How it works

The active Virkon solution is activated by adding the powder to water.

Virkon disinfectant is a unique, synergised oxidising system based on potassium monopersulphate - works by the physical destruction of pathogens.

The potassium monopersulphate oxidises proteins in bacteria cell walls and viral structures. This is what disrupts the bacteria's physical structure and the viability as pathogens.

Contains a surfactant - combines cleaning and disinfection in one operation.

Step by step prep guide for Virkon Tablets:
• Fill a container with 1 litre of lukewarm water.
• Put two 5gm tablets into the container and mix with a long handled spoon / utensil.
• Allow the tablets to dissolve for ten minutes until the solution turns a clear pink.

Please note that the above instructions are for making 1 litre of Virkon disinfectant solution and is to be used as a guide. You can make 500mls of Virkon solution using only one 5gm tablet.

You can for convenience dissolve the tablet direct into a spray bottle following the same procedures.
