MDF-500®’s decontamination formula is a complex mixture of organic and inorganic chemicals that produce simultaneous reactions that destroy both the chemical and biological materials on contact. Chemical formulae, such as MDF-500®, that destroy the spore-forming microorganisms, are called sporicides. This is synonymous with the term “sterilizer.”
A sterilizer is an antimicrobial chemical formula that destroys or eliminates all form of microbial life in the inanimate environment, including bacteria spores.
Bacteria spores are the most difficult of the microorganisms to destroy. Therefore, if a formula can destroy bacteria spores it can eradicate all types of microorganisms (all types of bacteria, fungi, mold, viruses and spores).
MDF-500® destroys microorganisms by punching holes in their membrane, leading to an osmotic imbalance, causing the organism to implode, destroying it completely. MDF-500® then destroys all of the remaining parts of the organism, preventing it from any form of replication. The science is such that when Part A and Part B are combined in equal amounts, a new compound is formed called an accelerated organic peroxygen.
