F919SC Degreaser/Cleaner

F919SC Degreaser/cleaner is an alkaline heavy-duty cleanser with an emulsifying action for removing heavy soiling, protein, fat and natural oil deposits from hard surfaces.

It also incorporates a wetting agent for effective coverage and a soil suspension agent to facilitate easy removal.

Available in 1 litre and 5 litre bottles.

What is F919SC used for?

F919SC should be used on a weekly basis to remove 'films' harbouring a build-up of micro-organisms that detergent based cleaning products leave behind.

Use on:

  • Hard surfaces in medical and veterinary facilities

  • Animal Housing

  • Pipelines and drains

  • Tubing (e.g. ET Tubes, anaesthetic tubes)

Mechanism of action is not reliant upon a mechanical brushing/scrubbing action, but interacts chemically with the organic film to release it from the surface and take it up into suspension where it can be washed away. The clean surface can then be effectively disinfected.

F919SC can be safely applied as a wash, or by using a spray or high-pressure equipment, and its low foaming action also make it suitable for use in CIP systems or crate washes. It is effective in both hot and cold water, and is often used to replace hazardous caustic based products.

NOTE: Although from the same manufacturers, Health and Hygiene, F919SC does not have the same properties as the F10 range of products. It is designed to be a degreaser and as such does not disinfect (although the removal of biofilms by this product does aid in making the disinfecting process more efficient). It should also not come into direct contact with users or their animals.

How to use F919SC & Dilution Rates

IMPORTANT: F919SC Should not come in contact with animals or users skin and should be washed off. It is recommended that the user wears rubber gloves, and if the skin comes in to contact with the solution it is washed with soap and water and a rehydrating hand cream be applied.

  • Clear away debris

  • Wash down the surface/item - ideally with hot water

  • Immediately apply a solution of F919SC (see below for dilution rates)

  • After a contact time of approximately 5 minutes, but before the surface dries, vigorously brush off, or use a high pressure washer to clean the surface

  • On vertical surfaces and those with heavy grease deposits it may be necessary to repeat the process to remove all deposits

The following dilution rates are recommended:

  • For lightly soiled surfaces add 40ml to 10 litres of clean water (or equivalent to create a 1:250 solution)

  • For biofilms, oils, and light fat deposits add 100ml to 10 litres of preferably warm to hot water (or equivalent to create a 1:100 solution)

  • For resistant biofilms and heavy fat deposits add 200ml to 10 litres of hot water (or equivalent to create a 1:50 solution)
