ATLANTA, November 19, 2013 (BUSINESS WIRE) - Zep Inc. (NYSE:ZEP), a leading consumable chemical
packaged goods company that manufactures a wide variety of high-performance maintenance and cleaning
chemicals, today announced that Zep Distribution will launch O2TM by TimeMist®, the next generation of
active air care. TimeMist is the industry's leading air care and odor care line. O2 by TimeMist utilizes
patented oxygen generating technology to deliver continuous, consistent, ambient fragrance for 60 days,
"This technology is similar to what is used in medical applications where providing consistent
dosing quantities over time is critical to quality," says Steve Nichols, Group President of Zep Inc.
"Because O2 by TimeMist consistently and continuously dispenses fragrance, it is an excellent alternative
to more traditional technologies such as gels, wicked products and aerosol systems".
The O2 by TimeMist system offers several key features beyond today's standards: sleek dispenser design
and several color options, 60-day refill cartridge (CARB, EU, and REACH compliant), low VOC refill content,
and available in eight pure oil fragrances ranging from herbal to citrusy to floral. The refills provide
odor-neutralizing agents that eliminate malodors and leave a fresh scent in the air.
The dispenser has a two-sided oxygen generator that takes ambient air from one side and transforms it
to pure oxygen on the other side. The resulting oxygen is channeled into the refill where it consistently
squeezes pure fragrance oil out onto its unique cellular diffuser. The high quality fragrance is then
carried throughout the room by natural airflow for a full 60 days. The dispenser also has an indicator
to notify users when the refill is exhausted and when the batteries must be replaced. The innovative O2
by TimeMist dispenser beats industry standards with a battery life of up to two years.
The O2 by TimeMist system is ideal for a variety of spaces in all environmental conditions within a range
of commercial building types including, restrooms, lobbies, conference rooms, and office spaces in a
variety of venues, such as: convention centers, airports, arenas, hotels, health care facilities and higher
