Detailed description

Aquatreat® AR 540 is the first in a new line of unique sulfonated copolymers. This polymer has evolved as the result of a series of statistically designed experiments. Optimum inhibition of calcium phosphate in stabilized phosphate and zinc-based alkaline cooling water treatment programs was the primary objective. AQUATREAT® AR 540 is a copolymer of acrylic acid and sulfonated monomers. The sulfonated monomers combine hydrophobic character, aromatic structure and high charge density. This unique combination of monomers has resulted in a copolymer with multifunctional performance characteristics. As a result, AQUATREAT® AR-540 provides excellent scale and deposition control under a wide variety of conditions. Its stability under stressed conditions provides superior performance in cooling water systems operating at high cycles of concentration.
