About FFT Technologies Science

FFT Technologies is delivering product solutions that are based in a science unlike other products. The graphic above is a simplified explanation of the core technology which is driving dozens of amazing products.

All of the products are:

  • 100 % bio-renewable
  • Plant based components
  • NO dangerous chemical compounds
  • NO harmful residual
  • Patented formula

We are Carbon Based Creatures living in a world of Hydrocarbons.

Hydrocarbon molecules make up a large percentage of our world including FATS OIL & Grease. The challenge developing products which clean or modify Hydrocarbon compounds is that Oil & Water don’t mix.

Hydrocarbons are hydrophobic – don’t like water – that is why oil and water don’t mix!

Developing products which affect a wide range of Hydrocarbons requires the ability to mix oil and water. FFT products accomplish this using Tensides.

TENSIDES are a type of surfactant, compounds that lower surface tension between liquids like oil and water. The tail of the Tensides are oil-soluble and project into the oil. The head of the tensides are water-soluble making contact with water. Commercial detergents have two or three tensides, FFT products contain a highly diverse collection of tensides. The action of the Tensides break the Hydrocarbons into smaller units called Micelles.

MICELLES are created by tensides as they lower the surface tension between oil and water allowing them to break the mass into smaller components and forming a Colloidal Suspension. Hydrocarbons in the colloidal are prevented from recombining. In water, Micelles remain in continuous motion by the surrounding water molecules. The FFT molecules act like a microscopic sand blaster, continuously attracting and binding with bigger oil drops to form smaller Micelles, reducing the hydrocarbons down to a size which can be easily consumed by naturally occurring bacteria.

Commercial detergents (with 2 - 3 tensides) form large micelles; FFT Tensides form small micelles. Smaller micelles form faster are less likely to burst during any agitation and are easier to consume by bacteria. The constant action of the Micelles continues to reduce the Micelles to microscopic, nono-sized facilitating the consumption by bacteria. The bacteria reduce the Hydrocarbons to benign organic compounds, mostly H20 & CO2.

FFT Technologies Science is integrated in dozens of products across a diverse range of industries. Each of these apply the basic principals described above to provide targeted solutions which are all plant based and human healthy.
