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 required shelf life while streamlining your manufacturing operations.

See the BIOBAN BTCM EPA label for more information.


Robust Efficacy
