F10SC is a veterinary disinfectant which achieves a broad spectrum kill of
potentially harmful micro-organisms. It is active against bacteria, viruses, fungi and spores. 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.
At working dilutions it is non-corrosive, non-toxic, non-tainting and non-irritating, and is also chlorine- and aldehyde-free.
Available in 100ml, 200ml, 1 litre and 5 litre bottles
Note - F10SC 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 F10SCXD. Also see our video on the difference between F10SCXD and F10SC, and when you might choose to use one, rather than the other.
These dilution rates mean that F10 is one of the most cost-effective disinfectant ranges on the market.
* 1:250 is recommended for efficiency against most pathogens. If more resistant viruses are known to be present, use at 1:125 (8ml/litre). For general disinfection use at 1:500 (2ml/litre).
F10SC in a less concentrated form (1 litre of SC is the equivalent of 5 litres of CL)
F10SC pre-diluted at 1:250, so can be used straight from the bottle
The same spectrum of kill as F10SC but with added cleaning detergent for a one-step process
Whichever you are more comfortable using, as the end result will be the same. Some feel the CL
is better for them as you need to be less precise with the measuring
(for high level disinfection you would use 20ml in 1 litre of water,
whereas you would only use 4ml of SC in 1 litre of water). Whereas others prefer the smaller bottle of the SC. Ready to Use has the convenience of being pre-diluted, so can be used immediately and is at a recommended dilution for some activities - however buying a concentrate, and diluting it yourself, is more cost effective, and
in some instances a different dilution rate than the one used in the Ready to Use may be required.
