COVID-19 causing virus can survive 28 days on surfaces says the CSIRO..
When Covid-19 first found it's way to Australian shores, we knew very little about the way this virus behaves and interacts with surfaces. Early studies were conflicting and it was too early for peer-reviewed studies to find conclusions.
Latest research from the CSIRO, ‘Covid-19 causing virus can survive 28 days on surfaces’ indicates that SARS- CoV-2 can last up to 28 days on some surfaces.
So how do you mitigate surface transmission risks?
SIQURA™ Hospital Grade Surface Disinfectant & Protectant destroys bacteria and locks onto surfaces to provide 24hrs of active defence on high touch surfaces and up to 30 days protection on low touch areas. It kills 99.999% of bacteria and is effective against viruses* including COVID-19.
Most disinfectant products evaporate within a short period of time, leaving surfaces vulnerable to recontamination. SIQURA™ 75HG is a three-in-one solution. It cleans, disinfects and then remains bonded to create a self-sanitising surface that continues to defend against bacterial attack.

LISTED ON THE ARTG
SIQURA™ 75HG Hospital Grade Surface Disinfectant & Protectant is listed on the Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods (ARTG) as an effective hard surface disinfectant that forms a protective polymer to provide residual bacteriostatic efficacy on high touch surfaces for up to 24 hours and low touch surfaces for up to 30 days.
SIQURA™ 75HG has been tested according to the following methods EN1276, EN13697, EN13624, ASTM 1053, EN 14476, AOAC 991.47, AOAC 991.48 , AOAC 991.49 and ASTM E2149 and is effective against a broad range of bacteria and *viruses such as Human Coronavirus E229 (including COVID-19), Murine Hepatitis Virus (MHV), Staphylococcus aureus, Enterococcus hirer, Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Salmonella choleraesuis.
The SIQURA™ active is US EPA listed.
BONDS TO SURFACES
SIQURA™ hospital grade surface disinfectant is applied wet onto clean dry surfaces. As it dries, it forms an organo-silane matrix of electrostatically charged spikes that bond to a diverse range of surfaces and substrates. Unlike all non-bound disinfectants, SIQURA does not leach from (or leave) the treated surface, it does not deplete in microbial efficacy, create a field of inhibition or promote microbial resistance.
FRIENDLY FOR THE PEOPLE AND THE ENVIRONMENT
Rather than poisoning microbes, SIQURA™ 75HG uses a small electrostatic charge to kill microorganisms, making it suitable for use in healthcare, childcare, education, commercial and domestic environments. It can be used on a wide range of surfaces and high touch areas including counters, door handles, bathrooms, floors, furniture and seating. Rapidly degrading, SIQURA™ 75HG breaks down to form simple organic compounds — reducing the potential for negative environmental impacts.
· No chlorines
· No bleaches
· No carcinogenic compounds
NON STOP PROTECTION
Through a biomechanical process, the electrostatic charge interacts with the bacteria lipid layer, resulting in permanent destruction of the bacterial cell. Because the organo-silane isn’t consumed in the disinfection process, it remains ready to continually defend treated surfaces against contamination and biofilm formation.
