What are the caution statements for this product:
Avoid contact with eyes.
Discontinue use if irritation develops, if irritation persists for more than 72 hours seek medical advice. Use on complex or invasive equipment is not advised. If using for prolonged periods wear gloves.

What is the Active Ingredients in Sterri-Matt:
The formulation is a clever blended antimicrobial solution developed by Sterri-Matt Pty Ltd. It contains various biocides including quaternary ammonium compounds and polymeric biguanide designed to work unison. This means that the effectiveness of the biocides is increased by many multiples when working in tandem together. This ensures a wide antimicrobial activity and a high kill count when
using Sterri-Matt. Sterri-Matt also contains an effective surfactant for use as a detergent.
This reduction in germs or kill count is expressed in a log form and in simple terms, the log number is the number of 9s that is expressed in a percentage reduction. For example, 2 log reduction is 99%, 4 log reduction is 99.99% and so on. Sterri-Matt under testing has consistently demonstrated a 5 log kill count (99.999%) of most germ groups in the contact time specified.
Why Foam is superior:
Sterri-Matt – VS – Wipes?
Testing and analysis has found that most common universal wipes are not suitable for specialised surfaces such as Health Mattresses, Comfort Chairs and similar equipment that uses two-way stretch vinyls. It is also believed that wipes are more cost-effective. However, when trialled against Sterri-Matt, it was found that Sterri-Matt was in fact far most cost-effective per bed than wipes and in most cases more than ten wipes were needed to clean and sanitise a bed correctly.
It has also been proven that some common ingredients in wipes damage two-way stretch material. In fact, many mattress suppliers now recommend that wipes not be used on these surfaces due to the damage caused to the fabric.

Sterri-Matt® Foaming Sanitiser FAQ’s
No. Sterri-Matt is a specialised foaming sanitiser developed to address the need for a suitable solution to the cleaning of healthcare style mattresses, comfort chairs and vinyl type surfaces & for effective bacteria control with faster drying times, for powerful neutralising and re-odourising, a diluted solution for easy and safe use to assist in extending the life of sensitive healthcare surfaces.
Sterri-Matt is economical and safe. It is applied in controlled beads and maintains shape until wiped, rather than the overuse of liquid sprays which may evaporate or run off during interruptions, losing effectiveness and causing re-application. In some cases liquids have been known to overspray or run to the floor creating a slip hazard. Generally wipes are used very wastefully, being held incorrectly and disposed of before complete optimisation, whilst the supply gradually air dries reducing the desired outcome.
150ml of foaming sanitiser is at a minimum, equivalent to 300ml of liquid spray. It is also more controlled and cost effective against solution.
To give an indication of area, Sterri-Matt should clean at least 18 – 22 mattresses used in normal conditions. This will vary depending on the style of application, surface types and severity of any soiled region.
After spreading and wiping away the foam, the sanitised surfaces are generally visually and touch dry within few seconds. Eliminating the need for extended air drying the surface.
Tested and proven effective on all common bacteria suspects found in healthcare environments. Not recommended for the control of highly infectious conditions and operating theatre use.
Yes. Sterri-Matt is registered by the manufacturer Sterri-Matt (ARTG no. 181388) and has an MSDS. It is also non-hazardous as defined by NOHSC Australia guidelines.
