Why use OPTIM 33TB?
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 33TB, 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 effective is OPTIM 33TB?
Norwalk-like viruses (Feline Calicivirus), the Polio virus and even the common cold virus (Rhinovirus) are resistant to many surface disinfectants. But OPTIM 33TB Surface Cleaner & Intermediate Level Disinfectant kills them all in one minute.
It also has a one minute claim against: Mycobacterium terrae, Human Coronavirus (SARS), HIV-1, Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C, Avian Influenza (Bird Flu), Salmonella, E.Coli, Pseudomonas, Staphylococcus aureus MRSA and other viruses & bacteria*, and can achieve a 99.999% broad-spectrum kill of vegetative bacteria in 30 seconds!
How safe is OPTIM 33TB to use?
- No VOCs (volatile organic compounds)
- Non-irritating to eyes and skin*
- No noxious fumes
* according to criteria established under OECD
How safe is OPTIM 33TB for the environment?
OPTIM 33TB 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 33TB?
Given its water base, OPTIM 33TB 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
