Selectrocide® Disinfectant is EPA approved to kill Human Coronavirus.

With the increasing global concern regarding the latest strain of coronavirus, we would like to announce a change to our product labels. Unlike many commercially available disinfectants, Selectrocide® products have carried a human coronavirus claim for years. However, because of the complexity and length of our EPA registered label, it is often overlooked by customers and end-users.

Based on the number of calls, emails and web inquiries we have received, we will be making a change to the Selectrocide® label. Effective immediately all Selectrocide® products will feature prominent language with the words “Kills Coronavirus” on the front-facing portion of our labels. This language will be in larger font and separate from the bulk of the label text.

This language change is approved by the EPA and has been reviewed by both our internal regulatory department as well as our outside legal counsel.

Selectrocide® Disinfectant


Chlorine dioxide should not be confused with chlorine. While chlorine dioxide has chlorine in its name, chlorine dioxide reaction chemistry is radically different from that of chlorine and they produce very different by-products. Chlorine dioxide’s only by-products are salt ions and water.

Why It Works

Chlorine dioxide is a stable free radical, and functions as an oxidative rather than a chlorinating reaction. Chlorine dioxide’s oxidative power allows it to attack the cell walls, creating breaches. These breaches cause leakage of the cell contents, ultimately cutting off the supply of the cell’s nutrients thus killing it. In contrast, current traditional disinfection methods are designed to poison the microorganisms. But as the microorganisms build resistance and become immune to the poison, new and stronger products have to be developed.


How It Works

Selectrocide Disinfectant destroys the invisible, protective layer known as bio-film and quickly kills the microorganisms which hide and thrive under this protective coating. Traditional disinfection products are unable to quickly penetrate the biofilm and because of this, they are ineffective.
