OxyCat® catalysts and water treatment supplements are based on our patented SilverSan® technology for the activation and stabilization of group 11 metal surfaces.
The manufacturing procedure was first applied in 1995. For the following five years the procedures were constantly improved, for example by running long-term tests. After that, the patent was filed. Our first commercial success was the application in travel filters and reverse osmosis plants.
Manufacturing of Redox-Reactive Oxidation Catalysts
Our patented SilverSan® process is a sequence of chemical treatment steps:
Silver turns black under the formation of Ag2S. In this condition, it is inadequate for treatment of drinking water.
„Freezing“ of oxidation level
Creation of a protective membrane
Crystal-chemical modelling of protective membrane
Direct drying to achieve a predefined residual porosity
Thanks to our patented manufacturing process, we are able to manufacture oxidation catalysts with extraordinary properties. Outstanding feature of OxyCat® catalysts: The multitude of microelectrodes on the surface. The long-lasting protective membrane ensures steady and safe operation for years.
