WHAT IS G-CIDE?

As a stand alone product added to carefully tested formulations, G-cide can be used as a disinfectant, preservative and sanitizer. The range of products which can incorporate G-cide as a substitute for existing ingredients is extensive and spread amongst many industries. Target market choice therefore is based on experience and demand.

New Developments Include:

  • G-cide formulations that have residual effects of up to 14 days.
  • Ability to seal G-cide onto surfaces using vinyl polymers, which creates a slow release of the G-cide onto floors (potential application in chicken houses)
  • The addition of G-cide to medical lubricant gels.
  • Pre-filter disinfection in air-conditioning maintenance is a new application, which is very important in respects to the SARS virus.
  • A product that will prevent fungus growth and various other diseases on golf course greens.
