The F10® range is highly effective, yet at working dilutions it is safe for both user and animal alike. At working dilutions F10® disinfectant products are non-corrosive, non-tainting, non-irritating, and chlorine- and aldehyde-free. 

With specific test data available, you can be confident in the knowledge that you are using a product that that is not only highly effective but also has high levels of safety.


Studies were carried out by a GLP laboratory in accordance with OECD and EPA guidelines.
