Phosphino carboxylic acid (PCA) associates characteristics of phosphonates as well as polyacrylates. The function is to provide a special equilibrium of limit inhibition and also dispersancy. The PCA has good tolerance to chlorine. And it is also compatible with a lot of microbiological control agents.
The PCA has excellent dispersion performance for the scale of calcium carbonate as well as calcium phosphate in circulating cool water system. The reason is via the introduction of a phosphonic group right into a carboxylic group. In addition, PCA has also good scale inhibition for barium sulfate, strontium sulfate as well as silica scale.
One more thing to note, phosphino carboxylic acid (PCA) can not be affected by chlorine or other oxidizing biocides in standard.
Phosphino carboxylic acid inhibits scale buildup on surfaces through at least three mechanisms. (More details, click here.)
|Appearance||Colorless or light yellow liquid|
|Solid content, %||50 Min.|
|Total phosphor (as PO43-), %||0.5 Min.|

Phosphino carboxylic acid has advantages in a wide range of water quality, chemical stability, strong chlorine tolerance, etc. Engineers use it as scale and corrosion inhibitor in circulating cool water system. And also found in the oilfield refill water system.
