A new standard
in disinfectants & military grade decontaminants
Proven, tested, and backed by studies and real world application, D7’s Broad Spectrum Chemical Detoxification and Biocidal Activity – is quickly becoming a new standard for use across the globe.
Kills Chemical/Biological Warfare Agents, Fentanyl, Pathogens from blood/body fluids, carcinogens, and more.
Historical decontamination formulations for CBW agents were toxic and/or highly corrosive.
To develop a rapid, effective, and safe decontamination technology for mitigating exposure from CBW agents.
Rapid deployment, Rapid destruction of CBW agents, Common Formulation for all CBW agents, together with Low Toxicity and corrosivity.
In early FY03 the Department of Defense’s (DoD) Joint Service Family of Decon Systems (JSFDS) Program, validated DF-200 (D7) as the capability that met the rigorous requirements of Central Command’s Urgent Need Statement for a safer decontaminant.
Why D7 DF-200?
D7 DF-200 was purposely formulated, engineered and field tested to work in the most challenging environments. It is a powerful and effective multi-purpose decontaminant, disinfectant, cleaner, and deodorizer.
D7 DF-200 can neutralize CBW agents, toxic industrial chemicals (TICs), and toxic industrial materials (TIMs), as well as remove Alpha and Beta particles from radiological agents from personnel, personal protective equipment (PPE), sensitive equipment, vehicles, and critical infrastructure. While all the time being safe enough to use as a laundry detergent.
For over 26 years, D7 has performed in the most challenging environments, from the US Army’s Operation Environmental Clean-up in Mosul, Iraq to destroying anthrax in the US Senate. From these uses, D7 is renowned for its effectiveness in neutralizing toxic threats and for its ability to adhere to vertical, overhead, horizontal, and rolled edge surfaces.
Our efficacy is verified by real-world uses and test results from multiple independent labs and academia. Notable uses include: Decontamination of the Hart Senate Building, US Post Office in Washington DC, and NBC Studio offices in New York City following 9/11 Anthrax attacks; Operation Iraqi Freedom in Mosul, Iraq to mitigate 11,500 gallons of organophosphates, pesticides, and insecticides dumped in the streets; Remediate and restore a Dallas, TX area apartment complex where Ebola was discovered; Remediate and restore the Superdome in New Orleans, LA after Hurricane Katrina; Remediate facilities after Hurricane Harvey; Remediate sidewalks and public spaces after the Boston Marathon Bombing; and Remediate public spaces after the UK Novichok poisonings.

D7 is a patented, anti-microbial disinfectant, anti-bacterial, and chemical cleaner. A multi-part aqueous solution including hydrogen peroxide and an advanced four-chain quaternary ammonia formulation.
D7 is a Bactericidal and Broad-spectrum disinfectant that delivers complete inactivation of Staphylococcus aureus (ATCC 6538), Salmonella enterica (ATCC 10708), Pseudomonas aeruginosa (ATCC 15442). Unlike alternate disinfectants, D7 chemically cleaves the spore wall then neutralizes the mycotoxin inside. It 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.
- D7 is effective in extreme temperature ranges.
- Low-Corrosivity, water-soluble, colorfast, 0 VOC’s .
- D7 can be rapidly deployed and applied as a foam, liquid, mist, or spray.
- Once blended, the solution becomes a ‘hunter’ for bacteria.
- D7 has a final pH 9.6-9.8 (with optional booster)
- D7 is an effective disinfectant against Staphylococcus aureus, Salmonella enterica, and Pseudomonas aeruginosa.
- Contains no abrasives so it won’t scratch surfaces.
Safe and More Effective than Bleach
Advantages of D7
- Environmentally friendly, leaves no additional environmental load
- No hazmat considerations for storage or transportation
- Deploys as a compressed air foam, affording numerous advantages such as longer dwell time, a visual indicator of coverage, and it can adhere to horizontal & vertical services
- Components are pre-portioned to avoid mixing errors Versatile formula – can be fogged, foamed, sprayed, misted, mopped, or even used as a laundry solution
Disadvantages of bleach!
- Solutions dry out quickly before adequate contact time is achieved to neutralize contaminants – bleach requires
continuous rewetting to ensure effective contact time
- Chlorine concentrations in bleach solutions decrease
rapidly, creating a less effective solution
- Bleach solutions cannot adhere to vertical surfaces
- Most testing is conducted at 5-10% dilution ratios but
mixture percentages are often estimated in the field, often times resulting in ineffective, low-percentage
D7 Provides Multimodal Efficacy
Most products rely upon one mechanism to defeat pathogenic targets. D7 uses several different mechanisms:
● Oxidation via hydrogen peroxide
● Oxidation via peracetic acid
● Oxidation via other activated oxygen species (Percarbonates)
● Membrane disruption and subsequent lysis using quaternary amines
● Protein denaturation using safe solvents
● Chemical attack using strong nucleophiles promoted by micellar catalysis
● Vigorously attacks biofilms
● Residual sanitization is postulated
● Detergency action softens up hard to remove water-resistant films
D7 is not simply another Quat or disinfectant, it is a decontamination system
Skinning The Cat
In the area of decontamination, many options work:
● Alcohol and fortified alcohol (CaviCide)
● Bleach and other chlorinated options (STB, Calcium Hypochlorite)
● Quats, Peracetic Acid, Hydrogen peroxide
● Other chemically fortified soaps
D7 brings all of these, but the toxic/corrosive bleaches to the decontamination arena and that’s a good thing!
