Discovered by Naegeli and further developed by G. A. Krause, Katadyn is the procedure to kill water-born germs. The Katadyn sterilizer contains molded bodies with a highly active silver coating. The silver dispatches ions (atoms charged with electricity) into the water which in turn kills bacteria. As a result the water is free of bacteria and stays charged killing bacteria that enter the water even after the initial procedure. The inserted leaves provide a general description of the Katadyn process, leaves with photos of the Katadyn vessels (with duplicate), an overflow filter, the bottle sterilizer, the travel sterilizer, and the tin sterilizer with price lists. The brochure is illustrated with b/w photographs. The additional laid in advertising leaf with descriptive text and photo-illustrated.
