Product Information



Epoleon products offer fast and long-lasting deodorization, as they react chemically with unpleasant smelling compounds to convert them to odorless substances. This differs from other deodorization methods, which involve physically absorbing odors or masking them with fragrances.
Typical foul-smelling gases include alkaline odors (ammonia, trimethylamine, etc.), acidic odors (hydrogen sulfides, methyl mercaptan, short chain fatty acids, etc.), and neutral odors (aldehydes, methyl sulfides, oils and fats, etc.). In many cases, foul-smelling odors contain a mixture of these compounds, making it difficult to achieve broad-acting deodorization.
Betaine and the other compounds contained in Epoleon react chemically with the various malodors – each of which have different properties – converting them into odorless compounds at a time for outstanding deodorization performance.

How Epoleon removes odors

Betaine is a general term referring to intramolecular salts with a positively charged quaternary ammonium and a negatively charged acid, particularly negatively charged carboxylic acid in one molecule.
