Press release from: Chemequal

Quaternary Disinfectants are broad spectrum disinfectants. According to EPA’s definition broad spectrum disinfectants show efficacy against all the three major classes of microbial organisms-Bacteria, Fungi and Viruses
Cleaning products used in houses, industries, public places are mainly based on quaternary ammonium compounds.
The risk of contamination is increasing at an alarming rate in our everyday life. Thus disinfectants are an important component for safeguarding the environment.
Structurally Quaternary ammonium compounds contain a positively charged nitrogen atom which is bonded to four organic groups. These are used as broad spectrum disinfectant.
Quaternary ammonium compounds destroy the cell wall of microbes. The positively charged nitrogen atom binds itself with the cell membrane of the microbes which are negatively charged. This denatures the protein present in the cell of bacteria or fungi impairing their metabolic reaction and finally causes death.
Because different types of combinations are possible many versions of QACs are available commercially. The most commonly found QAC in disinfectants are Benzalkonium chlorides, also known as alkyl dimethyl benzyl ammonium chlorides .Abbreviations for Benzalkonium chloride include BAC, BZK, BKC, and ADBAC.
QAC based products possess superior stability compared to other disinfectants. QACs show the broadest spectrum of efficacy against microbial agents. It shows activity against Bacteria, Viruses, Protozoa, Fungus and Algae.
QACs show good cleaning properties. The main use of QACs are in healthcare sectors.
One of the key features of QAC based disinfectants is that they are non corrosive to metal pipes and other surfaces. They can be diluted for easy use and thus cause very little damage to the surface. QAC based products show exceptional material compatibility .

KEY FEATURES
• Economical and easy availability
• Non -damaging on carpets, clothing etc.
• Non corrosive to metal pipes
• Non Toxic

Main Application of Quaternary Disinfectant
• Food Processing Plants-All the instruments and equipments used in food industries need to be sterilized correctly otherwise it would cause alteration in food quality.QAC based products are used extensively to give proper sterilization against all microbial attack.
• Personal Hygiene- QAC for its excellent germicidal activity are used in most hand sanitizers, hand gel etc. It has proven to show 99.99% destruction of common bacteria like Staphylococcus aureus and Escherichia coli for an exposure time of 2 minutes.
• Medical Institutions –For cleaning and disinfecting bathroom surfaces. In many hospital rooms QAC based products are employed in spray fogging for killing airborne and surface bacteria.

SURFACTANTS
Surfactants are surface active agents that aids in the lowering of interfacial tension between two liquids or between a solid and a liquid. All detergents, emulsifiers, wetting agents, foaming agents and dispersants fall under the class of surfactants. Surfactant molecules are amphiphilic in nature chrachterized by a long hydrophobic tail group and a polar hydrophilic head group .This allows surfactants to achieve solubility in
Rodine 85- Preventing Metals from Acid Corrosion
In many industrial operations metals such as steel and iron are subjected to very high temperature which often leaves a discoloring oxide layer or scale on the surface. The process of hot rolling, drawing, annealing and molding of metals result in the deposition of organic impurities, stains, rusts and scale which impede further metal processing. In industries same metals are used for a long period which makes them vulnerable to
Metal Passivation using Rodine 85 for Sulfuric Acid Pickling - ChemEqual
Derusting and descaling operations on industrial metal components require the use of strong mineral acids like sulfuric acid to maintain surface quality. It employs the use of acid baths for oxidative removal of alkali scales and mineral oxide deposits. But mineral acids have a tendency to corrode metal surfaces as well rendering them distorted by formation of pits and loss of base metal. To retard the corrosive nature of acids, the
Rodine 2010 Corrosion Inhibitor for Boiler Chemical Cleaning - ChemEqual
Boiler systems and pipelines associated with power plants and heating systems often face the problem of mineral scaling on the inner linings and transmission bends. This is mainly due to the residual hardness of the coolant water used. While treated water is essential, minute traces of partially soluble salts of calcium, magnesium, strontium, as well as due to silica and ferrous oxides. While scaling may lead to choking and rupture
