Title: ANTIMICROBIAL COMPOSITIONS
Abstract:
An antimicrobial composition comprises a nonionic surfactant, optionally a terpene-like component, a cationic biocide that is compatible with the nonionic surfactant and the terpene-like component, and a source of alkalinity which ensures a pH of at least 8.5 in the composition. The combination of at least two of the nonionic, cationic and terpene-like components provides a synergystic antimicrobial action that is greater than the additive anti-microbial action of the at least two individual components.
