PURAC® Sanilac is widely used in detergent applications because of its descaling and anti-bacterial properties. PURAC® Sanilac is fully supported under the BPR, with approvals for PT1, 2, 3, 4 and 6.
- PURAC® Sanilac increases the H⁺ concentration inside the cell
- If H⁺ supply exceeds the energy supply the bacteria dies
At an inclusion level of 10% PURAC® Sanilac passes EN1276 with an above log 5 reduction on all four of the test required bacteria. However, the inclusion level can be significantly reduced and effectiveness increased when formulated in a synergistic effect with surfactants or alcohols. PURAC® Sanilac is fully compatible with anionic containing systems commonly found in hard surface cleaners. The data table below shows the synergistic effect with Sodium Lauryl Sulphate.
|Log reduction according to EN 1276||E.coli||P.aeruginosa||E.hirae||S.aureus|
|3% Sanilac + 1.5% SLS||>5||>5||>5||>5|
|3% Sanilac + 1.5% SLS, pH 3||>5||>5||>5||>5|
|3% Sanilac + 1.5% SLS, pH 5||>5||>4.5||>5||>5|
