Challenges of our time

Multi-resistant germs and bacteria, mutating influenza viruses and currently Covid-19 are among the challenges of our time and affect many areas of our everyday life. In this context, Hydroliq is playing an important part within this problem solving.


Hydroliq has further developed a technology that has gone into the literature as chlorine alkali electrolysis and was developed especially for Russian space travel in the 1960s.

Hydroliq produces highly stable water-sodium chloride compounds, which disinfect surfaces without leaving any caustic residues.


An electrochemical manufacturing process produces a disinfectant solution that is pH-neutral and at the same time very stable.

Upon encountering a germ, Hydroliq disinfectant solutions promptly initiates the removal of electrons from the cell membrane, resulting in membrane instability. The fragile cell membrane can no longer endure the osmotic pressure, ultimately leading to rupture of the germ cell. Once the germ is effectively eradicated, our product decomposes into its harmless and biodegradable water and sodium chloride.

With a single application, our product effectively eliminates 99.99% of all germs, including antibiotic-resistant bacteria.

According to the Swiss Federal Office of Public Health Hydroliq products are internationally approved biocidal products, disinfect and eliminate
  • bacteria
  • viruses (enveloped viruses, such as influenza viruses and Covid-19)
  • yeast (mold, candida)
All Hydroliq solutions are expressly not classified as dangerous goods according to the Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals. Use biocides carefully. Always read the label and product information before use.
