Stalosan hygiene powder products Stalosan F is well-known worldwide for its high efficacy profile, proven through several independent laboratory studies and farm trials. Therefore, Stalosan F has become a product of choice when farmers are faced with uncontrollable infection levels in resting areas and subsequently poor animal performance. STALOSAN F In addition to the basic ability to dry and break down harmful waste products, Stalosan F reaches further with special active ingredients that eliminate microorganisms and inhibit their metabolism. As a result, the highest possible efficacy is achieved, which makes Stalosan F an outstanding biocide with the ability to control microorganisms at all levels independent of the moisture level. The technology of Stalosan F is based on highpriced quality ingredients and approved active biocides contrary to simple limestone-based drying agents. LOW pH-VALUE IN RESTING AREAS IS CRUCIAL FOR THE ANIMAL DEFENCE SYSTEM AGAINST INFECTION In general, pathogenic bacteria perform poorly in acidic environments. The animal’s protection mechanism is to excrete a sticky acidic substance (sebum) that covers the skin, leading to an inhibition of harmful bacteria. Therefore it is regarded an important first line defence against disease causing bacteria. Ammonia from animal waste products has a pH-value of 13. This creates an alkaline animal FIGURE 2: EFFECT OF ALKALINE PRODUCTS ON THE SKIN Pathogenic bacteria Ammonia, limestone, hydrated lime and other components with high pH break down sebum and increase the risk of infection SEBUM (acidic waxy matter) SKIN SEBUM SKIN TISSUE Sebum consists of wax, fatty acids and beneficial nonpathogenic bacteria. Sebum keeps skin moist and flexible, and possesses antimicrobial activity through acidity, enzyme activity and symbiosis with beneficial bacteria. Stalosan® TISSUE Ammonia, limestone, hydrated lime and other alkaline products break down sebum on the skin and provokes infection by pathogenic bacteria.
