Wiping out biofilms

Why do some outbreaks seem impossible to resolve? Emerging evidence suggests that dry surface biofilms may be the answer.

Exceptional surface compatibility

Thanks to our patented formulation, we’re able to achieve unbeatable efficacy at near-neutral pH. That means, unlike other peracetic acid-based products, Clinell Peracetic Acid Wipes are kind to surfaces.

PAA Icons

Effective dose every time

Our unique dual-layer construction traps microorganisms, whilst added detergents make sure Clinell Peracetic Acid Wipes are just as effective in dirty conditions.

PAA Icons

5x the surface coverage

Thanks to our unique construction, every wipe goes further. In fact, each single Clinell Peracetic Acid Wipe delivers surface coverage equivalent to 5 standard disinfectant wipes. Helping reduce wasted wipes, time and money.
