What are the properties of Chlorine Dioxide (ClO2)?
Chlorine dioxide is more chemically selective than bleaches, ozone, or peroxides. This means that it destroys unwanted microbes without burning or corroding surfaces.
Chlorine dioxide is a neutral molecule. This allows it to seamlessly infiltrate growths (such as biofilm) and destroy the inner-lying molds and spores.
Chlorine dioxide disinfects via oxidation. The chlorine dioxide molecule has an oxidation number 2½ times higher than bleach, ozone, and peroxide, which means that lower levels of ClO2 can accomplish the same disinfection applications as higher levels of these conventional chemicals.
Due to chlorine dioxide’s unique method of pathogen inactivation, viruses, bacteria, molds, and spores are unable to build up a tolerance to the ClO2 molecule.
Chlorine dioxide has a high material compatibility and leaves no residual on hard, non-porous surfaces.
How is it Applied?
Activated product may be applied by a fine mist sprayer, fogger or wiped etc. to surfaces being disinfected. At Cadillac of Lake Lanier we are cleaning our dealership and all vehicles multiple times a day.
How long before a customer can enter the vehicle once applied?
After application and dwell time surface any surface residual may be wiped and let dry. Let vehicle air out allowing chlorine-like smell is no longer present. Typically takes a few minutes time before reentering.
How often do you recommend reapplication?
Between users and if same occupant as often as you would like.
How do you know the formula is safe?
Formula is EPA certified safe when used accordingly
What is the main antibacterial product that is used?
Is the product EPA approved or certified?
Product is EPA Registered. No. 74986-4
What Specific Bacteria & Viruses Does it protect against?
CLO2BBER is registered with the Environmental Protection Agency as a pesticide and falls within the lowest toxicity categories. This product is commonly used for small scale hard surface disinfection and deodorization. The ClO2BBER disinfectant is also approved by the U.S. EPA for use against Covid-19. This product can be used to disinfect any hard, non-porous surface.
