The peroxy compounds are microbiocides. When mixed with water and applied by spraying, fogging or immersing, they kill bacteria, fungi and viruses on hard surfaces including equipment, floors and walls, indoors in agricultural premises, food establishments, commercial/industrial locations, hospital/medical institutions, and bathrooms in residences. Hydrogen peroxide and peroxyacetic acid products are formulated as liquids, and the one registered product that contains potassium peroxymonosulfate sulfate is formulated as a solid soluble concentrate.
