The process involves producing the Hydrogen Peroxide Vapour in a generator and recirculating this
through the enclosure being decontaminated. The air will reach saturation or dew point, at which point the air
cannot carry any more Hydrogen Peroxide Vapour so it lays down a thin layer, ≈5μm, of micro-condensation
on the surfaces. It is this Hydrogen Peroxide condensate which kills the micro-organisms.
The Hydrogen Peroxide Vapour is then removed either via the building or equipment extract system, or a
catalytic filter which breaks it down into water and oxygen, or a combination of both.
Hydrogen Peroxide is an oxidiser and this can have a detrimental effect on some materials. This document
aims to give advice to people selecting materials which will be exposed to Hydrogen Peroxide Vapour.
The quick links below will direct you to the specific materials you are interested in and the results associated
with the testing.
