Redox are proud distributors of a range of products from United Initiators including CAROAT®.

CAROAT® is the preferred option to solve problems which are caused by super chlorination when using common pool & spa sanitizers, such as chlorine, bromine and other non-halogenated alternatives.

CAROAT® is characterized by the following:

  • odourless
  • fast dissolving
  • a powerful oxidizer (high oxidation potential)
  • oxygen-based, doesn’t contain chlorine
  • unaffected by UV degradation
  • compatible with sanitizers based on chlorine, bromine and other non-halogen based alternatives

CAROAT® is a non-chlorine oxidizer used for shock treatment applications. It has all the positive functionality of a chlorine oxidizer while avoiding the negative side effects.

This versatile material can also be used in a range of other applications such as –

Denture cleaners: Effective main ingredient in cleaning tablets for dentures.

  • Bleaching agent: CAROAT® has a bleaching effect comparable to that of organic peracids; in the TAED/perborate system it is particularly effective at low temperatures.
  • Biocidal effect: Suitable as an additive to acidic cleaning agents with bleaching and disinfectant effect.
  • Effluent treatment: Oxidative treatment of problematic effluents; sulfide oxidation, nitrite oxidation and cyanide detoxification.
  • Plaster additive: Addition of CAROAT® leads to generation of oxygen and improved product characteristics (e.g. thermal insulation, water absorbency, mechanical properties).
  • Metal treatment: Microetchant: Use for etching printed circuit boards.
  • Textile finishing (shrink proofing of wool)
  • Chemical synthesis (production of dioxirane)
  • Paper manufacture (repulping, particularly of wet-strength paper).
