“We had proof in the back of the truck that Upwind worked. Another great hunting product was born, Hunt Upwind, Hunt Down Odors!.”
“The most effective way to conceal your scent is to eliminate the odor compounds that define your scent identity.”
Hydrogen Sulfide(Odor) + Hydrogen Peroxide -> Elemental Sulfur(Odorless) + Water H2S + H2O2 → S0 + 2H2OThe oxidation process is similar to “airing out” your hunting gear, in doing so you are making oxygen available to complete oxidation reactions and eliminate odor. Upwind® Copper Ion Technology The core component of the Upwind system of odor elimination products is our copper ion technology. The mechanism of eliminating odor compounds is initiated by the dissociation of our copper ion complex that results in a controlled release of active copper ions. As active copper ions are released they work as a catalyst for the oxidation of odor compounds. This unique ability to dissociate and provide active copper ions to catalyze oxidation reactions with odor compounds is the key to odor elimination. The unique properties of our copper ion complex have been the basis for several patents in the United States and Worldwide. Unlike other oxidation technologies that are consumed in the oxidation reaction, our copper ion technology works as an oxidation catalyst to continuously eliminate odors. Put another way, our copper ion technology causes a continually repeating process of rapid chemical combination of oxygen molecules present in the air with odor causing molecules, changing them to odorless compounds. What separates Upwind® and provides value for Hunters? Upwind’ s copper targets odors and accelerates oxidation reactions that eliminate odor compounds. In addition to faster more efficient oxidation, Upwind’ s technology provides active copper ions to work as an oxidation catalyst long after initial application. Unlike other metal complexes, Upwind’ s copper ion complex can dissociate and free up large amounts of active free copper ions. Other metal complexes, metal additives, and metal enhanced fabrics, often provide little if any free metal ions due to their inability to dissociate and provide a free, reactive form of metal ion.
Good luck hunting and always be safe,
The Upwind Team
