Silver Stabilised Hydrogen Peroxide – The Power of EndoSan
EndoSan is the most advanced silver stabilised hydrogen peroxide water treatment product on the market. Here is the secret behind its power:
EndoSan is a solution of hydrogen peroxide which is stabilised using a specially formulated silver based chemistry. The stabilisation process is unique and makes EndoSan a powerful water disinfectant that provides a very wide spectrum of biocidal activity. Independent testing has shown that EndoSan is a highly effective bactericide, virucide, sporicide, fungicide, algaecide and amoebicide.
The EndoSan range of products is used for disinfection purposes in a wide variety of applications and is proving to be extremely popular across many market sectors, including Food and Beverage, Sports & Leisure, Cosmetics & Pharmaceutical, Water Treatment, Agriculture, Medical & Nursing, Cooling Towers, Fish, Meat, Poultry, Food Processing, Drinking Water, Swimming Pools, Sewage Treatment, etc.
Independent testing of Endosan shows that it is a fast legionella bactericide, a very effective amoebicide (it kills the Trojan horses) and it removes and treats biofilm, making it an ideal biocide for legionella control. This triple action makes EndoSan absolutely unique and positions the chemical as a real contender to replace chlorine and chlorine dioxide as a continuous dose biocide.
Endosan should never be confused with normal hydrogen peroxide! Here is why:
HYDROGEN PEROXIDE AS A DISINFECTANT
Hydrogen peroxide is potentially a great biocide. It is a stronger and more effective oxidising agent than chlorine and chlorine dioxide. It is less toxic and breaks down into water and oxygen.
There are downsides to normal hydrogen peroxide however –
- It reacts with Catalase. Catalase is a protein which bacteria emit as a shield to protect themselves from hydrogen peroxide. Different types of bacteria emit different amounts of catalase. The legionella bacterium emits low levels of catalase and is relatively easy to kill with the correct strength of Hydrogen Peroxide, whereas the Pseudomonas bacterium emits high levels of catalase making it more difficult to kill.
- Normal hydrogen peroxide is fairly unstable causing it to be effective for very short periods of time, particularly when used as a water disinfectant.
- The effectiveness of normal hydrogen peroxide is compromised by high hot water temperatures.
SILVER AS A DISINFECTANT
The weak disinfecting properties of silver have been known since Roman times. The metal acts as a biostat rather than a biocide. – It stops bacteria breeding rather than killing them, Silver does react with protein however and therefore has a role to play in removing catalase.
SILVER AND HYDROGEN PEROXIDE
HOW ENDOSAN A SILVER STABILISED HYDROGEN PEROXIDE WORKS
The positive silver ion in the stabilising formulation is attracted to the cell wall of the bacterium by electrostatic attraction. In catalase producing bacterium the presence of EndoSan inhibits the defence mechanism, allowing the powerful free hydroxyl radicals to attack the cell membrane. These free hydroxyl radicals penetrate the membrane and destroy the bacterium. Once killed the bacterium no longer emits electrostatic charge. When the attack is complete the peroxide is attracted back to the silver stabilising solution maintaining product concentration in the water.
With its unique combination silver stabilised hydrogen peroxide, EndoSan truly is the next generation of disinfection technology. EndoSan has more global approvals than any of its competitors and is the only product of its kind in the world to have achieved NSF/ANSI STANDARD 60 approval for use in drinking water and is BPR compliant. It is the most effective silver stabilised hydrogen peroxide product on the global market and its efficacy is unmatched in both low and high concentrations.
