active ingredient in the ZeoFresh product
line is zeolite. There are many zeolite products
on the market, but all
zeolites are not the same!
Natural zeolites are formed
from the alteration of volcanic ash.Their physical
structure is arranged in an interconnecting lattice structure. This lattice
structure is arranged to form a honeycomb framework of consistent diameter
diameter of these open channels is what differentiates
each species of natural zeolites and is what gives
rise to their unique properties. Cycletrol's
zeolites adhere to strict specifications that optimize
their performance for the required usage. Within
the open channels are positively-charged ions (cations)
attached and held by the structure's negative charge.
Natural zeolite can perform the following functions
which in turn give rise to a multitude of end uses.
The ability to exchange internal cations for other cations on a basis of ion
selectivity determined by ion and channel diameter.
The ability to reversibly adsorb/desorb water without chemical or physical
change in the zeolite structure.
The abiltiy to selectively adsorb specific gas molecules without any effect
upon the zeolite structure.The material can encompass and control
many times its weight in odors or moisture, and
then can be recharged by exposure to sunlight,
whereupon it releases its "captives" and
is ready for further duty! This ability
to recharge, coupled with the non-toxic, non-chemical
formulation, makes Cycletrol's zeolites some of
the most environmentally friendly products on earth!
Mildew is an organism that thrives in areas of excess moisture, and leaves
a stale, undesireable odor. ZeoFresh products remove the
moisture, and the mildew dissappears!
