||Hypochlorite solutions are highly corrosive to metal surfaces and will also adversely affect other materials such as silicone sealants
||ViralFx™ powder is corrosive. However, once diluted in water becomes non-corrosive.
||Hypochlorite in-use solutions are unstable land decompose rapidly
||In contrast 1% ViralFx™ solutions remain stable for up to seven days (the activity can be tracked by the degree of fading of the dye present)
||Hypochlorite solutions may cause safety, health, and environmental issues
||There are no known significant environmental affects caused by the component parts of ViralFx™ or its reaction products
||Hypochlorite solutions are irritating and unpleasant to use.
||ViralFx™ has an excellent health and Safety profile and 1% ViralFx™ solutions are nonirritating to the eye or skin.
||Its capacity to degrade textiles/fabrics and dyes is well documented.
||ViralFx™ has greater materials compatibility than hypochlorite and has been used on soft furnishings and carpets without adverse affects being noted
||Hypochlorite solutions will evolve chlorine gas when solutions become acidic
||ViralFx™ are soil tolerant - meaning that the same percentage solution can be used for a wide variety of disinfecting situations likely to be encountered
||Whereas a cleaning step is required prior to Hypochlorite application, which can result in pathogen dispersal
||ViralFx™ is a powder and can be directly applied to body fluid spills to absorb and render them harmless (from an infective perspective) without disturbing the spill
||Hypochlorite solutions show variability in actual shelf life.
||ViralFx™ has a shelf-life of 2 years if securely packed
||Hypochlorite solutions has a shelf life of 3-6 months
||ViralFx™ has a shelf life of 2 years
