 IV. Application
    1. Application Fields
    ① Hospital and common medicinal use
    PCMX can be applied to preoperative skin degerming, sterilization of medical equipment, and daily cleaning of the surfaces of equipment and hard objects. To prevent cross infection, it can be used for producing medical antibacterial soaps, athletes foot bactericides and general first-aid medicines. PCMX can be prepared into liquid, anhydrous hand cleaner, powder, cream, lotions and other preparation types, and can also be used as a preservative in other medicines.

    Glue and adhesive: PCMXC can prevent microorganisms decomposing and producing peculiar smell, clogging the filter and corroding metals, and the product failure.
    Leather treatment: PCMX can prevent molding and resist the attack of bacteria and fungus (particularly for salted leather, plant leather and salted or air-dried green hide).
    2. Dosage
    Generally used at a concentration of 0.2 ~ 5.0% (w / w).
    3. Application method
    PCMX is added into alcohol, benzene, ether and other solutions, and then is mixed with other materials. Some nonionic or anionic surfactants can completely dissolve PCMX without the generation of any clusters.
