Safer on materials than VPHP, bleach, ozone, and liquid chlorine dioxide solutions
- Non-flammable at use concentrations.
- Non-explosive at use concentrations, no need for Damage Limiting Construction (DLC). Chlorine dioxide can become explosive at concentrations of 10% in air, however normal use concentrations are 0.04%, approximately 250 times less.
- Residue free process
Chlorine dioxide is a true gas at ambient temperature:
- Complete distribution as chlorine dioxide is governed by gas laws
- No condensation, quick aeration
Accurate concentration monitoring:
- Due to its yellow-green color, chlorine dioxide can be accurately measured with a spectrophotometer
- Other agents, such as VPHP, cannot be accurately monitored as concentration is not uniform throughout area due to condensation and distribution gradients
- The chlorine dioxide gas decontamination process can be easily scaled up to volumes of millions of cubic feet.
- Effective at low concentrations
- Effective over wide temperature range
- Effective under ambient or vacuum pressures
- Effective against a wide range of organisms
