Serving California, Oregon, Washington's Wine Country
Velcorin® is the trade name for dimethyldicarbonate (DMDC), a microbial control agent produced by LANXESS®. Since 1988, Velcorin has been used in the United States in wine, low-alcohol wine, and non-alcoholic wine as well as juice, juice sparklers, sports drinks, and ready-to-drink teas. Velcorin is very effective at low dosages against a broad range of yeast, bacteria and molds. Unlike other chemical preservatives, Velcorin is non-persistent and does not affect wine taste, bouquet or color. In addition, Velcorin can remain active for several hours (depending on hydrolysis rate) thereby helping to eliminate contamination from other sources such as bottles, closures and filling equipment.
Velcorin can be used in the following applications:
Velcorin must be used with an approved dosing system.
Scott Laboratories will only sell Velcorin to those using a LANXESS sanctioned dosing machine.
