Breaking News Item – Covid-19 Sanitizer sprayers!

In addition to direct human-to-human transmission, contaminated surfaces also pose a risk of transmitting viruses and pathogens. Especially in the current COVID-19 pandemic, this is of great importance: Studies show that SARS-CoV-2 viruses can survive for several days on surfaces that we come into daily contact with.

The WAGNER Group is a global expert in surface coatings. Our mission: We bring colour, protection and function to surfaces.

This makes us the ideal partner when it comes to disinfecting surfaces. With our mobile spraying units, the most common disinfectants can be applied to surfaces quickly, easily and even over large areas. In this way we support people through our innovation and contribute to an eff ective reduction of the spread of viruses.

Where can spray disinfection be used?

Particular attention must be paid to areas in daily use, as well as to areas frequented by people who are or were already ill.

  • Locker Rooms, Bathrooms, (Sanitary facilities)
  • Office Spaces
  • Restaurants and food preparation areas
  • Education facilities
  • Public transport
  • Public amenities, entryways and public spacese

What can be disinfected?

  • Disinfectants in liquid form, which are at least limited virucidal, are suitable for application to surfaces by spraying.
  • Disinfectant types: Based on alcohol, aldehydes, biguanides, bisphenols, diamidines, peroxygens, phenolics, quaternary ammonium salts and halogen-releasing compounds.
