‘Reliable, long lasting protection that provides peace of mind‘

Protectus Ultimate™ is a water-based disinfectant that provides sustained efficacy for 24 hrs, using our residual barrier technology. Our product has been proven effective against a broad range of bacteria, yeasts and enveloped viruses.
What is in Protectus Ultimate™?
Ultimate™ is made up of three groups of carefully formulated ingredients and water.
Quats + PHMB + Surfactant + Water
Protectus Ultimate™ uses a scientifically selected blend of latest generation quats. This powerful combination provides highly effective activity against a broad spectrum of pathogens
Protectus Ultimate™ contains a polymer disinfectant that is used in a variety of pharmaceutical and cosmetic products. When combined with the quats it works synergistically, providing powerful antimicrobial efficacy.
Protectus Ultimate™ contains a non-ionic surfactant that aids micelle formation; this stabilises the mixture, providing the effective residual surface barrier.
Our unique formulation means Protectus Ultimate™ is dissolved in water, rather than harsh organic solvents, allowing it to be effectively applied.
How does Protectus Ultimate™ work?
24 hr Residual Efficacy
Protectus Ultimate™ provides sustained efficacy by forming a residual barrier on the surface once it is applied. As Ultimate dries, the active ingredients form micelles (microscopic bubbles) on the surface (see picture below). When the surface is contaminated, these micelles rehydrate to kill the pathogens.
Below is an Atomic Force Microscopy image showing Protectus Ultimate™ micelles on a surface. For reference a typical bacterium is 2-10 μm long
Protectus Ultimate™ is proven to be 99.9999% effective against bacteria such as MRSA and E. coli.
It combats bacteria with a dual action mechanism; the quats break down the bacterial cell wall while the PHMB enters the cell and interrupts the process of cell multiplication, causing cell death. While both have individual antibacterial efficacy, they complement each other making Protectus Ultimate™ stronger than the sum of its parts.
Protectus Ultimate™ is proven to be 99.999% effective against enveloped viruses such as Influenza H1N1 and SARS-CoV-2, and Norovirus.
The viral envelope is a phospholipid bilayer fatty membrane that plays a crucial role in the infection of host cells.
Protectus Ultimate™ destroys this envelope. Without it the virus is completely inactivated, and unable to infect or replicate.
Protectus Ultimate™ has been tested in independent accredited laboratories to a range of international standards and against various organisms as shown on our efficacy data and brochure.
