Problems Solved
Chlorinated oxidizers are not desired. Looking for a greener and easier to handle oxidizing agent
Scale formation and white precipitation caused by calcium hypochlorites and solid form oxidizers
Oxidizer label required with the use of bleach in formulations
Limited to no control over etching rate in the production of electronics and microelectronics
Pool turns dark or green due to algae bloom
High level of free and combined chlorine in pool and spa applications
Frequent cleaning or replacement of paper mill felts is required or of felts in paper mills
Insufficient bleaching in denture cleansers, textiles, and cleaning applications
