Ontario firm unveils hospital-grade disinfectant to fight COVID

Wednesday, August 19, 2020

A Hamilton-based company is introducing a no-rinse, hospital-grade disinfectant to help cleaning professionals protect the health of building users – and keep businesses open and operating during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Kaivac says its KaiSan II disinfectant is effective against a broad spectrum of pathogens including coronavirus, HIV-1, hepatitis B and C, and the avian influenza.

Tom Morrison, vice president of marketing at Kaivac, explains that a hospital-grade disinfectant is a separate category of disinfectants. It has been proven effective at eliminating many types of nosocomial (healthcare-acquired) bacterial pathogens.

As the name implies, they are generally used in hospitals, clinics, dental offices, or other healthcare-related facilities.

“This new disinfectant is designed specifically for use in restrooms and kitchens, not just in medical settings, but also in schools, universities, and most all commercial locations,” adds Morrison. “It can also be applied using low-pressure sprayers as well as wet misting systems.”
