Delivering effective and economical metal ion control
Uncontrolled metal ions in your product or process can eat away profits by causing scaling, chemical degradation, discoloration, precipitation, emulsion instability or rancidity, among many other problems. In products, soluble metal ions accelerate chemical reactions that reduce quality, consumer appeal, shelf life and ultimate value. In processes, uncontrolled metal ions hamper process efficiency and increase equipment downtime.
Our broad portfolio of VERSENE™, VERSENEX™ and VERSENOL™ Chelating Agents can help you neutralize harmful metal ions in water-based formulations and processes across a wide range of market applications, including household care, industrial and institutional cleaning, food and beverage, textiles, oilfield, pulp and paper processing, agriculture, and many more. Dow chelating agents are aminopolycarboxylic acids available as EDTA-, HEDTA-, or DTPA-based products, and they offer a number of unique advantages, including:
- Predictable performance
- Effectiveness at low concentrations
- High thermal stability
- Excellent chemical and pH stability
- Resistance to bacterial and mold breakdown
