DOWICIL™ Preservatives

DOWICIL™ preservatives are broad spectrum biocides that offer protection against microbial growth in a variety of water-based products and applications, including adhesives, cosmetics, metal working fluids, paints, pulp, paper, inks, latex, and textiles, as well as products for agriculture, oil extraction, and building and construction industries. Their unique ability to remain highly effective over a broad pH range (2 to 12.5) enables easy elimination of several process steps. They are excellent in-can preservatives and in-process biocides and are highly effective at low concentrations and compatible with many formulations.
