How Virkon Disinfectant 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 Powder:

  • Fill a container with 1 litre of lukewarm water. Measure out 10gm of Virkon powder.
  • Pour the 10gm of powder into the container and mix with a long handled spoon / utensil.
  • Allow the powder to dissolve until the solution turns to a clear pink.
  • This 500gm shaker bottle can be used for direct application on spills.
