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.
The sludge cake produced from using Dimet as a heavy metal precipitant is compact, highly insoluble and easily dewatered.
