Must be specially suited for low temperature bleaching operations and fast bleaching cycles. Suitable for use in laundry applications employed in laundering of white and colored cotton andpolyester/cotton blend fabrics. Product shall be in uniform, low viscosity. Must keep tensile strength loss to minimum. Must contain no phosphates. No insoluble materials permitted. pH in bleach bath must be 9.5 to 10.5.Ozonated Laundering The EPA has noted that ozonated laundering products may significantly reduce useof water, energy, and detergents in the washing process. Ozonated laundering uses ozone, generated bypassing oxygen through a high voltage electrical field, to remove insoluble materials from fabric--usually whiteitems. Injected into the wash water, ozone reacts chemically with soils making them soluble in water. Comparedwith conventional cleaning, ozonated laundering saves resources by operating at lower temperatures, with fewerrinse cycles, far less detergent--and less drying time. Ozone must be generated on-site and handled carefullysince it is toxic and may cause respiratory irritation. As this is a relatively new product line in the industry, few current Ordering Entities have had their facilities setup for ozonated laundering. Only limited data on use is currently available.
