Formulating with Zelan™ CA-72
It is recommended to dilute Zelan™CA-72 to 5-15% working strength with water. A ladder study should be conducted to determine the optimum concentration for your specific application. A biocide should be added to formulations containing Zelan™ CA-72 to prevent microbial contamination and growth. For particularly dense substrates the addition of 2-5 wt% polar protic solvent can improve performance.
