TCCA is an excellent source of chlorine for the control of biofouling in swimming pools, industrial water systems and cooling water systems. TCCA has been proved to be a better and more economical alternative to bleaching powder and sodium hypochlorite for all kinds of chlorination applications.

Chemistry of Trichloroisocyanuric Acid
After hydrolysis in water, TCCA will be converted to hypochlorous acid (HOCL), which has strong microbial activity. The hydrolysis by-product, cyanuric acid, acts as a stabilizer and prevents conversion of hypochlorous acid into hypochlorite ion (OCL-) owing to sunshine and heat, which has low microbial activity.
Advantages of TCCA
Cost effective and stable source of chlorine
Easy to handle, ship, store and apply.
Save expensive cost of dosing equipment.
No white turbidity (as in case of bleaching powder)
Long duration of sterilizing effect
Stable in storage - long shelf life.
Disinfection of civil sanitation and waste water
Disinfection of swimming pools
Disinfection of industrial water pretreatment
Oxidizing microbiocide for cooling water systems
Bleaching agent for cotton, gunning, chemical fabrics.
Animal husbandry and plant protection
As anti-shrink agent for woolens and battery materials
As deodorizer in distilleries
As preservative in horticulture and aquaculture industries
Keep the container closed when not in use. Store in cool, dry and well-ventilated area, away from fire and heat. Use dry, clean clothing when handling TCCA. Avoid breathing dust, and do not bring in contact with eyes or skin. Wear rubber or plastic gloves and safety glasses.
