FFT Wastewater Science
FFT Wastewater Products create environmentally safe colloidal suspensions made up of sub microscopic particles called Micelles. A Micelle is like a magnet, with one end having a positive charge and the other having a negative charge. When in solution these Micelles remain in continuous motion by continuing to repel each other. They act like a microscopic sand blaster continuously breaking apart the organic substance they are placed in contact with.
Because of their electrical charges, one end of a Micelle is hydrophilic (attracts water) and the other end is hydrophobic (antagonistic to water). When a Micelle comes into contact with fat, oil, or grease, it penetrates and the hydrophobic end bonds to the oil molecule. Now the oil molecule is bound in a colloidal suspension and con not attach to other oil molecules. When this action is multiplied billions of times, the fat, oil, and grease molecules become so diffused that they take on the characteristics of a water-soluble solution. This explains why our products have the cleaning ability of soaps, detergents, solvents, yet none of the caustic side effects. In fact, they are non-toxic, completely biodegradable, and made from plant based materials.
