Intercide™ OBF-10 ESO is an antimicrobial solution of 2-n-octyl-4-isothiazolin-3-one (OIT) in a nonvolatile plasticizer carrier. Intercide™ OBF-10 ESO is an effective fungicide for use in Vinyl, polyurethane and other polymeric compositions requiring fungal protection. Low levels of Intercide™ OBF-10 ESO will provide long term preservation against fungal attack and will help prevent surface growth, permanent staining, embrittlement and premature product failure. Intercide™ OBF-10 ESO is recommended for Vinyl film and sheeting, extruded profiles, plastisols, molded goods, organosols, fabric coatings, urethanes and urethane foams, and similar polymeric systems. This antimicrobial is compatible with most polymer formulations and will not discolor or detract from the protected product’s chemical or physical properties. Intercide™ OBF-10 ESO solution can be conveniently incorporated into the formulation during the mixing or compounding processes. Typically Intercide™ OBF-10 ESO is used at concentrations from 1% to 2%. For outdoor applications, a level of 2% is recommended in polymer formulations for maximum effectiveness.
