DI Resin: What Is It?

Deionized water is also called demineralized or DI water, and it can only be produced with ion exchange resins. The DI resin products are small plastic beads that use organic polymer chains. The chains have charged functional groups, which are built into the resin beads. Each functional group has a negative or positive charge, which is fixed for that particular need. In a sense, the deionization water is just the removal of various ions. Ions are molecules or atoms that are found in water. In most cases, the ions are considered to be impurities and should be removed from the water before it is used to clean, drink, or rinse.

Positively charged ions are usually called cations and negatively charged ions are usually called anions. DI resin is used to exchange the cations and anions that are non-desirable with hydroxyl and hydrogen, which forms a pure form of water. Most municipal waters have a variety of ions, such as chlorides, calcium, magnesium, sulfates, iron, nitrates, sodium, carbonates, silica, and others. The cation resins have a negative charge, so they tend to attract positively charged ions. You’ll find strong-acid and weak-acid cations. Anion resins have positive charges, so they attract negatively charged ions. You’ll find strong-base and weak-base anions.

Window Cleaning Supplies offers a variety of cleaning supplies to customers. However, the company knows that you must have the cleanest water to clean your windows. Primarily, the DI resin feature of filtration systems allows you to remove all the ions that can cause streaking and lead to mineral build-up with time. You can find a variety of filtration systems available here, but you can also find ladders, cloths/pads, kits, squeegees, and many other products designed to help you clean your windows sufficiently. Plus, you can receive fast delivery if you live/work in New Zealand or Australia.
