AQUCAR™

With options available globally for use in biofouling control, anaerobic microbial control, and fluid preservation, the comprehensive AQUCAR™ Water Treatment Microbiocides portfolio includes key chemistries (link to chemistries) such as glutaraldehyde, glut/quat blends, DBNPA, bronopol, OPP and dimethyl-oxazolidine.


AQUCAR™ IG 50 Water Treatment Microbiocide

AQUCAR™ IG 50 Water Treatment Microbiocide is broad-spectrum high performance biocide that is easily dissolved in water. The biocidal activity is due to the ability of glutaraldehyde to react with primary amines, such as those present in the lysine and arginine amino acids that are components of the microbial cell wall. The fixative action can prevent a microorganism from carrying on its normal metabolic functions, resulting in cell death. Typical use application areas include: water treatment, gas and oil production and transmission, pulp and paper, metalworking fluids, and miscellaneous in-can preservation.
