Anti-Bacteria properties of BBIT
BBIT effect can be evaluated by available minimum inhibitory concentration. Minimum inhibitory concentrations does not mean the usage effect, but it stands for the broad-spectrum antimicrobial activity of BBIT. BBIT has more effect on controlling mildew and fungi erosion, especially in high temperature. BBIT is a good choice of fungicide for plastics, polyurethane and other polymer materials.
Application of BBIT
BBIT is recommended for use in applications with high conditions, especially outdoor with high UV environments. It can be used mainly for protection and surface anti-bacterial of PVC, silica gel, acrylic resin, polyolefin, polyurethane.
Applications include: shower curtain / fabric coating (such as: ski clothing, raincoats, tents) / Vinyl wallpaper and floor / pool substrate / conveyor / soles and uppers / roofing membrane / wire and catheter sheath material / auto accessories (such as: hood, door seals, shock absorbers, steering wheel) / foam material (such as: cushions, gaskets, insulation materials ) / Household Appliances liner (such as: washing machines, refrigerators) / tarpaulins and awnings / antibacterial wall floor paint.
Storage & TransportStable under normal storage conditions; If frozen,need thawing before use, the active ingredient are thermally stable, non-volatile
