Fuzion™: A low-residue, low-odour, surface-friendly innovation

There’s no denying the power of bleach to kill pathogens. However, its efficacy can become overshadowed by concerns users may have about odour, residue and surface damage.

But times have changed, and now, the future of bleach tells a different story.

All of the benefits, fewer drawbacks

When you combine the proven power of bleach with excellent aesthetics, you get a disinfection solution that’s ideal for broad use throughout your facility.

That’s the principle behind the development of Clorox Healthcare® Fuzion™ Cleaner Disinfectant. Fuzion™ merges efficacy with user-friendliness to enable you to get that bleach clean – without compromise – while easing concerns about odour and residue.

And the benefits don’t stop there.

  • Kills C. difficile in just 60 seconds
  • Kills 36 additional pathogens in 60 seconds – including TB & fungi
  • Low residue, low odour
  • Easy on surfaces
  • No protective equipment required

How Fuzion™ works

So how did this innovation come about? You may be surprised to know that it all started with the spray bottle.

Inside the Fuzion™ bottle are two separate chambers; one containing sodium hypochlorite (i.e. the bleaching agent), the other containing a neutralizer. When the two liquids mix upon spraying, hypochlorous acid is formed to kill pathogens quickly.1

The neutralizer then breaks down the bleach to leave only water and a small amount of salt on the surface. This innovative technology is what minimizes the potential odour, residue and surface damage.1

Use more often, in more places

With this advanced new formulation, you can count on the efficacy of this next-gen bleach for everyday use in more places than ever before, including:1

  • Emergency rooms (ER)
  • Patient & waiting rooms
  • Nurse stations
  • Public restrooms
  • IV/Dialysis
  • And more

That means you don’t have to reserve bleach strictly for occasional or intensive cleaning. You can use it on a daily basis to maximize disinfection at your facility – and that’s good news for everyone.

The truth about bleach concerns

If you have concerns about bleach, you’re not alone. But you might not know as much about this disinfectant as you may think.

The truth is that most user concerns about bleach are addressed by today’s formulations. Here’s why it’s time to rethink bleach:

  1. Better surface compatibility: Today’s bleach formats are engineered to be compatible with more surfaces and leave less residue behind.2
  2. Improved compliance: Ready-to-use formats like Clorox Healthcare® Fuzion™ Cleaner Disinfectant deliver the correct amount of bleach every time (versus dilutable formats whose use can be prone to human error).
  3. Less odour: The active ingredient in bleach has no actual odour and isn’t volatile. A scent may occur as it interacts with pathogens, but Clorox Healthcare® Fuzion™ Cleaner Disinfectant is a low-odour formulation.

Discover your disinfection solution

Whether you prefer to stick to Clorox Healthcare® bleach in its more traditional formats, or are interested in trying Fuzion™ for free, you’ve got plenty of great options.

It’s a new day in disinfection with Clorox Healthcare® Fuzion™ Cleaner Disinfectant.
