The philosophy of C3-OPTIMUM

Cleaning must be different! The environmental impact must be reduced, hygiene must be increased and our ecological footprint must be reduced.

Today’s society faces many challenges. Raw materials shortage, increased need for hygiene and pressure on the climate. The SDGs (sustainable development goals) have been created to deal with this in a positive way and to strive for a common goal. Working towards a better world in 2030 on the basis of 17 sustainable development goals.

At C3-OPTIMUM we looked for ways to reduce the environmental impact of cleaning, improve hygiene standards and reduce raw material consumption, thereby reducing the ecological footprint.

Our aim:

With its sustainable product portfolio, C3-OPTIMUM wants to contribute to achieving the sustainable development goals in 2030. We focus in particular on:

  • SDG 7
  • SDG 12
  • SDG 13


Cleaning products must be safe for people, materials and the environment.


Inform, inspire and convince companies that sustainable cleaning products not only contribute to CSR, but also to the profitability of the company.


Offering excellent long-lasting cleaning products for a variety of applications at affordable prices.


The unique effect of C3-OPTIMUM

Cleaning must be different! The environmental impact must be reduced, hygiene must be increased and our ecological footprint must be reduced.

Conventional cleaners are often all aimed at removing the contamination. This is often done on the basis of soaking off / dissolving the contamination. To achieve this, these cleaners usually consist of a high percentage of chemical solvents. Examples include alcohol and bleach.

This has some major adverse side effects:

– increasing chance of resistance
– harmful to the environment / climate
– harmful to the surface to be cleaned (eroding / corrosive)
– harmful to health

In theory there are 2 main forms of pollution.

  • 1.
    Natural pollution / environmental pollution; examples are skin fats, micro-organisms and bacteria, fungi and viruses, dust, black deposits due to polluted air and, for example, algae and moss.
  • 2.
    Chemical pollution ; non-natural pollution that is attached to the surface to be cleaned by means of a chemical compound. Examples are paint, ink, glue, permanent markers, etc. Cleaning products with (a lot of) chemical solvents are almost always used to remove both forms of contamination. Surfaces with natural and environmental pollution are much more common than surfaces with chemical pollution. C3-OPTIMUM products are particularly suitable for cleaning surfaces with natural pollution. So for the most part! By working with C3-OPTIMUM products without chemical solvents for this contamination, an unnecessarily high environmental impact, damage to surface materials and resistance is prevented.
    The core philosophy of C3-OPTIMUM is not how the dirt is dissolved, but how the dirt can no longer adhere (again) to the substrate.


The C3-OPTIMUM products work on the basis of advanced silane technology. Silane technology should not be confused with nanotechnology. Silane molecules are basically gaseous and are originally very small. So small that they can operate in the Nano sphere. They are therefore not consciously reduced molecules as in nanotechnology.

Together with other components in C3-OPTIMUM, the silane molecules have acquired the property that they bind at a molecular level to the surface to be cleaned and are much less susceptible to contamination. This creates a dirt-repellent effect. By bonding to the surface in the nanotopography of the material, the dirt present is released deep into the pores of the material.

As a result, no chemical solvents are required, the product is 100% environmentally friendly, not harmful to the material and the skin and the products do not require hazard symbols and labelling.
