About ClO2

Understanding chlorine dioxide

Physical and chemical properties of chlorine dioxide
  • As a strong oxidizing agent, it is very sensitive to light and temperature and is stable in dark places.
  • It has a boiling point of 11℃ and a melting point of -59.5℃. It is a highly active molecular
    free radical compound that is volatile.
  • It reacts very quickly with organic substances, and in the case of a gaseous state,
    if the concentration in the atmosphere is over 11%, may explode by catalysts of light,
    heat and carbon monoxide gas.
  • At room temperature, gas dissolves in water and hydrates very slowly,
    so it exists in water as a molecule with high energy, and is hydrated at a rate of about 10 million
    times slower than chlorine under neutral conditions.
  • Unlike chlorine, it does not hydrolyze in the range of pH 2-10, and exists as a dissolved gas,
    and has a sterilizing effect even in a wide range of pH.

Advantages of DYC ClO2

DYC Chlorine Dioxide can be widely used not only in living environments but also in all areas where sterilization and disinfection are required due to its strong oxidizing power and eco-friendliness.

DYC Chlorine dioxide radically decomposes odor-causing substances to reduce odor.

DYC chlorine dioxide oxidizes cell membranes of bacteria, enabling target sterilization without generating resistant bacteria.

[Effective against more than 700 bacteria, including food poisoning E. coli (O157), Staphylococcus aureus, Salmonella, Pseudomonas aeruginosa.]

DYC Chlorine Dioxide removes viruses by oxidizing the DNA structure of the virus.

[Excellent effect against various viruses such as H1N1, corona virus, FMD]

DYC Chlorine dioxide oxidizes water-soluble heavy metals insoluble.

Differentiation from other disinfection products

DYC ClO2 has excellent oxidizing power in a wide PH range compared to other sterilization products, and does not generate disinfection by-products.
  • In the case of other sterilization products, environmental damage may occur by generating carcinogenic disinfection by-products such as THMs, HAAs, and HANs.
  • While general chlorine dioxide can be stored for a few days, DYC ClO2 can be maintained for a long period of time for more than 1 year.
