Titriplex Decalcifying substance

From:louise renton

Tritiplex is a "brand" name for an EDTA(ethylene diamine tetra acetic acid) 
salt. If I recall, this substance acts as a chelating agent - atttracting Ca 
molecules and complexing with them. The use of such as agent is that it is 
gentler on the tissues, but markedly slower than some of the acidic agents.
Hope this helps, i am sure that some of the more chemistry inclined 
histonetters will be able to expand on my simplified explanation.

Best regards
