Ensuring the Compatibility of Our Disinfectants Is a Top Priority

While no disinfectant can guarantee absolute compatibility with all materials, our rigorous in-house testing, strategic collaborations with medical device manufacturers, and stringent external testing at ISO 17025 accredited laboratories for final material compatibility evaluations-affirm that our disinfectants are exceptionally suited for a broad spectrum of surfaces, encompassing various metals, plastics, and polymers.
  • No visible surface damage or effect on the material is likely to occur when used according to label directions. No change to the integrity of the material is expected.
  • Some visible surface damage such as tarnishing or clouding may be seen with long-term exposure. Little to no effect on material intergrity is expected. Periodic wiping of surfaces with a clean damp cloth to remove residue can help to minimize damage.
  • Visible damage to the surface is likely to occur with long-term exposure and some effect on material integrity is possible. Surfaces should be wiped with a clean damp cloth immediately after the contact time has been reached to reduce the risk of damage. Users should evaluate the risk of surface damage vs the benefits of disinfectant efficacy against pathogens to determine whether the products is appropriate for use.

The Diversity of Materials in Healthcare - From Metals and Plastics to Polymers - Makes Compatibility with Disinfectants Crucial

Recognizing and addressing material incompatibilities is crucial in the medical industry. Disinfectants that are not compatible with certain materials can trigger stress cracks in equipment, accelerating wear and tear and shortening their usable lifespan. Moreover, these cracks become breeding grounds for pathogens, rendering the disinfection processes ineffective. The longevity and functionality of medical devices hinge not just on the quality of their construction, but also on the interplay between the materials they are made of and the disinfectants used on them.

The Challenge of Environmental Stress Cracking

Environmental stress cracking presents a major issue in healthcare. When materials, notably plastics and polymers, come into contact with certain disinfectants, they can weaken and prematurely become brittle. The result is not just equipment that wears out faster but surfaces that become challenging to disinfect, turning into safe havens for pathogens.

This issue stems from the myriad of chemical structures that fall under the plastics and polymers categories. While device manufacturers choice of materials is influenced by their physical attributes, cost-effectiveness, and availability, the resilience to disinfectants is vital for patient safety.
On the other hand, disinfectants, which are made of active compounds, solvents, and other additives, need to strike a balance between eradicating microbes and not causing material damage. A lapse in this balance can lead to environmental stress cracking , which weakens plastics prematurely. Prolonged exposure to certain disinfectants can alter polymer structures, making them brittle. Amines, for instance, are notably harsh on some plastics. The consequence? Deepening cracks in equipment, providing hiding spots for pathogens and undermining disinfection.
So what can be done? The remedy lies in a collaborative effort. While surface and device manufacturers should prioritize robust, durable materials, disinfectant producers must innovate with formulations that are gentler on surfaces, without compromising efficacy. At Oro Clean Chemie AG, our commitment echoes this principle, ensuring our disinfectants are both potent and compatible, so you never have to choose between clinical efficacy and equipment longevity.


  • What does it mean when a surface disinfectant is classified as "virucidal"?
    According to EN 14885:2022, the label "virucidal" indicates that a surface disinfectant is effective against all enveloped and non-enveloped viruses, including highly resistant non-enveloped viruses such as poliovirus, adenovirus, and norovirus. A virucidal product offers the user the highest level of protection.
  • What is the difference between "virucidal" and "limited spectrum virucidal" claims for surface disinfectants?
    According to EN 14885:2022, the designation "virucidal" means that a surface disinfectant is effective against all enveloped and non-enveloped viruses, including poliovirus, adenovirus, and norovirus. In contrast, a "limited spectrum virucidal" claim indicates that the disinfectant is effective against all enveloped viruses and a number of non-enveloped viruses including adenovirus and norovirus.
  • What does "virucidal against enveloped viruses" mean?
    The labeling of a surface disinfectant as "virucidal against enveloped viruses" according to EN 14885:2022 signifies that it has passed specific tests confirming its effectiveness against viruses with lipid envelopes, such as the vaccinia virus. Enveloped viruses are characterized by their protective lipid envelopes, and this claim demonstrates the product's proven efficacy in targeting and inactivating this particular group of viruses.
  • What is the significance of evaluating disinfectant efficacy in both clean and dirty conditions according to standards like EN 14476 or EN 17111?
    Assessing disinfectant efficacy in both clean and dirty conditions is crucial to ensure practical effectiveness. In clean conditions, disinfectants are tested on surfaces that are free from visible contaminants. This represents ideal conditions but may not reflect real-world scenarios. In contrast, dirty conditions involve testing on surfaces with organic matter or simulated soil to mimic more challenging, real-world situations. By evaluating disinfectants in both settings, standards like EN 14476 and EN 17111 provide a comprehensive assessment of a disinfectant's ability to perform effectively in various practical environments, helping to ensure safe and reliable disinfection.
  • How is the exposure time determined for disinfectants?
    European standards specify the required exposure times for disinfectants to achieve their claimed efficacy. The standards provide detailed instructions on the duration of contact between the disinfectant and the microorganism to ensure effective inactivation or reduction.
  • What's the main goal of the EN 14885:2022 document, especially in a medical context?
    EN 14885:2022 serves as a comprehensive guide for chemical disinfectants and antiseptics, especially in the medical field. It outlines the standards for testing these products to ensure they are effective and safe for use in various medical settings, like hospitals and clinics. The document helps manufacturers validate their product claims, assists users in selecting appropriate products, and guides regulatory authorities in evaluating these products.
  • Can you explain the difference between 'with mechanical action' and 'without mechanical action' in EN 14885:2022?
    With mechanical action" refers to the process of physically wiping a surface or object with a disinfectant, enhancing the removal of microbes. This is common in settings where thorough cleaning is necessary. "Without mechanical action" means applying the disinfectant without any physical aid, for example through spraying. This method relies solely on the chemical properties of the disinfectant to kill or deactivate microbes. The choice between these methods depends on the specific requirements of the healthcare setting and the type of surface being disinfected.
  • Can disinfectants damage medical device surfaces or affect their performance?
    Yes, certain disinfectants can cause damage to medical device surfaces or alter their performance, particularly if the devices are made of sensitive materials such as soft plastics or rubber. Always use disinfectants that have been tested and proven safe for a large number of materials.
  • What precautions should be taken when using disinfectants on electronic medical equipment?
    When using disinfectants on electronic medical equipment, it's important to avoid spraying directly onto the device. Instead, use a cloth moistened with the disinfectant. Ensure that the disinfectant is compatible with electronic components and that the equipment is powered off and disconnected from power sources before disinfection.
  • Are there any best practices for testing the compatibility of a new disinfectant with healthcare materials?
    Best practices for testing a new disinfectant include conducting spot tests on a small, inconspicuous area of the material, monitoring for any adverse reactions, and verifying the results against the disinfectant's material compatibility chart. It's also recommended to consult with the disinfectant manufacturer for any specific testing protocols or guidelines they may provide.
  • What is EN ISO 21530 and how does it relate to the use of disinfectants in healthcare?
    EN ISO 21530 is a standard that specifies the requirements and test methods for assessing the compatibility of disinfectants with the materials used in medical devices. Its main objective is to ensure that the physical and chemical properties of medical device materials are maintained even after repeated disinfection processes. This ensures that the products can continue to be used safely and effectively in the healthcare sector.
  • How does EN ISO 21530 influence the selection of disinfectants for medical devices?
    EN ISO 21530 has a significant impact on the selection of medical device disinfectants by providing healthcare providers with clear information on which disinfectants have been thoroughly tested and proven to have no harmful effects on the materials used in their medical devices. This enables professionals to select disinfectants that will not compromise the integrity or functionality of the devices and therefore maintain the highest safety standards.
  • How long can microorganisms survive on surfaces?
    Several pathogens common in healthcare environments can survive on dry surfaces for weeks, or even months. Many blood-borne viruses including HIV and HBV can remain infectious for more than a week. Most respiratory viruses can still cause infection for days: two days for influenza virus, seven days for rhinovirus, and up to three months for adenovirus. The gastrointestinal norovirus may persist for more than one week and rotavirus for up to two months. The yeast Candida albicans, bacteria such as Mycobacterium tuberculosis, and enterococci (including vancomycin-resistant enterococci, VRE) can survive for up to four months. Amazingly, there are other pathogens that can survive on surfaces for up to six months or more. These include Escherichia coli, Streptococcus pyogenes, and Staphylococcus aureus (including methicillin-resistant S. aureus, MRSA).
  • Do alcohol-based surface disinfectants require special precautions during application?
    Alcohols are volatile, flammable compounds. In addition to the usual precautions when handling disinfectants, such as wearing protective clothes and safety goggles, those who handle alcohol-based disinfectants must keep them away from heat and any potential source of ignition. It is important to ensure good aeration in order to minimize the inhalation of disinfectant vapors. Also, be aware that alcohols may affect sensitive materials, such as certain plastics. If in doubt, the disinfectant should be tested for compatibility on a small, inconspicuous area before its first use.
  • Why is it recommended to use wipe disinfection instead of spray disinfection?
    Wipe disinfection minimizes the formation of aerosols and therefore reduces the risk of respiratory allergies or irritation of the airways. Moreover, ready-to-use wipes are more practical for rapid cleaning and disinfection of surfaces and single instruments such as hand-pieces and contra-angles.
  • What are the key points to consider when disinfecting surfaces?
    Surfaces need to be dry before disinfection and must be completely coated with the disinfectant for the entire exposure time in order to guarantee maximum effect.
  • Is surface disinfection also required after treating a healthy patient?
    Routine disinfection is mandatory after every patient treatment. Depending on the stage of an infection, carriers of infectious diseases cannot always be readily identified. The infection might not be in its acute stage and typical symptoms may not yet have become apparent. It is also possible that the patient may be recovering from a disease, but is still infectious, such as in the case of a person who has a herpes virus infection. A patient might also be asymptomatic or a healthy carrier of a pathogen such as the hepatitis B or methicillin-resistant Stapyhlococcus aureus (MRSA). These patients are often infectious and represent a serious risk of transmission. In a dental practice, all patients should be considered potentially infectious. As a result, thorough disinfection after every treatment is absolutely essential.
  • Which surfaces require decontamination between patient treatments?
    During treatments, the area around dental chair becomes easily contaminated by splashes, droplets, aerosols, and hands. Therefore, all surfaces within a radius of 2 meters of the patient’s oral cavity must be considered contaminated. The following surfaces always require disinfection and cleaning: dental chair, connectors and switches, swivel table and handles, suction connectors and hoses, spittoon bowl, lights and light handles. It is also important to remember to disinfect drawer and door handles, keyboards, computer mice, and pens. These objects are frequently touched but often neglected during routine disinfection because they are not visibly contaminated.
