The coronavirus has naturally led to significant demand for products that can maximise health and safety. In response to this, a new product has been launched that can be used by technicians when servicing a vehicle to kill dangerous germs and viruses.

The Ring Auto Expel Misting Machine and Sanitising Liquid, brought to market by Ring Automotive, provides technicians and customers with peace of mind, sanitising the entire vehicle cabin, including the air-conditioning system.

The biocidal formula is proven to kill enveloped viruses, such as coronavirus and MRSA, and is suitable for use on all services, including leather and clothes.

The easy-to-use mist machine heats up the sanitising liquid and produces a fine dry mist, leaving no wet residue, so it is ready to instantly drive away.

Technicians simply need to run the machine for just five minutes and allow the dry mist to settle for a further 25 minutes, meaning the vehicle will be free from bacteria and viruses within half an hour.

To sanitise the vehicle’s air-conditioning system, the recycle air button needs to be switched on to pass the mist through the system.

As well as creating a safe and clean environment for technicians and their customers, the ROHS approved mist machine will freshen the vehicle cabin, removing any unwanted odours.

An alternative option, the Auto Expel Sanitising Spray, is also available. Similar to the mist, it is specially formulated to kill germs, viruses and bacteria from all surfaces, including those that porous or non-porous.

To achieve maximum effect, technicians are recommended to spray the surface with the sanitising liquid and wipe down with a cloth before and after carrying out work.

For the most effective clean, the spray should be used alongside the Auto Expel Misting machine on the touch points of the vehicle.
