Frequently asked questions

What makes Safetouch Antimicrobial Surface Sanitiser & Protectant so different?

In one word durability. Most disinfectants and sanitation products offer what we refer to a 'flash kill'. This means that they kill bacteria when they are applied, but then within a short time they evaporate leaving surfaces vulnerable to recontamination. Safetouch Surface Sanitiser offers residual efficacy - meaning it kills germs and then also sticks around to continually derfend against them. It's this long-lasting antimicrobial protection that sets Safetouch apart.

Does Safetouch Surface Sanitiser product leave a residue?

The Quatlock technology within Safetouch Surface Sanitiser works at a microscopic level - it's tool small for us to see (or even feel) but it's very effective against the nasties that we're trying to protect ourselves against. When used as directed you are unlikely to notice that it is even there

What is the active ingredient?

The active ingredient in our surface sanitiser is called a quaternary ammonium compound, for short we refer to them as Quats. While Quats are an active ingredient in many existing cleaning products, we have taken the science a step further by finding a way to 'lock' the quats onto surfaces for long-lasting antimicrobial protection. Hence the name "Quatlock".
