Vaportek is a family-run business that has been your source for a wide range of innovative and ecologically sensitive air treatment systems since 1979.
Proven Product Uses:
Vaportek's compound is an odor neutralizer. It modifies the olfactory nature of unwanted odors to a point of odor disappearance. When two substances of given concentrations are mixed, the resulting odor may be far less intense than that of separate components. This is the principle behind odor modification, or neutralization, and the basis for Vaportek's odor neutralizing products.
Here's how it works:
When molecules of the several constituents of the Vaportek compound volatilize into air, they react with the odor-producing elements of the odorous molecule. The portion of the molecule that contributes the odor may be aldehyde, amine, diamine, sulfide, lactone, carboxylic acid, ester, cabylamine, ketone or other carbons. These are highly reactive and are neutralized, or made inactive, by the interaction with the ingredients of the Vaportek compound. The Vaportek compound is effective because of its intrinsic wide spectrum of neutralizing activity combined with its high mobility in air and ability to penetrate porous substances such as wallboard, wool, carpeting, cement, insulation and others to permanently neutralize imbedded odors.
