In 2010, HaloPure media was approved by China's Ministry of Health (MOH) and recognized for meeting the world’s most stringent water purification requirements, a key differentiator for our multi-national partners. In Brazil, the use of HaloPure media has met or exceeded all appropriate standards of the National Institute of Metrology, Standardization and Industrial Quality (INMETRO).
- SeaKlear ® Pool and Spa treatment products bring both natural biopolymers and antimicrobial applications for treating recreational water.
- HaloShield ® products consist of antimicrobial coatings solutions that employ unique technology that binds chlorine-based bleach to textiles such as sheets, lab coats and towels for use as a non-toxic biocide.

- HaloKlear ™ products use natural biopolymers providing industrial water clarification with dramatic reductions in ecological impact.
