The range of F10 Reptile Disinfectants
are based on the core actives of the F10 range. They are proven effective
against all known types of pathogen including
those bacteria (e.g. enterobacteria,
salmonella, E.coli, pseudomaonas, pasturella), viruses, fungi and spores
that specifically affect reptiles.
At working dilutions they are non-corrosive, non-toxic, non-tainting and non-irritating, and are also chlorine- and aldehyde-free.
They won't damage equipment, and can be left to air dry for more a effective and time-efficient disinfection process.
There are two products in the range, detailed below.
A concentrated disinfectant, which achieves a broad spectrum kill of micro-organisms which may be
to reptile species.
It is an excellent product for achieving a high level of biosecurity effectively and safely as it poses no hazard to yourself and is completely safe to use in presence of animals when used at recommended concentrations.
Available in 1 litre bottles.
Ready-to-use, diluted F10CL Reptile Disinfectant, pre-diluted to a 1:50 concentration.
It offers the same broad spectrum kill of potentially harmful micro-organisms as the F10CL, and with the same level of safety.
Available in a 1 litre bottle with a trigger spray or as a 1 litre refill.
Note - The products should be used on surfaces which are already 'clean', but need disinfecting - i.e. remove any visible dirt from the surface before use. For a ‘one-step’ product for light duty cleaning, where a detergent is needed, use F10CLXD Veterinary Disinfectant Cleanser. For the removal of biofilms, use F919SC Degreaser before disinfecting.
These dilution rates mean that F10 is one of the most cost-effective disinfectant ranges on the market.
Note that the Ready to Use is diluted at 1:50 - therefore if a stronger solution (i.e. 1:25) is required it would be necessary to create a solution by diluting F10CL.
* 1:50 is recommended for efficiency against most pathogens. If more resistant viruses are known to be present, use at 1:25 (40ml/litre) (the Ready to Use is pre-diluted at 1:50, so is not suitable when 1:25 is required). For general disinfection use at 1:100 (10ml/litre).
The same disinfecting properties as F10CL, but in a more concentrated form (1litre SC is the equivalent of 5 litres of CL)
The same disinfecting properties as F10CL but with an added cleaning detergent
Biodegradable, single-use wipes impregnated with F10SC for instant clean up and disinfection
Whichever you are more comfortable using, the resulting disinfection performance will be the same. Ready to Use has the convenience of being pre-diluted, so can be used immediately and is at a recommended dilution. Buying the concentrated CL, and diluting it yourself, is more cost effective, and in some instances a different dilution rate may be required - the Ready to Use is the equivalent of F10CL diluted at 1:50 - so having the concentrate gives greater flexibility.
We are happy to help, and advise on the use of these products and how they can fit with your hygiene regime. Please contact us for any information.
The F10 product range is developed and manufactured by Health and Hygiene in South Africa.
