Rumours have been doing the rounds this week that Selden Research may have discontinued #SelsanE005 Pine disinfectant, deodoriser and cleaner.
#SelsanE005 disinfectant, deodoriser and cleaner has been in this industry for more years than we can remember, and we've been in it for nearly 40 years.
Some of our sources are speculating that because the chemical is a very viscus (thick) chemical type, and the manufacturing process to mix a batch correctly takes a lot longer than say a standard lime disinfectant like Evans Lime A015, more time equals more costs.
The other speculation is that the sales numbers for this particular product didn't justify the time and ultimately the cost of producing more batches in the future.
However, one source did comment that the rules/ guidelines for labelling a product as a disinfectant are constantly being made higher, this means just like all chemical manufacturers, Selden would have had to back its claims that Selsan E005 would disinfect within the new guidelines.
All speculation and conspiracy theories aside, we are sorry to hear that this product may be disappearing, but for now, we have emailed Selden Research hoping that they will clarify and we will run a follow up once we hear back.
