Benzalkonium chloride (BKC/BAC/BAK)
What is Benzalkonium Chloride?
Benzalkonium Chloride also known as BZK, BKC, BAC, alkyldimethylbenzylammonium chloride and ADBAC, is a type of cationic surfactant. It is an organic salt classified as a quaternary ammonium compound. It has three main categories of use: as a biocide, a cationic surfactant, and as a phase transfer agent.
Our FeF® Benzalkonium Chloride products have proven efficacy against a broad spectrum of microorganisms (gram + and – & acid fast bacteria, yeast, moulds). They are effective through a wide pH range, are surface active/adhesive cationic agents and do not add unpleasant odour/colour to finished formulations.
