Peracetic Acid (PAA)


Proxitabe Peracetic Acid

There is no known antimicrobial resistance to peracetic acid.

Peracetic acid has emerged as the disinfectant of choice over other traditional methods of disinfection.

Advantages of PAA are:

  • A safe sanitizer that kills 99.9999% of microorganism in seconds then breaks down into water, oxygen and carbon dioxide in minutes.

  • Very low concentrations are required to achieve effective disinfection, particularly in comparison to bleach and hydrogen peroxide, where overdosing is a common mistake - making PAA not only a cost effective, efficient disinfecting choice but also a safer alternative for end users.

  • A long shelf life coupled with its environmental credentials results in a product which gives buyers value for their money.

  • Low corrosion risk, which contrasts with some disinfectants that can affect metal surfaces.

  • One of the most frequently used disinfectants for the sterilization of medical devices such as endoscopy equipment as it has such potent disinfecting qualities but does not leave behind any toxic deposits.

  • Leaves no residue or harmful decomposition products. Remains effective in the presence of organic matter and is sporicidal even at low temperatures.

  • In the CDC test was able to completely kill 6-log10 of Mycobacterium chelonae, Enterococcus faecalis, and B. atrophaeus spores with both an organic and inorganic challenge.
