COMPETENCE 4 Best cleaning performance with confirmed skin and mucous membrane compatibility The new Bacillol® 30 Sensitive: Triple award-winner Tested wfk quality of the tissues: Best cleaning performance of the tissues compared to the competition*,** In order to prove the cleaning performance of Bacillol® 30 Sensitive, the wfk - Institut für Angewandte Forschung GmbH, Krefeld tested 14 different ready-to-use disinfectant wipes [1]. For this purpose, white, glazed tiles were soiled in a controlled manner and the dirt was then also baked in the drying cabinet. The tiles were cleaned with the help of an automatic multitrack wiper on which the respective wipes were attached. After rinsing and drying, five referees visually assessed the cleaning performance using a 10-point photo scale. The result: Together with Bacillol® 30 Tissues Bacillol® 30 Sensitive Tissues clearly performed best in comparison with the competition *,** [1]. For almost 100 years, the Bacillol® brand has been successfully represented on the market with various products for surface disinfection. At the same time, we at HARTMANN are constantly improving our products to take account of customer wishes and changes in application. For the new Bacillol® 30 Sensitive, which has been available since January as tissues as well as foam, the desire for a particularly skin-friendly, surface-friendly and at the same time more powerful disinfectant was the main focus. The independent awards from the wfk - Institut für Angewandte Forschung GmbH, Krefeld [1], the SGS Institute Fresenius [2] and the European Centre for Allergy Research Foundation ECARF [3,4] as well as the initial feedback from our customers confirm that we have succeeded in implementing these wishes.

Dotted line is the arithmetic mean of the cleaning performance of all wipes We are particularly impressed with the new Bacillol® 30 Sensitive Tissues because they are really gentle on surfaces and do not form streaks. The surface is objectively clean and streak-free. ” ” Birgit Ehrhardt, Facility Management Diakoniewerk Martinsberg e.
