Husky 815 HCD Disinfectant Effective Against C. diff spores in 2 Minutes


Canberra is pleased to offer Husky 815 HCD Disinfectant, a hydrogen-peroxide based disinfectant that is effective in killing a broad spectrum of harmful bacteria and viruses, including C. diff.   Clostridium difficile, (C. diff), is a spore forming bacterium that is very difficult to remove and can be transferred to hospital patients via the hands of a healthcare worker or visitor who has touched a contaminated surface or item.  Preventing the spread of C. difficile is particularly difficult because its spores are resistant to standard disinfectants and can live on hard surfaces for months.   Husky 815 HCD Disinfectant is effective against C. diff. in 2 minutes helping hospitals to reduce the risk of healthcare-associated infections.

Introducing New Floor Cleaner With Enzymes


Canberra Corporation is pleased to introduce Husky 404 Floor Cleaner (with Enzymes).  This enzyme-fortified cleaner and degreaser attacks grease, oils, and other contaminants on floor surfaces. In kitchen environments, grease is inevitable and can build up on tile and grout causing floors to be slippery and a safety hazard.  The enzymes in Husky 404 penetrate deep into porous surfaces and grout lines to remove a wide range grease, oils, and other embedded soils.  The enzymes continue to work by degrading residual organics even after the cleaning process is complete.  Husky 404 Floor Cleaner (with Enzymes) also helps to control odors by breaking down odor causing organics resulting in cleaner and safer floors with fewer odors.

Canberra Participates in the NSF Non Food Compounds Registration Program


Canberra is proud to announce its participation in the NSF Non Food Compounds Registration Program.  Seventeen (17) of Canberra's Husky and JAWS brand cleaning products are currently listed in the online NSF White Book - Non Foods Compounds Listing Directory. 

This voluntary program, which replaces the authorization program previously administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), provides documented proof of the acceptability of cleaning and disinfecting products for use in and around food establishments and food processing facilities.

The FDA aims to ensure that the food supply is safe, and it is shifting its focus from responding to contamination to preventing it.  Therefore, food establishments and food processing facilities are specifying non-food products, including cleaning products, that have been proven to reduce food safety risks.  "Canberra is committed to providing our customers with the highest quality cleaning products.  We believe it is imperative that we invest in the NSF Non Food Compounds Registration Program to ensure that our end use customers can safely use these fine products in their facilities", said Danny Johnson, President. 

Canberra NSF Non-Food Registered listed products include Husky and JAWS brand Glass and Hard Surface Cleaners, Multi-Purpose Cleaners, Industrial Cleaners, Restroom Cleaners and Floor Care Products.

Canberra Introduces Full Line of CARB Compliant Floor Finishes


All Husky floor finishes now contain less than one percent VOCs

Canberra has reformulated all Husky floor finishes to California Air Resource Board (CARB) standards and now contain less than one percent Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC), thus reducing the environmental impact of this category. CARB is widely considered to be the leader in air quality protection and many state regulations now prohibit the sale of floor polishes or waxes that contain VOC in excess of one percent.

Additionally, product performance and ease of application has been improved as a result of this reformulation process. Canberra's Sales Team is available for floor finish demonstrations - please contact your account representative to set an appointment. For more about Canberra's Floor Care program, click here.

EPA Program Recognizes Canberra as a Product Formulator Champion


Canberra commits to use only safer surfactants in Husky® products

 The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)'s Design for the Environment (DfE) program, as part of the Safer Detergents Stewardship Initiative (SDSI), has recognized Canberra as a Product Formulator Champion, the highest level of recognition offered in the category. As an SDSI Champion, Canberra must demonstrate the use of only safer surfactants in products and document a strategy for ensuring that only safer surfactants are used.

Safer surfactants break down quickly to non-polluting compounds and help protect aquatic life in both fresh and salt water. Nonylphenol ethoxylates, commonly referred to as NPEs, are an example of a surfactant class that does not meet the definition of a safer surfactant. NPE's take longer to degrade than other cleaning agents, thus increasing the amount of time organisms are exposed to these chemicals. All Husky® products are NPE-free.
