Unlike alcohol surface cleaner K14 is independently proven effective against Clostridium difficile and Norovirus as well as 99.9% of other spores, bacteria, fungi and viruses including Ebola, MRSA and Swine Flu, Coronavirus (COVID-19) to name but a few!
No cultural issues, no substance abuse issues, will not irritate the skin and is not flammable and because it is alcohol free K14 provides long lasting residual disinfection long after hands and surfaces have dried.
K14 can help save lives, time, money and labour by reducing the risk of cross infection.
Bacteria, when left to colonise a surface, form what is known as a biofilm. This is made up of the millions bacteria within the colony plus their secretions. K14 coats the biofilm and stops reproduction of the colony. As the colony becomes older it becomes more susceptible to the biocidal technology within K14 which ultimately enters the cell and destroys it.
This mode of action means that K14 is also effective against spores. By coating the bacteria in its spore state it stops the spore from germinating and changing from a dormant endospore to an active vegetative cell.
K14 has a cumulative and residual effect, as it leaves a monomolecular layer that will work for a time after the initial application to combat the reformation of biofilms. This means that over time the incidences of reinfection will reduce and surfaces will come biologically cleaner for longer.
