ColorCore tools are sufficient for many cleaning applications, but they are not intended to replace Vikan’s hygiene line for high-risk applications like food manufacturing. See the comparison chart on the back page. Always conduct a thorough risk assessment before introducing new sanitation tools or plans.

Between Vikan’s hygiene line and ColorCore, outfitting entire operations with trusted, effective, and color-coded tools is now easier than ever.
