CAS No. 8001-54-5 or 63449-41-2,
one of the Quaternary ammonium class of Cationic
surfactants, belonging to nonoxidizing biocide. It is widely
used as a disinfectant in the Hospital, Livestock and
Personal Hygiene sectors. Dual biocidal and detergency
properties ensure high efficacy against Bacteria, Algae and
Fungi and enveloped Viruses at exceptionally low ppm
also has dispersing and penetrating properties, with
advantages of low toxicity, no toxicity accumulation,
soluble in water, convenient in use, unaffected by water
DDBAC/BKC can be also
used as anti-mildew agent, antistatic agent, emulsifying
agent and amendment agent in woven and dyeing fields.
|Oil & Gas
Pipeline corrosion inhibitor. Prevents formation of sulphurous gases. De-emulsifier/sludge breaker for enhanced oil extraction.
|Manufacture of Detergent-Sanitisers
||Benzalkonium chloride safely incorporates both Microbicidal & Detergency Properties into Products for Soil Penetration & Disinfection, which makes it ideal for Formulation of Hygiene Products for Personal Hygiene, Hospital, Livestock and Food & Dairy use.
|Pharmaceuticals & Cosmetics
||Safety Factor of Benzalkonium Chloride leads to use in Various Topical and Ocular Products as a Preservative and to optimise Emolliency and Substantivity
|Food & Beverage Industry

||Food Storage Tanks
||Milk Storage Tanks
||Cold Storage plants
|Polymer & Coatings
Benzalkonium Chloride is widely used as an Anti-Static, Emulsifier & Preservative in the Coatings Industry (Paints, Wood Treatment, Electronics)
Benzalkonium Chloride has diverse applications in the Chemical Industry as Precipitant, Phase Transfer Catalyst, Emulsifier/De-Emulsifier, etc.
Benzalkonium Chloride is used in Water & Effluent Treatment Formulations and Algaecides for Swimming Pools
Benzalkonium Chloride reduces the requirement of harmful Antibiotics in Aquaculture through improved hygiene. Used for Water Treatment, General Site Disinfection, Fish Parasite Removal, Prevention of Infectious Disease In Fish & Shellfish.
Global environmental concern has led to increasing replacement of chlorinated biocides with safer, biodegradable Benzalkonium Chloride in Wood Protection. It displays excellent fungicidal and algaecidal properties, and is highly effective against other organisms in combination formulations.
|Pulp & Paper Industry
Benzalkonium Chloride is used as a General Microbicide for Slime Control & Odour Management, and improves Paper Handling (Imparts Strength & Antistatic properties)
Benzalkonium Chloride solutions are used as Moth Repellents, Permanent Retarders in Dyeing of Acrylic Fibres with Cationic Dyestuffs.
Benzalkonium Chloride inhibits growth of Mould & Mildew on Hides. Facilitates Leather Softening, Wetting & Dyeing.
|Horticulture & Household

As nonoxidizing boicide, dosage of
50-100mg/L is preferred; as sludge remover, 200-300mg/L
is preferred, adequate organosilyl antifoaming agent
should be added for this purpose.
DDBAC/BKC can be
used together with other fungicidal such as isothiazolinones, glutaraldegyde, dithionitrile methane
for synergism, but cannot be used together with
chlorophenols. If sewage is appeared after thrown of
this product in circulating cool water, the sewage
should be filtered or blown off in time to prevent their
deposit in bottom of collecting tank after froth
No blending with anion surfactant.
