3M Expands Chemical Offering for its Twist 'n Fill System


3M is expanding its chemical offering for its innovative Twist ’n Fill System™  to include a disinfectant that kills germs in three minutes or less. The 3M™ Disinfectant Cleaner RCT Concentrate 40L is specially formatted to cut cleaning time and quickly wipe out a broad spectrum of bacteria, viruses and fungi.

Designed for use in healthcare facilities, schools and more, 3M Disinfectant Cleaner RCT Concentrate cleans, disinfects and deodorizes frequently touched hard surfaces such as bedrails, call buttons, bedside tables, doors and more. The number of applications for the cleaner is matched only by the range of micro-organisms it kills, including:
• Bactericidal: kills many pathogenic bacteria of Healthcare Associated Infections (HAI) concern
• Fungicidal: kills Trichophyton mentagrophytes (athlete’s foot fungus) in 3 minutes
• Virucidal: kills HIV-1 and Influenza Type A in 1 minute or less

“The 3M Disinfectant Cleaner RCT Concentrate is a great addition to our cleaning and disinfecting chemical product offering and fills a need in the market for a short contact time disinfectant,” says Tom Neu, marketing manager for 3M Commercial Solutions Division. “It is easy on surfaces, has no unpleasant odor and, since it is a high-yield concentrate product, it is a very cost-effective solution that can be used daily and will help our customers battle the risks of Healthcare Associated Infections.”

Users of the product will have easy and accurate dispensing, thanks to the 3M Twist ’n Fill System. Featuring a single, compact dispenser designed to accurately mix and dispense 3M Disinfectant Cleaner RCT Concentrate, the system delivers effective, economical dilutions for consistent cleaning performance.

Each 2-liter bottle of 3M Disinfectant Cleaner RCT Concentrate 40L will produce 123 ready-to-use gallons of disinfectant cleaner. 3M Disinfectant Cleaner RCT Concentrate is also available in 1-gallon bottles (not for use in the Twist ’n Fill System) that will produce 257 gallons of disinfectant cleaner (when diluted at a 1:256 ratio).
