What is Accelerated Hydrogen Peroxide (AHP)? (video)
AHP is a patented synergistic blend of commonly used, safe ingredients that when combined with low levels of hydrogen peroxide dramatically increase its germicidal potency and cleaning performance.
AHP is composed of Hydrogen Peroxide, Surface Acting Agents (surfactants), wetting agents (a substance that reduces the surface tension of a liquid, causing the liquid to spread across or penetrate more easily the surface of a solid) & chelating agents (a substance that helps to reduce metal content and/or hardness of water). The ingredients are all listed on the EPA and Health Canada Inerts lists and the FDA Generally Regarded as Safe List (GRAS). All chemicals used in the formulation of AHP are commonly found in commercial and industrial cleaners and disinfectants.
4 Pillars of Accelerated Hydrogen Peroxide - Cleaner, Faster, Responsible, Sustainable
It has long been known that hydrogen peroxide can kill germs without being harmful to the user. However, up to now, this remarkable chemical has not been considered stable enough to be practical as the foundation for a system of commercial disinfectant cleaners. Virox Technologies Inc. has pioneered the broader acceptance of Hydrogen Peroxide based products with this patented technology known as Accelerated Hydrogen Peroxide (AHP). AHP is a synergistic blend of commonly used, safe ingredients that when combined with low levels of hydrogen peroxide produce exceptional potency as germicide and performance as a cleaner. The benefits and efficacy of AHP have been validated by third party clinical studies conducted by scientific organizations and third party researchers that are recognized by government regulatory agencies in Canada, the U.S and Europe.
Studies show that decision makers tend to focus on four key criteria when selecting a product: Cleaning Efficiency, Germicidal Activity, Personal Health & Safety and the Environment. AHP formulations have been designed with these criteria in mind.
