What is Metazene®?
Most SurcoTech™ odor control products contain Metazene® odor neutralizer additive. Metazene® actually neutralizes odors at the MOLECULAR level without masking.
The simplified illustration above shows how Metazene® works to neutralize airborne odors:
1. Electro-negative (-) malodor molecules and electro-positive (+) Metazene® molecules are suspended in ambient air.
2. Metazene® molecules attach to the malodor molecules forming a “heavier” molecule (with a higher vapor pressure.
3. Metazene® forms a homo-polymer lattice, effectively “sealing” and thus neutralizing the malodor.
4. The now heavier molecule slowly sinks to the floor. The malodor continues to be bound by the homo-polymer lattice.
5. The molecule evaporates over a period of days, unable to reenter the ambient air.
