Specialty Biocide Opportunities for Adhesive Applications

Published on 2008-03-05. Author : SpecialChem

Rhein Chemie Corporation offers custom packaging solutions for a 95% pure Diiodomethyl-ptolysulfone antimicrobial agent useful in controlling microbial degradation in end-use adhesive applications for residential, commercial and industrial construction.

Rhein Chemie helps ensure the integrity of biocides in adhesive applications by offering safe handling solutions that are backed by a computer checked weight to a maximum ±1.0% variance. The weighing accuracy is certified through SPC/SPQ data collection ensuring exact material loading requirements critical to the end users process.

Once the antimicrobial pre-weigh is verified, the product is heat sealed (using low melt bags) and printed with a product code and lot number (#), ensuring total material traceability, which upon request, can contain customer specific coding. The sealed pre-weigh reduces the risk of exposure and ensures accurate loading for batch-to-batch consistency.

"Our customers were searching for effective and efficient ways to package their biocides so that they can stand behind the quality of their product," said Tim Higgins, Business Development Rubber Americas. "Our technology and strict quality controls are a perfect solution."
