DuPont Industrial Microbiocides


Industrial microbicides offer broad-spectrum protection against bacteria and fungi in paints, coatings, inks, stains, adhesives, wood, leather, and building and construction. They are EPA-registered and provide increased processing flexibility, ease of handling, and good compatibility in most aqueous compositions, which provide the flexibility to address diverse requirements, and boast advantages such as low toxicity, easy incorporation into latex emulsions, and excellent chemical stability in high-pH systems.

Problems Solved

Use limitation of in-can biocides and preservatives
Limited efficacy against certain bacterial or fungal species
Contamination and spoilage issues in industrial products and cleaning solutions
Preservation issues in high and low pH systems
Use restrictions of biocidal actives in commercial and consumer products
