ISP: In-Can Preservative

March 28, 2011

Nuosept® BIC is a high-performing, formaldehyde-free in-can preservative offered as a “drop-in” replacement to formaldehyde-containing preservatives previously used in Europe for protection against microorganisms. The water-based, zero-VOC, formaldehyde-free preservative contains three active substances (BIT, IPBC, CMIT/MIT) that reportedly work synergistically to preserve products against a variety of microorganisms.

Engineered with quick kill activity, Nuosept BIC will be marketed as a universal biocide for wet-state preservation, with the added benefit of plant hygiene. The material is commercially available in Europe for formulators of coatings, adhesives, ready-mix building materials and construction chemicals that seek to market Ecolabel-compliant products without compromising the quality of wet-state preservation.
