Pharmaceutical Ion Exchange Resin
TC004 is also used to separate and extract antibiotics and amino acids.
In sodium form TC004 is widely used for water softening to reduce total hardness. In hydrogen form, it is used for water demineralization. TC004 is also used to separate and extract antibiotics and amino acids.
