Gurtler Industries Introduces Disinfectant Mint D-3: Disinfects in 3 minutes or less!

Gurtler Industries announced the development of Mint D-3, a new concentrated, one-step, hospital-use disinfectant that is effective against pathogenic bacteria and viruses in 3 minutes or less. Mint D-3 is the fastest-acting, EPA-registered, all-purpose quaternary cleaner-disinfectant on the market.  Mint D-3 reflects Gurtler’s dedication to innovation through the continual evaluation and improvement of its products.

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, the Gurtler family and its team of research experts and application technologists have worked tirelessly to create breakthrough laundering and sanitation products and processes ideal for use in institutional healthcare settings. Mint D-3 is registered as effective versus SARS-CoV2— the virus that causes COVID-19, with only 60 seconds contact time!  Mint D-3 meets the HLAC Accreditation Standard Requirement: EPA-registered hospital-grade disinfectant effective against HIV and HBV.

Mint D-3 is formulated for use in daily maintenance programs with a balance of detergents and malodor counteractants that deliver effective cleaning, disinfecting, and odor control. Intended for washable hard, non-porous, non-food surfaces, Mint D-3 is an ideal detergent/sanitizer/disinfectant for Critical Control Points in healthcare laundry operations such as

  • laundry-cart washing systems

  • inside surfaces of linen delivery vehicles
  • employee break rooms, lunchrooms, door handles
  • restrooms, locker rooms, and more
