THE COMPETITIVE DIFFERENCE
Reusing cloning collars eventually results in failed clones. While cleaning cloning collars between grow cycles is both time consuming and unreliable.
PermaClone™ collars prevent failed clones by providing heat sterilizable, long lasting, chemical resistant collars which fit EZ-Clone®, TurboKlone or Power Cloner® systems. Stop spending time attempting to clean cloning collars or money replacing them. PermaClone collars are for continuous reuse. With Permaclone, you start off every cloning cycle with a fully sterilized collar.
So, what's so special about PermaClone?
Currently available cloning collars are not heat sterilizable. While chemical sterilization degrades most cloning collars, including neoprene. PermaClone collars can be dry heat sterilized, pressure cooked, or autoclaved...completely killing bacteria, fungi and their spores throughout the collars.
In other applications PermaClone's polymer blend has been shown to last over 10 years under much harsher conditions than aeroponic cloning. Only time will establish our upper limit, but for now, we guarantee fives years of productivity! ...or we'll replace the collars for FREE!
UV Light & Chemical Sterilization
Leading brands contain chemical bonds which are susceptible to oxidation by UV light or oxidants such as bleach or peroxides. PermaClone collars' polymer blend resists oxidation more effectively than any leading brand of cloning collars. This makes PermaClone safe as a top cap while chemically sterilizing cloning systems.
Effective Dunk-based Cleaning
Do you soak you collars in cleaning solutions between cloning cycles? Do you pry open each collar to ensure complete access of cleaning and sterilizing agents? PermaClone's central gap allows cleaning agents to access the point of plant contact with a simple, efficient dunk in the cleaning solution of choice.
A Point of Plant Contact
Conventional cloning collars have porous surfaces at the point of plant contact. Each pore is a huge increase in surface area where roots, fungi and bacteria can grow. PermaClone collars are molded with a surface that resists root penetration and limits the surface area accessible to microbes.
Engineering for Durability
PermaClone collars are both stronger and denser than traditional cloning collars; but the ellipsoid shape and central gap decrease the force applied to the stem while increasing the force applied to the cloning system.
