KDF is Kinetic Degradation Fluxion, a high-purity copper-zinc formulation that creates a basic
chemical process to remove chlorine, lead, mercury, iron, and hydrogen sulfide from water
supplies. The process also has a mild reduction effect on bacteria, algae and fungus and can
also reduce the reduce the accumulation of lime scale.
KDF works by exchanging electrons with contaminants. This “give and take” of electrons
converts many contaminants into harmless components. Electrons are transferred between
molecules, and new compounds are created. Some harmful contaminants are changed into
harmless components. Chlorine, for instance, is changed into benign, water-soluble chloride
salt. Many heavy metals such as copper, lead, mercury and others, bond with the KDF surface
and are effectively removed from the water supply.
KDF filters are used most often in conjunction with an activated carbon filter. They prolong the
life and increase the effectiveness of carbon filters by reducing chlorine build-up.
