Chemicals, Germs, Bacteria, Pathogens and Viruses

What are the ingredients of PPF Disinfect?

The ingredients of PPF Disinfect is hypochlorous acid (HOCl) and water


What is Hypochlorous Acid?

Hypochlorous acid (HOCl) is a highly specialised molecule that is, under normal conditions, manufactured by the white blood cells in the human body, and which is responsible for our immunity. It is also very important in regulating the body’s inflammation process and plays a central role in wound healing.


What is Free Available Chlorine?

Free Available Chlorine (FAC) is chlorine that is present in the form of hypochlorous acid, bleach chlorine or as dissolved chlorine gas. It is ‘free’ in the sense that it has not yet reacted with anything and ‘available’ in the sense that it can and will react if needed. Of these three FAC molecules, hypochlorous acid is by far the most important germ killer. It is also the only completely non-toxic molecule of the three FAC’s.


What is Covid-19?

Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by a newly discovered coronavirus.
Most people infected with the COVID-19 virus will experience mild to moderate respiratory illness and recover without requiring special treatment. Older people, and those with underlying medical problems like cardiovascular disease, diabetes, chronic respiratory disease, and cancer are more likely to develop serious illness and in some cases death.
Some patients may also be asymptomatic, in cases like this the person will have no symptoms but will have the coronavirus and spread it to other people without knowing it.
At this time, there are no specific vaccines or treatments for COVID-19.


What is a virus?

A virus is a submicroscopic parasitic particle that infects cells in biological organisms. Examples of diseases caused by viruses include the common cold, smallpox, SARS MERS, Covid 19and HIV. Connections are being studied which may link viruses to neurological diseases such as multiple sclerosis and chronic fatigue syndrome.


What are bacteria?

Bacteria are single-celled living organisms ubiquitous in every habitat on Earth. They are both harmful and useful to the environment and animals, including humans. Some bacteria act as pathogens and cause disease and illness.


What is a pathogen?

A pathogen or infectious agent is a biological agent that causes disease or illness to its host. A pathogen can be a bacteria, a virus, fungi or a parasite.


What is a germ or bug?

A germ or bug is an informal term for a pathogen, particularly bacteria.


What is biofilm?

A biofilm is a collection of microorganisms which excrete a protective and adhesive slimy matrix. Biofilms can contain many different types of microorganisms, such as bacteria, protozoa and algae. Biofilms have been implicated in a wide variety of microbial infections in the body, including common problems such as urinary tract infections, catheter infections, middle ear infections, the formation of dental plaque, gingivitis (gum disease) and coatings on contact lenses. Biofilms cause the spread of infection through drinking water and are a major problem in wounds, where they protect the pathogens from attempts to kill the germs. PPF Disinfect can successfully eradicate biofilm and is a highly effective disinfectant against bacteria, viruses, pathogens, and germs. However, as Hypochlorous acid is the body’s natural defence mechanism, it does not kill normal bacteria (the good microbiome) responsible for the physiological processes of the human body.


How does PPF Disinfect kill bacteria, germs and viruses?

Bacteria, germs and viruses are surrounded by a cell wall that is negatively charged. PPF Disinfect molecules have a neutral charge so can easily penetrate the cell wall and attack the mitochondria and nucleus thereby destroying the organism.


Fogging with PPF Disinfect

What is fogging or misting?

Disinfectant fogging or misting effectively coats your entire workspace; even the nooks and crannies that are hard to reach by hand. If air can touch it, so can our disinfectant. By diffusing PFF Disinfect through the air in the form of a visible fog, your workspace is fully cleaned and disinfected of 99.9999% of bacteria and viruses in an environmentally friendly (and nose-friendly) process. As the fog spreads out and settles over your space, it brings with it the power of bacteria-demolishing, virus-defeating disinfectants.


How easy is it to fog with PPF Disinfect?

It’s very easy to fog with PPF Disinfect. Our professional staff will provide full training for your staff.


Why would you fog a disinfectant?

Spray/wipe methods are time consuming, labour intensive and provide the least consistent coverage. Fogging or misting an area is faster than wiping a room down and is more effective as the fogger causes the disinfectant to settle onto surfaces and into cracks that you can’t reach with other cleaning methods. A 300 cubic meter room can be disinfected in 2 minutes.


Can I buy or lease a fogging system to use with PPF Disinfect?

Yes you certainly can. We also offer DIY packages that include fogger and disinfectant to suit your needs.
