The best cleaning products also happen to be green clean products.
In the past, the best cleaning products were tough on dirt but also tough on the environment. As people became interested in cleaning green, several green clean products entered the market. But removing the harmful chemicals also reduced the effectiveness of the green clean products.
Fortunately, advanced nanotechnology has produced the uniquely formulated Bio100. It is the one green cleaner that annihilates dirt and grease while protecting the enviroment. It consists of bio-based ingredients that form a highly concentrated colloidal cleaner and degreaser that can tackle any cleaning challenge – from stains on delicate fabrics to thick oil and grease on concrete. In addition, it is non-caustic, biodegradable, non-hazardous, and requires less water to clean.
One gallon of Bio100 makes 16 gallons of medium purpose cleaner that will remove hydrocarbon soils such as petroleum on products, fats, oils, and greases. Instead of using several different cleaners for various purposes, use one mean, green cleaner – Bio100.
Use Bio100 for Floors, Carpets, Walls, Windows, Mirrors, Laundry, Dishes, Tile, Fabrics, Wood, Paint, Stainless Steel, Stone, Cement, Appliances and Machinery.
What is Colloidal Chemistry Technology?
Bio-100 and bioremediation technology comes from a type of advanced materials science known as colloidal chemistry. Renewable, food grade ingredients are processed to form a nano-sized particle called a micelle. The micelle’s small particle size (1-4 nanometers), combined with its extremely high surface area to volume ratio enable it to penetrate complex carbon molecules and emulsify organic matter. Micelles are activated when mixed with sufficient amount of water such that each micelle is then completely surrounded by a thin layer of water molecules. The outer hydrophilic shell aggressively searches for and bonds with water molecules, making them hyper-mobile.
The head of the micelle is hydrophilic, meaning it likes water, while the interior portion is hydrophobic, meaning it avoids water. This provides a way to dissolve molecules that do not like water, in water.
How Do Colloidal Micelles Work? Colloidal micelles work to breakdown long chain hydrocarbon bonds in fats, oils, and grease and hold them in suspension when mixed with water. Individual colloidal micelles, at the nano-scale, repel each other like opposing magnets while attracting solid particles and breaking down hydrocarbon bonds into smaller molecules and/or atoms. Once solid particles have attached themselves to the colloidal micelle, the micelle holds them in suspension, preventing re-soiling from occurring and safely allowing FOG to be permanently dissolved in water. The wash off is completely bio- degraded and becomes soil constituents such as nitrate, dissolved oxygen, carbon dioxide, biomass and water. Mixed together in a very diluted water solution, colloids drastically reduce surface tension and work as a dispersing agent that carry other active ingredients more effectively than common surfactants. Advantages of Using Colloidal Micelles, a Clean Technology In practice, colloidal micelles have a number of sharp advantages over ordinary formulations. Most cleaning and bioremediation products contain just surfactants and emulsifiers which may do a good job of lifting fats- oils-greases (FOG), but leave hazardous hydro-carbons intact to run off and continue to contaminate. Also, the quick degradation of organic waste causes a significant reduction of offensive odor caused by the naturally slow process of decay, and reduced organic residue will cause a diminution in population of disease carrying insects. Most importantly, when used with specific natural, non-ionic surfactants, emulsifiers, FOG dissolving and sequestering agents, the colloidal micelles work together to produce an extremely powerful, effective, and affordable solution that requires no expensive OSHA or safety training. The formulated ingredients are protected as a proprietary trade secret pursuant to Occupational Safety and Health Agency (OSHA) Standard CFR-1910 1200. Because it contains no ingredients considered hazardous by OSHA, it is exempt from the requirement of listing ingredients on the label. The ingredient list has been reviewed by the US EPA. The chemical family from which the ingredients are derived includes: • Alkanolamines • Amino acids • Corn oil • Non-ionic surfactants • Plant based fatty acids • Organic alcohol in a base of colloidal micelles The various blends contain extracts from plants such as cactus, coconuts, corn, grain, grass, potatoes, rice, soy, trees, minute amounts of natural or nonionic surfactants and pure water.
When they work, non-toxic and sustainable products are preferred by both industrial customers and end consumers. Toxicity is becoming increasingly important and health and safety concerns have mainstreamed. The limitation has been restricting or eliminating toxic ingredients but still getting the job done. Bio-100 does not contain:
* Petroleum distillates
* Glycol ethers
* Terpenes f Synthetics
* Builders and reagents
* Caustics f Aldehydes
To informed consumers, safely avoiding this list of known toxins is at least as important as what an effective product does in fact contain.
