Cationic Reagent Quat 188
Cationic Reagen Quat 188 is an aqueous solution of
N-(3-chloro-2-hydroxypropyl) trimethylammonium chloride.
The reaction of Quat 188 with select natural and synthetic polymers
results in a cationically charged polymer.
It is this interaction between the positively charged nitrogen and
the many negatively
charged materials that make Quat 188 modified products suitable as
dry strength additives for paper,
retention aids, flocculants, electroconductive resins, asphalt
emollients and various surfactant applications.
Introducing Quat 188 into polymeric systems imparts three important
Increased Cationic Polarity: Cationic groups improve adhesion to
