Disinfection and Sterilization:
Effective against bacteria, spores, fungi, and viruses, even when organized in biofilms. The high oxidation potential of peroxides and ozone, combined with the protein denaturation ability of nitric acids, leads to the perforation of protective cell membranes, acidification of biofilm pH values, partial oxidation of organic molecules (peptides, lipids), structural unfolding, and damage to RNA and DNA. Nitric acid can also nitrate aromatic amino acids like tyrosine and tryptophan. The synergistic effect of oxidation (ozone and peroxides) and denaturation enhances the overall disinfection capabilities of the mixture. Process control, such as temperature and dew point, plays a crucial role when a thin film of active substances condenses on the object to be sterilized.
Effective in removing many volatile organic components with unpleasant odors from the air. However, it’s essential to be aware that partial oxidation may lead to potentially harmful byproducts, which should either be fully oxidized or absorbed by filters. An ideal approach is to capture the VOCs on a porous catalytically active adsorbent and subsequently degrade them using the Mediplas output.
Swiftly fades organic colors, such as traces of tomato or coffee, cigarette condensate, etc. Moderate humidity can expedite the bleaching process.
