CD Gas Decontamination: A Residue-Free Process


ClorDiSys Solutions’ chlorine dioxide gas is one of the most gentle decontaminating agents available. Our proprietary method of generation produces a dry, 100% pure chlorine dioxide gas which leaves no residue after treatment. There is no need to rinse, wipe, or clean surfaces afterward. One of the first commercial uses for this method of chlorine dioxide gas was the sterilization of implantable contact lenses. In order for the process to be approved by the FDA, it had to be proven that pure chlorine dioxide gas left behind no measurable residue.

The myth that chlorine dioxide leaves a residue is one that originates from the generalization of all chlorine dioxide products. Other methods of generating chlorine dioxide gas are not as pure, generating the gas using liquids. This method introduces acidic byproducts into the area which can cause corrosion and leave residues. These residues require a post-treatment rinse. After a decontamination is completed and our CD gas has been removed, the area is safe and does not require additional cleanup.
