F10 Technical Information

F10 Core Actives

The F10 disinfectant and treatment range are based on F10’s tested and proven core actives – a quaternary ammonium compound, Benzalkonium Chloride, and a biguanide compound, Polyhexamethylene Biguanide (PHMB). The antimicrobial mechanism of action of the F10 products is derived not only from that of each of the individual compounds, but also the novel synergistic action of the components.

F10 Mode of Action

F10 works by disrupting the micro-organism’s cell membrane, causing it to rupture and effecting cell death. The cationic detergents are attracted to the anionic surfaces of micro-organisms, bind to the phospholipids in the cell membrane and denature the proteins impairing permeability.

F10 Efficacy and Safety

  • F10 is proven effective against all known types of pathogens (bacteria, viruses, fungi and fungal spores).
  • Rapid kill times
  • Non-toxic, non-corrosive, and non-irritant at working dilution rates
  • Aldehyde and chlorine free
  • Biodegradable

There is a large amount of independent test data pertaining to the efficacy and safety of the F10 range.
