Properties: Benzalkonium Chloride (BKC) is one of the quaternary ammonium form of Cationic wetters that belongs to non oxidizing biocide. It is largely utilized as a bactericidal in the livestock, hospital and personal hygiene spheres. Dual biocidal and detergent properties insure advanced efficacy against algae, bacteria and fungi and engulfed viruses at exceptionally reduced ppm concentrations. It is also incorporated with dispersing and penetrating properties, with benefits of reduced toxicity, zero toxicity accretion. Favorable in use, the product is immune in water hardness and is soluble in water. Utilized as an antistatic agent it also stands as an anti-mildew agent, amendment agent and emulsifying agent in plain-woven and coloring fields. The pH value of the chemical is 6.0~8.0, and in 1% water solution it comes to 6.0-8.0.
As non-oxidizing boicide, dosage of 50-100mg/L is preferable as a precipitate remover, 200-300mg/L is preferable, competent organosilyl antifoaming agent should be appended for this purpose. It can also be utilized together with some other fungicidal such as glutaraldegyde, dithionitrile methane, isothiazolinones for synergism, but cannot be utilized jointly with chlorophenols. If waste is come out after thrown of this product in flowing cool water, the sewage should be filtrated or blown off in time to preclude their deposit in bottommost of assembling tank after bubble disappearance.
No combination with anion surfactant.
The Benzalkonium Chloride (BKC) has wide assortment of applications in different industries;
Acts as a pipeline corrosion inhibitor, prevents the placement of sulfurous gases. Stand as a DE-emulsifier/sludge breaker for increased oil extraction in Oil & Gas industry.
Utilized in the manufacturing of Detergent-Sanitizers, it harmlessly incorporates both detergent & microbicidal properties into products for soil incursion & disinfection that makes it perfect for the formulation of hygiene products in hospitals, dairies etc.
Utilized in the industries of Pharmaceuticals & Cosmetics as it acts as a protective compound to optimize substantivity and emolliency.
On account of its non-corrosive, non-tainting, non-toxic, non-staining properties, it is widely utilized in the preparation of Cleaner-Sanitizers.
Also applicative for food & beverage industry.
Widely employed as an emulsifier, anti-static & preservative in the coatings industry (wood treatment, paints, electronics).
Has various usages in the Chemical industry as phase transfer catalyst, precipitant, DE-emulsifier etc.
Used in water & waste-water treatment compounds and algaecides for swimming pools.
Reduces the demand of pernicious antibiotics in aquaculture through amended hygiene. Used for general site disinfection, fish parasite removal, water treatment, hindrance of septic disease in fish & shellfish.
As it shows superior algaecidal and fungicidal properties, and is highly effectual against different organisms in accumulation formulations, hence applicative for Timber Protection.
Used as a general microbicide for sludge control & aroma management in pulp & paper industry.
Utilized as moth repellents, lasting retarders in coloring of acrylic fibers with cationic coloring material.
Inhibits the growth of mould & fungus on hides and helps in leather dyeing, softening and wetting in leather industry.
Highly trenchant against mildew, moss, fungi, mould, & algae and is utilized for cleaning and formulation of all kinds of surfaces: greenhouses, wooden decking, sheds, roofing, paths, masonry in horticulture & household.
