fish though - these should not be exposed to normal dilutions of F10SC. Treatment of aquariums and terrariums is fine, but best rinsed out properly with water prior to restocking. Please note that F10SC Veterinary Disinfectant is not approved for direct animal treatment in Australia.
I've heard other products are the same as f10sc but cost much less, is this true?
No that's not correct, there is no such mythical product as "half price F10SC". Although some products may share the same active ingredients as F10SC, none of these are identical in overall formulation, and all work somewhat differently. This is normally fairly easy to notice by simply looking at the dilutions needed to kill specific pathogens, and contact times needed to do so. Other "similar" products with lower pack prices require that a lot more concentrate is used, and this pushes the actual usage cost up significantly if used correctly. Once correct dilution factors are taken into account, we believe you'll find that F10SC is the most cost effective, safe and efficient disinfectant on the market.
I can't find product msds's on your website, where are they?

Does F10 kill Coronavirus (Covid-19)?
The F10 manufacturer, Health and Hygiene Pty Ltd, has provided us with the following information regarding efficacy against Coronavirus (Covid-19):
“The F10 formulation has a complete spectrum range of efficacy and can most certainly eliminate enveloped viruses such as Corona. Correctly diluted, it is safe to use in the presence of humans and animals and will not damage equipment or harm the environment. Regarding the F10SC Veterinary Disinfectant we suggest you use a 1:100 (10ml/l) dilution on pre-cleaned surfaces and allow to dry naturally - no rinsing required. This our recommended High Level Disinfection concentration which will be effective if other micro-organisms such as bacteria are also present. If it is not possible to leave to air dry, please allow at least 5 min contact time before rinsing off. The product, at the same dilution, is also safe to use as an air sanitizer and can be applied through a mister, fogging machine or sprayer.
Proper hand hygiene is very important and one of the most effective methods in preventing the spread of the virus. The F10 range includes a number of Hand Hygiene products, all of which will deal with enveloped viruses - details are available on the website: http://healthandhygiene.co.za/hand-hygiene-product-information/ “
“In an emergency, where hand decontamination is required but no hand sanitizers are available, the F10SC (1:100) can be used to effectively sanitize hands as well. Just spray and allow to dry.” “Please note that the groups of disinfectants that the WHO recommends for disinfecting Corona is nowhere near complete and manufacturer's recommendations for dilutions and contact times are crucial in determining a product's performance.”
