How The Products Work

Traditional chemical cleaners often contain chemicals such as chlorine and caustic soda. These chemicals have a strong positive or negative charge, and react strongly with soiling, forming strong chemical bonds. These highly concentrated chemicals bond to the target surface and oxidation can form as a white, reddish or green/blue crust. Initially the target surface may have a greater shine, but the continued use of the chemical cleaner will eventually etch the surface to the point where it is dull and of lesser tensile strength.

Colloid cleaners are not chemically charged, but promote breaks in surface tension, resulting in a cleaner surface. The TRIPLE 7 colloid chemistries form a short lived unstable emulsion which quickly breaks down, releasing the insoluble organic fats, oils, proteins etc these then separate from the water. The colloidal particles (micelles) reduce the surface tension of water even in a very dilute solution. Each micelle is about one ten-millionth of a centimetre (0.000,000,01 cm) in size. The micelles have a hydrophilic and lipophilic end (i.e. one end of a micelle has an affinity to water and the other to oils and greases).
