The COVID-19 pandemic continues to have an unprecedented impact around the world and hygiene products are in short supply. R&D Coatings, LLC, an industrial coating manufacturer has retooled their manufacturing operations to produce surface and hand sanitizer to help slow the spread of the novel coronavirus.
The CDC recommends the use of alcohol-based hand sanitizers with greater than 60% ethanol or 70% isopropanol. This is when soap and water are not available. R&D Coatings is following the formulation guidelines distributed by the World Health Organization (WHO) using 75% isopropyl alcohol.
R&D’s team wanted to find a way to contribute as businesses start to open. “We’ve been diligent in finding the best and safest way to manufacture a quality hand sanitizer that could also clean surfaces,” said Michael Zupancic, President of R&D Coatings. “Our isopropyl alcohol antiseptic topical solution is a 75% high alcohol solution with glycerine, but it is not a gel. The design allows it to have the moisturizing properties of a gel, the disinfectant power of a surface cleaner. Additionally, you can spray it out of a bottle,” continued Zupancic.
The hand sanitizer is available in 5-gallon pails or 55-gallon drums. It is available for immediate shipping within the continental United States. For more information contact [email protected] or call 877.378.9860.
