Frequently Asked Questions

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. Further reading:

Is Bacoban for Aerospace effective if applied to soft furnishings or fabrics?

Yes, Bacoban for Aerospace has been tested in a laboratory according to EN ISO 20743:2021 and found to have an activity of log 3+,  strong anti bacterial properties. The test certificate can be downloaded HERE.

I have seen adverts for Bacoban WB which is a concentrate and cheaper than Bacoban DL. Can I use Bacoban WB to disinfect or clean the inside surfaces of my aircraft?

No, Bacoban WB has a very short shelf life once mixed with water and must be used withing an hour. It was developed for use in industrial / agricultural settings where extremely large areas are treated, slightly different grades of the ingredients were used to reduce the cost. Using Bacoban WB inside an aircraft will most likely cause discolouration of some types of surfaces. Alway use Bacoban DL inside aircraft, this will ensure that no surfaces are discoloured and operators working in the aircraft do not use product which has passed its shelf life.

Which Aircraft manufacturers have approved Bacoban for use onboard their aircraft?

Most of the major aircraft or airframe manufacturers have approved Bacoban now, namely Boeing, Airbus, Dassault Falcon, Bombardier, Textron and Embraer. More may have approved the use by now.

Is Bacoban for Aerospace effective against Monkeypox virus infection?

Human monkeypox or MPX, is a zoonotic type viral disease caused by the Monkeypox virus MPXV. The visual presentation is similar to that of the well known smallpox. The human monkeypox caused outbreaks in the tropical rainforest regions of Central and West Africa. It is not seen as a notifiable disease at the EU/EEA level.

The identification in May 2022 of clusters of monkeypox cases in several non-endemic countries with no direct travel links to an endemic area is atypical. Further investigations are underway to determine the likely source of infection and limit further onward spread. As the source of this outbreak is being investigated, it is important to look at all possible modes of transmission in order to safeguard public health.

Monkeypox virus is an enveloped virus that has an outer envelope. It belongs to the Orthopoxvirus genus of the Poxviridae family. The Orthopoxvirus genus also includes Cowpox virus, Vaccinia virus, Variola virus and several other animal-related, types.


The ability of a disinfectant to kill COVID-19 virus is related to the chemical make-up of both the virus and the disinfectant. Disinfectants work by chemically inactivating viruses. The lipid envelope that surrounds the monkeypox virus and all other enveloped viruses is easily attacked or disrupted by the disinfectant and this occurs regardless of the structure of the proteins on the surface of the viruses. The general mode of action of how a disinfectant attacks an enveloped virus is well known.


Monkeypox is transmitted to humans through contact with an infected animal or human, or with material contaminated with the virus. The virus enters the body through broken skin, the respiratory tract or the mucous membranes. The incubation period is typically around 10 days, but can range from 5 to 21 days.

The principal mode of transmission is thought to be direct contact with MPX lesions or with the patient’s belongings that have been in contact with the lesions. Therefore, caregivers and relatives should avoid touching skin lesions with bare hands, wear disposable gloves or similar ppe, and observe strict hand hygiene and washing. It is also reported that human-to-human transmission can result from close contact with respiratory secretions, skin lesions of an infected person or recently contaminated objects. The importance of hand hygiene by using soap and water or alcohol-based sanitizer should be emphasized.


Contaminated surfaces should be cleaned and disinfected. Standard household cleaning/disinfectants may be used in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions.

Dishes and other eating utensils should not be shared. It is not necessary for the infected person to use separate utensils if properly washed. Soiled dishes and eating utensils should be washed in a dishwasher or by hand with warm water and soap.

Hand hygiene (i.e., hand washing with soap and water or use of an alcohol-based hand rub) should be performed by infected persons and household contacts after touching lesion material, clothing, linens, or environmental surfaces that may have had contact with lesion material.

Laundry (e.g., bedding, towels, clothing) may be washed in a standard washing machine with warm water and detergent; bleach may be added but is not necessary. Care should be used when handling soiled laundry to avoid direct contact with contaminated material. Soiled laundry should not be shaken or otherwise handled in a manner that may disperse infectious particles.

Preventative measures

You can continue to use Bacoban for Aerospace with full confidence against the transmission of the Monkeypox virus, Bacoban for Aerospace has been tested and found effective against enveloped types of viruses.


Is Bacoban effective against the Marburg Virus?

The Marburg Virus, closely related to Ebola. This has currently been only in Ghana and is typically passes from fruit bats to humans. The WHO is keeping an eye on this virus that has a death rate between 23-90% of affected people. Viruses have certainly been on everyone’s mind from COVID-19, monkeypox and now Marburg. As the Marburg virus is classed as an enveloped virus, Bacoban is effective in destroying it when outside the body on surfaces.

Your website says that Bacoban for Aerospace lasts for us to 10 days on surfaces. Why is this important?

If you use a standard disinfectant to disinfect a surface, any traces of viruses and bacteria will be destroyed. The problem is that after 10 minutes, someone with a virus can contaminate the surface, the next person to come along and touch this surface will run the risk of becoming contaminated. If Bacoban for Aerospace was used to clean and disinfect this surface initially, the initial contamination would not occur as the residual effect of the Bacoban for Aerospace will destroy the virus or bacteria therefore preventing the spread. Although Bacoban for Aerospace will protect surfaces for up to 10 days, we recommend regular cleaning and re-application as the product can be removed.

What is the difference between Bacoban DL and Bacoban WB?

Bacoban WB is used as an economical product to mix (supplied as a concentrate) and use to disinfect surfaces. The problem with this version is that it HAS to be used the same day, it CANNOT be kept overnight to be used the next day. It does not remain stable for longer periods. Bacoban WB is not used inside aircraft as some staining and discolouration has been known to have occured on sensitive surfaces. Bacoban DL on the other hand is supplied ready to use, it has a 2 year shelf life when mixed, it does not discolour or stain sensitive surfaces. Bacoban DL is the ONLY type of Bacoban that should be used inside an aircraft. Other suppliers (who do not have aviation knowledge) will suggest Bacoban WB, if you choose to use this version, it is at your risk.

Is Bacoban patented?

How do you use Bacoban?

Heavily soiled areas or surfaces must be pre-cleaned with a suitable degreaser of cleaner. Ensure that the surface is fairly dry after cleaning. Bacoban can then simply be sprayed onto the surface and wiped with a clean cloth or microfiber. Do not wipe totally dry.

How do you fog with Bacoban?

Select a suitable fogging / nebulising machine. Different machines will be used in different ways. There is one point however which is important, the optimum droplet size which must be between 20 and 30 microns. The finer the droplets, the better the coverage is. Personal protective equipment (PPE), follow the instructions on product labels. Ask your safety-clothing supplier to help you get the right PPE. Respiratory protective equipment (RPE) is needed. Make sure respirators have an Assigned Protection Factor (APF) of 10 or more, and are CE marked. Seek advice from your RPE supplier. Replace RPE filters as recommended by the supplier. Throw away disposable RPE after one use. Make sure you know how to check that RPE fits correctly. Keep RPE on until you have left the work area. Wear protective gloves – single-use nitrile gloves are acceptable. If you must use latex gloves, use only ‘low-protein, powder-free’ gloves. Throw away single-use gloves every time you take them off. Use protective goggles to protect eyes. Wear a hooded coverall – cotton or porous polypropylene is probably the best material. Skin creams are important for skin protection and help in washing contamination from the skin. These are not ‘barrier creams’. After work creams help to replace skin oils.
