What respirator is needed for ProKure V?

For disinfection jobs, ProKure V is used at 100 ppm, this does not require any PPE. Exposure may aggravate pre-existing eye, skin, or respiratory conditions. Under normal conditions of use, when fully reacted and in solution, the solution is not considered hazardous. Please see section 2 of SDS for this information. https://content.prokuresolutions.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/ProKure-V-Ready-to-Use-Solution-SDS.pdf

 

Regarding heavy odor applications for restoration contractors, ProKure V liquid is made at 500 PPM and this does require a full-face respirator with organic acid gas cartridges.

 

For example: 3M 6000 Series Full Facepiece Respirator with 3M 60923 Organic Vapor –Acid Gas Cartridge/Filter, P100.

Why can’t I find ProKure V on the EPS’s List N?

The EPA has published FAQs about disinfectants for use against SARS-CoV-2.The link to the FAQ page is: EPA SARS-COV-2 FAQ LIST

 

A common question is: I can’t tell if the product I’m interested in is on the list or not. Can you help me?

 

FAQ Answer: When purchasing a product, check if its EPA registration number is included on this list. If it is, you have a match and the product can be used against SARS-CoV-2. You can find this on the product label – just look for the EPA Reg. No. These products may be marketed and sold under different brand names, but if they have the same EPA registration number, they are the same product.

 

The primary products included on our list may have more recognizable brand names, but there are often “distributor products” that are identical to them.

 

Although distributor products frequently use different brand names, you can identify them by their three-part EPA Reg. No. The first two parts of the EPA Reg. No. match the primary product. A third set of numbers represents the Distributor ID number. For example, EPA Reg. No. 12345-12-2567 is a distributor product with an identical formulation and efficacy to the primary product with the EPA Reg. No. 12345-12. If EPA Reg. No. 12345-12 is on our list, you can buy EPA Reg. No. 12345-12-2567 and be confident you’re getting the same thing.

 

For ProKure V, our ‘primary’ product (‘Performacide’) is on List N: Products with Emerging Viral Pathogens AND Human Coronavirus claims for use against SARS-CoV-2 (table below).Performacide’s EPA Reg. No. is 87508-3 and ProKure V’s EPA Reg. No. is 87508-3-89334.These products share the “the first two parts of the EPA Reg. No.”, which is how you can be confident of identical formulation, efficacy and that ProKure V’s meets the EPA’s criteria for use against SARS-CoV-2, the cause of COVID-19.​

 

Can you fog ProKure V?

ProKure V should be sprayed, mopped or sponged to disinfect all hard, non-porous surfaces. Full product label can be found here: https://content.prokuresolutions.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/EPA-Label-_ProKure-V-2.pdf.

 

Applying ProKure V by fogging is not currently on the product label.  Concerns about fogging include not providing enough dwell time for products to disinfect.

 

What is the shelf life of ProKure in the packets?

ProKure foil packets have a 2-year warranty and will work past that as long as the foil packet is not breached.

 

Is ProKure V Organic or can you use it on food contact surfaces?

ProKure V has received the coveted NSF International Certificate within the (D2) Category: a sanitizer on all surfaces not always requiring a rinse.  Our NSF Certificate can be viewed here: https://content.prokuresolutions.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/08/Certificate-C0555132.pdf

 

ProKure V Liquid is OMRI Listed (Organic Materials Review Institute), which allows ProKure V to be used in organic production or food processing and handling according to the USDA National Organic Program Regulations. I have attached a copy of our OMRI listing here: https://content.prokuresolutions.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/02/pks-7136-cert.pdf

 

OMRI supports organic integrity by developing clear information and guidance about materials, so that producers know which products are appropriate for organic operations. OMRI is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides an independent review of products, such as fertilizers, pest controls, livestock health care products, and numerous other inputs that are intended for use in certified organic production and processing. When companies apply, OMRI reviews their products against the organic standards. Acceptable products are OMRI Listed® and appear on the OMRI Products Lists©. OMRI also provides technical support and training for professionals in the organic industry.

 

The NSF Certificate combined with ProKure V’s existing OMRI (Organic Materials Review Institute) registration provides a clear statement of safety and effectiveness from two of the most trusted food safety & processing certificate organizations in the world.

 

Additionally, ProKure is a no wipe, no rinse, no residue product. You can view our ProKure V Kill claims, site call outs and more here: https://content.prokuresolutions.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/EPA-Label-_ProKure-V-3.pdf

How long does ProKure V protect the surface after being applied?

ProKure V does not make any claims on disinfecting a surface for prolonged periods of time after it has been contaminated. ProKure V should be re-applied if there has been a chance for re-contamination.

 

Does ProKure V leave a residue behind?

The ProKure V liquid is a No Wipe, No Rinse, No Residue product. ProKure V contains no phosphates, no carcinogens or poisonous residuals, does not chlorinate & naturally dissipates.

 

Does ProKure V burn skin?

Regarding ProKure V liquid, Exposure may aggravate pre-existing eye, skin, or respiratory conditions. Under normal conditions of use, when fully reacted and in solution, the solution is not considered hazardous. Please see Section 2 of the ProKure V Ready to Use Solution SDS, located here: https://content.prokuresolutions.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/ProKure-V-Ready-to-Use-Solution-SDS.pdf

 

Does ProKure V damage fabrics?

ProKure V is approved to deodorize colorfast carpet, carpet cushions, and other soft surface materials (See EPA Label). https://content.prokuresolutions.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/EPA-Label-_ProKure-V-3.pdf

 

Always test ProKure V in a hidden area to ensure colorfastness before application.

 

Can I use an electrostatic sprayer to apply ProKure V?

Electrostatic sprayers have been previously defined as an electric sprayer. Recently, there has been increased interest in the application of antimicrobial disinfectants on List N via electrostatic spray given the need to disinfect large indoor spaces to reduce the risk of exposure to the virus that causes COVID-19. Electrostatic sprayers work by charging the antimicrobial liquid as it passes through a nozzle. The positively charged antimicrobial droplets are attracted to negatively charged environmental surfaces allowing for improved coverage on hard, non-porous environmental surfaces. (Source: https://www.epa.gov/pesticide-registration/expedited-review-adding-electrostatic-spray-application-directions-use).

 

EPA’s new guidance covers requests to add electrostatic spraying directions to both new and currently registered disinfectant products—including those on EPA’s List N: Disinfectants for Use Against SARS-CoV-2—that require review under Pesticide Registration Improvement Act (PRIA). A disinfectant product’s safety and effectiveness may change based on how it is used. If a product’s label does not include disinfection directions for electrostatic spraying, EPA has not reviewed any data on whether the product is safe and effective when used by this method. (Source: https://www.epa.gov/newsreleases/epa-takes-action-help-americans-disinfect-indoor-spaces-efficiently-and-effectively)

 

This new guidance requires ProKure V to list specific types of electrostatic sprayers listed on the EPA label. Currently, we do not have any approved electrostatic sprayers on our EPA label. However, we have started the testing process and will amend our label in accordance when approved.

 

ProKure V should be sprayed, mopped or sponged to disinfect all hard, non-porous surfaces. Full product label can be found here – https://content.prokuresolutions.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/EPA-Label-_ProKure-V-2.pdf.

Applying ProKure V by electrostatic applications is not currently on the product label.

 

Currently, there are only three (3) disinfectants approved for application using electrostatic sprayer. All three are part of the Clorox family utilizing Clorox specific electrostatic sprayers.

 

Is PPE required when using ProKure V at the disinfection concentration through a pressurized sprayer?

In general, ProKure V is not considered hazardous when applying via mop, sprayer or sponge at the disinfection concentration (100 ppm Chlorine dioxide – “ClO2”) in a well-ventilated area. Certain sprayers, such as a fogger or an airless paint sprayer may produce very small droplet sizes.  A NIOSH/MHSA-approved respirator and goggles for chlorine dioxide are recommended when using these types of sprayers. If working with stock (500 ppm ClO2) solution in open container or pressurized sprayer, wear NIOSH/MHSA-approved respirator and goggles for chlorine dioxide; Wear protective gloves if hands will come into contact with activated solution during dilution or application.

 

Can ProKure G be used in ventilation systems or HVAC?

Yes, if applicable, turn on air conditioning or ventilation system to circulate air if the system is solely for the space being treated. If not, turn off and close ducts. (Turn off lights.) Please see the ProKure EPA label for full instructions. You can view it here: https://content.prokuresolutions.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/06/EPA-Label-_ProKure-G-1-2.pdf

How do I figure out how much ProKure I need for a job?

ProKure V: Generally, 1 gallon of ProKure V liquid will cover 1,000 – 2,000 square feet on most disinfection jobs. For odor applications, a heavier liquid treatment is recommended using 500 sqft – 1000 sq ft per gal.

 

ProKure G: Use 1 packet per 2250 cubic feet for standard odor or 1000 cubic feet for heavy odors. No people or pets in the space while being treated, make sure to fully read ProKure G EPA label before use.

 

Can people be in the space during a ProKure G treatment? 

People and pets must not be in the area undergoing treatment while product is activated. Use the enclosed caution placard to record treatment/safe re-entry time. Please be sure to read the entire ProKure G label before use.

 

Does furniture need to be removed before the ProKure G gas treatment? 

No, just ensure that the product (gas pouch/clamshell or cup) is placed no closer than 18″ to 24″ away from fabrics, leather, electronics, mirrors, metals or plated surfaces. It is best to use a fan or air mover to increase circulation and distribute gas.

 

Where should the gas units be placed?

ProKure G gas should be kept off the ground, as the gas is heavier than air. The clamshell or cup can be placed on countertops, tables, anything to help lift the gas to the highest point possible in the room. It is best to use a fan or air mover to increase circulation and distribute gas.

 

Does art need to be removed before the ProKure G gas treatment?

In general, it is best to remove or completely cover with plastic barrier any art in the treatment area.
