Ona Gel is an odor neutralizer in a gel form and is dispensed by natural evaporation.
Ona Gel is one of Ona's most popular products. Many years were spent developing a blend of Ona and various suspension elements to result in a product that has excellent dispersion qualities. The Ona odor neutralizing agents are released in a controlled manner so that every molecule is fully optimized.
Ona Gel is an odor neutralizer in a gel form and is dispensed by natural evaporation. It is powerful yet safe to use around people, pets and plants. Ona Gel is non-toxic and environmentally friendly. Fresh Linen scent.
ONA (Odor Neutralizing Agent) products are designed using scientific principles of molecular bonding. Two odors can offset one another when they combine to form a bond. ONA's active ingredients come from a blend of 32 essential oils and plant-derived compounds that bond with and neutralize a wide array of odors. ONA Gel is saturated with ONA liquid concentrate; gardeners simply remove the lid from the jar or pail to expose it to the air and remove odors from the source.
- 1 Liter Jar (732 g/25.8 oz): for general use; just open the lid and place where odors are prevelant.
- 4 Liter Pail (3.8 kg/8.5 lbs): dispense with ONA Breeze or puncture lids for light application.
- 4 Liter Jar (3.27 kg/0.86 gal): dispense with ONA Breeze or ONA Odor Stop (higher volume)
- 20 Liter Pail (20 kg/44 lbs): dispense with ONA Storm or refill smaller containers
Application for ONA
ONA Odor Neutralizer has been destroying odors effectively for many years and is used in hydroponics and commercial applications worldwide. ONA was originally developed for use in industrial applications to neutralize strong odors in sewage treatment plants, rendering plants and chemical plants. It uses three processes: absorption, adsorption and the “Pairs” Theory to virtually cancel out most organic and non-organic odors.
Hydroponic Applications ??? For Peace of Mind
ONA has built its reputation as being an effective odor neutralizer for the hydroponics and gardening industry. Indoor gardening can result in strong and undesirable odors that can create problems for the growers. In order to have a zero odor impact, it is imperative to use a product that attacks and completely eliminates these odors.
ONA??™s formulation is designed to attack any type of odor, regardless of type or source. Because it is a wide spectrum formulation, it will neutralize virtually every non-organic and organic odor, and leave only a clean, fresh scent.
How does ONA work?
There are three mechanisms of action that can occur, based on the chemical and physical natures of each terpene and active ingredient versus the organic and inorganic volatile compounds.
Adsorbtion - All VOCs and odorous compounds have a solubility factor in ONA active ingredients. This solubility will allow the VOC compound to solubilize itself in the presence of ONA, relative to the chemistry of the emission, temperature, pH, and pressure of the environment.
Absorption — The active molecules in ONA will attract or come into contact with low molecular weight or volatile compounds (VOC’s). These VOC’s will enter and bond with the ONA active ingredients to eliminate odors.
Chemical Reaction (The Pairs Theory 2 ) — This involves the permanent bonding of the odorous molecule (VOC) and the ONA active ingredients reactive sites. This mechanism transforms the pollutant in its basic properties. As a result, odor disappears.
The ONA odor neutralizing products consist of complex formulations representing a variety of chemical compounds offering different functionalities, both structural and chemical. The technology behind ONA was initiated over 25 years ago. The scientist who invented ONA became fascinated when he observed that terpenes, when diffused into the environment, reduced odors and unwanted emissions. Inspired by this finding, further evidence showed that the odors were not just masked but permanently removed. The result was a set of specialized formulations that neutralize a wide spectrum of organic and inorganic odor problems — effectively, efficiently and permanently. ONA formulations have been scientifically engineered to be environmentally safe. ONA is manufactured under strict quality controls to ensure a safe and non-toxic product. The components used to make ONA are generally recognized as safe and have been commonly used in the food and cosmetics industries with a long history of safety.
Terpenes are widespread in nature, mainly in plants as constituents of essential oils. Many terpenes are hydrocarbons, but oxygen-containing compounds such as alcohols, aldehydes or ketones (terpenoids) are also found. Their building block is the hydrocarbon isoprene, CH2=C(CH3)-CH=CH2 1
- Terpenes have anti-bacterial, antifungal and antiseptic properties.
- Terpenes have oxygenating properties (increases oxygen level).
- When diffused into the environment, terpenes have been found to reduce airborne chemicals and bacteria.
- Terpene characteristics appear to either destroy the odor molecule or convert it to a more acceptable level.
