JohnsonDiversey Inc. Launches New Revolutionary Cleaner Disinfectant


CHICAGO -- JohnsonDiversey Inc. announces the  introduction of Johnson Wax Professional Oxivir Tb, a ready-to-use  cleaner disinfectant that disinfects surfaces with a one-minute contact time.  Ideal for healthcare facilities, Oxivir Tb is a general virucide,  bactericide, tuberculocide, fungicide, sanitizer and cleaner formulated with  patented accelerated hydrogen peroxide technology.

"There are two features that really make Oxivir Tb revolutionary," says Steve Thomson, product manager with JohnsonDiversey. "The first is its one-minute contact time for disinfection. Traditionally, some disinfectants have to dwell  on surfaces up to 10 minutes. Oxivir Tb cleaner disinfectant's one-minute  contact time ensures cleaning staff use the product in compliance with  disinfection procedures."

When left wet on a pre-cleaned surface for one minute, Oxivir Tb cleaner disinfectant is designed to be bactericidal and virucidal, which means healthcare facilities staff can kill HBV, HCV and HIV-1 in one minute. With a five-minute contact time, Oxivir Tb works as a tuberculocide, and after 10 minutes, the cleaner disinfectant kills fungi.

"The second great feature of Oxivir Tb cleaner disinfectant is its environmental profile," Thomson says. "The product does not contain any volatile organic compounds (VOCs) or nonylphenol ethoxylates (NPEs). The product does not have a strong fragrance that could be irritating to patients and the formula's active ingredient breaks down into water and oxygen."

Oxivir Tb cleaner disinfectant can be used with microfiber cleaning tools with no loss of its active ingredient and is safe for use throughout healthcare facilities, from patient rooms to public areas. The product can be used on surfaces such as vinyl, plastic, chrome, glazed ceramic, porcelain and tile and can also be used to disinfect hospital items, such as wheelchairs, mattress covers, bed pans and almost any washable food and non-food contact surface where disinfection is required.

When used in compliance with cleaning and disinfecting procedures, Oxivir Tb cleaner disinfectant helps decrease the risk as well as the costs associated with hospital-acquired infections. The product also meets the U.S. Occupational Health and Safety Administration's blood-borne pathogen  standards for clean-up of blood and bodily fluids.

"Healthcare professionals like Oxivir Tb cleaner disinfectant because it is a patient-friendly, staff-friendly product," Thomson says. "The product gives hospital staff peace of mind and confidence that they are breaking the chain of infection."
