D/2 Biological Solution

 

 

D/2 Biological Solution is a biodegradable, easy-to-use liquid that removes stains from mold, algae, mildew, lichens and air pollutants. It is effective on marble, granite, limestone, brownstone, travertine, masonry, terra cotta, concrete, stucco, wood, and other architectural surfaces including monuments, sculpture and headstones. A contact time of only 10 to 15 minutes, followed by scrubbing with a soft nylon or natural bristle brush, will loosen most biological and air pollutant staining.

• Fast acting: 10 to 15 minutes contact time for great results
• Biodegradable
• Contains no acids, salts or chlorine
• pH neutral
• Will not etch metals or glass
• Safer to use around plants


1. FEATURES & BENEFITS

• Fast acting: 10 to 15 minutes contact time for great results
• Biodegradable
• Contains no acids, salts or chlorine
• pH neutral
• Will not etch metals or glass
• Safer to use around plants
• Non-hazardous material; requires no special handling or protection
• Use at full strength; no in-field mixing required
• Shelf life of 5 years

2. APPLICATION PROCEDURES

Always do a spot test sample before proceeding with project. D/2 works best when air and surface temperatures are 7.5 °C (45 °F) or above. Use D/2 undiluted for best results. In the event of excessive plant exposure, rinse all plants and water in all planted ground areas.

3. IMMEDIATE RESULTS METHOD

1. Apply D/2 Biological Solution with a brush, roller, hand-pump sprayer (garden-style pump sprayer) or low-pressure power sprayer.
2. Allow undiluted D/2 to remain on the surface for 10 to 15 minutes.
3. Apply additional D/2 as necessary to maintain a wet surface.
4. Scrub with soft nylon or natural bristle brush. DO NOT USE METAL BRUSH.
5. Lightly mist water and continue scrubbing.
6. Rinse thoroughly with clean, potable water.

4. NO SCRUB - NO RINSE METHOD

1. Apply D/2 Biological Solution with a brush or pump sprayer, to a dry surface. Do not pre-wet the surface
2. Allow to dry. Repeat if there are heavy biological stains.

D/2 works with the elements and results occur within one week to one month, depending on severity of growth and weather conditions. The surface will become cleaner over time as the subsurface biological stains release.

5. SAFETY INFORMATION

D/2 Biological Solutions is non-mutagenic, and contains no carcinogenic compounds as defined by NTP, IARC, or OSHA. It is considered essentially non-toxic by swallowing, as it has an oral  D50 of 2.0 g/kg (0.07 oz/2.2 lb) of body weight. No special ventilation is required during use.

6. PACKAGING AND COVERAGE

D/2 Biological Solutions is available in 3.78 L (1 US gallon) and 18.9 L (5 US gallon) containers, or in 208.2 L (55 US gallon) drums. The area that can be treated with 1 L (0.26 US gallon) of D/2 will vary considerably as a function of the nature and extent of biological deposits, as well as the physical characteristics of the surface. Typical coverage to remove medium deposits will vary from 6.0 m2/L (65 ft2/0.26 US gallon) to 8.4 m2/L (90 ft2/0.26 US gallon).
