Definitions:

Antiseptic - Chemical compounds which are capable of reducing the number of organisms on body surfaces.

Common Respirator Disinfectants - OSHA Requires employers to provide each respirator wearer with a respirator that is clean, sanitary, and in good working order. Disinfecting methods must ensure that the respirator is properly cleaned and disinfected in a manner that prevents damage to the respirator and does not cause harm to the user.

Contact Time - The length of time a face mask is required to be exposed to a sanitizing or disinfecting agent before wiping or rinsing to ensure the effectiveness of the products’ kill claims. Contact time for sanitizing recommended by ANSI Z88.2-1992 - Two minutes. (Check the Product label for contact times, Usually 10 minutes for disinfecting.)

Detergent - A washing agent formulated to aid in the removal of industrial debris from face mask surfaces prior to or during the disinfecting process. Germicidal Detergents - Products that possess good detergency as well as germ killing abilities.

Dilution Ratio - The amount of concentrated liquid product that must be added to one or more gallons of water. Hospital-Grade - A classification for disinfectants. These disinfectants must, at a minimum, kill Staphylococcus aureus, Salmonella, and Pseudomonas.
Disinfectant - Kills at least all named microbes on the product label - usually benchmark organisms selected for their difficulty to kill. This process is the most widely used and is required by OSHA 1910.134.

Dwell Time - The length of time a face mask is required to be exposed to a sanitizing or disinfecting agent before wiping or rinsing to ensure the effectiveness of the products’ kill claims. Contact time for sanitizing recommended by ANSI Z88.2-1992 - Two minutes. (Check the Product label for contact times, Usually 10 minutes for disinfecting.)

E.P.A. - Environmental Protection Agency. The Government Agency responsible for approving and regulating manufacturers who make label claims for their products’ germicidal strength.

Halogens - The most common halogen is bleach. Halogens are powerful disinfectants, but are usually much too strong and corrosive for most cleaning situations. Other drawbacks include a relatively short shelf-life and an inability to clean soiled respirators must be pre-cleaned before using chlorine disinfectants.

Idophors - Iodine solutions have short shelf lives and can stain face masks. The staining aspect and bad odor limit the use of this class of product in the respirator hygiene field.
Quaternary-ammonium compounds "Quats" - Quats are typically chlorine or bromine salts of ammonia in which the hydrogen’s are substituted with n-alkyl, benzyl, methyl or ethyl groups. Quats are cationic wetting agents with bactericidal activity and are active over a wide pH range. This class of disinfectant is widely used in respirator hygiene due to its non-corrosive nature, cleaning ability, and selectivity.

Respirator Hygiene - A system of principles and practices implemented for the maintenance, handling, disinfecting, and storage of respiratory equipment for the preservation of health and prevention of transmission of communicable diseases.

Sanitizer - Reduces the number of specified organisms to an E.P.A. certified safe level. These products are most often used in kitchen and food processing areas, where toxicity must be limited due to contact with food preparation surfaces. Sanitizing is recommended by ANSI-Z.88- 1992

Sterilize - A process or product which kills all microbes leaving a sterile environment. Most common method is with high heat or strong chemicals. These processes would deteriorate or destroy the materials used in face mask construction.

Tuberculocide - A product or process which kills the bacteria which causes tuberculosis. This bacteria is difficult to kill and requires strong disinfecting agents which are typically harmful to face mask surfaces. Surface disinfectants alone do not prevent the possibility of transmission of this bacteria, because TB is not transmitted by surface contact. TB is spread by nuclei in the air.
