Phosphonates exhibit multi-functional properties such as sequestration, de-flocculation, threshold inhibition and stability to oxidizing biocides such as chlorine, bromine, and peroxides. The amalgamation of these properties enables the use of phosphonates in a wide range of applications such as the treatment of cooling and process water.

Application areas include:

  • Textile processing
  • Detergents
  • Paper and pulp mills
  • Desalination plants
  • Cleaners & Detergents
  • Peroxide stabilization
  • Oilfields
  • Swimming pools and spas

Key Features and Benefits

  • Threshold Effect/ Scale Inhibition: Ability of very small amounts of scale inhibitors to keep large quantities of scalants in solution
  • Sequestration: Keep a metal ion in solution, preventing its negative side-effects
  • Dispersion: Prevents the agglomeration of scale particles
  • Corrosion Control: Provides synergistic corrosion control when used with zinc, phosphates, nitrates, molybdates, and others
