PAT IMPEX, BENZALKONIUM CHLORIDE BKC 50% & 80% MANUFACTURER

Benzalkonium chloride is a quaternary ammonium antiseptic and disinfectant with actions and uses similar to those of other cationic surfactants. It is also used as an antimicrobial preservative for pharmaceutical products.

Benzalkonium chloride (BZK, BKC, BAK, BAC), also known as alkyldimethylbenzylammonium chloride (ADBAC) and by the trade name Zephiran, is a type of cationic surfactant. It is an organic salt classified as a quaternary ammonium compound. ADBACs have three main categories of use: as a biocide, a cationic surfactant, and a phase transfer agent. ADBACs are a mixture of alkylbenzyldimethylammonium chlorides, in which the alkyl group has various even-numbered alkyl chain lengths.

Benzalkonium chloride also possesses surfactant properties, dissolving the lipid phase of the tear film and increasing drug penetration, making it a useful excipient, but at the risk of causing damage to the surface of the eye.

  • Laundry detergents and treatments.
  • Softeners for textiles.
  • Benzalkonium chloride is a mainstay of phase-transfer catalysis, an important technology in the synthesis of organic compounds, including drugs.

Especially for its antimicrobial activity, benzalkonium chloride is an active ingredient in many consumer products:

  • Pharmaceutical products such as eye, ear and nasal drops or sprays, as a preservative.
  • Personal care products such as hand sanitizers, wet wipes, shampoos, soaps, deodorants and cosmetics.
  • Skin antiseptics and wound wash sprays, such as Bactine.
  • Throat lozenges and mouthwashes, as a biocide
  • Spermicidal creams.
  • Cleaners for floor and hard surfaces as a disinfectant, such as Lysol and Dettol antibacterial spray and wipes.
  • Algaecides for clearing of algae, moss, lichens from paths, roof tiles, swimming pools, masonry, etc.
  • Benzalkonium chloride is also used in many non-consumer processes and products, including as an active ingredient in surgical disinfection. A comprehensive list of uses includes industrial applications. An advantage of benzalkonium chloride, not shared by ethanol-based antiseptics or hydrogen peroxide antiseptic, is that it does not cause a burning sensation when applied to broken skin. However, prolonged or repeated skin contact may cause dermatitis.
