U.S. EPA Certifies Spray Nine® To Kill Poliovirus Type I, Whooping Cough, Food Poisoning Germs In 45 seconds Or Less
- Proven against additional germs that pose serious threat to health -
Hartford, CT… Spray Nine, a leading brand of specialty cleaning products and innovator of the industry’s first “spray-on, wipe-off” cleaner disinfectant, today announced three new germ kill claims that have dramatically expanded the namesake Cleaner/Disinfectant’s overall germ coverage and fast sanitizing and disinfectant capabilities. The Spray Nine brand is produced and marketed by Permatex, a leading innovator in chemical technology for maintenance and repair.
In addition to its ability to kill an already long list of germs in rapid fashion, Spray Nine’s effective uses have expanded to include even more germs that can pose a serious health threat to the population.
EPA Certified Against Even More Germs
The EPA has claimed that Spray Nine (EPA Reg. No. 6659-3) safely kills Poliovirus Type I, a type of polio, in only 30 seconds, along with a broad spectrum of other viruses. It is also effective against Bordetella Pertussis, also known as whooping cough, and Listeria Monocytogenes, which is associated with food poisoning, killing both in just 45 seconds.

According to Cary Zelich, Market Manager, “With flu season just around the corner, Spray Nine can be a very effective first line of defense against flu viruses and other bacteria. Spray Nine is ideal for this type of application because it disinfects in only 45 seconds, while other disinfectants may require anywhere from 5 to 10 minutes of surface contact in order to be effective.”
Spray Nine is also an excellent, multi-purpose cleaner, which can be used in a wide variety of applications at home, workplace or around the shop. It easily tackles dirt, grease, and tough soils, and is very effective in controlling mold and mildew. Spray Nine features a water-based formula, which is safer to use and friendlier to the environment than solvent-based cleaners.
