Although 70% IPA is a readily available disinfectant, it does have its limitations in
comparison to a formulated solution such as AHP® . Alcohols are known to readily
evaporate, making it difficult to achieve the required surface contact time, often making
it ineffective. The lack of detergency capabilities of alcohols makes them insufficient
cleaners. In addition, they are also inactivated in the presence of organic matter and are
known to be highly flammable and volatile.
In comparison, SHYIELD™ contains the patented AHP® technology which is a formulation of
hydrogen peroxide, surfactants and other inert ingredients, which results in a stabilized
and a dramatically more effective disinfectant and cleaner. Not only does AHP® reach its
contact time without the need for additional reapplication steps, it has a HMIS rating of
0/0/0 at in-use dilution and contains ingredients listed on the EPA/Health Canada Inert
list of Generally Regarded as Safe list (GRAS).
