Fiberlock IAQ 2500 approved by EPA to kill SARS-CoV-2 in 60 Seconds

The convenient disinfectant solution from Fiberlock quickly kills the novel coronavirus that causes Covid-19, according to new testing, complementing a complete portfolio of solutions for the toughest disinfectant jobs from ICP.

ANDOVER, Massachusetts – September 24, 2020 – ICP Building Solutions Group has announced its 2500 ready-to-use disinfectant has been shown to kill the novel coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2, in 60 seconds, according to new testing accepted by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ICP is one of the first manufacturers to receive approval specifically for SARS-CoV-2. Unlike disinfectants the EPA believes will be effective against SARS-CoV-2 because they kill similar organisms, 2500 has been tested specifically against SARS-CoV-2 and has been shown to kill the virus in 60 seconds. Test results have been approved by the EPA.

2500’s quick, efficient kill time makes it a convenient and highly effective solution in the fight against COVID-19, well-suited for a variety of everyday applications in residential and commercial facilities including homes, schools, office buildings, retail businesses and more. ICP intends to continue testing its other portfolio products against SARS-CoV-2 to offer customers a comprehensive solution for any application.

“For everyday use, kill time is one of the most important factors of efficacy,” said Scott DeLeo, Vice President of Marketing, ICP Building Solutions Group (ICP BSG). “While 2500 has been part of the EPA’s List N for months, the new testing confirms that 2500, with its fast kill time for SARS-CoV-2, makes it ideal for high-touch, high-traffic areas versus comparable everyday disinfectants.”

2500 can be sprayed onto hard surfaces and wiped away without scrubbing for effective and convenient disinfecting. This ease of use and quick kill time make it ideal for everyday use on highly used, nonporous surfaces.

The product complements the ICP BSG Environmental Restoration family of products that are suitable for a wide variety of the toughest disinfectant jobs, including Decon 30; Shockwave ready-to-use; Benefect original formulation and Benefect wipes. This complete suite of authentically botanical and conventional disinfectant options ensure ICP has a disinfectant for all preferences and needs.

“Effective disinfectant solutions make up a key part of the Environmental Restoration group’s business, complementing our full line of restoration and remediation products designed for the toughest jobs on the planet,” said DeLeo. “We’re doing all that we can to leverage that heritage in the fight against COVID-19, with a variety of products that have demonstrated efficacy against the virus. 2500 is our latest solution for everyday disinfecting.”

Shockwave Concentrate: EPA registered and Tested to kill Human Coronavirus under the harshest conditions.

ICP’s Environmental Restoration Group supplies a disinfectant formulation proven effective against Coronavirus in real world situations – Fiberlock’s Shockwave concentrate.  For a product to be EPA Registered as a disinfectant it must pass efficacy testing for each given virus or microorganism.  This test includes exposing the subject strain to the disinfectant and the product must kill over 99.99% of the microorganism to pass. Often an organic soil load is added to create a more challenging test as organic material on the surface reduces the efficacy of a disinfectant. The industry standard is a 5% organic soil load which simulates slightly “dirty” conditions.  ICP’s Shockwave was tested, and EPA registered, against the Human Coronavirus at much higher, more challenging, but real-world scenario 98% soil load.

Label is the Law

When faced with specific challenges, it is important to understand the liability potential and responsibility under the law to follow the precise instruction for use sites, applications, and microorganism kill claims, listed on the products’ packaging.  Remember that a sanitizer doesn’t kill like a disinfectant; THEY ARE NOT THE SAME.  Consider that the specific virus or microorganism must be EPA registered and listed on the product packaging.  Also respect that without the EPA registered listing on the label the product cannot be used for that specific application, by law.  Contractors and industry professionals must educate themselves to prevent liability from false claims or improper use based on the labeling.

Controlling the Virus is the Future

Coronavirus outbreaks can become widespread epidemics or even global pandemics. This virus can live on a surface for hours and possibly as long as a day, depending on temperature and humidity. But Coronavirus can be controlled. Although it’s labor intensive an outbreak can be contained with basic cleaning and disinfecting techniques. Special attention should be paid to common “hot spot” or high touch points like door handles, faucets, water fountain knobs, or even toys that are used by multiple children throughout the day.
