Physical and Chemical Properties of UCCMALUSCIDE®
UCCMALUSCIDE® is an orange - yellow fine powder, water dispersible containing a homogeneous mixture of the active ingredient with certain additives to improve serviceability.
Particle Size: Not less than 96% of the powder pass through 47um sieve.
PH: 7.2 - 7.5 (2ppm solution)
Active Ingredient% : 83.1% (w/w) niclosamide ethanolamine salt corresponding to 70%niclosamide content.
Suspensibility: 63% ( NLT 50% )
Amine Contents: 16 %
Light: A suspension of UCCMALUSCIDE® in water is certainly less influenced by strong light and ultraviolet radiation, when compared with other molluscicides as soduim pentachlorophinate.
Soluble salts in water: Variable concentrations of the common salts in water as calcium and magnesium do not significantly influence the effectiveness of UCCMALUSCIDE®.
UCCMALUSCIDE® retains its full activity at temperatures ranging between 14 and 35oC. However, its activity decreases as the temperature falls, due to reduced metabolism of the snails at low temperature.
