of Aircraft &
Simulators (FFS)

Aircrafts and full-flight simulators are highly sensitive areas for hygenic cleanliness. For perfect disinfection we use the latest technology that outclasses all other existing methods on the market:


• inactivates viruses and kills bacteria,
   fungus and spores in seconds
   i.a. Geobacillus stearothermophilus

• inactivates SARS-CoV-2 virus in 3.5 sec.
• approved for airplanes
the only non corrosive technology
• usable for the entire aircraft including cockpit
• exposure time: only 5 - 7 minutes

• aeration time: only 15 - 20 minutes or shorter
   by using an air scrubber

• leaving no contamined waste at all

Introducing SteraMist®


The Basic Liquid: BiT-Solution

The Binary Ionization Technology (BIT™) is a patented two-step process that activates and ionizes an EPA registered solution of 7.8% hydrogen peroxide. Thanks to the low concentration (under 8%) the BIT™-solution is not classified as a dangerous good. This fact allows the solution being shipped or transported without any restrictions - either in a vehicle, airplane or helicopter.

The Transforming Plasma Arc

The BIT™-solution is being sprayed between two high voltage electrodes generating a cold plasma arc. The resulting chemical process transforms the BIT™-solution into an unique gas-fog with extraordinary power turning 80% of the hydrogen peroxide into hydroxyl radicals. After this process there is only a small amount of max. 2.00% hydrogen peroxide left in the plasma-enhanced gas fog.

The Resulting Gas-Fog with Hydroxyl Radicals

The outcoming gas-fog, or more precisely the ionized hydrogen peroxide iHP™ is highly effective on a microbiological base. It damages pathogenic organisms through oxidation of proteins, carbohydrates, and lipids. This results in immediate cellular disruption and/or dysfunction of any germs, microbes, and viruses including the influenza virus and SARS-CoV-2. All of them are being killed or inactivated in 3 - 15 seconds. (This is a big difference to the well-known traditional vaporized hydrogen peroxide methods, which first have to overcome the catalase formation of the organisms in a time-consuming process.)

The gas texture of the iHP™ containing particles between 0.5 and 3 microns assures that even hard to reach corners and areas are treated, which is an advantage that no other conventional method can offer. So, it covers all the areas that no cleaning rack or UV-Lamp will ever reach.

The Big Advantage: Not Corrosive

With being not corrosive the SteraMist®-System offers an outstanding benefit. The iHP™ does not harm screws, bolts, or any other metal or aluminium part of the aircrafts structure. Also, valuable fabrics, textiles, hard and soft surfaces will not be compromised. There is no need to wipe or rinse the treated surfaces as it leaves no residues!

The Cockpit-Challenge: Accepted!

The disinfection of the sensitive cockpit is the biggest challenge. The Binary Ionization Technology BIT offers the advantages of being tested and approved for the airplanes. It is literally predestined to be applied in the cockpit. It does not harm screens, electronics, switches, sockets, headsets, cables, papers, checklists at all. Again: no wipe, no rinse, no residues. We are the right partner for disinfecting your complete aircraft, giving your customers and complete crew security and safety at the highest possible quality.

If Time Matters

A plasma-enhanced disinfection with the SteraMist®-System is the fastest way. The handheld Surface Unit is a quick 5-second spray per square foot. The contact/drying time of 7 minutes and the short aeration time of 15 - 20 minutes speak for themselves. To ensure short turnaround times of aircrafts, short turnover of surgery theaters, time minimized complete disinfections in bio or chemical laboratories and in countless further categories SteraMist® deliveres effective performance as fast as needed!
