New anti-Coronavirus disinfectant from LKQ Euro Car Parts

Published:  03 July, 2020

Making sure customers are confident taking back their vehicles back from you is crucial as garages open up, and with this in mind LKQ Euro Car Parts is now offering a new disinfectant, designed to eliminate Coronavirus both in vehicles and around the workshop.

The CV1 Shot has been added to the LKQ ECP range of PPE and hygiene products has been developed in line with the latest guidelines from the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control.

The product is an aerosol and can be distributed throughout a vehicle via its ventilation system, without leaving any residue behind. The canister takes two minutes to discharge and then as little as five minutes to circulate, when the vents are open on full, and the vehicle in re-circulating mode.

Benzalkonium chloride is the active ingredient that breaks down and kills coronavirus, recommended by the EU and tested to EN1276 and EN13697 standards.

Colin Cottrell, Marketing and Central Operations Director at LKQ Euro Car Parts, commented: “Garages can offer a CV1 Shot treatment to customers before they hand the car back, to reassure them that it’s been fully disinfected with a top-quality product. Using an aerosol means the active ingredient is spread across all surfaces, including those that are difficult to reach.”

Colin added: “The CV1 Shot is also a time and cost-friendly solution to use throughout the garage premises, in reception, in the toilets and in the office.”

A multi-pack of six canisters is available. For more information visit:
