Quaternary Ammonium 5G
QUATERNARY AMMONIUM 5G: It is a germicidal, bactericidal and fungicidal product used for disinfection treatments of both: agricultural plantations, food plants, industries in general; as well as equipment and utensils used in industrial processes
QUATERNARY AMMONIUM 5G, has 5th generation quaternary ammonium as active principle. The fifth generation has a higher germicidal performance under harsh conditions and is safe to use.
Quaternary ammonium compounds represent a family of antimicrobial compounds, considered as powerful cationic active agents in terms of their disinfectant activity, since they are active in eliminating gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria. They are bactericidal, fungicidal and virucidal. They develop their activity on both acid and alkaline environments. They are compatible with cationic, nonionic and amphoteric surfactants.
QUATERNARY AMMONIUM 5G, it is not irritating. It is not detergent and they are soluble in water and alcohol. Meets the requirements of FDA standard 178.1010 for use as a bactericide, do not rinse in contact with food at doses between 150 and 400 ppm of active ingredient.
MECHANISM OF ACTION
MECHANISM OF ACTION. - Quaternary ammonium compounds are attached to the surface of microorganisms, exerting their biocidal activity, inhibiting the functions of the cell wall and the cytoplasmic membrane or by physical interaction with the cell membrane.
Microbiological activity. - This product has shown bactericidal, fungicidal, virucidal and tuberculocidal activity.
Action time. - According to microbiological analysis, the action time is approximately 1 minute.

SPILL AND LEAK PRECAUTIONS
Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures:
Small spills can be washed with plenty of water.
This product is highly polluting of waterways.
Methods and materials for containment and cleaning up:
Stop leak if it can be done without risk. Contain and collect spill with non-combustible absorbent material (eg sand, earth, diatomaceous clay, vermiculite), and container for disposal in accordance with local and national regulations (see section 13). Remove traces with water.
For large spills, dike the spilled material or otherwise contain the material to ensure that the leak does not reach a water channel.

Conditions to avoid:
Storage at temperatures above the flash point.
HAZARDOUS REACTIONS / INCOMPATIBILITY WITH:
Stored in its original container, at a temperature below 30 ° C, it is stable for up to 3 years. This study quantifies the fifth generation quaternary ammonium chloride concentration at the beginning, during and at the end of the test, and shows that the concentration of the active ingredient remains at the optimal concentration.
This product can be considered toxic at concentrations greater than 250 ppm. Its vapor causes slight skin and visual irritation, etc.
