The CIMAI R&D area has recently developed yet another wide-spectrum disinfectant, ready to use, for application on all types of surfaces.
This product is intended to be an alternative to alcohol-based surface disinfectants, as is the case with our CIM KA, having the advantage of not attacking any surfaces, even those of lower quality plastic.
The CIM HYDROKA it is formulated based on 3 active components: hydrogen peroxide, didecyl-dimethyl-ammonium chloride and benzalkonium chloride. It has a pleasant odor of green apple, acting on the inactivation of various viruses, bacteria and fungi.
Among viruses that are inactivated by CIM HYDROKA, it's the known SARS-CoV-2, an enveloped virus of the order of the Nidovirales, responsible for the disease Covid-19.
This product, once applied, does not require any rinsing. The CIM HYDROKA, it must be used on surfaces previously washed and degreased, in order to optimize its performance. Scientific experiments carried out with one of the main active components of the CIM HYDROKA demonstrate that this inactivates the SARS- CoV-2, in a time interval of 1 to 3 minutes.
The crossing of the various active components of the CIM HYDROKA, gives it a unique biocidal capacity, with a very wide spectrum, of which we indicate some:
Virus: Coronavirus, Vírus Influenza A e B, Rinovirus, Adenovirus, Vírus Hepatite A e B, Norovirus, Enterovirus, Rotavirus.
Bacterias: Gram negative / Gram positive bacteria, Mycobacterium, Bacillus spores, Listeria monocytogenes.
Protozoa: Acanthamoeba polyphaga (trophozoites), Cryptosporidium parvum.
Fungi: Aspergillus niger, Penicillium glaucum, Candida albicans, Trichophyton mentagrophytes, Microsporum canis, Cladosporium cladosporoides, Penicillium verrucosum, Aspergillus versicolo.
The active components, benzalkonium chloride and didecyl-dimethyl-ammonium chloride interact with these glycoproteins, denaturing them and destroying the lipid wall of the virus. In turn, hydrogen peroxide destroys the virus's own genetic material (RNA) and also the interior protein material, by oxidation. Enveloped viruses, such as SARS-CoV-2 , have a double lipid layer (fat) that protects the virus's genetic material and a kind of spines made up of glycoproteins.
