2-Hydroxy Phosphonoacetic Acid(HPAA)


HPAA CAS No.  23783-26-8

Molecular Formula:   C2H5O6P                  Molecular weight: 156

Structural Formula:

2-Hydroxy Phosphonoacetic Acid (HPAA)


HPAA is chemically stable, hard to be hydrolyzed, hard to be destroyed by acid or alkali, safety in use, no toxicity, no pollution. it can improve zinc solubility. Its corrosion inhibition ability is 5-8 times better than that of HEDP and EDTMP. When built with low molecular polymers, its corrosion inhibition effect is even better.
