Smelleze® Reusable Formaldehyde Smell Absorbent Pouch
Formaldehyde Odor Problems
Formaldehyde, a colorless, pungent-smelling gas, is in widespread industrial use. Furthermore, it is found in a wide variety of products e.g. adhesives, carpets, curtains, cosmetics, dyes, embalming chemicals, explosives, fertilizers, filters, furniture, fiberboard, fuels, intermediate chemicals, insulation, upholstery, laminates, leather, lubricants, paints, papers, plastics, pharmaceuticals, rubber, surface coatings, photographic products, urethane resins, water softening chemicals, cigarette smoke, poorly vented gas appliances, etc. Formaldehyde can be released from many of these products because it vaporizes at room temperature.
Unfortunately, most ventilation systems only recirculate room air and remove large particulate matter such as dirt, dust, and lint. Noxious formaldehyde odors are left free to recirculate in the air you breathe. Over time, they could increase in concentration and result in serious indoor air pollution problems e.g. sick building syndrome. Medical problems that have been associated with formaldehyde exposure include watery eyes, burning sensations in the eyes and throat, nausea, and difficulty in breathing. High concentrations may trigger asthma attacks in people with asthma. There is evidence that some people can develop chemical sensitivity after exposure to formaldehyde. Furthermore, formaldehyde is also known to pose a carcinogenic and mutagenic risk to humans. The health and odor problems associated with formaldehyde could lead to complaints from customers as well as employees and OSHA fines.
The Smelleze® Reusable Formaldehyde Smell Absorbent Pouch was specially developed to adsorb, neutralize, and encapsulate formaldehyde odors on contact. Smelleze® will truly cleanse the air of noxious formaldehyde odors, complement existing ventilation systems, and create a safer environment.
It's No Cover-up
The Smelleze® Reusable Formaldehyde Smell Absorbent Pouch is a natural deodorizer that can be used to eliminate noxious and unpleasant formaldehyde odors instead of merely masking them with fragrances. Smelleze® is negatively charged whereas formaldehyde odors ride on positively charged particles. As a result, Smelleze® draws in formaldehyde odors like a strong magnet. Thereafter, it traps, neutralizes, and encapsulates the odors without smelly cover-ups. The molecular structure of Smelleze® is made up of a lattice structure arranged to form a honeycomb framework of billions of interconnecting channels. This gives Smelleze® an enormous surface area that is larger than several football fields. The latter enables Smelleze® to adsorb phenomenal amounts of formaldehyde odors and work for months.
The Smelleze® Reusable Formaldehyde Smell Absorbent Pouch is non-toxic, safe, non-hazardous, natural, non-scented and non-caustic. It is an ideal environmentally friendly solution for eliminating formaldehyde odors without adding pollutants to the air employees breathe and improving indoor air quality. Smelleze® does not contain chemical additives and is especially beneficial for those suffering from chemical sensitivity.
Smelleze® can be effectively used by all types of industrial, commercial, and medical facilities to eliminate formaldehyde odors. Typical applications include:
- Anatomy Labs
- Autopsy Rooms
- Chemical plants
- Chemical storage areas
- Formaldehyde spills
- Funeral homes
- Furniture Manufacturing
- Health clubs
- Manufacturing Facilities
- Medical Offices
- Nursing homes
- Photographic Processing Areas
- Shipping companies
- Any other area with formaldehyde odor problems.
For a breath of fresh air, simply remove the plastic cover, place Smelleze® pouches in the area to treated, and smell the difference. Use one or more pouches for every 150-300 square foot area depending on the size you are using. This product will function most efficiently in an enclosed area with good air circulation. To obtain the best results, remove the odor sources (e.g. open containers and spills) and clean the affected area prior to treating with Smelleze®. For extra effectiveness, this product may be used in conjunction with Smelleze® Formaldehyde Absorbent Granules.
