PURAC® Sanilac


Powerful cleaning that’s making a difference

Consumers today place a high value on health and cleanliness in their lives … and in the environment.

That’s why it is important that your cleaning products deliver powerful antimicrobial properties in a form that won’t take a toll on the planet. PURAC Sanilac from Corbion provides a safe, yet potent disinfecting alternative to traditional biocides that is non-toxic to humans and natural ecosystems.

In fact, PURAC Sanilac is not a biocide and (aside from some biocidal properties at higher concentrations) is not comparable to traditional biocides such as quaternary ammonium compounds and triclosan. It does, however, provide superior dual-action performance as a highly effective antibacterial and a proven antiviral disinfectant.


Outstanding compatibility with detergent ingredients

Many commonly used detergent ingredients (surfactants and alcohols) work in a complementary fashion with PURAC Sanilac, boosting its antimicrobial performance significantly. This ability to function in harmony with other ingredients makes it possible for our solution to produce a powerful, sanitizing bactericidal agent at low concentrations.
