Creating A Sustainable Legacy For Future Generations

A Game Changer For The Disinfectant Industry

Traditional disinfectants may be powerful, but they are often toxic.

Protectus Viridis™ and Protectus Ultimate™ are a more effective alternative to the harmful traditional, chemical-based disinfectants – without sacrificing the environment.

With our unique Residual Barrier Technology and natural, water-based formulation, Protectus Viridis™ represents a new generation of biodegradable disinfection technology that is as effective as traditional disinfectants.

RBT Ireland

Based in the Republic of Ireland, RBT Ireland is the exclusive licensed manufacturer and distributor of the Protectus Viridis™ and Protectus Ultimate™ product range developed by UK-based Residual Barrier Technology Ltd – RBT Global.

We hope to provide an effective and more sustainable disinfectant and sanitising solutions compared to other traditional products by utilising the unique formulation of Ultimate and the patented formulation of Viridis™. We also aim to disrupt the disinfectant industry by driving greater awareness and acceptance of sustainable and friendlier disinfectant technology.

Part of our goal to change the current disinfectant industry is to educate our users on the chemicals we use, why we use these particular chemicals and to identify possible toxic, harsh and dangerous chemicals.
On the other hand we hope to promote self-awareness, environmental awareness and good hygiene awareness. A major current concern in the disinfectant industry is using harsh, toxic and dangerous chemicals to forcefully disrupt pathogens which results in either “super-bugs” as the pathogen became resistant to the chemicals or severely and in some cases cause irreversible environmental damages. This is not to mention the long term health issues that other harsh disinfectant products cause to users, especially the users who on a daily bases are in direct contact with such products.

The Need For Safe Alternatives
To Counter The Threat Of Pathogens

Across the globe, hygiene and sanitation has become more important than ever. Humans are increasingly exposed to harmful pathogens. This is a driving demand for greater protection against contamination, more effective but less harmful products and an economically sustainable disinfectant.

Traditional, legacy disinfectants are loaded with harsh chemicals such as alcohols, hydrogen peroxide, phenolic compounds. While these chemicals can combat pathogens, they also pose a threat to humans, animals, plants and the environment.

For instance, alcohol is flammable, hydrogen peroxide can cause corrosion, phenolic compounds can irritate skin and can cause long-term health issues such as cancer. When these chemicals enter the environment – air, water and soil – they accumulate (non-biodegradable) and can threaten waterways and wildlife.

While disinfectants and sanitisers are needed for public health, there needs to be less dangerous alternatives that are kinder to the environment and human health and safety. This is the responsibility of the current generation for future generations.

Finding The Right Balance Between Safety And Efficacy

With their combination of synergistic biodegradable ingredients that can effectively kill microbes, as well as provide longer-lasting residual efficacy thanks to their unique Residual Barrier Technology, Protectus Viridis™ and Protectus Ultimate™ can help to control the spread of diseases.
