pH is a measure of hydrogen ion concentration or in layman terms, a measure of the acidity or alkalinity of a solution. BANO embodies a pH value of 12.5 which is extremely high in alkalinity. Therefore, it has disinfectant, antiseptic and sterilizing properties. Its antimicrobial potential is clinically proven effective against food toxins and free-floating bacteria.
BANO is an odourless and colourless water-based sanitizer that is 100% biodegradable, non-caustic, non-hazardous, non-corrosive, non-flammable and non-explosive. Since it has zero COD (Chemical Oxygen Demand) and BOD (Biochemical Oxygen Demand), it does not cause underground and water pollution which simplifies effluent treatment process and greatly reduces environmental measurement cost.
BANO is non-toxic and contains no alcohol which is completely safe for babies or pets to even lick the floor, carpet, sofa, etc. after cleaning as it contains no synthetic chemical or surfactant substances.
Its surfactant cleaning properties suspends contaminants like oil, fats and protein in the aqueous phase which reduces the cleaning time required by 50% because it is easier to rinse after. This feature is similar to the soap effect.
The surface-active agents or surfactant cleaning properties of BANO reduces the interfacial tension between the solution and the contaminants which allows easy penetration and displacement from the surface of the object, leading cleaning activity to an increase of 10% efficiency.
BANO has a negative ORP value of -500mV which indicates its high tendency to reduce compounds, meaning it has anti-oxidation properties that are valuable for metals that are prone to rust (Anti-Rusting) and corrode (Anti-Corrosion).
BANO consists of a very high number of negative (-) ions as a result of the electrolysis process and works in such a way that it absorbs and envelops the positive (+) ions from dirt particles, forcing its electric potential entirely into negative (-) potential. As soon as this happens, the dirt particles will repulse and depart from the object. Interesting fact, researchers who base on 100 years of scientific literature also found evidences that supports exposure to negative ions reduces symptoms of depression for some people, reduces stress and boost immune system function.
BANO embraces deodorant effect in removing bad smell through its antimicrobial potential. Also, due to its high number of negative (-) ions, BANO can act as an agent to purify your surrounding air.
BANO is used to promote plant growth, producing healthier plants. It helps plant growth as the nutrients are more absorbable and function as irrigation to plants with less watering required.
High alkaline electrolyzed water will stop the generation of static electricity which is caused by friction. This is useful for cleaning electrical appliances under low humidity.
This essentially reflects the above features altogether as well as the very meaning of “BANO” literally. The term BANO is derived from the Japanese word, ばんのう, which means Multipurpose.
