What is Sweet PDZ?

Zeolites were formed from volcanic activity millions of years ago, and it should be stressed, that all zeolites have unique characteristics and abilities.  The clinoptilolite (Clino) that comprises Sweet PDZ is one of the very best at ammonia absorption and odor neutralization.

Classic/Powder: This is the original Sweet PDZ product that was introduced in 1983. The key advantage of this small particle size is the fact that a person can more thoroughly and comprehensively cover the wet spot or problem area. This results in a faster acting performance of absorbing and adsorbing the ammonia and odor. Many Sweet PDZ users translate this faster performance to better performance, and will swear that the Sweet PDZ Classic/Powder outperforms Granular. Who are we to argue with our customers? An additional benefit to some users, is the fact that the Powder usually has a lower retail price. As much as $1.00 less per bag versus Granular Sweet PDZ.




 

Granular: We introduced Granular Sweet PDZ as a result of some customers requesting a larger granule size. Many of these customers were using stall mats in their stalls, and they liked how the Granular product performed with their mats. Additionally, many customers liked the less dusty effect the Granular product offered when they applied it in their stalls. Some folks find that it flows more easily out of a cup or scoop when applying it, thus allowing for more efficient use of Sweet PDZ.

Granular Sweet PDZ tends to be the preferred product for application in pet habitats, such as cat boxes, small animal habitats, bird cages and dog runs.

How Does Sweet PDZ Work?

Sweet PDZ is extremely effective at neutralizing and removing ammonia and odors, because of its two special properties:

1) Adsorption - Which is the sticking of the ammonia gas molecule to the surface of the Sweet PDZ granule.  When the Sweet PDZ granules desorb, or dries out, the ammonia odor molecule is driven off the surface of the mineral as nitrogen.   This is why spent (used) bedding material that includes Sweet PDZ, works so well as a slow release fertilizer or as an enhancement to composting.

2) Cation Exchange Capacity (CEC) - This is the liquid exchange aspect of Sweet PDZ’s odor neutralizing process.  A sodium or potassium cation from the zeolite granule hydrolyzes (goes to liquid/urine) and the ammonium is exchanged and then becomes part of the Sweet PDZ granule.  This liquid exchange works because the Sweet PDZ granules are always holding water. 

The Bottom Line:   Sweet PDZ captures, neutralizes and eliminates harmful ammonia and odors, and it does so through its natural chemistry, not by covering up the odor with a perfume or masking scent.

 

These unique mineral characteristics make Sweet PDZ useful not only in the barn, but also in litter boxes, pet habitats, garbage receptacles, garages, crawl spaces, etc.

Sweet PDZ is the superior and most effective stall freshener product available...

Sweet PDZ is superior to hydrated lime because it does not dry or crack hooves, or sting the eyes and burn the flesh of people or pets/livestock.  Barn lime (calcium carbonate) has no odor neutralizing capacity.  These lime products, at best, only attempt to cover up or hide the ammonia and odors.

Sweet PDZ is safe and gentle to use.  It is an inert mineral, with unique chemistry that actually absorbs & adsorbs moisture and selective gases, such as ammonia.  Because of Sweet PDZ’s unique mineral composition, you will have far superior results in neutralizing and eliminating harmful levels of ammonia and odors; and doing so in a much more cost effective way.

Sweet PDZ is easy to use...

Sweet PDZ outperforms other commercial products, as well as hydrated lime and barn lime, because Sweet PDZ actually removes ammonia and odors through its unique, “cation exchange” and  “adsorption” mineral characteristics.   Unlike some other products, Sweet PDZ does not have a scent or perfume added, so it is not masking odors with a scent of its own.

Sweet PDZ is easy to apply...

The initial application routine for Sweet PDZ in a stripped stall environment is to simply sprinkle a visible covering (generally 4 to 6 cups in a 12’x12’ stall) on the floor of the stall, with the heaviest treatment where the urine is concentrated.  Apply your preferred bedding per your routine.  Your daily routine should include the removal of the saturated bedding material as usual, and then sprinkle a visible covering (generally .5 cup to 2 cups, depending on the size of the wet area) of Sweet PDZ on the “wet spots”.

Enhanced Bedding Performance...

It is very typical for a person to be able to extend the life and performance of their bedding by using Sweet PDZ in their stall.  This is due to Sweet PDZ’s moisture absorption capacity, which in turn reduces the size of the wet spots and allows for better bedding performance.

Sweet PDZ is a real benefit to the environment...

Spent Sweet PDZ has the benefit of an organic fertilizer.  When you pick your stall and/or when it's time to strip the stall, you’ll simply be discarding most of the Sweet PDZ with the rest of the soiled bedding.  If you dispose of your spent bedding on fields or gardens, or if you compost it, you will be adding a beneficial ingredient to the earth as the nitrogen from the absorbed ammonia that Sweet PDZ has taken up will gradually  be released into the soil as nitrogen, and will serve as a fantastic organic fertilizer.  Sweet PDZ has a neutral pH, approximately 7.5.
