Intercide™ DBF-10 SVC is a concentrate of 4, 5-dichloro-2-n-octyl-4-isothiazolin-3-one (DCOIT) 10% active in PVC resin carrier. This product, supplied as a homogeneous solid pellet, is recommended for use in Vinyl and other polymers requiring preservation against fungal and bacterial deterioration. DCOIT active has good resistance to UV and to water leaching, properties which render the product most suitable for use in a variety of outdoor applications based on calendering and extrusion techniques. Intercide™ DBF-10 SVC eliminates dusting problems normally encountered with solid biocides, and also negates the need for special handling that some liquids require. It is compatible with most thermoplastic resins and will not discolor or detract from the product’s chemical or physical properties. DBF-10 SVC can be incorporated into the resin compound at any convenient stage of the manufacturing process. The product can be fed into an extrusion operation in much the same way as pelletized color concentrates. Properly formulated compounds containing Intercide™ DBF-10 SVC will resist fungal and bacterial deterioration even after long term exposure to heat and severe weathering conditions.
