A STRONG, WIDE RANGE - ANTI-VIRUS DISINFECTANT 

A unique patented formulation that is effective against a large group of pathogenic organisms. It is widely applicable to surfaces and in watersystems. 

No other disinfectant has a similar strong composition. This is proven by the efficacy of Virkill.

This product has been tested succesfully against 65 types of viruses from all 19 virus families, 400 species of bacteria and more than 100 species of fungi. 

This list also contains the list A diseases of the OIE, Avian H5N1, Newcastle disease (NCD), Classical Swine Fever and Foot and Mouth Disease. 

The versatility of 
Virkill offers a flexible solution for disinfection of surfaces and watersystems, even in hard water, on porous surfaces, at low temperature and at the presence of organic pollution. 

General features 


Worldwide accepted against Foot and mouth disease, vesicular disease (SVD), Poultry Diseases and general use.
Strong - independent effectively tested  against viral, bacterial and fungal disease causing organisms, including H5N1 Avian Influenza Virus.
Fast-working - a 1% Virkon® S solution is able to kill bacteria within a contacttime of 5 minutes 
(Dutch-555 test) and the parvovirus within 10 minutes.
Application - surfaces, materials, footdip, watersystems and means of transport.
Independent effectively tested  on porous surfaces in hard water, low temperatures and the presence of organic pollution. 
Fast soluble, - 
Virkill powder dissolves quickly in water. 

An environmental friendly product and very safe for humans and animals when used and disposed of as indicated at the label. 
Transport and storing - due to the unique formulation Virkill powder can be transported as air cargo and can be stored for longer periods of time.

Operation 

Virkill oxidizes sulfur bridges in proteins, enzymes and other metabolites, disrupts the function of the celmembrane and causes the leakage of the cell wall. There is no evidence that bacteria develop resistance against Virkill as is expected in other disinfectants. 
Composition 
Virkill is a balanced, stabilized blend of peroxide, surfactants, organic acids and an inorganic buffer system. 

Safety, Health and Environment

Environment 

Virkill is an oxidation-based disinfectant that contains singular organic salts and organic acids. The active ingredient in Virkill breaks down through different ways in the environment, soil and water to singular harmless compounds, potassium salt and oxygen. 

75% of the ingredients in Virkill are inorganic, which break down in the environment to naturally occurring singular inorganic salts. The remaining organic components are classified as quickly biodegradable according to standard OECD and EU tests. 

Virkill is, according to the European standard for classification and labeling of chemicals (R53), not classified as persistent in the environment.

Independent studies have shown that Virkill in solution has no effect on the operation of a wastewater treatment plant. 

Safety 
Independent studies according to the guidelines of the OECD and EU indicate that concentrated Virkill powder shows no visible effects of acute toxicity when exposed to skin or by ingestion. 
Virkill is not classified as harmful or toxic according to European standards for classification and labeling of chemicals. 

In tests done according to the OECD and EU directives, a 1% Virkill solution will not irritate eyes or skin. 

Applications

Virkill unique formulation and it’s wide operating range is very safe for humans and animals. When used as prescribed, this is the disinfectant of your choice, surfaces, materials, vehicles, footdip, watersystems and air disinfection. 

These properties make it ideal for deployment at enterprises with a high health status and SPF (Specific Pathogen Free) companies. 

Surface Disinfection
The number of pathogenic organisms that is still present after standard cleaning can be high enough for a serious threat to livestock. 

The use of a disinfectant that is proven effective against viruses, bacteria, fungi and yeasts, such as Virkill is therefore essential.

Use biocides safely. Before use, read the label and product information.

For each  biocide, the user must adhere to the conditions imposed by the admission in the country. Use plant protection products and Biocides safely. Before use, read the label and the MSDS. Possibility of sale is subject to registration requirements in the different countries.
