Functions of Dodigen 226:
Surfactant (cationic).

Manufacturing of Dodigen 226:
A powder or flake preparation with up to 30% active ingredient but containing no other detergents or builders can be obtained by mixing equal quantities of Dodigen 226 and urea in a mixer or on a roller mill. 
The water content of Dodigen 226 partially evaporates during grinding or must be removed, if necessary, by a drying process.

Preparation which contain detergents and builders in addition to Dodigen 226 can be prepared with sodium tripolyphosphate / sodium pyrophosphate according to the following guide formulation:
5–10% Dodigen 226
5% nonionic surfactant
10% water 
30% sodium tripolyphosphate or sodium pyrophosphate

The above products are pasted together and harden within 10 to 20 hours. 
Dodigen 226 can be mixed with further builder substances or extenders.

Liquid products:
The following guide formulation give a liquid disinfectant cleaner: 1-20% Dodigen 226

Storage of Dodigen 226:
Dodigen 226 can be stored for at least to 2 years in original sealed sontainers at room temperature under the recommended conditions.
Protect Dodigen 226 from exposure to cold during transport and storage. 

The properties of Dodigen 226 are reversibly altered by exposure to cold. 
If Dodigen 226 becomes turbid, thickens or freezes through exposure to cold, thaw slowly at room temperature and afterwards stir briefly.
