Actizone™ F5 Delivers Antiviral Surface Protection for 24 Hours

Solvay’s Actizone™ F5 has been verified for 24-hour virus protection on a variety of commonly used surfaces. The company says it has been scientifically proven to deliver long-lasting protection from viruses, such as the coronavirus, on frequently touched surfaces.

Based on the residual antimicrobial method PAS 2424, this new testing method simulates end-use conditions, such as frequent abrasions, to verify the long-term efficacy of an antiviral disinfectant.

Actizone™ technology offers unique germ protection by trapping antimicrobial actives on surfaces and forming film that kills bacteria and viruses while remaining available for 24-hour disinfection. These active ingredients combine cleaning benefits with antibacterial and antiviral protection.
