GLUTARALDEHYDE

Duro Kimia is the supplier of genuine high quality Glutaraldehyde antimicrobial from DuPont (Formerly under Dow Chemicals) in Malaysia. Known for its biocidal activity, the Glutaraldehyde is effectively used to control the growth of microorganisms such as bacteria and fungus (including spores). It is formaldehyde free, non-carcinogenic, non-persistent and non-bioaccumulative. It can readily biodegrade into non-toxic substances such as carbon dioxide and water, but never into formaldehyde.

The Glutaraldehyde is listed on the World Health Organization (WHO)’s List of Essential Medicines, the most effective and safe medicines needed in a health system.

This microbiocide is known under its heritage name as UCARCIDE 50. Here at Duro Kimia, we only supply genuine Glutaraldehyde – without any contamination nor additive such as formaldehyde or glyoxal.

CAS: 111-30-8

IUPAC: Pentanedial

Other terms: Glutaraldehyde; Glutardialdehyde; Glutaric acid dialdehyde; Glutaric aldehyde; Glutaric dialdehyde; 1,5-Pentanedial

KEY FEATURES

  • Antimicrobial efficacy against bacteria, fungus, mold and yeast at low use concentrations (0.01-0.1% active ingredient)

  • Excellent compatibility with surfactants (anionic, cationic and non-ionic)

  • Biocidal activity over a broad pH and temperature range

  • Good compatibility with other antimicrobials – ie: KATHON WT, Benzalkonium Chloride

  • High salt tolerance

  • Non-corrosive to metals at recommended use levels

  • Complete solubility in water

  • End-use concentrations of Glutaraldehyde can easily be analysed on site with field test kits, or in the laboratory by several different methods

  • Extremely quick kill (within 5-10 minutes) with shock dosing in highly contaminated water systems

  • Does not contain nor release formaldehyde

APPLICATIONS

  • General preservative use

  • Oil Field
    Injection water systems, drilling muds, packer fluids, completion and work-over fluids

  • Hospital high level disinfectant
  • Preservation of concentrates

  • Reverse osmosis membranes

  • Concrete admixtures

  • Used as a substitute to formalin (which releases formaldehyde, a known carcinogen)

  • Paper mills
