Vehicle sanitiser kit brought to market by WAI

Date: Monday 27 April 2020

With the UK facing unprecedented circumstances, WAI has used its global supply chain to source products the automotive aftermarket requires to keep business moving, bringing a high-level, non-corrosive vehicle disinfectant cleaner, STERI-7, to market.

There are a number of technicians continuing to service and repair key workers’ vehicles, and with strict procedures in place to maximise health and safety, it is important that they have access to the appropriate equipment to reassure customers that the vehicle has been thoroughly disinfected before handing it back.

STERI-7 is a global brand used by Government facilities, and technicians simply need to spray the ready-to-use disinfectant inside the vehicle and close the doors.

A few seconds later bacteria, viruses and spores on that surface will be eradicated up to 99.99%.

Once it has been left to dry, a reactive barrier is created on the surface, which will then regenerate to give up to seven days’ added protection.

The product has been tested, and is effective, against many commonly occurring bacteria, yeast and viruses that are known to be highly transmissible and can result in infections and illnesses.

Technicians are recommended to use 50ml per use, meaning there is enough per kit for 100 vehicles. The STERI-7 vehicle kit also comes complete with a five-litre pump sprayer, 100 ‘This vehicle has been sanitised’ stickers and a pack of 10 disposable masks.

Richard Welland, WAIglobal UK managing director said:

“The automotive aftermarket is playing an essential role in helping to keep key workers on the road and it’s important that technicians remain safe while doing so. Our global supply chain is enabling us to provide much-needed products to the industry during this difficult time.”
