SANITIZED AG launches new product Sanitized® BDC with dual function as in-can preservative and for product sanitation for the paint industry
Burgdorf/CH, 4 May 2023: Swiss-based antimicrobial solutions provider, SANITIZED AG, has launched Sanitized® BDC, a powerful triple-action product designed from three active ingredients, to protect aqueous systems such as polymer dispersions and architectural paints. Sanitized® BDC offers both product sanitation and in-can preservation for long-term stability. Sanitized® BDC offers a welcome alternative to zinc pyrithione or a pure CMIT/MIT based product for markets with tight biocide regulations.
Sanitized® BDC boasts a unique combination of three active ingredients, DBNPA (2.2-Dibrom-2-cyanacetamide), Bronopol (2-Bromo-2-nitro-1.3-propanediol), and CMIT/MIT (Chlormethylisothiazolinone/Methylisothiazolinone), which have different modes of action and thereby result in optimal efficacy. Sanitized® BDC is therefore effective at low concentrations and can reduce manufacturing run times, simplify processes, and increase product safety.
In addition to its broad spectrum of efficacy Sanitized® BDC provides headspace protection within the packaging, making it suitable for long-term in-can preservation whilst at the same time being fast-acting. The pH stability range is from 2 to 9. These product features make Sanitized® BDC also an ideal product as water disinfection for paint manufacturing. The product offers several advantages over similar products. It is process-, shear-, and heat-stable under normal manufacturing conditions, allowing application during any process step. The market demands zinc pyrithione free products and this new product meets this demand and has no skin sensitization (H317) at the recommended dosage.
Sanitized® BDC is ideal for in-can preservation of polymer dispersions and paints. Test results have demonstrated that Sanitized® BDC, at an active ingredient concentration of 0.10%, effectively and durably inhibits the growth of bacteria, yeasts, and fungi.
The product is available now in Europe and comes with a range of performance advantages, including excellent color stability and product stability, and minimal environmental impact.
