ZAP 256® has been designed to provide effective cleaning, deodorizing, sanitization and disinfection specifically for hospitals, nursing homes, schools, food processing plants, food service establishments, and other institutions where housekeeping is of prime importance in controlling the hazard of cross contamination.

ZAP 256®, when used as directed, is formulated to disinfect non-porous, inanimate environmental surfaces such as walls, floors, sink tops, toilet bowls, tables, chairs, telephones, and bed frames. For larger areas such as operating rooms, patient care facilities, and restrooms, ZAP 256® is designed to provide both general cleaning and disinfecting.

ZAP 256® deodorizes those areas which generally are hard to keep fresh smelling such as garbage storage areas, empty garbage bins and cans, toilet bowls, and other areas which are prone to odors caused by microorganisms.

Recommended Usage (Disinfection):

DISINFECTION - To disinfect inanimate, hard surfaces add, 0.5 ounce of ZAP 256® per gallon of water. Apply solution with a mop, cloth, sponge or hand pump trigger sprayer so as to wet all surfaces thoroughly. Allow to remain wet for 10 minutes, then remove excess liquid. Remove gross filth or heavy soil prior to application of this product. Prepare a fresh solution for each use.

To disinfect toilet bowls, flush toilet, add 0.5 ounce of ZAP 256® directly to the bowl water. Swab the bowl completely using a scrub brush or toilet mop, making sure to get under the rim. Let stand for 10 minutes and flush.

Recommended Usage (Sanitation):


To sanitize previously cleaned and rinsed non-porous food contact surfaces, prepare a 200 ppm active quaternary solution by adding 1 ounce of
ZAP 256® to 5 gallons of water.

To sanitize immobile items such as tanks, chopping blocks, and counter tops, flood the area with a cloth or sponge making sure to wet all surfaces completely for at least 60 seconds. Let air dry. Prepare a fresh solution for each use.

To sanitize mobile items such as drinking glasses and eating utensils, immerse in a 200 ppm active quaternary solution for at least 60 seconds making sure to immerse completely. Remove and let air dry. Prepare a fresh solution daily or more frequently as soil is apparent.

When used for sanitization of previously cleaned feed equipment or food contract items, limit active quaternaries to 200 ppm. At this level, NO POTABLE WATER RINSE IS REQUIRED. ZAP 256® is an effective sanitizer when diluted in water up to 600 ppm hardness (CaCO3).
