Published on 2003-06-02. Author : SpecialChem


Avecia Biocides has announced US EPA registration for its new Vanquish 100 plastics antimicrobial.

Based on a dual-purpose preservative and effects molecule, the antimicrobial has broad spectrum activity and incorporates the active nBBIT (N-Butyl-1,2-benzisothiazolin-3-one). In preservation mode, it prevents deterioration of plastics while its effects capabilities prevent bacterial and fungal surface growth.

Applications span a wide range of polymers, including polypropylene, polyethylene, PVC, silicones and polyurethanes. Proven product applications include preservation of polyurethanes in shoe soles, automotive polymers and silicone sealants, and antimicrobial protection of PVC products.
