Bardac® LF Product Range

Bardac® LF is synergistic with oxidizing biocides and prevents algae growth, lowering the need for halogens. Bardac® LF is compatible with anionic scale and corrosion inhibitors, which can result in a decrease of operating costs.  Bardac® LF is water soluble and is not a dermal sensitizer.

Bardac® LF has low-foaming tendency compared to other ADBAC-based products.  Low-foam is an advantage in recirculating cooling systems.

  • Active ingredient: 50% Dioctyl Dimethyl Ammonium Chloride
  • Available in multiple product compositions ranging from 10% to 80% concentration

Isocil® Product Range

Isocil® products are a blend of Isothiazolinones and composed of 5-chloro-2-methyl-4-thiazoline-3-ketone (CMIT) and 2-methyl-4-thiazoline-3-ketone (MIT).

The bactericidal effect of Isothiazolinones is carried out through breaking the bond between the bacteria and algae protein. The product can be used in many industrial applications to inhibit microbes’ growth, and it has inhibition and biocidal effects on ordinary bacteria, fungi and algae.

 Isocil® products are fully compatible with cationic, anionic and nonionic surfactants and with a variety of raw materials. 

  • Broad spectrum
  • International acceptance as a safe and effective antimicrobial
  • Favorable degradation
  • Soluble in water
  • Colourless and odourless
  • Favorable compatibleness and stabilization with a large range of corrosion and scale inhibitors
  • Non-foaming
  • Cost effective

This biocidal product can be used in industrial circulating cooling water systems and water utilized during the papermaking process.

Dantobrom® Product Range

Dantobrom® products are high performance, solid bromine biocides that offer cost-effective microbial control. The products, which come in briquette and granular form, are broad-spectrum bactericides, fungicides and algaecides that can be used for a variety of industrial water treatment applications.

Dantobrom is a halogenated dialkylhydantoin that functions as an effective microbiocide through the controlled release of active bromine and chlorine. Dantobrom is a fungicide, bactericide, algaecide, and molluscicide for recirculating and once-through fresh and salt water systems. It is also a slimicide for the manufacture of food and non-food grades of paper and paperboard. Dantobrom is also recommended to control bacterial, fungal, and algal slimes in evaporative condensers, recirculating cooling tower systems, influent systems, industrial wet scrubber systems, sewage systems, auxiliary water systems, photo processing wash water, air washers, and brewery pasteurizers. Dantobrom RW is an effective component of a total program to control biofilm in industrial water systems. Published studies show that the combination of free and combined halogen provided by Dantobrom RW is more efficacious towards biofilm then either free chlorine or free bromine alone. The increased stability of the combined halogen in systems with high halogen demand allows greater diffusion into the biofilm without losses due to unwanted side reactions.

Along with their novel hydantoin chemistry, Dantobrom® products provide a number of key benefits:

  • Improved wet and dry physical stability
  • Increased solubility
  • Higher purity by eliminating binders
  • Minimal corrosion
  • Suitable for both slug and continuous feed
  • Compatible with other water treatment additives
  • To be dosed via brominators

Dantochlor® Product Range

Dantochlor® products are halogenated dialkylhydantoins that function as a microbiocide through the controlled release of active chlorine. The products are an effective bactericide, fungicide and algaecide for recirculating and once-through fresh and salt water systems. They are also an effective slimicide for paper mills that manufacture food and non-food grades of paperboard.

The Dantochlor® products reduce bacterial, fungal and algal slimes in evaporative condensers, recirculating cooling tower systems, influent systems, industrial wet scrubber systems and brewery pasteurizers.

These products are an effective component of a total program to manage biofilm growth in industrial water systems. Published studies show that the combination of free and combined halogen provided by the Dantochlor® products is more efficacious towards biofilm than either free chlorine or free bromine alone. The increased stability of the combined halogen in systems with high halogen demand allows greater diffusion into the biofilm without losses due to unwanted side reactions.

  • Dantochlor® Powder dissolves faster than the briquette form, is available in super sacks and is to be dosed via a dedicated feeder.
  • Dantochlor® RW Briquettes can be used in pressurized systems like standard brominators and is available in 25 and 50 pound pails.
