Specification


Viroshield is a broad spectrum heavy duty Defra approved disinfectant that is effective against viruses, bacteria, mycoplasma and fungi.

The unique combination of glutaraldehyde and quaternary ammonium compounds (QAC) works synergistically to achieve the optimum disinfection of poultry housing.

It is active in the presence of organic matter and can be used effectively in both hard and soft water. The special foaming properties of Viroshield give not only a rapid action, but also a longer-lasting contact time than normal conventional disinfectants.


Application Rate:

Ensure all surfaces are covered in foam. For routine disinfection, use at 1-2% (1:100 – 1:50) depending on level of soiling.
