Anti Scaling Agent
Anti-scaling agents help prevent mineral deposits (from water) building up on the inside surfaces of your washing machine and dishwasher. It's important to prevent these deposits which are also known as scaling or fouling because it can damage or weaken the effective functioning of your machine.
There are 3 types of anti-scaling agents to tackle different tasks.
1. Acids - react with existing scaling to make it more soluble, so that it can be dissolved and washed away.
2. Chelators - are a type of builder that prevent scaling by binding water hardness ions present in water.
3. Biocides - prevent microbial and algal growth.
