Houston, TX – KMG Chemicals, Inc., announced today that Proxitane AHC—the No. 1 broad-spectrum disinfectant in dairy production worldwide—is now EPA-approved and ready for use in U.S. dairy facilities.
Proxitane AHC is a broad-spectrum peracetic acid-based disinfectant that is specially formulated to optimize its disinfectant action via its strong oxidizing action, with no known risk of resistance buildup. Proxitane AHC works by the generation of free oxygen, which ruptures cells and denatures proteins in the target microorganism.
According to Randy Berry, KMG business unit manager for animal health, "Proxitane AHC is a highly effective surface disinfectant against gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria, virus and fungi including several Staphylococcus and Salmonella species and is based on an active ingredient which no microorganism has developed a resistance to in more than 80 years of use. Proxitane AHC has been tested and proven effective againstinfectious bovine rhinotracheitis (IBR) and vesicular stomatitis. Its efficacy is enhanced by the specially formulated surfactant, which provides better stability, penetration, surface retention and added detergent action."
The EPA-approved broad-spectrum disinfectant is ideal for fogging, spraying or immersion. It has cleaning and disinfecting applications for all buildings, vehicles, and containers and is excellent for addressing key pathogenic organisms in a wide array of dairy production. It allows reintroduction of livestock with minimal delay. Proxitane AHC does not stain and leaves no residues.
KMG Animal Health will offer Proxitane AHC in 1-gal. and 2.5-gal. jugs that can be ordered via your animal health products supplier, or visit www.kmgchemicals.com to find a dealer near you.
