What are Swimming Pool Chemicals

Swimming pool chemicals are used to treat certain kinds of algae and bacteria within swimming pools, the chemicals include various kinds of sanitizers and disinfectants.

What is actually in Swimming pool chemicals

With different disinfectants and sanitizers used in swimming pool chemicals the most common is “chlorine” which comes from chlorinating agents, this chemical dissolves as it is placed in water.

There is also chlorinating liquid, dry chlorine and liquid chlorine.


Types of chlorinating agents

There is actually two different types of chlorinating agents which are called organic chlorinating agents such as potassium dichloroisocyanurate, trichloroisocyanuric acid and sodium dichlorocyanurate as well as Inorganic chlorinating agents such as lithium hypochlorite, sodium hypochlorite and calcium hypochlorite.

These two chemicals are in fact not compatible with each other and when mixing or cross contamination occurs this can cause a form of explosive mixture. This can be caused simply when the same scoop is used for both chemicals without cleaning them.

Restore metal surfaces and convert rust and prime all in ONE step!

Case Chemicals wants everyone to be able to extend the life of your metal equipment by protecting it from rust and corrosion. What’s more, it’s an eco-friendly alternaive to sandblasting!  Rust occurs when the iron in steel oxidizes and returns to its original state, iron oxide. Through an innovative chemical conversion process, Corroseal Rust Converter converts rust into a stable substance, magnetite. It also primes the surface with a high quality latex metal primer at the same time, thus providing a one-step corrosion control system.

However as Case Chemicals have seen, not all rust converters perform as effectively and efficiently. Corroseal Rust Converting Primer was formulated specifically for use in the marine chemical industry – one of the harshest environments for any coatings, such as bridges, decks, railings, boat trailers, ferries, oar locks and shipping containers to name a few.

The transport and automotive world can benefit from corroseal when restoring vehicles, recreational equipment, utility trailers, ramps, floorboards, and quarter panels.

Hotel and general household can take advantage of garden tools restorations, lawnmovers lease of life, trailers, wrougt iron furniture, railings, decorative screens, pet housing, mailboxes and fences.

General industrial uses include storage and fuels tanks, structural steel, manufacturing equipment, farm equipment, fencing and gates, pipes and much more.

There are considerable differences in formulas and performance between the various rust treatment product, but Case Chemicals use corroseal – proven performance for over 25 years in incredibly harsh environments.

  • Corroseal Converts rust on contact – easy to apply so reduces labour time as no need to remove rust!
  • Primes old paint like a hard clear varnish
  • Can be top-coated with any colour
