Disinfectant Product Information

Where is Electro-Biocide® manufactured?

Electro-Biocide® is manufactured in Denver, CO.

What color should Electro-Biocide® be?

Electro-Biocide® is a transparent yellow fluid while active. It gets its signature color from the powerful dissolved gas, Chlorine Dioxide. Most ClO2 solutions can only retain this gas in suspension for mere hours. SRO's patented technology holds effective concentrations tightly in suspension for months.

How do I know if the Electro-Biocide® I have is no longer effective?

As Electro-Biocide's active ingredient dissipates, the transition from a yellow liquid to clear provides a visual indication of expiration.

Does Electro-Biocide® have an odor?

Yes, it has a standard cleaner type odor. Similar to chlorine but dissipates quickly.

What is the difference between each of the products on your website?

Electro-Biocide® is formulated for food contact surfaces: No rinse required on food contact surfaces. Proven across most hard and soft surfaces.

Hand Sanitizer is formulated to The World Health Organization standards for ethyl alcohol-based hand sanitizers.

Is there gluten in Electro-Biocide® ?

Based on the information provided by our suppliers, there is no gluten expected to be present in our product. Manufacturing Electro-Biocide® contains no proteins or high molecular weight material.

How is the charge in Electro-Biocide® different from electrostatic?​

Using an electrostatic sprayer does not charge a disinfectant the same way Electro-Biocide is charged. Electrostatic sprayers charge the ions in a liquid, so they are attracted to wrap around objects and surfaces. Electro-Biocide on the other hand is charged through a proprietary process that is used in the killing of viruses and bacteria.

Disinfectant General Use

The Use by Date sticker on the container is only 15 days, but can I use after the expiration dates?

Yes, Electro-Biocide® has completed studies that have extended that shelf life to 35 days at a temperature between 70⁰F - 72⁰F and 5 months when Refrigerated between 35⁰F - 39⁰F. We are in the process of getting EPA approval to update the expiration date on the label.

Do I need to wipe off this product after applying it?
