Product Description. ZeroTol is sold and packaged as a 25% concentrate that is designed to be diluted with clean, cold water. The concentrate is a very strong and reactive oxidizer and extreme care should be exercised in handling the ZeroTol concentrate. However, once the concentrate is diluted with water to or below a 6% concentration ZeroTol becomes relatively safe.

The strongest recommended working solution for ZeroTol is a 1:50 dilution. This dilution rate of 1/2 percent ZT, is Generally Regarded As Safe by both the USDA and FDA for human consumption.


Use the foIlowing precautions when handling the concentrate:

  1. Wear eye protection: The concentrate can cause severe eye injury.
  2. Wear protective gloves and splash aprons: The concentrate can cause skin irritation and a TEMPORARY discoloration of the skin. Direct contact of ZT to exposed skin may cause skin to temporarily turn white. This phenomenon is often times associated as a skin burn. It is not. It is simply the skin lifting away as it becomes oxygenated by the ZT. This condition lasts 45-60 minutes and the skin will return to its original condition within this time frame.
  3. Do not ingest the concentrate: Ingestion of the concentrate will cause severe gastrointestinal distress.
  4. Do not directly inhale the vapors of the concentrate: The vapors of the concentrate may cause irritation of the mucous membranes of the nose and throat.
