Misting, Aerial Spraying, Cold and Thermal Fogging

To control organisms that can be introduced into a building during the setting up procedure & to disinfect inaccessible areas of
the building & the air, use either a fine mist sprayer or thermal fogging machine to apply Virkon™ S disinfectant solution evenly.

Aerial Disinfection Dilution Rate Application
Misting/Aerial Spray 1:200 Using either a pressure washer or knapsack
sprayer on its finest mist setting, apply at 1 litre
of Virkon™ S solution per 10m2 of floor space.
Cold Fogging 1:100 Use a mechanical mister to apply the Virkon™ S solution at a rate of 1 litre per 10m2 of floor space.
Thermal Fogging 1:25 (4%) solution of Virkon™ S in an 85:15
water Virkon™ S / Fog Enhancer mixture
Using a thermal fogging machine apply the
prepared solution at 1 litre per 40m2 of floor space.


Virkon™ S can be misted in the presence of livestock or poultry at a dilution rate of 1:200 (0.5%).

A cold fogger or mister should be used, as the noise of a thermal fogger may disturb the animal's behaviour.

Always read the Virkon™ S label carefully to ensure regulatory compliance.

The specified uses and registered claims for Virkon™ S may vary from country to country.
Please contact LANXESS directly to verify country-specific approved usages.
