Over the recent years, people have been using alcohol, iodine and hydrogen peroxide to disinfect surfaces but the problem with these disinfectants is that they are good at disinfecting, at the point when they are wiped over a surface, but they offer no residual benefits, causing at the same time, serious problems to sensitive surfaces and high tech equipment…  Imagine the process of disinfecting an intensive care area: “A nurse starts cleaning and disinfecting the surfaces on the left hand side of the I.C. area, by the time they have reached the right hand side, the freshly cleaned and disinfected surfaces may have been re-colonized by unwanted pathogens…”  

This is clearly a very unsatisfactory procedure. Multidrug-resistant bacteria, viruses, fungi and poor hygiene cause the conditions for increased spread of infection.In many areas, climatic conditions speed up the propagation and spread of germs. The answer to the problem was, the development of a revolutionary solution, combining disinfection and sterilization with long term residual protection –an alcohol-free, one-step disinfectant, able to eliminate deterioration of sensitive equipment. Safe and effective against all bacteria, viruses and fungi, able to inhibit the growth of mold and mildew, and their odors, when used properly.

With Sterilac,the primary objective was to develop a state of the art, 100% non-toxic and effective surface disinfectant that not only disinfects but alsoguarantees a long-lasting effect, until the next disinfection.This is exactly what Sterilac was developed to do:improving safety between the individual disinfectingsteps and giving people a new powerful tool in controlling germs and viruses and other pathogens, for a long period of time.

Sterilac establishes a nanofilm with a long lastingeffect. The technology used here is the sol-gel processthat develops a solid gel phase based on a liquidphase. Sterilacis a “green” technology that can be appliedon surfaces and medical equipment – actually on all kinds of surfaces – to form the incredibly invisible nanofilm. The film can work for up to 10-15 days for eliminating all kinds of bacteria, viruses, fungi and other micro-pathogens…

On the other hand, the ultra-thin film coating ensures that dust, proteins and liquids will adhere loosely to the surface allowing a complete and effortless removal. These surface special refinements make Sterilac ideal for those institutions who are obliged to maintain regular and periodic cleaning and disinfection processes.

To summarize, Sterilac is not a part of a two-component system (first cleaning and then disinfection), but it has been designed to serve as a standalone one-step system to clean, disinfect and shield at the same time. The regular use of Sterilac leads to a continuous improvement of the surface, because the ultra-thin layer. At ”nano” scale, consolidates the resistance and makes it more difficult the adherence of the contaminants on such surface. This results in a stronger protection and a better hygiene of the environment around buildings (such as hotels), protecting the guests and the personnel against cross-infection. 

Certification

  • Sterilac’s multifunctional formula has been certified a medical device class 2a, which determines an advanced cleaning and disinfection. It is clinically proven that the pathogens are removed within few minutes. After Sterilac dries out, forms an ultra-thin layer that stores anti-pathogen agents, released gradually afterwards to kill bacteria, viruses and fungi, in case o recontamination, for 10-15 days. The cleaning is reduced by 50% due to the formation of a Sterilac ultra-thin layer, which makes dust and microbes to adhere with difficulty on the treated surface.
  • Independently tested by the leading Fresenius Institute and the SGS Institute in Hamburg, Sterilac has been certified to kill bacteria, viruses and fungi rapidly with little residual effects and zero toxicity.  An experimental study was carried out by University Hospital Strasbourg proving Sterilac effectiveness in fighting hospital infections.

Water solution biologically safe and eco friendly

Experts agree that careful cleaning and disinfection of environmental surfaces are essential elements of effective infection prevention programs. However, traditional manual cleaning and disinfection practices in hospitals are often suboptimal. This is often due in part to a variety of personnel issues that many Environmental Services departments encounter.  Lack of effective antimicrobial activity for the majority of disinfectants against healthcare-associated pathogens, usually affect the efficacy of disinfection practices.

BNRD, in order to improve that, launched the 100% non toxic and very effective Sterilac this new revolutionary and specialized disinfection solution of surface disinfection.

Fighting hospital infections

In Europe, the prevention of hospital infections is in the core of preoccupations when it comes to the safety of the patients. The wish to improve its quality is found in a number of measures, one of which is the implementation of high standards for cleaning and disinfection. The potential of infection in hospital is a major risk for the managers of the hospitals and other health care units (private practices, dentists, rehabilitation units). Good practices rules ask that the hospitals make and objective from the decrease of the number of patients that get ill as consequence of  infections contracted in hospitals, and from the protection of the hospital staff as well.

Although many of the infections are not directly transmitted to patients from surfaces, these surfaces come into contact with the hands of the hospital staff. Inadequate and/or too rare hand washing contribute to the occurrence of the problem. Therefore, regular cleaning and disinfection of the surfaces in health care units is a critical factor in the contact control with the surfaces and infections transmission.

One of the zones often neglected, but which represents a risk for the patients and the staff is the furniture of the hospital, which may be responsible for as much as 50% of the hospital infections. The medical equipment, wheel chairs, infusion stands, computers, work spaces, are all touched many times during the day by the visitors and staff. The pathogenic agents are spread from individuals to equipment and the other way around, so that the microbes can travel even from hospital to hospital.

The surfaces that undergo an intense contact must be cleaned and disinfected frequently. The easiness of cleaning is obviously an important advantage in the health care units because cleaning and disinfection must cover the whole area of medical equipment, sensitive surfaces, including door knobs, bed frames, washers and toilets.

Our answer is the effective nano-tech green, ready to use solution.

Sterilac’s leading technology creates a high-performance disinfectant transforming procedure for maintaining constant disinfection. Quicker, easier, improves operational efficiency, reduces cost.

Hotels Cleaning and Disinfection Tips

Sterilac’s long lasting formula has been especially created to improve the safety between the individual disinfecting steps, effectively closing the hygiene gap. This advanced formula isskillful weapon for the control and elimination of bacteria and viruses. Regular use of Sterilac leads to further improvement of the surface as the ultra-thin nano-scale layer builds up resistance making it more difficult for the contaminants to adhere to the surface. This results in stronger protection and improved hygienic environment in hotel areas, protecting guests and personnel from cross-contamination. Sterilac is biocompatible and can be used on metals, ceramics, plastic and textiles. Therefore, its use on floors, walls, glass and working surfaces not only disinfects, but also protects them on long term through repeated use at recommended intervals.  

 Sterilac’s patented surface disinfection formula represents a new generation approach that contains a polycondensate, a quaternary compound and sodium pyrithione. This innovative combination makes Sterilac a ”membrane active” agent, which can provide effective antimicrobial activity that targets the inner membrane of bacteria, plasma membrane in yeasts and the denature of virus proteins. Adsorption and penetration of Sterilac into the cell wall and membrane leads to degradation of proteins and DNA, damaging their structure and integrity leading to their death. The unique advantage of Sterilac is the continual antimicrobial activity that offers up to 10-15 days of high level protection.

Target High-Touch Room Surfaces.

Objects and surfaces that are frequently touched by hotel guests such as doorknobs, light switches, nightstands, phones, remotes and bathroom countertops need to be disinfected at least once a day. Germs like influenza can survive on surfaces for hours, and Norovirus, a source of acute gastroenteritis, can survive for weeks at a time, providing ample opportunity for the spread of infection between guests and staff, so it is important to use products that are EPA-registered to kill germs of most concern.

Sterilac is a great and easy-to-use solution, especially those that are EPA-registered to kill influenza and Norovirus on a wide variety of surfaces.

 Dont Neglect Soft Surfaces

Hotels change the sheets and linens after each guest, but other guestroom soft surfaces such as curtains, bedspreads, upholstered furniture and pillows may only get a good washing on a quarterly basis. In between deep cleanings and launderings, quickly refresh, sanitize and disinfect with Sterilac these items, before each new guest arrival.

Sterilac is a water based, ready-to-use solution, EPA-registered to kill illness-causing bacteria on soft surfaces in as little as 30 seconds to help achieve a healthier living environment.

Eliminate Unpleasant Odors

No one likes to walk into a hotel room that smells musty or harbors other unwanted odors that make it seem unclean, such as urine odor. Cleaning professionals can remove odors directly from the air using Sterilac ready-to-use solution, that kills 99.9 percent of airborne, odor-causing bacteria.

In the bathroom, odors can persist on porous, damp surfaces such as grout, which trap the bacteria sources that feed on urine. Humid conditions or wetting the surface can also reactivate the odor. Look for ready-to-use Sterilac, which is the best choice for removing stains and breaking down odor-causing uric acid crystals. Ready-to-use Sterilac solution is also quicker and easier to use because there is no need for any further dilution.

Cleaning in Schools

Efficient cleaning for a healthy school environment.

Safe and healthy school buildings are the business of everyone, but custodians and maintenance staff play a significant role as the front line guardians of the school environment. School buildings are complex facilities that are densely populated with children and adults, making them susceptible to infectious disease outbreaks such as colds, the flu and other diseases like Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). Having a comprehensive Sterilac-cleaning and disinfection program for the entire school can help prevent germs and the spread of disease and cross-contamination.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, here is what you need to know about each:

  • Cleaning:Physically removes germs and dirt with soap/detergent and water. This process does not necessarily kill germs, but rather reduces the risk of infection by removing them.
  • Sanitizing:Lowers the number of germs on surfaces or objects to a safe level, as judged by public health standards or requirements. This process includes a combination of both cleaning and disinfecting to reduce the spread of infection.
  • Disinfecting:Kills germs on surfaces or objects through the use of This process does not necessarily clean dirty surfaces or remove germs, but by killing germs on a surface after it has been cleaned is an important step to further reduce the spread of infection.

Focus on areas that are touched often.

Things like desks, keyboards, doorknobs, taps, and sinks, should be cleaned, sanitized or disinfected regularly. The busier the area, the more attention it should be given when it comes to ridding it of germs.

Routine cleaning and disinfecting is all you need.

Common viruses like the flu are very fragile and do not require extensive disinfecting to kill. The flu virus can die in as little as two hours after being transmitted to a surface so regular, basic sanitizing is all you need to diminish the chances of spreading the infection. However, hardier germs like the Enterovirus, Norovirus, etc.  will require a Sterilac ready-to-use solution and more attention to the process.

Clean and disinfect correctly.

Follow the Sterilac instructions on label, in order to effectively kill germs on hard non-porous surfaces. Only Sterilac solution is effective at remediating germs on hard non-porous surfaces, according to the independent study. In fact, because keeping students, staff and guest safe is a primary objective, it’s imperative that you only use Sterilac that have valid 3rd party testing and is proven at remediating germs. With these cleaning, sanitizing, and disinfecting guidelines, your school can reduce their costs and most importantly, reduce the spread of infections and illness.

Why it’s important?

  • The chemicals found in some cleaning products can cause health problems, including headaches and eye, nose and throat irritation.
  • If products contain volatile organic compounds (VOCs), adverse health effects can include asthma, upper respiratory irritation, fatigue, nasal congestion, nausea and dizziness.
  • Green cleaning products, like ready-to-use Sterilac solution may avoid these health effects and also:
    • Protect the health of students, teachers and custodial staff who use the solution frequently

Advanced Disinfection for Modern Travel

As the world economy grows, air, sea and land transport networks continue to expand in number, speed of travel and the volume of passengers. This allows pathogens to move further, faster and in larger numbers. Infectious diseases can be transported across the globe with greater ease than ever.

Airports

The large numbers of travelers passing throughairports, including tourists, expatriates, labor workers and transit passengers, creates an ideal incubator for communicable diseases. Nearly all surfaces are prone to contamination from germs that cause a whole range of effects from the production of bad odours to fostering the spread of diseases.

Sterilac‘s formulations offer professional surface disinfection, hygiene sanitation and infection control. In this high speed, high volume environment where time is of the essence, Sterilac‘s unique formula is effective in reducing the cleaning time necessary by 50%. Many conventional disinfectants are limited in their effectiveness as they are only active until the solution dries up and evaporates. Bacteria and viruses are then easily able to form again only a few minutes afterwards. In contrast, Sterilac‘s formula once dried, forms an ultra-thin film that contain biocides to actively kill re-emerging germs for up to 10-15 days , as well as loosening the hold of dust, protein and liquids, allowing for complete and effortless removal. This makes Sterilac an ideal disinfectant partner for organizations needing to maintain regular cleaning processes.

Cost Efficiency

Sterilac offers the advantage of easy integration and cost effectiveness into established disinfection plans.
