Nipacide BIT AS 20 is a stable, free flowing 20% aqueous dispersion of 1,2-benzisothiazolinone and is a low toxicity biocide developed for the complete in-can protection of water based products. Nipacide BIT AS 20 is effective against a wide range of microorganisms including gram positive and gram negative bacteria, yeast and fungi. Microorganisms grow at a rapid rate and without use of the correct biocide, numbers can increase dramatically.
Nipacide BIT AS 20 is recommended for preservation of a wide range of applications including water based, casein, animal bone based and PVA adhesives. Polymer emulsions including, SBR latex, Polyvinyl acetate and acrylic. Water based decorative paints, metal working fluids, Calcium Carbonate and Kaolin mineral slurries and concrete add-mixtures. Nipacide BIT AS 20 is glycol free and one of a number of aqueous based BIT Biocides that can be used if looking to minimize product VOC content. Nipacide BIT AS 20 is effective against a wide range of spoilage organisms and effective over a wide pH and temperature range. Nipacide BIT AS 20 should be the biocide of choice for products with pH >8 and production temperatures of >40 C.
