Over 20 years ago, Frasers became aware of a client-led supply demand for a particular series of products produced by an American manufacturer; this was the Nuvite Chemical Compound Company Inc, then of Brooklyn, N.Y. specialists in the manufacture of a range of high-quality aircraft appearance products. At that time Nuvite had no desire to supply their goods themselves outside of the USA, so Frasers offered to supply their products to their client themselves. As that appeared to both parties to work well, it was decided to try the same with other quality aircraft product manufacturers, and the rest – as they say – is history with Alexander Fraser & Son Trading being formed, latterly brought up-to-date as Frasers Aerospace ™. Frasers Aerospace is a Aerospace Material Solutions provider.

If I find bedbugs inside my aircraft which I believe is quite common, is there a product I can use to get rid of them?

Bed bugs can be found on aircraft, but it is relatively rare. Bed bugs are small, reddish-brown insects that feed on the blood of humans and animals. They are known to infest places where people congregate or spend extended periods of time, and this can include airplanes. Bed bugs are often associated with hotels, hostels, and other accommodations, but they can also be transported on luggage and clothing, making it possible for them to infest aircraft as well.

Aircraft are generally cleaned and inspected regularly, and airlines take measures to prevent and address bed bug infestations. However, it’s still possible for passengers to unknowingly carry bed bugs onto a plane, and these pests can hide in luggage or personal belongings.

If you suspect you have encountered bed bugs on an aircraft or in your travels, it’s important to notify the airline or relevant authorities so that appropriate action can be taken to address the issue. Travelers should also take precautions, such as inspecting hotel rooms and their luggage, to minimize the risk of bringing bed bugs home with them.

Our Bacoban for Aerospace is effective against bedbugs. Tested in a laboratory in Germany, Bacoban for Aerospace was found to have a kill rate of between 80 and 100 percent when the area was fogged with our 3% solution. The test method used was BPD BioG 005-02.

What are the main parameters when diluting concentrated cleaning chemicals for use when cleaning aircraft?

When diluting concentrated cleaning chemicals for cleaning aircraft, several main parameters should be taken into consideration. These parameters include:

Concentration: The initial concentration of the aviation approved cleaning chemical is a crucial factor when diluting it. It determines the strength and effectiveness of the solution. The concentration is typically indicated on the product label or technical datasheet.

Desired Dilution Ratio: The desired dilution ratio specifies the proportion of the concentrated cleaning chemical to be mixed with a diluent (usually water) to achieve the desired strength. For example, a dilution ratio of 1:10 means mixing one part of the concentrate with ten parts of water.

Safety Precautions: Diluting cleaning chemicals often involves handling potentially hazardous substances. It is essential to follow safety precautions such as wearing appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE), working in a well-ventilated area, and avoiding contact with skin or eyes.

Container Size: The size of the container used for dilution determines the total volume of the diluted solution. Consider the appropriate container size based on the amount of diluted solution needed and the mixing ease.

Mixing Technique: Dilution should be done using proper mixing techniques to ensure a uniform distribution of the concentrate in the diluent. This can involve stirring, shaking, or using mechanical mixing equipment, depending on the volume and characteristics of the cleaning chemical.

Water Quality: The quality of the water used for dilution can affect the performance of the cleaning solution. Hard water with high mineral content may reduce the effectiveness of some cleaning chemicals. In such cases, using distilled or demineralized water is recommended.

Storage and Labeling: Properly label the diluted solution with the product name, dilution ratio, date of preparation, and any necessary warnings. Store the diluted solution in a labeled, tightly sealed container, away from direct sunlight and heat sources.

Remember to always consult the product label and any accompanying safety data sheets (SDS) for specific instructions and recommendations provided by the manufacturer.

If the recent outbreak of the Langya Virus in China spreads, will Bacoban for Aerospace be effective against it or will it help to reduce its spread?

First we had Covid, now we have Monkeypox, next may be Langya henipavirus (LayV) as it is a new Zoonotic type of virus which is the same type as Covid and has so far infected dozens of people in Chuzhou in the eastern part of China. Zoonotic type of viruses are relatively easy to destroy when out of the body. Using Bacoban for Aerospace inside your aircraft will certainly reduce the risks of contamination by touch in the confined spaces of the aircraft cabin, various high risk touch points such as lavatories, door handles, galleys, rest rooms, overhead lockers etc. Bacoban for Aerospace is effective against all Zoonotic types of viruses.

What does log reduction mean when you talk about disinfectant effectiveness?

Companies and standards use log reductions to prove efficacy of products against a variety of bacteria, fungi and viruses. It is vital that the log reductions reduce the contaminated area to below 10 particles to ensure protection. While levels of bacteria and viruses vary depending upon locations, regularity of cleaning and surface type, sneezing and coughing releases hundreds of thousands of particles and contaminated areas can carry millions of microbes. A product can kill to:

  • 3-log reducing 10,000 particles to 10 but anything above that level leaves a potential for infection
  • 4-log reducing 100,000 particles to 10
  • 5-log reducing 1,000,000 particles to 10
  • 6-log reducing 10,000,000 particles to 10

Typically, a minimum of 5 log is required to ensure that contaminated areas can be disinfected. Speed of effectiveness and conditions are less important than the kill rate itself as these can be dealt with on site. Nothing is more important than effective kill.

What is the best product to use to clean my aircraft?

The answer to this will depend on a few required outcomes. A cleaner or degreaser will remove any dirt, skydrol, dust or oil on the aircraft, this is often the first stage when cleaning an aircraft underbelly, under wings etc as these areas are usually the worst due to landing / take off when water is thrown up carrying dirt etc onto these areas. Once clean, it is often the case that a cleaner with a polymer or wax is use all over the aircraft. With the polymenrs / waxes, the surface is left with some additional protection. This can be an easy clean surface, added UV protection etc. Most importantly is that these paroducts will leave the surface smooth redusing drag. When drag is reduced, fuel consumption is reduced – fact!
