FAQs

  • Why can't I just use plain Hydrogen Peroxide?

    1. The symbiotic relationshipe between hydrogen peroxide and silver makes, PeroxsilAg+ 20 times more powerful than hydrogen peroxide alone.
    2. Plain hydrogen peroxide has no residual disinfecting properties once a surface has been sanitized.
    3. Neither hydrogen peroxide nor chlorine is effective against bio-film.

  • Why should I be concerned about Bio-Film?

    For every pathogenic cell in the water there are 10 000 within the biofilm, and once a biofilm has formed it is 1000 times more resistant to biocides.
    It's really important that you read this.

  • What is PeroxsilAg+ ?

    PeroxsilAg+ is a proprietary formula made from a unique blend of hydrogen peroxide and silver. It is ideal for surface disinfection and water treatment.

  • How does PeroxsilAg+ work?

    PeroxsilAg+ is the combined 2-phase effect of the main ingredients hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) and silver.

    The oxygen split off by the hydrogen peroxide attacks the cell walls of the microorganisms upon direct contact. The chemical reaction of the oxygen with molecules in the cell walls denaturises and destroys these. This effect is boosted by silver ions that bind to the disulfide bonds of certain proteins, both of the reproduction complex as well as of the metabolic system of the microorganisms, and deactivate or precipitate these.

    To put it simply: the hydrogen peroxide affects the membrane of the microorganisms, the silver the inside. This combined “hammer and ambos” effect boosts and/or exponentiates the biocide effect of hydrogen peroxide and silver on a large scale.

    While H2O2 breaks down into water and oxygen (H2O2= H2O+O2) afterwards, minute traces of silver remain on the disinfected surface. These traces are invisible and non-toxic but actively and effectively counteract regermination.

  • What is so special about PeroxsilAg+ ?

    PeroxsilAg+ effectively kills mold, germs, bacteria and odours alike. It has been proven to be 99.9999% effective and there is no known microbiological resistance to it. PeroxsilAg+ is non-harmful to surfaces and leaves no residue behind.

  • What is the shelf life of PeroxsilAg+?

    At room temperature, PeroxsilAg+ shelf life is 3 years.

  • Is PeroxsilAg+ safe and non-toxic?

    Yes. PeroxsilAg+ has a very low toxicity rating which means it is safe for you, your pets and the environment. In fact, the ingredients in PeroxsilAg+ have been used medicinally for hundreds of years to help boost the immune system.

  • Does PeroxsilAg+ have a harsh smell, like bleach?

    No. PeroxsilAg+ is odour-free and clear.

  • Is PeroxsilAg+ environmentally friendly?

    Yes. The ingredients in PeroxsilAg+ decompose into water and oxygen, and do not contaminate the environment with any toxic by-products.

  • How does PeroxsilAg+ compare to other disinfectants?

    Superior Efficacy: PeroxsilAg+ is a broad-spectrum disinfectant that kills a wide range of bacteria, viruses and fungi. It performs equal to, if not better than, other disinfectants.

    Improved Safety: Bleach and other leading disinfectants are carcinogenic (cancer-causing) and mutagenic (mutates genes). They also cause severe eye, skin and lung irritation. PeroxsilAg+ contains no toxic ingredients, and is the safer choice for disinfecting.

    Seriously consider changing your disinfectant to PeroxsilAg+: Farmers have one of the highest cancer rates of all professions. See the comparison chart and special report.

  • Why use peroxide based products versus chlorine?

    There are many advantages of using peroxide versus chlorine for disinfection. In healthcare and surface disinfection applications, PeroxsilAg+ ’s peroxide based disinfection products are EPA approved for fogging. By fogging versus spray and wiping, the product reaches every surface in a room whether visible or not and thus minimizes the impact of human labour inconsistencies. These products are effective, odour-free, economical, do not condense or corrode, have a long shelf life and are safe to use around sensitive equipment. Hydrogen peroxide decomposes into oxygen and water and is safe for people and the environment.

    Chlorine bleach, while a powerful disinfectant, produces harmful and toxic disinfection by-products. Other issues with chlorinated products include strong odour and corrosion, making them unsuitable for fogging application.

    When used in water treatment applications such as drinking water, consumers notice an unpleasant taste and odour. In industrial water treatment applications, the short shelf life and limited efficacy against biofilm create challenges that can be solved with peroxide-based PeroxsilAg+ products.

  • What makes PeroxsilAg+ different from other hydrogen peroxide biocides?

    PeroxsilAg+ is a ready-to-use formula that blends hydrogen peroxide and silver. Hydrogen peroxide is the oxidizing agent and the nano silver adds a broad-spectrum anti-microbial element to this unique formula. A complex blending process stabilizes the H202 while amplifying the anti-microbial action ten-fold delivering a formula that behaves completely different than its original ingredients. The result is a radical fluid architecture, a multi-faceted killing mechanism against pathogens, with an extended storage life.

  • Does PeroxsilAg+ provide residual disinfecting?

    Yes. PeroxsilAg+ leaves behind a safe, undetectable layer of silver ions on surfaces. This helps prevent future contamination of the surface.
