MDF-500® provides these two steps in a single application: the quaternary amines in part A penetrate the cell wall, and the hydrogen peroxide in part B then oxidizes critical substances inside the cell.

The solution kills mold, mildew, and fungal spores at 99.99999 (Log 7 Kill) rating.

MDF-500® then “weighs” down the dead spores, they drop to the surface and can be Hepa-vacced or simply wiped away.

MDF-500® for smoke works in reverse, the peroxide finishes the oxidation process started by the fire (this is what causes the odor) and then the detergent in part A is a very effective tool for the washing away the smoke residue.

Example: anthrax

Anthrax is a spore-forming microorganism called an endospore. An endospore forms a dormant non-reproductive structure produced by certain bacteria. The formation of an endospore is typically triggered by a lack of nutrients and usually occurs in Gram positive bacteria in endospore formation when it divides the cell wall with one side of engulfing the other. MDF-500® destroys endospores by disrupting the cell wall or by weakening the cytoplasmic membrane, which allows MDF-500® to enter the cell, interrupt the cellular metabolism and reproduction. MDF-500® also changes the osmotic pressure around the cell, which causes an imbalance in the internal cellular pressure resulting in the total collapse of the cellular membrane.
