  • Applications

    Household cleaning  Dissolvine® M-40 effectively replaces phosphorous containing builders in dishwashing detergents. It enhances the cleaning power of a cleaner / detergent by sequestering hard water ions from water and dirt. It prevents the deactivation of surfactants from hard water metal ions. It also deactivates transition metal ions thus stabilizing detergents that contain peroxides. Industrial & Institutional cleaning Dissolvine® M-40 forms stable, water-soluble metal complexes with all potentially harmful metal ions. It dissolves existing and prevents new scales from causing problems in water circulation equipment (in e.g. the power, brewing, and sugar industries).  Because of its low molecular weight this chelate performs very well in short contact cleaning.  Dissolvine® M-40 Metal treatment Dissolvine® M-40 is very suitable as a metal carrier, a stabilizer of process baths and for neutralizing trace impurities. It can be used in e.g. alkaline Zinc and electroless Copper plating. Polymer processing
