DALLAS, Feb. 8, 2021 /PRNewswire/ --Third-party testing conducted by Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) audited Microchem Laboratory confirms that TK60 eliminates 99.99% of COVID-19 in just 20 seconds. This far surpasses the EPA requirement of disinfectants to eliminate 99.9% of COVID-19 in 10 minutes. The complete report can be accessed here. TK60 is a one-step healthcare grade disinfectant produced by R-Water's patented device.
TK60's results are particularly meaningful when considering patient room turn times in overburdened hospitals. A previous case study revealed that when TK60 was evaluated against Virex 256, a commonly used 10-minute contact time disinfectant, room turn time was decreased by an average of 49-minutes. Contact time is the period a product must sit wet on a surface to be effective.
"TK60 is successfully used in numerous hospitals and extended care environments," said Rayne Guest, founder and CEO of R-Water. "By prioritizing operational efficiency, organizations can enable our healthcare heroes to focus on patient care versus cumbersome disinfection procedures. It has been extremely gratifying to hear the feedback from our clients during the pandemic."
Most disinfectants on the EPA List N have a 10-minute contact time. Additionally, almost all of the disinfectants contain hazardous chemicals and require shipping, extensive personal protective equipment, as well as extra labor steps such as precleaning, multiple applications, and rinsing.
TK60 however, is hypoallergenic and produced on-site via a patented device that can provide up to 300 gallons each day. The active ingredient in TK60 is hypochlorous acid (HOCl), the same compound naturally produced by white blood cells to fight infections.
Although TK60 far exceeds EPA standards for efficacy and safety, the agency excludes disinfectants produced by EPA regulated devices from the List N. Therefore, it is imperative that corporations review third party lab reports when choosing a disinfectant to provide the most benefit to their organization.
R-Water is committed to reducing the spread of preventable infectious diseases and unnecessary human and environmental exposure to harmful chemicals.
