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 products 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.
