Phosphonic acid,[[bis[2-[bis(phosphonomethyl)amino]ethyl]amino]methyl]-, sodium salt;
Britequest DTPMPA easily dissolves in any acidic solution. In alkaline environment and at high temperatures (even above 210oC), Britequest DTPMPA shows superior scale and corrosion inhibition than other organophosphonic acids and –phosphonates. It avoids carbonate, phosphate and sulphate scale formation.
It is used in detergents, industrial and municipality water treatment, as additives to cooling and heating water and water used in oil fields. Especially in alkaline water streams, then requiring no additional pH regulation. And in high barium carbonate concentrations. Even without additional dispersing agent, scale sediment is neglectable when using Britequest DTPMPA.
It is further used in paper making, electro plating, metal cleaning and cosmetics.
Britequest DTPMPA has some positive side effects:
– stabilizing other reactive additives, such as peroxides in detergents
– chelating in textile weaving and dyeing
– dispersing pigments
– complexing and carrying micro elements in fertilizer
