Peracetic acid and the inactivation of viruses

Frequent and thorough cleaning and disinfection of surfaces with which people come into direct contact on a daily basis is key in the fight against Covid-19. Although the virus inactivates gradually over time, depending on the type of surface, it can survive for relatively long periods (several hours or even days). To prevent these surfaces from being a source of cross-contamination and infection, there are many products that can be used to easily inactivate the virus. One is peracetic acid (PAA) which is also recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO) to inactivate the SARS-CoV-2 virus.

What is PAA? Why is it so effective in the fight against viruses? And which products can offer a solution for your company? Read more about the products with and applications of peracetic acid here or contact your Christeyns expert for more information.
