New Product: BIOBAN™ BTCM Antimicrobial


DuPont Microbial Control’s New BIOBAN™ BTCM Antimicrobial in-can preservative for paints and building material products provides robust efficacy and formulation flexibility to comply with globally accepted active ingredient levels by combining BIT and CMIT/MIT actives. The one-drum formulation boosts efficiency by eliminating the need to mix actives from separate drums, simplifying logistics, and ease of use.

With a powerful combination of short and long-term preservatives, BIOBAN™ BTCM offers improved fungal protection over BIT alone, while still being flexible to meet all CMIT/MIT requirements in Europe for finished products. This stable formulation is designed to withstand the required shelf life while streamlining your manufacturing operations.

Robust Efficacy

  • Combination of two powerful, proven actives into one formula
  • BIT offers long term preservation with stability across broad pH and temperature ranges
  • CMIT/MIT improves the speed of kill and is effective against both fungi and bacteria

Formulation Flexibility

  • Dosage of active ingredients can be modified to adapt to globally accepted levels
  • Enhanced with the addition of CMIT/MIT to allow for lower BIT levels than typical single active BIT products
  • Flexibility to meet H317 requirements in Europe (<15 ppm CMIT/MIT A.I.)

Preservative Stability

  • Specifically designed to withstand required shelf-life throughout the supply chain
  • Proven stability after accelerating aging for 12 weeks at 40° and ambient temperature for 12 months
  • Two years of stability in progress

Better Logistics, Ease of Use

  • Two key active ingredients delivered in one container for optimization of transportation, storage, and dosage
  • Both actives contained in easy to handle drums and totes
