DIMET™ | Sodium Dimethyldithiocarbamate Solution

For water treatment and soil remediation

Sodium dimethyldithiocarbamate is highly effective at capturing and removing metals from the environment, which makes Dimet a particularly useful metal precipitating agent for waste water streams and soil remediation applications.

Dimet is effective over a wide pH range and, when used as recommended, provides nearly complete precipitation of metals even in the presence of other chelating or sequestering agents.
