Isopropyl Alcohol

Isopropyl Alcohol 99% is pure isopropanol and Isopropyl Alcohol 70% is pure isopropanol diluted with 30% purified water by volume.

Isopropyl Alcohol 70%, or Isopropyl Alcohol 99% diluted to 70% with purified water, kills organisms by denaturing their proteins. A 70% isopropyl alcohol solution dissolves their lipids and is effective against most bacteria and fungi and many viruses, but is ineffective against bacterial spores.

Please read the MSDS for safe handling information.

Economical Concentrate or RTU:

Isopropyl Alcohol 99% is a pure alcohol product. Dilute to the desired strength with purified water. Isopropyl Alcohol 70% is generally ready-to-use at that strength.

Physical Data:

Clear, colourless liquid; isopropyl alcohol odour

Ethanol

Ethanol 95% contains 95% ethyl alcohol, 5% isopropyl alcohol (IPA) and 7 ppm Bitrex (denatonium benzoate). That is it!

Most ethyl alcohols contain petroleum additives, methanol or methanol-ethyl acetate blends, thus the true ethanol content may be less than 85%. These additives, called denaturants, are extremely toxic and render the ethanol blend as very toxic. Methanol, unlike IPA does not complement the disinfecting properties of ethanol. Absorption through the skin, inhalation or ingestion of this very toxic alcohol blend can cause mild to severe poisoning.

Ethanol 95% offers the same benefits as Isopropyl Alcohol 99%. Both are full strength pure alcohols and can be easily diluted with purified water to the effective disinfecting strength of 70%. Benefits over IPA include a more pleasant odour than the pungent odour of IPA. Ethyl Alcohol is also a slightly better virucide than IPA.

A 70% solution of Ethyl Alcohol 95% kills organisms by denaturing their proteins and dissolving their lipids and is effective against most bacteria, fungi and many viruses, but is ineffective against bacterial spores.

Please read the MSDS for safe handling information.

Ethyl Alcohol 95% is a pure alcohol product. Dilute to the desired strength with purified water.

Ethanol Dilution Guide

638 grams of Ethanol 95% plus 362 grams of Purified / Distilled Water equals 1000 grams of a 70% v/v solution

About 810 mL of Ethanol 95% plus 362 mL of Distilled Water equals about 1146 mL of a 70% v/v solution*
About 1000 mL of Ethanol 95% plus 450 mL of Distilled Water equals about 1415 mL of a 70% v/v solution*

*These values are approximate. Volumes may fluctuate due to temperature and the mixing process. For a more accurate solution, dilute by weight.
