Vaportek's compound is an odour neutralizer. It modifies the olfactory nature of unwanted odour to a point of odour disappearance.
When two substances of given concentrations are mixed, the resulting odour may be far less intense than that of separate components. This is the principle behind odour modification, or neutralization, and the basis for Vaportek's odour neutralizing products.
When molecules of the several constituents of the Vaportek compound volatilize into air, they react with the odour producing elements of the odourous molecule. The portion of the molecule that contributes the odour 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 embedded odours.
