To prepare Virkon Powder, simply add the powder to water to activate the solution. The active Virkon solution is a unique, synergized oxidizing system based on potassium monopersulphate, which works by the physical destruction of pathogens. The potassium monopersulphate oxidizes proteins in bacteria cell walls and viral structures, disrupting their physical structure and viability as pathogens. The disinfectant solution also contains a surfactant, which combines cleaning and disinfection in one operation.
In summary, Virkon Powder is an effective, easy-to-use disinfectant that can be used to eliminate a wide range of viruses, bacteria, and fungi. With its long shelf life of three years from the date of manufacture, this product is an excellent choice for maintaining a clean and hygienic environment.
