Science of Ozone
What is ozone?
Ozone is a gas. And it’s made of just one thing: oxygen. The Ozone molecule is composed of three atoms of oxygen. Two atoms of oxygen form the basic oxygen molecule–the oxygen we breathe that is essential to life. The third oxygen atom can detach from the ozone molecule, and re-attach to molecules of other substances, thereby altering their chemical composition.
How does ozone sanitize?
The ozone molecule, composed of three atoms of oxygen, is reactive. The third oxygen atom detaches from the ozone molecule, and re-attaches to molecules of other substances, like bacteria and viruses and alters their structure, thereby killing them. The remaining two atoms remain oxygen. Unlike liquid sanitizers, the ZONO generates ozone that penetrates into padding and fabric where bacteria and viruses live, and does not damage or impact the integrity of the fabric.
