What is Continuously Active Disinfection or CAD?Show Answer
Sani-24® Germicidal Spray not only has the ability to rapidly disinfect epidemiologically important pathogens, but utilizes Continuously Active Disinfection to prevent ESKAPE responsible for ~40% of HAIs from recontaminating or recolonizing on a surface for up to 24 hours.
CAD is effective against ESKAPE pathogens:
● Acinetobacter baumannii MDR
● Enterobacter aerogenes
● Enterobacter aerogenes MDR
● Enterococcus faecalis VRE (Vancomycin resistant enterococcus)
● New Delhi Metallo-beta-lactamase-1 (NDM-1) producing Klebsiella pneumoniae (CRE – Carbapenem resistant Enterobacteriaceae)
● Pseudomonas aeruginosa
● Staphylococcus aureus
● Staphylococcus aureus (Methicillin Resistant) (MRSA)
What is the contact time for Sani-24® Germicidal Spray and Wipe?Show Answer
The Sani-24 Wipe is effective against 27 microorganisms, including SARS-CoV-2, within a 1-minute contact time. Additional organisms are included within a 5-minute contact time; specific details listed below:

What is the shelf life for Sani-24® Germicidal Spray and Wipe?Show Answer
The shelf life for the Sani-24® Wipe and Spray is 24 months or 2 years from the date of manufacture. Product can be used until the expiration date, even after being opened. Expiration date is considered the last day of the month of expiry.
Can PDI Germicidal Wipes and Sprays ship by air transportation?Show Answer
Most Sani-Cloth® brand products can be shipped via air transportation. However, Sani-24® and Sani-Prime sprays, as well as Sani-Cloth Prime wipes, Super Sani-Cloth wipes and Sani-Cloth Plus wipes cannot be shipped by air due to shipping regulations. These products are shipped via ground transportation only.
Does NFPA 30 apply to PDI disinfectants (Germicidal wipes and sprays)?Show Answer
NFPA 30 applies to the storage of flammable and combustible liquids. PDI products, including Sani-HyPerCide® wipes and spray, Sani-24® spray, Sani-Cloth® Prime wipes, Super Sani-Cloth wipes, and Sani-Cloth Plus cloth, as well as Easy Screen® Cleaning Wipe, are exempt from the requirements of NFPA 30. This is because the scope of NFPA 30 (Section 1.1) states that it applies to the storage, handling, and use of flammable and combustible liquids. Even though our products contain liquids that have been classified as flammable on the SDS, the wipes themselves are not classified as liquid products. Rather, they are wipes impregnated with flammable liquids, even though there may be a small amount of free liquid in the bottom of the canister. According to the EPA, wipes are classified as a mixture product containing solids and liquids. The NFPA has also confirmed that wipes are not considered to be liquid for the purposes of NFPA 30. In addition, NFPA Section 9.1.4(4) states that it does not apply to “medicines, foodstuffs, cosmetics and other consumer products that contain more than 50 percent by volume of water-miscible liquids, with the remainder of the solution not being flammable where packaged in individual containers that do not exceed 5L (1.3 gallons) capacity.” For the above reasons, NFPA 30 does not apply to PDI products. Please verify these storage requirements against your insurance carrier requirements since they may be more stringent than NFPA 30.

Are eye wash stations required for areas where Germicidal Disposable Wipes and Germicidal Sprays are utilized?Show Answer
Eye wash stations are not required for areas where Germicidal Disposable Wipes and Germicidal Sprays are utilized as intended for surface disinfection. Although these products are classified as eye irritants, there is no OSHA or ANSI regulation that requires an eye wash station for eye irritants and therefore one not needed for these products. Handling of any chemical product, whether category 1, 2, 3, or 4, include using PPE when required, engineering controls if appropriate, and safe work practice controls to minimize any risk of exposure
Can PDI Germicidal Wipes and Sprays be used on toys?Show Answer
PDI disinfectants are available in EPA-Registered formulations that are approved and labeled for use on hard, non-porous toys. The products clean and disinfect in a one-step process, unless visibly soiled. Once disinfected, toys should be rinsed with potable water (tap water) to remove any residue and allowed to air dry. According to the Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology (APIC), the recommended procedure for disinfecting toys is “Toys should be cleaned/disinfected between patients, especially those that are visibly soiled, mouthed, or used by patients in isolation. Toys should be washed thoroughly; disinfected with a non-toxic, low-level disinfectant, and air-dried completely.” Infection control experts recommend only washable toys for sharing. Stuffed animals and toys that cannot be cleaned and disinfected should not be shared.

Do PDI Germicidal Wipes and Sprays contain any ingredient listed as carcinogenic?Show Answer
PDI disinfectants DO NOT contain any ingredients listed as carcinogenic by the National Toxicology Program (NTP), American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists (ACGIH), and Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). This applies to ALL Sani-Cloth products, including Sani-24, Sani-HyPerCide, Sani-Cloth Prime, Sani-Prime, Super Sani-Cloth, Sani-Cloth AF3, Sani-Cloth Bleach, Sani-Cloth Plus, and Sani-Cloth HB brands. To register any disinfectant product with the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the manufacturer is required to provide the EPA with the product’s manufacturing process, active and inactive ingredients, efficacy, chemistry, toxicity, and information about relevant impurities. The EPA conducts a thorough review of these materials and product ingredients. The agency would not register any product if it contained carcinogens without requiring relevant label warnings (40 CFR 156.10(g)(7)). As such, Sani-Cloth Wipes and Sani-Prime Spray do not contain carcinogenic label warnings.
What personal protective equipment (PPE) is required when using ani-HyPerCide™ Germicidal Spray and Wipes?Show Answer
For all PDI products, according to the label instruction, the use of gloves or other PPE is not required to handle the product, particularly in non-clinical settings. Therefore, the routine use of PPE is not required unless potentially infectious blood or bodily fluids are present. If bloodborne pathogens are present, such as HIV, HBV, and HCV, follow label instructions. You should, however, wear PPE as appropriate in accordance with your facility protocol. Also, in compliance with good industrial and health hygiene, you should wear gloves when cleaning and disinfecting in a patient setting.
How can the CAD shield be removed from the surface if any noticeable buildup occurs?Show Answer
If the CAD shield needs to be removed, utilize a solvent/alcohol-based product (ex. Easy Screen Cleaning Wipe®, Super Sani-Cloth® Wipe). Once the surface is cleaned using a solvent or alcohol-based product, the Sani-24 Wipe must be reapplied to achieve CAD.
How does the Continuously Active Disinfection (CAD) technology work?Show Answer
Once the 1-minute contact time for immediate disinfection has been achieved, the antimicrobial shield (aka CAD) is active and will last for up to 24 hours or 96 touches against ESKAPE pathogens. Within those 24 hours or 96 touches, if the surface is re-contaminated, the antimicrobial shield will kill the ESKAPE pathogens within 5 minutes.
Is the CAD technology/antimicrobial protective shield noticeable once applied?Show Answer
When used as directed, the Sani-24 Wipe’s CAD/protective shield provides protection against ESKAPE pathogens for up to 24 hours – even after multiple touches. Once dried, the visibility of the protective shield varies depending on surfaces/materials, humidity, user technique, etc.
What enables the Continuously Active Disinfection (CAD) Technology?Show Answer
The Sani-24 Wipe is an innovative, novel quat/alcohol formulation that includes an inactive proprietary polymer that binds the active quat to the surface, providing around-the-clock protection, even after multiple touches.
What if the CAD shield is wiped from the surface?Show Answer
If the surface with CAD shield is wiped with a solvent/alcohol-based product, the Sani-24 Wipe must be reapplied to achieve CAD.
Would CAD technology be effective at 5-minute contact time for the microorganisms with contact times of 5 minutes such as Norovirus?Show Answer
No, CAD technology is only listed as effective against ESKAPE pathogens per EPA master label.
Do the PDI Sani-Cloth® products kill the Omicron variant of SARS-CoV-2?Show Answer
The EPA guidance states: “EPA expects all products on List N to kill all strains of SARS-CoV-2. Genetic changes to the virus do not impact the efficacy of disinfectants. List N disinfectants work by chemically inactivating viruses. The difficulty of killing a virus depends on its physical features, and the recent mutations to SARS-CoV-2 have not changed the basic physical properties.”
The PDI Sani-Cloth products that are on List N and have a specific claim for SARS-CoV-2 are:
- Super Sani-Cloth Germicidal Wipes (EPA reg #9480-4)
- Sani-Cloth Bleach Germicidal Wipes (EPA reg #9480-8)
