Clorox Healthcare Introduces Next Generation of Bleach

Clorox Healthcare has announced the introduction of Clorox Healthcare Fuzion Cleaner Disinfectant.

Fuzion combines bleach efficacy against tough-to-kill pathogens with the aesthetics required for broad use throughout health care facilities. Fuzion is Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) registered to kill Clostridium difficile (C. difficile) spores in two minutes and 35 other pathogens in one minute.

“At Clorox Healthcare, we are constantly looking for ways to expand the breadth and depth of our industry-leading bleach portfolio to meet the needs of health care facilities and equip end users with the tools they need to safeguard patient environments,” says Lynda Lurie, Director – Marketing, Clorox Healthcare. “Health care facilities need the right disinfectants to help keep patients safe from infection-causing pathogens. With Fuzion, they no longer need to make tradeoffs between efficacy, odor and surface compatibility.”

“Fuzion uses innovative new technology to improve surface compatibility and reduce residue,” says Hedi Modaressi, Department Manager – R&D, Clorox Healthcare. “The solution contains sodium hypochlorite and a neutralizer which, when combined, form a pH-neutral hypochlorous acid – a highly effective form of bleach. Once the two-minute contact time is reached, the neutralizer breaks down the bleach solution into a very small amount of sodium chloride and water with minimal residue, eliminating the need for a rinsing step.”

This approach makes Fuzion tough on pathogens, yet easy on surfaces and practical for everyday use across a wide variety of health care surfaces and settings. These features, combined with the ease of use of a one-step cleaner and disinfectant represent the next generation of disinfectants and an entirely new user experience designed for efficacy and satisfaction.
