UCARCIDE™ 50 Antimicrobial is a glutaraldehyde based biocide similar to UCARCIDE™ 25, except for the 50% active content. It is EPA approved for antimicrobial use in a wide range of industrial and consumer applications.
UCARCIDE™ 50 Antimicrobial and UCARCIDE™ 25 Antimicrobial are glutaraldehyde based products that have found widespread use in a variety of preservative applications.
UCARCIDE™ 50 Antimicrobial is a broad-spectrum biocide that is easily dissolved in water. Its biocidal activity is due to the ability of glutaraldehyde to react with the primary amines of the microbial cell wall, which prevents normal metabolic functions and result in cell death. UCARCIDE™ antimicrobials are effective in both acidic and basic systems. However, the rate of antimicrobial activity is dependent on several factors, including pH, time, temperature, and concentration.
