Phosphonates are multi-functional metal ion control agents. The unique combination of properties found in phosphonates makes them well suited to address many of the problems encountered in the use of water. Thus, they have become a widely used component in water treatment formulations. In recent years they have also found their way into numerous other applications where metal ion control is crucial to a product or process, such as detergents, cleaners, peroxide stabilization, oil field, swimming pools and spas, and many others.

Phosphonates offer a unique combination of functions

  • “Threshold Effect” scale inhibition: the ability of very small amounts of scale inhibitors to keep large quantities of scalants in solution
  • Sequestration: the ability to inactivate a metal ion and keep it in solution, preventing its negative side-effects
  • Dispersion: prevents the agglomeration of scale particles
  • Corrosion Control: provides synergistic corrosion control when used with zinc, phosphates, nitrates, molybdates, and others
