Creators of AHP Logo

Creators of AHP Logo

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® formulations are not mere substitutes for current chemistries, they represent the next generation disinfectant technology with demonstrable superiority.

AHP® claims are all backed with governmental registrations and extensive third party analysis and validation. 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.

Unrivalled Benefits

With over 8000 chemical products on the market in North America, choosing the right disinfectant requires more than just identifying what it kills. Decision makers tend to focus on five key criteria when selecting the ideal solution: Cleaning Efficiency, Germicidal Activity, Occupational Health & Safety, Environmental Impact and Material Compatibility. The ideal disinfectant will represent a solution that represents the perfect balance of all five criteria.

FASTER

Delivering superior kill performance with shorter contact times against a broad-spectrum of organisms.

CLEANER

Cleans while it disinfects and disinfects while it cleans in one act.

SAFER

Achieves low EPA toxicity rating: non-toxic, non-irritating, odour-free, emits no VOC’s and does not require personal protection equipment (PPE).

ECO-FRIENDLY

Is biodegradable, easy to dispose and minimal, to no environmental impact.

COMPATIBILITY

Designed to be compatible with a wide range of materials, protecting assets by reducing corrosion and wear.

BALANCE

Delivers the perfect balance between efficacy and safety on users, materials, and the planet.

Sustainable

Tough on pathogens but gentle on users and the planet

Powerful disinfectants are easy to formulate however they are often toxic. On the other hand, more “green” disinfectants typically compromise on potency and performance. Our formulations are unique as they achieve the ideal balance between safety and efficacy. They disinfect against a broad spectrum of pathogens and yet are gentle on users, materials and devices. Best of all, our active ingredient breaks down into water and oxygen for guilt-free disposal with little, to no environmental impact.
