  • 2 New 1-Min. Kill Claims: COVID-19 Virus

    Jun 15, 2021

    Betco® label claims continue to be upgraded in response to the ongoing need for effective cleaning and disinfection. Most recently, both Pine Quat and pH7Q disinfectants have been granted EPA approval for a 1-minute contact time kill claim specifically for SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19.

    While each of these disinfectants previously appeared on EPA List N based on the Emerging Viral Pathogens Policy and efficacy against harder-to-kill adenovirus, they are now scientifically proven against the actual SARS-CoV-2 virus. Supporting lab data based on performance criteria—including product application, surface type, contact time, reproducibility, and consistency of results—has been accepted and approved by the EPA, earning us the official claim.

    In addition to killing SARS-CoV-2, Pine Quat and pH7Q also:

    • Kill over 55 other viruses, bacteria, and fungi
    • Disinfect, clean, and deodorize in 1 easy, labor-saving step
    • Have a neutral pH so will not attack floor finish
