Cinta Sept Against Enveloped Viruses, Bacteria and Yeasts

Kreussler Textile Care launches the disinfecting solvent additive Cinta Sept to fight bacteria, yeasts and enveloped viruses like coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 and its mutants. Cinta Sept is easily usable in the leading solvents in distilling cleaning machines: SOLVONK4, perchloroethylene, hydrocarbons, intense® and SENSENETM. It shows proven limited virucidal activity, meaning that it deactivates enveloped viruses like coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 and its mutants if properly used. By adding Cinta Sept, textiles can be freed from enveloped viruses, bacteria and yeasts quickly and gently, protecting fibers and colours.

Since there are no standards or specifications in the area of disinfection in solvents to date, three of the leading solution providers – Kreussler Textile Care, BÜFA and SEITZ – decided to jointly develop an additive with antimicrobial effectiveness, supported by industry associations and machine manufacturers. Its effectiveness was proven in different tests by an independent testing institute according to several DIN standards. Based on the final formulation, each company developed its own product. Cinta Sept is initially launched in Germany, other contries will follow soon.
