Frequently Asked Questions

What is the effectiveness duration of PhotoACTIVE Equine on treated surfaces?
The effectiveness duration of PhotoACTIVE Equine is designed to provide long-lasting protection for a variety of surfaces. For hard surfaces, such as horse stalls and the interiors of vehicles, the product offers an impressive one-year duration of effectiveness, ensuring that these areas remain protected against bacteria, viruses, and other pathogens for an extended period. On the other hand, for textiles, such as horse blankets, the effectiveness spans one season. This long-term efficacy significantly reduces the need for frequent reapplications, providing a practical and efficient solution for maintaining hygienic conditions in equine environments.
Are PhotoACTIVE Equine products safe for horses, humans, and the environment?
Yes, PhotoACTIVE Equine products are safe for horses, humans, and the environment. We hold all the necessary certifications to ensure the safety of our product. These certifications are a testament to our commitment to safety and efficacy, demonstrating that our products meet stringent standards for non-toxicity and environmental friendliness. Our formulation has been rigorously tested to ensure that it poses no harm to the health of horses or humans, and that it does not adversely affect the environment. This means that users can confidently apply PhotoACTIVE Equine products, knowing they are using a solution that is as safe as it is effective in maintaining hygienic conditions in equine environments.
How does PhotoACTIVE Equine fight against bacteria, viruses, and other pathogens?
PhotoACTIVE Equine effectively combats bacteria, viruses, and other pathogens not only through photocatalysis but also operates in the absence of light, thanks to the incorporation of silver ions. While photocatalysis is activated by light to produce reactive oxygen species for disinfecting surfaces, the silver ions provide an additional layer of antimicrobial protection that remains active even in dark conditions. This innovative technology utilizes light to activate a catalyst on the treated surfaces, which then produces reactive oxygen species (ROS). These ROS are highly effective in breaking down and neutralizing harmful microorganisms, including bacteria, viruses, and other pathogens, rendering them harmless. Photocatalysis is a powerful and safe method of disinfection, as it does not involve the use of harsh chemicals and leaves no toxic residues. Silver ions are known for their broad-spectrum antimicrobial properties, disrupting the cellular processes of microorganisms and preventing their reproduction. This dual-action approach ensures that PhotoACTIVE Equine products offer continuous, round-the-clock protection against pathogens, making them incredibly effective in maintaining hygienic conditions in equine environments, regardless of light availability.
On which surfaces can PhotoACTIVE Equine be applied (stables, equipment, transport vehicles, etc.)?
PhotoACTIVE Equine can be applied to a wide range of surfaces to ensure comprehensive protection against bacteria, viruses, and other pathogens. This includes various areas within stables, such as walls, floors, and stall dividers, providing a sanitized environment for the horses. Additionally, it is suitable for use on equipment like saddles, bridles, and grooming tools, effectively preventing the spread of pathogens through contact. Transport vehicles, including trailers and horseboxes, can also be treated with PhotoACTIVE Equine, ensuring that horses are protected during transit. The versatility of PhotoACTIVE Equine makes it an essential product for maintaining hygiene and safety in all areas associated with equine care and activities.
How long must one wait after application before the surface is considered disinfected?
After applying PhotoACTIVE Equine, the surface is considered disinfected as soon as the coating has dried, which allows for a quick and efficient disinfection process in most areas. However, for shower areas or zones with high moisture, it is recommended to allow a longer drying time of approximately 3 hours to ensure the disinfectant has fully adhered and activated on the surface. This distinction ensures that all treated areas, whether dry or wet, achieve optimal levels of disinfection. The quick drying time for most surfaces means that stables, equipment, and transport vehicles can be rapidly returned to use, minimizing downtime while maximizing protection against pathogens.
How to integrate PhotoACTIVE Equine into a regular maintenance program for equine facilities?
Integrating PhotoACTIVE Equine into a regular maintenance program for equine facilities involves a few straightforward steps to ensure continuous protection against pathogens while maintaining a clean and safe environment for horses. First, assess the specific needs of your facility to determine the most critical areas that require frequent disinfection, such as stables, equipment, and common areas. Incorporating PhotoACTIVE Equine into your routine cleaning schedules for these areas will enhance their cleanliness and safety. For optimal integration, apply PhotoACTIVE Equine after a thorough cleaning of surfaces to remove dirt, debris, and organic matter. This ensures that the photocatalytic and silver ion technologies in PhotoACTIVE Equine can effectively adhere to surfaces and provide a continuous antimicrobial barrier. Additionally, staff training is crucial for the successful integration of PhotoACTIVE Equine into maintenance routines. Ensure that all personnel are knowledgeable about the application process, safety measures, and the benefits of using PhotoACTIVE Equine. This will help maintain a consistently high standard of hygiene and disease prevention across the facility. Finally, monitor and evaluate the effectiveness of PhotoACTIVE Equine within your maintenance program regularly. Adjust application frequencies as necessary to address any changes in facility usage or pathogen exposure risks, ensuring that your equine facility remains a safe and healthy environment for both horses and humans.
Does PhotoACTIVE Equine damage surfaces?
No, PhotoACTIVE Equine does not damage surfaces; in fact, its application is designed to be completely non-invasive and leaves no visible residue. The product is formulated to provide effective antimicrobial protection without altering the appearance or integrity of the treated surfaces. Whether applied to hard surfaces such as stables, equipment, and transport vehicles, or textiles like horse blankets, PhotoACTIVE Equine acts invisibly, ensuring that there is no discoloration, degradation, or damage. Its invisible finish allows it to seamlessly integrate into any maintenance routine, providing peace of mind that while the surfaces are being protected against pathogens, their aesthetic and functional qualities remain unaffected. This makes PhotoACTIVE Equine an ideal solution for maintaining high standards of hygiene and safety in equine facilities without compromising on the look or condition of the surfaces.
How to clean equipped surfaces?
In practical terms, a sponge and water are enough! Soap will help remove greasy stains. As part of mandatory cleaning protocols, there is no need to change cleaning products. PhotoACTIVE has a low pH in suspension, and it withstands a pH of 15.
