Intercide™ DBF-10 DIDP

Liquid 10% DCOIT biocide

Description

Intercide DBF-10 DIDP is a liquid antimicrobial; a 10% solution of 4, 5-dichloro-2-n-octyl-4-isothiazolin-3-one (DCOIT) in a non-volatile plasticizer carrier. Intercide DBF-10 DIDP antimicrobial is recommended for use in Vinyl film and sheeting, extruded profiles, plastisols, molded goods, organosols, fabric coatings and similar polymeric systems. Intercide DBF-10 DIDP antimicrobial is compatible with most polymer formulations and will not discolor or detract from the protected product’s chemical or physical properties. Intercide antimicrobial products can be conveniently incorporated into the formulation during the mixing or compounding processes. Avoid pre-mixing with mixed metal stabilizers, add separately and disperse well to avoid any reducing agent impacting the biocide stability. Intercide DBF-10 DIDP additive is recommended at concentrations between 0.8% and 2.0%. For outdoor applications, a level of 2.0% is recommended in Vinyl formulations for maximum effectiveness. Intercide DBF-10 DIDP contains 72.5% DIDP. Therefore, when using this product in a compound, the appropriate adjustment of plasticizer in the formulation must be made. For example, if 2% of Intercide DBF-10 DIDP is used, then a 1.45% reduction of plasticizer is required to maintain equivalent plasticity.
