ISP PERFORMANCE CHEMICALS: Microbiocides

January 25, 2010

This company now offers a series of “greener” biocides under the Nuosept® trade name that function as broad spectrum protection products for water-based industrial formulations such as coatings and adhesives.

Nuosept BMc 422, described as a greener biocide than previous generations of Nuosept products, features a synergistic combination of isothizolones for the prevention of Gram (-) and Gram (+) bacteria as well as fungi.

A second product called Nuosept W Concentrate is classified as a low-environmental-impact biocide formulated with CMIT/MIT and Bronopol for broad spectrum protection at low-use levels.

Both biocides prevent microbial spoilage without contributing to the VOC or formaldehyde of the products preserved.
