PROPRIETARY NAME AND SIZES

F919SC BioFilm Remover and Heavy Duty Degreaser (liquid, dilute as directed, in 5L, 1 L)

REGISTRATION NO
SABS 1828

COMPOSITION

An alkaline blend of surfactants plus sequesterants and detergents buffered for optimal activity

INDICATIONS

A Biofilm remover and heavy duty cleanser with an emulsifying action for removing heavy soiling, protein, fats, natural oil deposits and biofilm from hard surfaces and equipment safely. Regular use will also prevent the formation of biofilm.

WHAT IS A BIOFILM?

Biofilms are simple to complex microbial ecosystems on surfaces. The ecosystems can consist of bacteria, fungi and/or yeasts that “communicate” with each other in various ways and form a framework/matrix that prevents the effective action of simple disinfectants / antimicrobials.

 

FORMATION OF A BIOFILM

The 5 classic stages of biofilm formation; from initial colonization of surfaces by planctonic bacteria (1-3) to growth into mushroom shaped “adolescent” microcolonies (4) to “seeding” via the aquous medium from mature microcolonies to establish secondary foci (5).

The formation of bacterial biofilms begins with the adhesion of a few bacterial cells to a surface. (It is therefore critical to select effective biocidal disinfectants and to make use of effective methods of disinfection e.g. fogging to access difficult to reach areas.)

MECHANISM OF ACTION

F919SC is effective in removing biofilms from hard surfaces and the insides of pipelines and tubing because the mechanism of action is not reliant upon a mechanical brushing/scrubbing action, but interacts chemically with the organic film to release it from the surface and take it up into suspension where it can be washed away. The clean surface can then be effectively disinfected.

APPLICATIONS

All surfaces in medical and veterinary facilities, pack houses and production facilities Animal Housing
CIP lines and tubing e.g. ET Tubes, anaesthetic tubes
Drains and pipelines
Equipment e.g. buckets, troughs
Tack e.g. bridles and halters

DOSAGE AND DIRECTIONS FOR USE

Clear away debris and wash surface down with preferably hot water. Immediately apply F919SC at a concentration of;

40 ml in 10 L clean water for lightly soiled surfaces
100 ml in 10 L clean water for biofilms, oils and light fat deposits
200 ml in 10 L clean water for resistant biofilms and heavy fat deposits

After a contact time of 5 —10 minutes, but before the surface dries, vigorously brush off or use a HP Washer to clear the surface.

On vertical surfaces and those with heavy grease deposits it may be necessary to repeat the process to remove all deposits.

Replace cap after use.

PRECAUTIONS

As the product is a degreaser it is recommended that the user wears rubber gloves or where the skin comes into contact with the solution to wash off with soap and water and apply a moisturizing hand cream after use.
