  • White Phenyl formulation for household cleaning

    Posted by Gobel on December 4, 2018 at 12:08 pm

    I have seen people making white phenyl using various ingredients and percentages; following is the one that seems sensible;

    Pine oil: 65% by vol
    OP 95 / Pine Oil emulsifier: 25% by vol
    Disinfectant: 10%

    Please advise which disinfectants can be used for such purposes with pine oil?
    Any other suggestions?

    10% disinfectant??? You are going to kill a lot of fish with that formula, my friend. Pine oil itself has disinfectant properties, by the way, but if you have to use a terpene-soluble agent, try p-chloro-m-xyenol.

    Chloroxylenol is a good option. Thanks for the input, should i add 2-3% and increase Pine oil?

    @chemicalmatt please advise, I calculated 65% by vol pine oil for my mix, which was supposed to be 22 - 26% conc, but i have received 65% conc from the manufacturer now. What do i do now? 
    Should i decrease the % of Pine oil and increase Emulsifying agent?
