WHAT IS Dinaxine®?

Dinaxine® is a 2% solution of stabilized chlorine dioxide. It is a high-performance product specially formulated for applications where the following attributes are important:

  • No odor
  • No taste imparted
  • Non-corrosive
  • Very low toxicity, (Class 3)

DINAXINE® is an ideal replacement for chlorine, providing all of chlorine’s benefits without any of its weaknesses and detriments.

DINAXINE® does not chlorinate organic material.

DINAXINE® significantly decreases trihalomethanes (THMs), halo acetic acids (HAAs) and other chlorinated organic compounds. This is important in the primary use for chlorine dioxide, water disinfection.


  • No buildup, eliminating need for time consuming and costly cleanup and removal.
  • Does not contain or release formaldehyde.
  • Effective against a broad spectrum of microorganisms.
  • Surfactant action enhances cleaning.
  • Ideal for critical areas, ex: hatcheries, processing plants, farm equipment.
  • Functions well over a broad temperature range.
  • Effective performance on a wide variety of construction materials.
  • Fast acting.
  • Properly diluted solutions are not detrimental to waste treatment systems.
  • Not affected by hard water.
  • Compatible with water tolerant metals avoiding etching, pitting, or scale formation.


  • More effective than chlorine
  • Lower dose inclusion rate
  • Results in a lower environmental impact
  • A more selective oxidizer than chlorine
  • 2.6 times the oxidizing capacity of chlorine
  • Unlike chlorine, it does not react with ammonia, ammonium or most organic compounds.
  • Unlike chlorine, DINAXINE® is biocidal over a very broad pH range.
  • DINAXINE® is a broad-spectrum biocide.
  • The majority of applications with DINAXINE® will be used to control microorganisms.
  • All of these applications are approved uses by the EPA and FDA.


  • Disinfecting drinking water.
  • THM and HAA control in drinking water.
  • Bacterial control in cooling water
  • Bacterial control in paper processing.
  • Sanitizing the uncut fruits and vegetables.
  • Controlling bacteria in produce flume water.
  • Controlling bacteria in poultry processing.
  • Controlling bacteria in beverage and brewing equipment.
  • Sanitizing food processing facilities and equipment.

OTHER USES OF DINAXINE® are as a chemical oxidizing agent that destroy undesirable chemicals:

  • Odor control by the oxidation of hydrogen sulfide and organo-sulfur compounds.
  • Toxic chemical destruction by the oxidation of phenols and mercaptans.
  • Oxidative color removal and bleaching.


Suitable for use on a wide variety of surfaces. In actual field use, it reduces contamination on commonly used materials of construction, including stainless steel, aluminum, painted and unpainted concrete, plastic, rubber, wood, and paper. Furthermore, it is no more damaging to these materials than is water. Even after repeated applications, there was no detectable buildup or tacky residue remaining after the treated surfaces had dried. DINAXINE® also reduces airborne microorganism counts when applied via existing humidification or individual fogging equipment. There have been no adverse effects reported in the hatch rate, grow-out rate, or general health appearance of fowl that were hatched and processed in
DINAXINE® treated areas.


Antimicrobial Activity

DINAXINE®: A Versatile Disinfectant

DINAXINE® kills spores, viruses, fungi and algae within the first minute of contact over a wide temperature range and reduces contact time 3-10 times over chlorine and 40-60 times over chloramines while being effective over a wide pH range. DINAXINE® exhibits a superior residual decay rate over ozone and is not as susceptible to varying levels of total organic carbon (TOC) making it more cost effective over ozone at elevated TOC levels in water.

DINAXINE® is an FDA-approved seafood process operation additive.

DINAXINE® is a highly-refined 2% stabilized chlorine dioxide solution, scientifically-proven to inhibit antimicrobial and enzymatic activity. This research-based additive controls a broad spectrum of microorganisms. As a pioneering product in specialty chlorine dioxide, DINATEC has been a leader in technical advances and government regulatory approvals. As a result, DINAXINE®s formulation is virtually an odorless, clear, stable solution, which can be stored, transported and used without special consideration. Whether you’re on the boat, at the dock or in the processing plant, used properly,

DINAXINE® is non-corrosive, easy to use and most importantly, Safe.

DINAXINE® is shipped as 2% stabilized chlorine dioxide solution and does not require any special USDOT permits.


Tested extensively at the University of Florida’s Food Science and Nutrition Department, DINAXINE®’s overwhelming success resulted in its approval by the FDA. DINAXINE® testing included a series of microbiological, quality improvement analysis, shelf-life extension, nutritional value outcomes, and organoleptic evaluations. In addition, DINAXINE®’s positive effects were proven on a wide variety of seafood products including Salmon, Grouper, Shrimp and Scallops, using both whole fish and fillets.


Depending on conditions, DINAXINE® is used at concentrations of between 40 and 50 ppm. You can activate the solution with a small amount of GRAS acid (generally recognized as safe) – preferably citric acid before applying. This activation produces chlorine dioxide, and nearly instantly produces a highly-effective antimicrobial and enzymatic inhibitor. Once activated, add DINAXINE® to the processing operation: water, ice, and washing or rinsing water. Most importantly, add DINAXINE® when transporting your seafood to extend freshness.


DINAXINE® will inhibit antimicrobial and enzymatic activity as well as eliminate odors without affecting nutritional quality. In addition, seafood products treated with DINAXINE® have added organoleptic qualities and increased shelf life. Adding DINAXINE® to ice when transporting seafood will extend freshness.


The use of stabilized chlorine dioxide to control microorganisms in seafood process operations is published in the Code of Federal Regulations at 21 CFR 173.325. It should be noted that any seafood that is intended to be consumed raw will be subject to a potable water rinse prior to consumption.


It is recommended that Dinaxine® be used as the general-purpose equipment and surface sanitizer to assure maximum pathogen control within the processing facility. Internationally recognized as one of the best sanitizers available, Dinaxine® has been accepted as the premium sanitizer for critical point microbial control. It has been proven effective against Listeria, E. coli O157: H7, Salmonella, Campylobacter, and numerous other organisms of human health concern. Uniquely, Dinaxine® is extremely effective against biofilms which harbor and protect disease-causing organisms. The tandem use of DINAXINE® and Dinaxine® in your sanitation program will ensure that your facility will meet the guidelines set forth by HAACP standards. Most importantly, the assurance knowing your seafood products are safe and of the highest quality.

DINAXINE®effectively cleans over a broad range of use-conditions.

It can be easily diluted with available water without concern for reducing performance because of interactions with water hardness or ph. Fogging, atomizing, or spraying are all effective ways to apply DISINFEKT Sanitizers.

No special application equipment is required. DINAXINE® has demonstrated effectiveness in controlling microorganisms in the following critical areas:

  • Barns and farrowing areas
  • General farm animal housing areas
  • Processing areas and equipment
  • Egg rooms
  • Tray washers
  • Hatchers
  • Produce warehouses
  • Setters


DINAXINE® is suitable for use on many surfaces. It is compatible with all materials of construction that can tolerate exposure to water. The following materials were subjected to 25 spray/dry cycles at 25°C, without rinsing, with no detectable changes relative to duplicate materials sprayed with water:

  • Aluminum
  • Polyethylene
  • Glazed Ceramic Tile
  • Chrome-Plated Steel
  • Brass
  • Stainless Steel
  • Unglazed Ceramic Tile
  • Latex Rubber
  • Glass
  • Copper
  • Unpainted Wood
  • Linoleum Floor Tile



DINAXINE® is effective on most commonly used materials of construction. DINAXINE® effectively destroys microorganisms on aluminum, stainless steel, polyethylene, glazed ceramic tile, unglazed ceramic tile, and unpainted wood.

DINAXINE® is usually applied to the front end (at the pump or the clarifier) of a drinking water plant. This provides the longest contact time and permits the lowest possible chlorine dioxide dose to be used to meet the CT requirements. Only chlorine dioxide and ozone may be use for CT credits prior to filtration.
