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)?
8 September 2020: The F10 manufacturer, Health and Hygiene Pty Ltd, has provided us with the following information regarding efficacy against Coronavirus (Covid-19), based on new testing by the accredited BluTest Laboratories in the UK:
CORONAVIRUS TEST REPORT Test Report: BS EN 14476:2013 + A2:2019 Chemical disinfectants and antiseptics – quantitative suspension test for the evaluation of virucidal activity in the medical area‐ Test method and requirements (Phase 2/Step 1)
Conclusion: According to EN 14476:2013 + A2:2019, F10SC Veterinary Disinfectant POSSESSES VIRUCIDAL activity at a concentration of 1:250 as tested after 5 MINUTES at 20°C under CLEAN conditions (0.3 g/l bovine albumin) against Vaccinia virus VR‐1549 Elstree strain / Vero cells.
Notes on the test report:
1. BluTest Laboratories Limited is an internationally accredited virology laboratory. 2. EN 14476:2013 + A2:2019 Chemical disinfectants and antiseptics is the EU Standard for all enveloped virus tests in the medical (human medicine) area including coronavirus and as such covers efficacy against COVID-19. All the enveloped viruses listed on 6 pg of the report - all coronaviruses and SARS-CoV-2 can be included in the F10SC disinfectant efficacy claims. 3. To meet the efficacy Standard the product sample must demonstrate at least a 4log reduction of the virus under the test condition. The F10SC disinfectant achieved a 5log reduction in a standard time of 5 minutes at ambient temperature of 200C, refer Vaccinia virus (VR-1549) Elstree strain Test Results on 3pg of the report at a dilution of 1:250 under clean conditions*. 4log indicates a 10,000 times reduction, 5log indicates a 100,000 times reduction and is therefore well in excess of the Standard, a very significant achievement. This also indicates that a higher dilution could achieve a 4log reduction or with a reduced contact time. H&H recommends that the 1:250 be used in practice to take account of possible on-site condition variations.
* F10SC disinfectants are applied after surfaces have been pre-cleaned and the result therefore is representative of on-site conditions.
