Triple7 Iodosan is a broad spectrum, detergent disinfectant effective against a wide range of bacteria & organisms.

Triple7 Iodosan is a broad spectrum, detergent disinfectant with a light iodine odour.  It is formulated to yield at least 1.75% m/v of available iodine and is effective against a wide range of bacteria & organisms.

Triple7 Iodosan is an acid formulation containing iodine which I held in a complex chemical structure known as Iodophor.

Like all iodine-based preparations, Triple7 Iodosan relies on free iodine for its anti-microbial activity. However, in the case of Triple7 Iodosan an additional antimicrobial factor operates.

The sanitising capacity of Triple7 Iodosan is determined by the total amount of free iodine.  Triple7 Iodosan has been formulated so that at the recommended dilutions practically all the iodine is free, ensuring a rapid biocidal action.

As the product releases iodine, the ion H is generated, transforming the complex into a 'polyelectrolyte', which binds to the negatively charged bacterial cell wall. This and the general affinity of iodine for cell membrane proteins, means that the iodine complex helps deliver iodine to its target organism. The iodine denatures sensitive proteins in the membranes resulting in lysis and cell death.

The chemical basis of the germicidal action of Triple7 Iodosan is by the oxidation and iodination of amino acids, sulfhydryl compounds, peptides, proteins, enzymes, vitamin C, lipids and cytosine, resulting in the in-activation of molecules that are essential for biological activity.

Triple7 Iodosan has a 99.9% kill rate in two minutes at a 1:500 dilution when tested against most organisms.

Triple7 Iodosan can be used in a variety of disinfection and sanitising applications including:

  • Water tanks, amphibious craft and bilges
  • Sewage and effluent tank cleaning
  • Cooling tower, farm equipment, buildings & broiler sheds
  • Kitchen & Food preparation areas and equipment
  • Glassware & Utensil cleaning
  • Laboratory instruments and equipment
  • Food and Dairy plants
  • Bottling and Canning Industries
  • Bins & Garbage Compactors
  • Poultry drinking water
  • Amenities cleaning
  • Hospitals, Operating Theatres, Ambulances, Aged Care and Morgues
  • Hotels and Restaurants
  • Swimming Pools, Change-rooms
  • Plant and Cool Room sanitising
  • Ideal for marine disinfection flushes. Quickly biodegrades, allowing fast tank entry after sanitisation.
  • Effective against gram positive and gram negative bacteria, viruses, moulds, fungi, spores etc.


The extreme concentration of this product makes it very cost effective.  For general sanitising applications, 1Litre of concentrate makes up to 500Litres of Ready to Use product.  Buying products in a concentrate form saves on storage space and transport costs, as well as lowering fuel emissions related to the transportation.


Standard Dilution Rates:


Triple7 Iodosan can be applied through a spray bottle or wiped directly onto the surface.

For sanitising and cleaning of hard surfaces dilute Triple7 Iodosan 1:500 (20mL/10Ltrs of water).  This dilution gives 35ppm titratable iodine.  Normal contact time for effective sanitising at this dilution is 5 minutes.  For no-rinse sanitisation the recommended dilution is 1:700.

Improving Business

Better Results, Better System Performance and Lower Costs

Wide Spectrum

The anti-microbial activity of Triple7 Iodosan is broad spectrum and the product acts against many species from the major groups of micro-organisms; gram positive and gram negative bacteria, yeast and other fungi, viruses (including AIDS), protozoans, algae, spores, and treponema. (see table on Overview page)

Quick Kill

Triple7 Iodosan has a 99.9% kill rate in two minutes at a 1:500 dilution when tested against most organisms.  The amber colour acts as an activity indicator – when colour disappears, the product is exhausted.

Time Saving

Triple7 Iodosan quickly biodegrades, allowing fast entry into tanks and confined space after sanitisation, reducing down time.  The product is also effective at low dilutions that does not require rinsing after sanitising the surface.  This saves on time and water.

Effective on Organic Matter

Triple7 Iodosan kills disinfects organic matter quicker than most sanitisers, and has far less product de-activation when doing so.

No Special Storage Requirements

Triple7 Iodosan has no Hazchem rating so it needs no special storage areas, lowering the cost of transport, handling and storage.

Cost Effective

Triple7 Iodosan is highly concentrated, so a little goes a long way. Plus, you can use the product for so many different applications - you don’t need a lot of different products - making it simple for your staff to use.

Safe for Equipment

Triple7 Iodosan sanitises without damaging seals or rubbers.  We recommend always pretesting the product on light coloured or porous surfaces to ensure it does not stain the surface.

Improving Lives

Health Safety and Environmental Benefits

Safe for you and your Workers

Triple7 Iodosan is a non-toxic, non-sensitising, non-irritating, non-staining, non-corrosive and virtually odourless.  It does not contain chemicals determined by the EPA or OH&S to be carcinogenic or suspected carcinogens, therefore you are preventing future litigation claims.

Enhances Workplace Safety

You can replace hazardous products without changing equipment or procedures and because Triple7 Iodosan is free of hazardous air pollutants and toxic chemicals, it is safe to use in confined areas.

Triple7 Iodosan creates healthier and more pleasant working environments by reducing toxins and allergens in the workplace, lowering the risk of chemical sensitivities from cleaning products.

Safe for the Environment

Triple7 Iodosan contains no ozone depleting chemicals or hazardous air pollutants and the product is readily biodegradable.

Improving Innovation

Enables New Applications

Suitable for use in Food Processing Areas

Triple7 Iodosan has AQIS accreditation, making it a powerful sanitiser that is safe to use in Registered Meat Establishments.

Biodegrades Quickly Once Used

Because Triple7 Iodosan quickly biodegrades, it allows for fast entry into tanks and confined areas after sanitisation, thereby reducing down time.

Plus, the amber colour acts as an activity indicator – when colour disappears, the product is exhausted, and water is safe to use / drink.
