Irgarol is a highly specific and effective inhibitor of photosynthesis. This makes it ideal, combined with its very low water solubility, for use in long-life antifouling coatings for marine applications to prevent the growth of algae.
Dangerous Goods Info:
Not a dangerous good if item is equal to or less than 1g/ml and there is less than 100g in the package
Irgarol 1051 suppliers told us tha this product is one of the most widely used marine antifouling agents. The presence of Irgarol 1051 has been detected in natural waters around the world, and its highest concentration in the water environment has been detected in Singapore waters. It is 4.2 mg · L-1. Its existence seriously affects the survival and growth of non-target organisms, and can change the population composition and abundance of ecological communities, seriously threatening the health and safety of aquatic ecosystems.
