ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Zep Inc., a leading innovator, producer and distributor of maintenance, cleaning and sanitation solutions for food & beverage, industrial & institutional, retail, and vehicle care customers has announced the U. S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) confirmed acceptance of three Zep cleaning and disinfecting products to protect against SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. The acceptance from the EPA was based on testing data demonstrating Zep Antibacterial Disinfectant & Cleaner with Lemon, Zep Spirit II Ready-To-Use Detergent Disinfectant and Zep All Purpose Bathroom Disinfectant Cleaner kills the virus that causes COVID-19* on hard non-porous surfaces in just 60 seconds!, half the time of other approved brands.
"We are proud to deliver a meaningful step in the ongoing fight against COVID-19 by providing our customers with products that deliver the fastest protection against SARS-CoV-2,” said Dan Smytka, Chief Executive Officer. "Our 80-year history of offering the highest quality of cleaning and disinfectant products guarantees our customers’ every cleaning need is covered both at home and at work."
Zep has worked with regulatory authorities to secure and commercialize a label against SARS-CoV-2 for these three products (listed under EPA Registration No. 1839-83), based on the primary registrant status. Additionally, seventeen other Zep disinfectants are already included on the EPA’s List N and contain an emerging virus pathogen claim for use against SARS-CoV-2.
“Zep has a long-standing track record of superior chemical innovation and rapid response to our customers’ ever-changing needs across many different sectors of life,” said Philp Thonhauser, Chief Technology Officer. “We are pleased to work with partners who enable us to continue this important work, especially in light of a global pandemic where health and safety of our customers is of utmost importance.”
Zep is a one-stop-shop option for efficacious cleaning and sanitizing solutions that prioritize the safety of the end user. The Zep Technical Services team is also available at AskTech@zep.com to help customers answer any questions about their specific needs for keeping safe during the pandemic and for reopening.
