Mastitis Causing Bacteria: Products for Prevention
Quat-Chem has developed a range of teat dips and sprays to assist with the killing, treatment and prevention of mastitis causing bacteria on farms. Studies* show that the use of teat dips can reduce incidences of mastitis by up to 95%. The Quat-Chem range was developed and is manufactured at our facilities in the UK.
Pre-milking teat sanitisers
Pre-milking teat sanitisers are designed to prepare the cows teats for milking by removing dirt and killing mastitis causing bacteria present on the teat. Synopure and Synofoam are Quat-Chem's products for use before milking. These products produce a superior foam for increased contact time and visibility on teats; and offer the flexibility for dip, spray or foam cup application.
Synopure 1:7, based on lactic acid and peppermint, is a concentrate for dilution 1-part product to 7-parts water.
Synofoam is a ready-to-use product based on lactic acid and peppermint, designed to provide a superior clean before milking.
Pre and post-milking dips and sprays
Quat-Chem's pre- and post-milking dips and sprays are designed for use both before and after milking. These products include high emollient content for optimum skin conditioning and pass BSEN 1656 tests.
Synoshield, based on lactic acid, is a ready-to-use teat dip or spray containing peppermint and lanolin for superior skin conditioning.
Synodine is based on a blend of lactic acid and iodine. Tests have proven that Synodine remains active for up to 12 hours after application. Synodine is available ready-to-use and in a 1:3 concentrate.
Post-milking barrier teat dips
Post-milking barrier teat dips are designed to provide prolonged broad-spectrum protection of teat skin in between milking periods by forming a protective barrier over the teat. Quat-Chem's barrier teat dips also contain a specialised emollient blend, to safeguard skin condition. Synobarrier and Synofilm pass BSEN 1656 tests.
Synobarrier is based on a blend of lactic acid and iodine, with a superior emollient blend including lanolin.
