Project Description


HEDP 60%, HEDP Acid

High-quality HEDP 60 acid at the best price.

CAS No.: 2809-21-4
Molecular Formula: C2H8O7P2
Molecular weight: 206.02
Structural Formula:



HEDP 60 is an organic phosphonic acid corrosion inhibitor. HEDP acid can chelate with Fe, Cu, and Zn ions to form stable chelating compounds. HEDP 60% can dissolve the oxidized materials on these metals’ surfaces. It shows excellent scale and corrosion inhibition effects under temperature 250℃.

HEDP 60% has good chemical stability under high pH value. It hard to be hydrolyzed and decomposed under ordinary light and heat conditions. Its acid/alkali and chlorine oxidation tolerance are better than that of other organic phosphonic acids (salt).

HEDP  can react with metal ions in the water system to form a hexa-element chelating complex, with calcium ion in particular. Therefore, HEDP 60 has good antiscale and visible threshold effects. When built together with other water treatment chemicals, it shows good synergistic effects.

The solid state of HEDP is crystal powder, suitable for usage in winter and freezing districts. Because of its high purity, it can be used as a cleaning agent in electronic fields and as additives in daily chemicals.

HEDP 60 is used as scale and corrosion inhibition in circulating cool water system, oil field and low-pressure boilers in fields. Such as electric power, chemical industry, metallurgy, fertilizer, etc. In woven industry, HEDP acid is used as detergent for metal and nonmetal.

In the dyeing industry, HEDP is used as peroxide stabilizer and dye-fixing agent; in non-cyanide electroplating, it is used as chelating agent. The dosage of 1-10mg/L is preferred as a scale inhibitor, 10-50mg/L as a corrosion inhibitor, and 1000-2000mg/L as detergent.

Usually, HEDP acid chemicals are used together with the polycarboxylic acid.
