This product is a high-purity, versatile, and environmentally friendly chelate. Its applications include effectively replacing phosphorous-containing builders in dishwashing detergents, as it forms stable, water-soluble metal complexes with potentially harmful metal ions. It has a clear, colorless to light yellow appearance.

    Applications & Uses

    Recommended Applications

    Household cleaning

    • Dissolvine® M-40 effectively replaces phosphorous containing builders in dishwashing detergents.
    • It enhances the cleaning power of a cleaner / detergent by sequestering hard water ions from water and dirt.
    • It prevents the deactivation of surfactants from hard water metal ions.
    • It also deactivates transition metal ions thus stabilizing detergents that contain peroxides. 

    Industrial & Institutional cleaning

    • Dissolvine® M-40 forms stable, water-soluble metal complexes with all potentially harmful metal ions.
    • It dissolves existing and prevents new scales from causing problems in water  circulation equipment (in e.g. the power, brewing, and sugar industries).

    Because of its low molecular weight this chelate performs very well in short contact cleaning.
