CLEANING AND SANITIZING
PANASONIC TOUGHBOOK
COMPUTERS AND
TOUGHPAD TABLETS.
When working in various industries such as food processing, healthcare and chemical
processing, it is critical that professionals keep their equipment clean and sanitized to
reduce or eliminate the spread of bacteria and germs. The same rule also applies to a
computer or tablet, as these devices are also in routine contact with users’ hands and
can potentially become contaminated.
Panasonic has tested a number of common disinfectant solutions for usability on
Toughbook® mobile computers and Toughpad® tablets, going above and beyond
typical testing procedures to simulate worst-case scenarios. Panasonic is committed
to providing the most durable, reliable mobile computing solutions and the most
comprehensive product support. Our goal is to ensure that any disinfectant solutions
we have approved on our devices will not compromise the performance of Toughbook
computers and Toughpad tablets.

APPLICATION AND TEST PROCEDURES
To keep your Toughbook® computer or Toughpad® tablet running for
as long as you do, Panasonic rigorously tested these devices to see
how many times they could be disinfected. The test procedure was
to wipe each area on the device with the liquid solution with a
pressure of 1 kg/cm2 for 10,000 times.
RECOMMENDED “WIPE” FORMS
OF DISINFECTANTS
Panasonic recommends disinfectant wipes to avoid prolonged
exposure to chemicals that can cause oxidation and paint
discoloration, and break down the rubber that seals the
devices. If the wipe form of these disinfectants is used and
the surface is dried soon after application, the computer will
be protected for years to come.

CONCLUSION
Panasonic is committed to providing the most durable and reliable
mobile computing solutions. Normal operation and sanitization with
disinfectant wipes should keep the computer functioning hassle-free
for years to come.
Although these disinfectants are tested for our products, Panasonic
does not endorse or advertise a particular brand of disinfectant and
cannot warrant their effectiveness.
