Introducing the new OPTIM Blue
- Virucidal, bactericidal, tuberculocidal and fungicidal.
- Superior cleaning performance
- Broad spectrum sanitizing
Why use OPTIM Blue?
When selecting a cleaning and disinfecting product, decision makers will look to answer four questions: Does it clean well? Does it kill germs quickly? How safe is it to use? And how safe is it for the environment?
Hydrogen peroxide is the answer to all those questions, save for two — effective cleaning and fast disinfection. It was never stable enough to be practical as the foundation for a system of commercial disinfectant cleaners until accelerated hydrogen peroxide (AHP) was developed. AHP is the active ingredient in OPTIM Blue, which is made of a blend of commonly used, safe ingredients. When these ingredients are combined with low levels of hydrogen peroxide, it produces exceptional potency as a germicide and performance as a cleaner.
How safe is OPTIM Blue for the environment?
OPTIM Blue is readily biodegradable. Hydrogen peroxide decomposes to water and oxygen within moments of being properly discharged into a drainage system. Its AHP Technology (accelerated hydrogen peroxide) is also the first and only disinfectant cleaner technology approved and certified by EcoLogo – Environmental Choice Program.
How should my practice use OPTIM Blue?
Given its water base, OPTIM Blue will not evaporate quickly like alcohol-based formulas. It is specifically formulated for cleaning and disinfection of hard, non-porous environmental surfaces and non-critical medical devices and equipment including:
- The entire dental unit, cuspidor, overhead lamp & handles (will not dry or crack vinyl and Naugahyde)
- Operatory surfaces, trays, counters, plastics, pens
- X-ray machines, sinks, cabinet handles
- Computer keyboards, doorknobs, bathrooms, telephones, light switches
