Dowicil Preservative


A broad spectrum antimicrobial, highly effective biocide useful for the preservation of aqueous products. As of June 2020 many of the variants had been discontinued (e.g. 75, 150, 200; 75 and 150 having been used in ceramic glazes), but QK-20 was still available. They describe it as "is a fast-acting, broad-spectrum biocide that is ideal for reducing microbiological contamination in raw materials or products such as aqueous paints and coatings, polymers, slurries, adhesives, latex and resin emulsions, sizing, caulk, process water and specialty industrial products including inks, polishes, waxes, detergents, and cleansers."

DOWICIL is 1-(3-chloroallyl)-3,5,7-triaza-1-azoniaadamantane.
