A compound that is toxic to living systems.
Substance that kills living organisms
An additive to coatings that kills plants (e.g., algae, fungus, mildew, mold) growing in or on the surface of the coating.
A biologically active paint and caulk additive designed to keep bacteria from spoiling the paint or caulk during storage, or to keep mildew from growing on the applied paint.
A broad-spectrum poison that kills a wide range of organisms.
Product typically used to kill microorganisms.
A substance or chemical that kills organisms such as mold.
Material or additive added to greatly delay or stop the growth of bacteria. Protects liquid paints, dry coatings and production sites from biodegradation. See Preservative
Biocides are formulations of one or more active substances which can kill or control viruses, bacteria, algae, moulds or yeasts.
a chemical pesticide that kills everything in its path
a chemical substance, such as pesticide s, which can be fungicides , herbicide s, insecticide s, miticide s, or rodenticide s, etc
a chemical substance, such as pesticides , which can be fungicides, herbicides , insecticides , miticides , or rodenticides, etc
A chemical agent, such as a pesticide, that is capable of destroying living organisms.
A chemical that is toxic to microorganisms. Biocides are often used to eliminate bacteria and other singlecell organisms from water.
Any chemical agent that can kill a living organism. For example, pesticides kill insects.
A chemical which kills animals and plants.
An additive that destroys biological contaminants.
A chemical substance (pesticides, herbicides, fungicides etc) capable of killing plants and animals.
A substance which kills living organisms.
General name for any substance that kills or inhibits the growth of microorganisms such as bacteria, molds, slimes, fungi, etc.
A material that has the capacity to kill all forms of life.
Generic name for chemicals that eliminate or reduce microbial activity; those that kill fungi are called fungicides, those that kill bacteria are bactericides. Materials that merely prevent microbial multiplication are known as fungistats or bacteristats.
A chemical agent that destroys living organisms.
A chemical used to kill biological organisms, e.g. chlorine.
A biologically active paint and sealant additive designed to keep bacteria from spoiling the paint or sealant during storage; or to keep fungal / algal contamination from growing on the applied paint film.
A chemical poison used to kill bacteria and small animals and plants. Biocides are commonly used in paint for ships and in piping systems that are constantly exposed to water.
Substance or chemical that kills organisms such as molds.
A physical or chemical agent that is capable of killing microorganisms including Legionella.
A chemical that is designed to control the population of troublesome microbes by killing them.
A chemical additive that kills bacteria. In the oilfield Glutaraldehyde has been used historically although THPS (Tetrakis Hydroxy-methyl Phosphonium Sulphate) is now more common.
An additive used to kill or control bacteria and other organisms. Some corrosion inhibitors have biocidal effects in certain environments. Depending on the biocide, concentration levels of 50 - 250 parts per million (ppm) are typical residuals found in the water phase.
an agent that destroys microorganisms.
a poisonous chemical substance that can kill living organisms
A product that kills any fungus or microbes that may have contaminated diesel fuel.
a chemical agent used to kill microbiological organisms (bacteria or fungi) in MRF. Biocides are registered by the EPA under Federal Insecticide Fungicide and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA) and are known officially as antimicrobial pesticides.
A chemical pesticide that is toxic to a wide range of species.
A chemical agent used to kill organisms responsible for microbiological degradation.
A chemical agent capable of killing organisms responsible for microbial degradation. Biocides are sometimes added to waterborne coatings.
Any substance or medium having the energy to destroy bacteria. Any substance or chemical that kills or inhibits the growth or microorganisms such as fungi, bacteria, molds and slimes.
a chemical that is used to kill selected living organisms; for example pesticides, herbicides, fungicides
A chemical which can kill or inhibit the growth of living organisms such as bacteria, fungi, molds, and slimes. Biocides can be harmful to humans, too. Biocides kill spores of living organisms also, and since spores are the most resistant of all life forms, a biocide may be properly defined as a sterilizing agent.
A biocide is a chemical substance capable of killing different forms of living organisms used in fields such as medicine, agriculture, forestry, and mosquito control.
