The best in quats

FeF Chemicals’ own innovative synthesis process ensures a very high level of purity of liquid and crystalline products such as benzalkonium chloride, strong cetrimide solution, cetrimide, cetrimonium bromide (CTAB) and myristalkonium chloride (MKC).

By using raw materials of high purity and following the company’s stringent quality system, products are particularly suited to applications within the pharmaceutical industry. They act as preservatives in many ophthalmic, nasal and oral drugs, and as active ingredients in a variety of topical and antiseptic solutions, ointments and creams.

Thanks to a closely controlled production process, reducing batch variation to a minimum, FeF Chemicals is highly valued by the diagnostic reagent sector. Combined with the high purity, the company’s quats have proven to be significantly superior to other less pure compounds.

If the required product is not in the standard assortment, FeF Chemicals can design customised products. Its flexible production process can meet customer demands for special chain-length distribution and/or solutions of quats mixed in various ratios.

The company is fully aware of the importance of the registration phase for a drug within the pharmaceutical industry. As a consequence, it offers an extensive range of documentation on its pharmaceutical-grade products, such as multicompendial analysis and access to regulatory documentation.

FeF Chemicals ensures the best possible service and fast preparation of documentation, such as Drug Master Files for its pharmaceutical-grade products. In order to further facilitate the drug registration process for customers, the company offers access to its Certificates of Suitability according to the Monographs of the European Pharmacopoeia, for benzalkonium chloride solution 50%, benzalkonium chloride (95%) and cetrimide.
