Selectrocide

Selectrocide is the first technology to allow the production of ultra-pure chlorine dioxide at the point of use without expensive equipment or harmful by-products.

  • Selectrocide is a product that can produce ultra-pure chlorine dioxide at the point of use to specific required concentrations.
  • It is convenient, simple to use, and offers you a new way to decontaminate your home or business.
  • EPA approved to kill human coronavirus.

What is Selectrocide?Download PDF

Selectrocide is the industry's elite biocide, disinfectant, sterilant, and sanitizing agent ideal for decontaminating commercial businesses and facilities. This powerhouse of sanitation has multiple applications, including hard, non-porous surface decontamination for many commercial industries. High-traffic commercial businesses, locker rooms, water systems, animal confinement facilities, and agricultural buildings all benefit from the careful use of Selectrocide.

Chlorine dioxide, Selectrocide's active ingredient, has proven itself more effective and user-friendly than bleach. Once a small packet of Selectrocide is added to water and the chemical activates, the resulting cleaning liquid is easier to use and less caustic than other products on the market.

Because the dry, undiluted substance can be dangerous to handle, Selectrocide comes in packaging that requires no skin contact with the chemicals. Simply place the packet in the appropriately sized container of water and wait the indicated time for activation. 

Your order of Selectrocide comes with clear and comprehensive instructions for use as well as testing strips so you are assured of the optimal concentration of the chemical after you mix it.

Help stop the spread of infectious diseases or the growth of algae and bacteria with Selectrocide (EPA Registration No. 74986-5).

What is Chlorine Dioxide?

  • Chlorine dioxide (ClO2) is the ideal biocide, possessing the broadest range of coverage as a bactericide, virucide, algaecide and fungicide.
  • Destroys biofilm with low ppm and with short contact times.
  • Best known as an oxidation technology for disinfecting and deodorizing (physically destroys instead of poisoning).
  • Premier odor elimination technology offered today.
  • Generated in gas or liquid forms in multiple sizes and custom sizes upon request.

Liquid

In an aqueous form, ClO2 functions as a highly selective oxidant and it remains as a free radical which does not hydrolyze in water. Given proper contact time, liquid ClO2 destroys surface contaminants and biofilm, then decomposes into salt ions and water. The liquid can be sprayed or fogged.

Gas

In a gaseous form, ClO2 eliminates foul odors caused by mold, mildew, smoke and other organic sources. It will also eliminate VOC's and chemical odors.

The gas and liquid can be used separately or in tandem as prescribed by our extensively field-tested protocols.

What Makes ClO2 Different?

  • Chlorine dioxide is not to be confused with chlorine bleach. ClO2 does not generate harmful by-products produced by chlorine bleach.
  • The active ingredients physically attack and destroy the microorganisms versus other methods that poison and leach harmful chemicals.
  • Once liquid ClO2 is sprayed on a surface and activated, it penetrates the biofilm, destroying the microorganisms living underneath.
  • Odor-causing bacteria and mold are ultimately destroyed due to their low resistance or tolerance to ClO2.
  • ClO2 breaks down when exposed to light and air so it is biodegradable making it safe for the environment.
