Biocides represent a diverse and highly skilled industry, with specialised and essential products that provide enormous benefits to society, each day, many of which we take for granted.
Where are Biocides used?
Products that are used on hard inanimate surfaces and objects or intact skin to destroy or irreversibly inactivate fungi, bacteria and viruses but not necessarily their spores.
Pest control products
Prevent unwelcome animals (rats, cockroaches) from visiting or make their home in residential buildings, industrial sites and urban areas. Keep foodstuffs from contamination, structural timbers from damage, preventing either great economic loss, fire hazards or vector-born diseases.
