How does chlorine dioxide (Cl02) work? 

  • Like ozone and chlorine, chlorine dioxide is an oxidizing biocide and not a metabolic toxin. This means that chlorine dioxide kills microorganisms by disruption of the transport of nutrients across the cell wall, not by disruption of a metabolic process. READ MORE

  • The residue from the pathogenic reaction is not a toxic halogen like chlorine and pathogenic mutation cannot occur, forcing ever increasing dosages in order to obtain a like kill.

  • DoxyKlor products are colloidal suspensions of chlorine dioxide in deionized water, using the pure ingredients, which positively affects consistent delivery, safety & efficacy.

Is Cl02 a Colloid? What is a colloid? 

  • Yes. DoxyKlor is a colloid of CL02 gas in water, meaning it does not blend with the water, but remains a separate entity suspended in the water.

  • A colloid is a mixture that is between a chemical solution and a suspension. A suspension will separate out, a colloid will not. Chlorine dioxide is an unusual colloid since it is a gas bubble in a liquid and not an emulsion (liquid in liquid). 

  • The integrity and power of a colloidal system is a factor of the interplay among size and charge. CL02 will remain in suspension as long as no disruptive influence intrudes, such as a disruptive charge or physical force. 

Why is DoxyKlor's gas capture technology? 

  • DoxyKlor's proprietary gas capture technology not only suspends CL02 gas in water, but also results in maximum delivery to the target surface. 

  • With DoxyKlor, CL02 molecules suspend within water droplets hit the target surface where it precipitates out and dwells on the surface first, before evaporating into the air

Where is chlorine dioxide (Cl02) used? 

  • Medical & hospital applications for general surface cleaning, burn-unit disinfection, ocular lens sterilization & endoscope disinfection.

  • Dental applications such as general surface sterilization. 

  • Veterinary applications for general surface sterilization, topical wound disinfection, pet ear-cleaning products, milking machine & teat treatments.

  • Removal of toxic chemicals like pharmaceuticals, phenols & mercaptans.

  • Used across the globe for decades as a water purification agent in municipal water & wastewater applications.

  • Preferred agent for disinfecting Anthrax-contaminated federal buildings. 

  • Restaurants, large office buildings, community bathrooms, public transportation, and much more.

How is DoxyKlor eco-friendly?

  • DoxyKlor contains no VOCs and does not create toxic byproducts.

  • Chlorine dioxide is bee-friendly in all but the highest dosages. READ MORE. According to some studies, it may even be beneficial.

  • Chlorine dioxide is non-persistent in soil, air or water. 

  • By virtue of its chemical nature and microbial kill mechanisms, DoxyKlor does not contribute to pathogen mutation, as do other antibiotics and antimicrobial agents.  

  • Chlorine dioxide is a size-selective anti-microbial that leaves no residue, it is not harmful to wildlife.

  • Chlorine dioxide was chosen, several decades ago, to replace harsh, toxic chemicals that were previously used in municipal water treatment.

  • NOTE: Chlorine dioxide may cause harm to some species of fish and marine invertebrates, thus DoxyKlor should never be dumped into waterways or storm drains. The flip side of marine invertebrate toxicity is applications of chlorine dioxide (controlled so as not to contact or impact waterways, storm drains & bodies of water) are used as a mitigation strategy for invasive-species mussels.
