The Z-Loy™ Advantage

All Zero Valent Iron is Not the Same!

Many products have come and gone but Z-Loy products remain the industry's state-of-the art remediation solution.

Z-Loy™ materials are engineered value-added products specifically designed for elimination of soil and groundwater contaminants. Lets take a look...

Most iron powders used for environmental remediation are made for other uses.

        • Vitamins
        • Powder injection molding
        • Shot blasting

Well, the old adage holds true: "You get what you pay for"

In this industry, just like almost all others, there is a simple rule: Low cost = Low performance

Dosing and Cost


Z-Loy™ AquaMetal ZVI recommended dosing:

0.05 - 0.2 m/m% Soil

 Material Cost/ Treated yd

$8 - $15


    Installation:  Easy = low cost

      • Screened wells
      • Low pressure DPT, simple mixing systems


Commodity iron recommended dosing:

0.5 - 2.0 m/m% Soil

 Material Cost/ Treated yd

$10 - $30

            Installation:  Difficult = High cost

        • Thickened slurry to prevent settling or very aggressive mixing - High pressure application
        • There are many contractors who know how to emplace commodity iron - It usually costs more than an injectable material.
