LANXESS donates disinfectant to hospitals in Wuhan

  • Donation of 1 ton of Rely+On Virkon high level disinfectant, can be diluted into 100,000 litres of solution
  • Rely+On Virkon effective against coronavirus
 The coronavirus continues to cause new fatalities every day in China. To help fight the epidemic, specialty chemicals company LANXESS has donated one ton of its highly effective Rely+On Virkon disinfectant to hospitals in Wuhan and two surrounding cities. The high level powder disinfectant is diluted with water and in this quantity is sufficient for 100,000 litres of disinfectant solution. The donation was already sent from the production plant in Sudbury, England, in the first week of February and arrived at the hospitals yesterday, February 16.

“LANXESS feels deeply connected to the people in China, not least because of our 1,200 employees and eight production sites in the country,” says Michael Schäfer, Head of LANXESS’s Material Protection Products business unit, where Rely+On Virkon is manufactured. “With our disinfectant Rely+On Virkon we can effectively help to contain the epidemic.”

Rely+On Virkon inactivates coronavirus quickly



Independent tests have proven that Rely+On Virkon inactivates a closely related surrogate of the currently spreading coronavirus strain. From these tests it can be concluded that Rely+On Virkon is also effective against SARS-CoV-2.

Rely+On Virkon is diluted for application and sprayed on hard surfaces and equipment. It can therefore help to reduce the risk of contamination of surfaces, door handles, tables or chairs during disinfection measures in hospitals, but also at public transport terminals, airports, shopping malls, etc.

Specialty chemicals company LANXESS has developed a black pigment that reflects 20 percent more of the sun’s near-infrared radiation (NIR) than conventional products. By means of coloring with Bayferrox 303 T (in foreground of picture), the service life of plastic components can therefore be extended, as they are less exposed to temperature fluctuations.
