Structure Formula:


Benzalkonium chloride is a kind of cationic surfactant, belonging to the nonoxidizing biocide. It can efficiently withhold algae propagation and sludge reproduction.

Benzalkonium chloride also has dispersing and penetrating properties, can penetrate and remove sludge and algae, and has advantages of low toxicity, no toxicity accumulation, soluble in water, convenient in use, unaffected by water hardness.

Benzalkonium chloride can be also used as an anti-mildew agent, antistatic agent, emulsifying agent, and amendment agent in woven and dyeing fields.
