BPI-TS1.5 Technical Specifications

Active Components

2-[(3-Dodecanamidopropyl)dimethylaminio]acetate (concentrate: 150,000ppm, RTU: 15,000ppm)

5-chloro-2-(2,4-dichlorophenoxy)phenol (triclosan) (concentrate: 15,000ppm, RTU: 1500ppm)

6-methyl-2H-1-benzopyran-2-one (concentrate: 5000ppm, RTU: 500ppm)


Concentrate: Dilute with fresh water at 10:1 for high risk areas or at 30:1 for low risk areas. Spray onto surface or non-abrasive cleaning cloth and spread evenly around the surface. If cleaning the outside of electronic equipment, spray onto cloth first to avoid seeping into the equipment.


Ready-To-Use (RTU): Ready to use as-is, may be diluted with water 1:1 or 2:1 for low traffic, low risk areas. Spray onto surface or non-abrasive cleaning cloth and spread evenly around the surface. If cleaning the outside of electronic equipment, spray onto cloth first to avoid seeping into the equipment.



Keep out of reach of children. Do not spray onto food.


V-Shield Surface Sanitiser (primary active: BPI-TS1.5) is an alcohol-free, ammonia-free, water-based highly effective sanitisier designed specifically to be safe and non-abrasive for surfaces sensitive to damage from many other commercial cleaners. This sanitiser is able to be used on painted surfaces, glass, plastics, the exterior of electronic equipment and any other surfaces and finishes which may be at risk of being damaged by sanitisers such as ethanol/alcohol or bleaches.


V-Shield Surface Sanitiser contains BPI-TS1.5 (base formlation), consisting of three primary active sanitising compounds, conferring a broad range of activity against germs. These include 2-[(3-Dodecanamidopropyl)dimethylaminio]acetate (a quaternary ammonium disinfectant compound made from the oil of coconuts), 5-chloro-2-(2,4-dichlorophenoxy)phenol (triclosan), and 6-methyl-2H-1-benzopyran-2-one (derivative of bactericidal compounds from various berries).



For regular surfaces: Dilute according to instructions on package, for concentrate dilute 10:1 (for high-risk areas, 10 parts water, 1 part sanitiser) or up to 30:1 (for low risk areas, 30 parts water, 1 part sanitiser), and for ready-to-use either use undiluted (equivalent to 10:1 dilution) or dilute maximum 2:1 (1 part water, 1 part sanitiser). Spray directly onto the surface or onto a non-abrasive cloth and rub into surface until dry, making sure to cover surface thoroughly to ensure full contact area. If sprayed onto food preparation surfaces, make sure to dry thoroughly before preparing food, and do not spray directly onto food. This is a foaming sanitiser, which will assist to maximise contact area, and foam will subside after being evenly spread.


For sensitive surfaces/equipment: Follow directions as above, but apply solution to cleaning cloth rather than directly to surface to ensure that the solution does not seep into any interior part of the equipment, to avoid damage to electronics etc. This sort of surface includes sensitive plastics, chairs/armrests, buttons/bezels, printed surfaces including artwork and decals, screens/displays, painted metals/plastics, keypads/keyboards, various solvent-sensitive finishes etc.

Test Results

Our primary concentrate formulation (BPI-TS1.5) was tested for activity against the coronavirus Murine Hepatitis Virus (MHV1), the industry gold-standard surrogate for SARS-Cov ( The Log10 reduction of virus titre after 60 seconds achieved was 4.27. By comparison, 70% ethanol has a Log10 reduction of around 3.9 for the same virus and exposure time (Hulkower, Casanova, Rutala, Weber, & Sobsey, 2011). Log10 reduction of 4.27 is equivalent to inactivation of 99.995% of virus as per the equivalence formula % = 100%*(1-(10^-4.27)).

Cleaning solutions based on ethanol, isopropyl alcohol, bleaches (sodium hypochlorite, hydrogen peroxide, ammonia) and turpentine are all effective disinfectants, however are unsuitable for applications on surfaces sensitive to degradation such as some plastics, screens, painted metals and other components commonly present within commercial premises. Many commonly available water-based/aqueous disinfectants which would normally be safe and suitable for these applications such as benzalkonium chloride and chlorhexidine suffer from being almost completely ineffective against coronaviruses (Kampf et. al, 2020). 


However, a 0.05% solution or greater of triclosan has been demonstrated in the literature to have a log10 reduction factor of more than 4.34 (reduction of activity to 1/22,000th) when tested against Murine Hepatitis Virus, the TGA SARS-Cov surrogate (, making it at least as effective as an 80% ethanol solution according to a paper from the Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology (Dellanno, Vega, & Boesenberg, 2009). This result is supported by our results outlined in the section titled ‘Test Results’ above. Furthermore, aqueous triclosan is demonstrably safe for most surfaces, considering it is currently impregnated into various plastics, fabrics, cotton and cosmetic products (Braid, & Wale, 2002; Rodrigues, Teixeira, Oliveira, & Azeredo, 2011; Swofford, 2001; Zhang, Guo, Jin, Yin, & Zhu, 2007). As compared to alcohols and bleaches, aqueous triclosan is safe for appearance, colouration and structural integrity of the materials and coatings. In regards to other pathogens, “Triclosan has demonstrated immediate, persistent, broad-spectrum antimicrobial effectiveness and utility” (Jones, Jampani, Newman, & Lee, 2000). 2-[(3-Dodecanamidopropyl)dimethylaminio]acetate has demonstrated antimicrobial activity alone, but is particularly synergistic when combined with other disinfectants (Krasowska, Biegalska, & Łukaszewicz, 2012), and 6-methyl-2H-1-benzopyran-2-one has demonstrated broad antibacterial activity with the capability to both inhibit growth and destroy pathogenic bacteria (de Souza, Delle Monache, & Smânia, 2005).
