Getac Cleaning Guidelines

Updated March 23rd, 2020


Recommended disinfectants

Getac selected some of the most common disinfectants and tested them. The test procedures covered the device, not the accessories. A robotic arm swiped each device 10,000 times at a pressure of 1kg/cm2. Below is the portfolio of Getac products that have passed the sanitization tests and remain fully functional.


Under normal operations, Getac devices that were sanitized with the above solutions and others with the same active ingredients were found to maintain full functionality. Getac does not endorse any specific commercial sanitizer or manufacturer nor guarantees its effectiveness.
