Iodophor-Based Disinfectants: Effective Surface and Water Sanitization

Iodophor-based non-oxidizing formulation based for surface and water sanitization. It reduces pathogen levels in pond water and is effective against water-borne bacteria and parasites. It works by releasing free iodine ions, which have strong antimicrobial properties, upon contact with microorganisms. Free iodine ions are highly reactive and can damage microbial cells in several ways. They may interfere with cell membranes, proteins, and nucleic acids, disrupting essential cellular functions.

Iodine-based disinfectants are added to water. These compounds are typically water-soluble, allowing the iodine to dissolve and form a solution.

It is a non-chlorine, non-phenol formulation that improves the quality of water, also ensuring a better aquatic environment for aquatic animals.

Key Features of Iodophor-Based Disinfectants

  • Non-chlorine, non-phenol
  • Effective against a wide range of pathogens
  • Stable and longer shelf life
  • Compatible with a variety of materials

Application as a Water Disinfectant

Iodophores extend their prowess to water treatment, addressing the need for safe drinking and recreational water sources. Effective against a spectrum of pathogens, iodophores require meticulous consideration of water quality factors such as temperature, pH, and the presence of organic matter.

Application as a Surface Sanitizer:

In surface disinfection, iodophores prove invaluable. Their compatibility with various hard surfaces in healthcare, laboratories, and food processing settings makes them a trusted choice. Diluting the iodophore solution to the specified concentration is key, optimizing effectiveness without compromising safety. Uniform application, following recommended contact times, and strict adherence to safety protocols ensure a comprehensive and reliable surface disinfection process.

Regular monitoring of iodine residual, coupled with adherence to recommended dosages and contact times, ensures sustained efficacy in water disinfection.

Application Areas:

Dairy & Ice-cream processing, packaged food, juice and beverages, Brewery, Winery, Distillery, hospitals, hotels, poultry, hatcheries, Meat processing, Pharmaceuticals.
