What are Qauternary Ammonium Compounds?

Quats (quaternary ammonium compounds) are potent disinfectant chemicals commonly found in disinfectant wipes, sprays and other household cleaners that are designed to kill germs. 


Quaternary ammonium compounds are nitrogenous organic compounds used as disinfectants in restaurants, hospitals and homes. The basic chemical structure of ammonium is a nitrogen atom with four hydrogen atoms attached around it. Quaternary ammonium is created when each of those four hydrogen atoms are replaced with some combination of four other organic chains or rings. Because of the limitless number of possible combinations, there are many different versions of quaternary ammonium on the market already and new ones are constantly in development. Although some of the variations perform better than others, there are a number of advantages and disadvantages that they have in common- Hunker.com

How does Siqura Work?

SIQURA combines two common substances we use everyday to prevent bacteria and fungal growth on surfaces.  The active ingredient in SIQURA is an antimicrobial derived from coconut oil that is grafted onto a molecular adhesive.  It's this adhesive that keeps the antimicrobial in place, helping to protect surfaces for much longer periods of time.​

SIQURA is a liquid that can be applied to most dry surfaces by spraying, or as a foam applicator.  Allowing the surface to dry will coat the surface with a microscopic protective layer for continuous antimicrobial protection. https://www.siqura.com.au/how-it-protects
