Bardac® 22c50 is Didecyl dimethyl ammonium carbonate and Didecyl dimethyl
ammonium bicarbonate. This advanced quaternary ammonium compound is a
technologically differentiated, research developed manufacturing use product. Its
intended use as an active ingredient raw material for antimicrobial end use formulations
such as disinfectants and sanitizers used on hard, non porous surfaces. Bardac® 22c50
is 100% soluble; exhibits broad spectrum micro efficacy in hard water and in the
presence of organic soil; is non-corrosive to most metals and will protect many metal
surfaces from corrosion; requires little or no additional sequestering agents for optimal
performance; has typical foaming characteristics; is compatible with typical nonionic
surfactants, many dyes and fragrances.
Bardac® 22c50 exhibits excellent corrosion inhibition properties on steel, iron, aluminum,
brass, copper and other metals.
Corrosion Results: 1010 Steel coupons held in contact with aluminum in deionized
water are shown below. The results demonstrate the effectiveness of Bardac® 22c50
against galvanic corrosion.
Bardac® 22c50 is freely soluble in water, lower alcohols, ketones and glycols.
