Crystal Clean HOCl All - Purpose Disinfectant

Crystal Clean HOCl is the industry’s first 99 % bioactive water soluble granular HOCl (Hypochlorous Acid) hard surface sanitizer and disinfectant. Crystal Clean HOCl is delivered in a dry form and added conveniently in prepackaged amounts for easy adding into various containers sizes with water. Crystal Clean HOCl is EPA Registration “N” listing approved. It has been developed to kill viruses bacteria,mold, fungi, and other harmful pathogens like various liquid counterparts for HOCl produced from a very expensive generator, but with a much more stable, stronger solution. By adding Crystal Clean HOCl to water, the user can create the strongest form of HOCl on the market today.

All disinfectants that are registered with the EPA have three important EPA approvals attached to
them. 1- What pathogen can the product kill,
2- How strong the active ingredient needs to be to
kill the pathogen, and 3- How long does the
product need to sit on the pathogens to efficiently
kill it. Crystal Clean HOCl is designed, packaged,
and registered in such a way to help the individual
using the Crystal Clean HOCl product eliminate the
pathogen they are most concerned about in the
most efficient, and cost effective method
possible. The person using Crystal Clean HOCl can
mix a very strong solution to kill the most harmful
pathogens found in a Hospital setting or mix a very
mild solution to use in a residential setting. With this
very new system we all can make sure we
eliminate the pathogens we desire in the safest
most efficient way possible.

Based on concentration, Crystal Clean HOCl will rapidly kill contaminants on any surface within minutes without leaving dangerous or hazardous residue behind. As surfaces are exposed to additional contaminants (rate of contamination varies depending on the specific environment), Crystal Clean HOCl does not leave harmful residues behind to provide residual kill over a long period of time. It is designed to kill what exists on the surface when applied and leave a clean, pathogen free, safe surface for human and food contact. Products designed for residual kill or for barrier coating should be used with caution to ensure people or food touching surfaces will not become contaminated with residual chemistry that could seriously harm people, pets, or environment.

Depending on your environment, you can apply
Crystal Clean HOCl for sanitization/disinfection as
much as needed. Because Crystal Clean HOCl is
efficiently applied and both eco and human safe,
for hotspot areas that involve many human touch
points in a given day (school rooms, conference
rooms, cafeterias, common rooms, transportation
vessels and facilities, etc.), we recommend multiple
treatments per day as needed.

Crystal Clean HOCl with HOCl has always been safe
to spray in working environments, agriculture, and
husbandry applications such as those around
people, animals, and food. It has been safe for the
environment, as well as the applicator to use a
variety of application equipment such as
atomizers, sprayers, and foggers. Crystal Clean
HOCl is safe to spray and apply in the aqueous form without personal protective equipment (PPE) when
used in recommended concentrations.

At recommended strengths and according to
OSHA and GHS testing, Crystal Clean HOCl is not
harmful to eyes or skin. It is always important to use
products as directed. Crystal Clean HOCl can
cause minor skin an eye irritation to people with
certain sensitivities.

No adverse effects are expected in humans or pets
if Crystal Clean HOCl is accidently sprayed in eyes
from a spraying operation. If irritation occurs, rinse
the eyes with water for several minutes. The
product should never be intentionally sprayed on
skin or eyes.

Most known chlorine reactions are from sodium
hypochlorite which is the chemical compound
found in bleach. HOCl does not contain sodium
hypochlorite. HOCl is found in the blood stream
which is produced by white blood cells. It is not
common to have allergic reactions from HOCl, but
if any reaction develops, it is best to wash any
exposed skin with clean tap water.

Yes, Crystal Clean HOCl will work with sprayers or
misters. Crystal Clean HOCl can be sprayed,
misted, or fogged via a host of commercially
available spraying, misting, diffusing, or fogging
devices.

Crystal Clean HOCl does not leave a residual. It is
not corrosive or destructive to most hard surfaces
at recommended concentrations and is safe to
apply without subsequent wiping effort. However, if
users prefer to wipe off Crystal Clean HOCl after
application, be sure to let it sit for recommended
4-10 minutes(based on concentration and
bacterial or virus kill claims) before wiping to
ensure a complete kill of the contaminants on the surface. It is also important to know the surfaces
you are treating. It is a common practice to treat a
small area of any surface to first verify there will not
be an adverse reaction to the treatment.

All disinfectants that are registered with the EPA
have three important EPA approvals attached to
them:

• What pathogen(s) the product can kill.

• What concentration the active ingredient needs
to be to kill a specified pathogen.

• What is the “kill time” required for any
specific pathogen.

Crystal Clean HOCl is designed, packaged, and
registered in such a way to help the individual
using the Crystal Clean product eliminate the
pathogen they are most concerned about in the
most efficient, and cost-effective method possible.
Various concentrations are used depending on the exact pathogen(s) of interest.

• Cleaning removes dust, debris, and dirt from a
surface by scrubbing, washing, and rinsing.

• Sanitizing reduces the bacteria identified on the
product’s label on surfaces and in laundry.

• Disinfecting destroys or inactivates both the
bacteria and viruses identified on the product’s
label (like influenza and rhinovirus) on hard,
nonporous surfaces.

It is important to read each label to truly
understand the product claims as recognized by
the EPA.

The N-List became important to most consumers
and medical facilities after the outbreak of
COVID-19 in 2020. The CDC recognized several
active ingredients, products, and manufactures
that produced a Sanitizing and Disinfecting
product that passed specific requirements. It is
also important to understand the being on the
N-List did not make the product a cure all to any
disinfecting need. Crystal Clean HOCl in now on the
“N” list.

Every product that is registered with the EPA and
tested against specific pathogens will have a
specific kill claim. This kill claim will tell you the
strength of product you need to kill a specific
pathogen and how long the solution needs to sit
wet on the pathogen to complete kill it.
As an example, Crystal Clean HOCl at 600 ppm
when mixed with tap water is strong enough to kill
a variety of bacteria tested at 10 minutes. When the
Crystal Clean HOCl is mixed with tap water to 2400
ppm it can kill the harshest Viruses in 4 minutes.
Crystal Clean HOCl can be used to sanitize food
surfaces in any kitchen residential, and
commercial without a rinse at 100 ppm. So, to
decide what strength of solution you need is based
upon what you are trying to kill and the time you
want to kill it in. The stronger the solution the more
you can kill in a shorter time, but with a few more
precautions. The weaker the solution the longer
you will need the product to sit on the pathogen to
eliminate it but with much less precautions. To
help illustrate we have provided a mix chart as
shown on the Crystal Clean HOCl label.

Products are tested in EPA Certified Labs to
determine efficacy (kill rate and residence time)
on any specified pathogen. Some pathogen tests
automatically qualify the product for “lesser
pathogens” when using the same concentration
and kill time. Each claim needs to be added to the
label in order to market the strength and kill claim
registered by the EPA. ECO ridge has conducted a
new set of testing to provide our customers with
more choices in terms of pathogens and
concentrations. Even though test results show the
1,200 ppm solution to kill a variety of bacteria and
viruses in a very timely kill rate, these claims
cannot be listed on the Crystal Clean HOCl label
until the test results have been excepted by the
EPA and added to the new label addendum.
The goal is to have a mix chart from .5-1.5ppm to
treat public water, 100-200 ppm for food surfaces,
600 ppm for bacteria disinfection, 1200 to 2400
ppm for virus disinfection , all the way up to 5000
ppm for the harder pathogens to kill such as C-DIFF
and tuberculosis in under 4 minutes in a Hospital
setting.

Crystal Clean HOCl, after combined with water will
degrade in strength over time and should be used
within 30 days from the date of mixing to ensure
the highest performance. When applied properly,
users will likely notice a slight “clean” smell during
application.

It is recommended to test fabrics to determine the
risk of level of bleaching. Crystal Clean HOCl is
intended for hard surface treatment. Soft surfaces
carry no official sanitization or disinfection claims. It
is important to avoid leaving any surface
saturated for an extended period of time beyond
10- minutes as stated on the label. It is important to
know that even water will hurt a surface if left for a
long time on surfaces.

Crystal Clean is an oxidizer that uses FAC (Free
Available Chlorine) to eliminate surface pathogens
and undesirable bacteria, and viruses. When
Crystal Clean HOCl is sprayed on surfaces, it will
temporarily leave a slight smell of chlorine on the
surface and in the air until the surface is completely
dry, at which point the smell will dissipate and leave
a fresh spell.

Yes. Crystal Clean HOCl delivers a faster speed of
kill, leaves no residue, and requires no
post- application wiping for most applications.
Speed and ease of treatment is a significant
advantage and requires minimal personal
protection equipment (PPE) to apply in the
aqueous form. Spray Crystal Clean HOCl and walk
away without rinsing on most applications. You will
achieve greater sanitation with less chemistry
using Crystal Clean HOCl with lower safety, skin,
and eye irritation risk. Crystal Clean HOCl can also
be fogged or misted with people present for
continuous disinfection. No carcinogen forming
THM or HAA compounds are created as a
by product of Crystal Clean HOCl disinfection.

Generally speaking, 1- gallon of Crystal Clean HOCl
in solution will provide thorough coverage for
approximately 4,000 square feet depending on the
variation of volume sprayed.

Crystal Clean HOCl reacts quickly against
microbes and provides complete kill within a few
minutes of contact time. For a more
comprehensive list of pathogens and kill times it is
important to read EPA labels and ask
manufacturers about any kill claims and
associated dwell times as these variables are
different from product to product.

Crystal Clean HOCl is certified as a spray-on,
leave-on food surface cleaner, and is approved for
use as a primary disinfectant in purification of
drinking water. Washing produce with the
appropriate strength of HOCl extends the shelf life
of the produce you have at home. As with sizes any
as with any FDA certified product, it is important to
follow the use instructions for strength and
application.

Crystal Clean HOCl has a 2- years shelf life from
the manufactured date in the dry granular form.
Once in solution, Crystal Clean HOCl should be
used within a 30- days period to ensure the size,
but standard products can normally be shipped
within 3- 5 business days. Special products or
container size may take longer.

Lead times can vary based on container size.
Normal sizes and volumes can typically be
shipped with 3- 5 business days. Special
orders/sizes may take additional time.

NO. Crystal Clean HOCl is not approved for internal
use.

Spray bottle samples are available upon request
for qualified applicants. Crystal Clean HOCl user
references can also be supplied upon request.

Yes, so long as it adheres to the approved EPA
label. Crystal Clean HOCl prepackaged volumes
are delivered so you can blend with water as
needed. Because of the shelf- life, once the solution
is blended with H2O it is important to offer the
premeasured pouches so customers can blend
solution as needed. It is always important to follow
all manufacturers suggestions, and guidelines for
storage, blending, application and treatments.

The solution is made available in different
container formats and is more cost- effective on a
per gallon basis.
