Don’t have 10 minutes to let your disinfectant work? This one claims a 5-minute kill time for a variety of surfaces

by Brianna Crandall — March 1, 2019 — Canberra Corporation, a manufacturer of cleaning chemicals for the commercial, institutional and industrial markets, recently introduced two new disinfectants to the Husky line and private brand offering.

Husky 892 Arena Plus Disinfectant and Husky 824 Quick Care Disinfectant incorporate the latest in disinfection technology to effectively eradicate bacteria, viruses and fungi from a variety of surfaces.

Chase Yacko, national sales and marketing manager, Canberra Corporation, remarked:

When we stepped out of our offices and listened to people using standard disinfectants, we found that not only were very few people using them properly, they didn’t have 10 minutes to wait for the disinfectant to do its job.

Unlike other disinfectants in the market with 10-minute kill claims, Husky 892 Arena Plus is formulated to kill bacteria and viruses in five minutes, including norovirus. This neutral pH formula cleans and disinfects in one step, and can be allowed to air-dry instead of being wiped off. Arena Plus is approved for many surfaces, such as tile, finished hardwood and rubber floors, in a variety of environments, including hospitals, long-term care facilities, hotels and schools.

Husky 824 Quick Care is a four-in-one disinfectant that cleans, disinfects, sanitizes and deodorizes. With 50 different kill claims, Quick Care is reportedly effective at killing Influenza Type A in 60 seconds and sanitizing hard surfaces in 15 seconds. Along with its ability to air dry, Quick Care is one of few products on the market today that is registered to sanitize soft, porous surfaces, according to the company.

Yacko pointed out:

Bacteria and viruses can live on soft surfaces for weeks. People tend to forget about the soft surfaces, too — like the chair in a waiting room or the recliner at a movie theater.

Both Husky Arena Plus and Husky Quick Care are concentrated formulas packaged in an easy-to-use, squeeze-and-pour bottle. This design promotes proper dilution while keeping costs low to ensure daily, economical use.

Yacko concluded:

We wanted to deliver a solution that met the needs of the average user. At Canberra, we’re always looking for the next innovation for the market. This is just the next step in delivering on that promise.
