Company Reaches Deal To Use Disinfectant Being Tested By EPA
APEX Surface Care has reached a partnership with Allied BioScience to deploy SurfaceWise, which APEX claims to be the only long-lasting protective disinfectant approved by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to kill and prevent the spread of pathogens, including the novel coronavirus, according to a press release from APEX.
While the company is working with the EPA to extend durability claims, independent studies have already shown durability of the product for up to 90 days, according to APEX.
“SurfaceWise2 is a critical tool that transforms how any building that serves the public can employ lasting protection from COVID-19. There simply isn’t another solution like it that can make the same claims,” says Thomas Holland, CEO of APEX Surface Care. “We’ve been tracking surface coating technology closely through the pandemic and have been hesitant to recommend these solutions, as most companies are making false claims about the efficacy of their products. We are proud to partner with Allied BioScience as they have the actual science and EPA approval to back up their claims. Our pledge is to continue to provide these services correctly and safely, and at a fair, reasonable price.”
When used as directed and applied properly, SurfaceWise2 is a nontoxic solution that provides an invisible barrier to kill viruses such as the coronavirus on interior work surfaces, says APEX.
