In-Can Preservation for Paints, Adhesives and Related Products
Chemical Name: 1,2-Benzisothiazolin-3-oneCas No.:2634-33-5GeneralBIT 85% biocide is a broad spectrum microbicide for the preservation of industrial water-based products against the attack of microorganisms. BIT 85% Powder containing 99% W/W 1,2-Benzisothiazolin-3-one.BIT 85% is specifically recommended for the preservation of polymer emulsions, paints and coatings, adhesives, and printing inks.Typical PropertiesThese properties are typical but do not constitute specifications
White to light yellow powder
Content of Moisture (%)
15%+0.5%Product Benefits1. Broad spectrum activity in high pH systems, controlling bacteria, fungi and yeasts.2. Stable in the presence of amines.3. Non specific mode of action, resulting in reduced microbial resistance potential.4. Ease of handling due to its liquid form and good compatibility in most aqueous compositions.5. Excellent performance with co-biocides like CMI/MI, bronopol or formaldehyde releasers, which allow performance enhancements and cost reduction.6. The active ingredient is non-volatile and has a comparatively high heat stability which allows the incorporation in fluids which are still hot.7. High purity active ingredient, made evident by its clear light colour.Antimicrobial Properties
