Platinum ions are a new type of food hygiene in the future. Due to the stability and bactericidal capability of platinum ions, future applications in food hygiene will be as promising as a burgeoning star.

In the past we used silver ions to kill bacteria, but silver ions had two major disadvantages.

First, although silver ion itself has a very good bactericidal effect, it cannot kill fungi. And silver will oxidize which makes it less potent as time goes by.

Second, the use of silver ions in food processing and organic material processing will cause the material to change color. Even protein foods will become dark, changing the external appearance of the material.

Platinum ions, on the other hand, are special, being more than 100 times stronger than silver ions in bactericidal effects. Hence, in terms of cost-effectiveness, it is much  more economical to operate with platinum ions than silver ions.  Further, platinum ions enjoy the advantages of stability and durability, as it is not as as easily oxidized as silver ions, which in time becomes less potent.  In terms of strength, it is much stronger than silver in  killing viruses, bacteria, and fungi, being 100 times more powerful  overall. As time goes by, there may be more discoveries and more applications. What we have learned so far is already unprecedented power.

Because platinum is tens of times more expensive than silver, and nano-grade platinum is very stable in combination, it does not show too many chemical properties. Basically it has no obvious bactericidal effect on human and in animal applications, while silver nano-materials and silverware has excellent bactericidal performance. However, the latter has little effect on fungi, which represent all the results we have gained experimentally. On the other hand, platinum has shown an amazing and excellent bactericidal ability in water-soluble materials in the ionic state, which has been unprecedentedly explored and applied by the scientific community. In recent years, we have, starting from doubt to experimentation, confirmed  that in chelated platinum ions, the durability and sterilization ability are far more than a hundred times stronger than the ability of silver ions.

The reason is that platinum ions are not easily oxidized, yet more stable than silver ions. According to the theory of Material Electronic Phase, platinum ions have more electrical capability than silver ions so that more electric quantum energy is available for transfer.  Hence, an environment is created in which platinum ion sterilizes faster and more efficiently than silver ion.  Henceforth,  major applications for future health and health products are envisaged.

This is a typical example that  materials developed by Remy Technology  (RT) can be applied to applications in many fields. RT envisages that there will be more breakthrough discoveries in science and technology in the future  and that they will be adopted by manufacturers and related industries worldwide.
