Tough on pathogens but gentle on users and the planet, AHP® efficacy and safety has been validated by peer-reviewed clinical studies worldwide.
Powerful disinfectants are easy to formulate. However, they are often toxic. We responded to this challenge with a unique and innovative chemical synergy that led to the development of Accelerated Hydrogen Peroxide®. AHP® is a synergistic blend of commonly used, safe ingredients that, when combined with low levels of hydrogen peroxide, produces exceptional potency as a germicide and performance as a cleaner. AHP® claims are backed with governmental registrations and extensive third-party analysis and validation.
Our AHP® formulas disinfect against a broad spectrum of pathogens and yet are gentle on users, materials, and the environment. The active ingredient is biodegradable, breaking down into water and oxygen. In Canada, AHP® was the first disinfectant to receive EcoLogo® registration and the first hydrogen peroxide disinfectant to be awarded Design for the Environment by the US EPA.
Hydrogen peroxide has long been known to kill pathogens without being harmful to users. However, this remarkable chemical was not stable enough to be used for commercially viable disinfectants. Virox changed that by developing the patented technology, Accelerated Hydrogen Peroxide®, a stable disinfecting solution combining unmatched efficacy with environmental integrity and application safety.

As with any chemical disinfectant, it is very important to ensure that anything that is introduced into that chemical (such as dispensing pumps used for concentrated solutions that require diluting) is composed of materials compatible with that chemistry.
