BDS 2000 Decontamination Agent
BDS 2000 is a concentrated decontamination agent made up of two separate components. It is used to deactivate and remove biological hazards from surfaces or interiors.
To remove biological particles, the two components of BDS 2000 are mixed with water to form a solution, and applied to the contaminated surface using a foaming device such as a foaming nozzle. After a reaction time of 10 to 15 minutes, the agent together with the biological contaminants is rinsed off using water from a pressure washer. Alternatively, with suitable equipment BDS 2000 can be applied to biologically contaminated interior spaces as an aerosol. The active ingredient is a special, stabilised peracetic acid.
The other ingredient is a buffer system combined with a surfactant that causes the agent to foam. When antifreeze is used, the agent is effective at temperatures from -30 °C to +49 °C. BDS 2000 is completely biodegradable and satisfies the requirements of water hazard class 1, which means it has a low hazardous level for water. It has already been tested by several institutes, such as the Wehrwissenschaftliches Institut für Schutztechnologien – ABC-Schutz (WIS), (German Research Institute for Protective Technologies – NBC Protection), the Netherlands Organisation for Applied Scientific Research (TNO) and the Military Technical Institute of Protection, Brno (MTIP).
