AHP Technology - Diversey


Accelerated Hydrogen Peroxide (AHP) Technology is a break through advancement in infection prevention delivering fast-acting, broad spectrum disinfection with a safety profile.


“Hydrogen Peroxide acts quickly against major pathogens, is odourless and safe to use on most healthcare surfaces.” William Rutala, Director Hospital Epidemiology, UNC Healthcare.

Accelerated hydrogen peroxide (AHP) is the ultimate disinfectant solution in the prevention and control of HAIs.

AHP is a patented formula of hydrogen peroxide that has been synthetically accelerated to dramatically increase its germicidal potency and cleaning performance.

Disinfectants using AHP Technology have short contact times and the right validated efficacy. It attacks the right pathogens that are the cause of concern for facilities, pathogens that causes HAI’s and outbreaks such as MRSA, VRE, Norovirus.

AHP based disinfectants deliver the perfect balance of potent germicidal kill, cleaning efficiency, fast-acting capabilities, safety and environmental accountability.  

Diversey AHP Disinfectant Range

The Diversey range of patented Accelerated Hydrogen Peroxide disinfectants are fast acting, broad spectrum one step cleaner disinfectants that are safe to patients, users, surfaces and the environment.

As part of a multimodal infection prevention strategy, Diversey offers product solutions that are powered by AHP technology to effectively manage daily, terminal and outbreak disinfection.

Rutala and Weber (2014) state that the selection of the ideal product comes down to five key criteria:

  1. Kill claims for the most prevalent healthcare pathogens
  2. Fast kill time and acceptable wet contact time
  3. Safety
  4. Ease of Use
  5. Supplier Support and value

Diversey range of AHP disinfectant complies with these five key criteria:

  • High safety profile: Odourless, fragrance-free, non-irritating to skin, non-corrosive to eyes
  • Fast-acting: Short contact time ensures proper use and helps increase compliance
  • Surface protection: Non-corrosive, non-bleaching. Disinfects hard surfaces without creating destructive microcracks that harbour pathogens
  • Environmentally friendly – AHP biodegrades to oxygen and water
  • Versatile & Ease of Use- available as RTU liquid, Wipes and Concentrate
