Nipacide BIT 20 is a glycol based solution; low toxicity biocide developed for the complete in-can protection of water based products. 
Nipacide BIT 20 is effective against a wide range of microorganisms including gram positive and gram negative bacteria, yeast and fungi. 
Microorganisms grow at a rapid rate and without use of the correct
biocide, numbers can increase dramatically. 


Benzisothiazolinone (BIT) is a organic compound with the formula C6H4SN(H)CO. 
BIT is widely used as a preservative and antimicrobial.

Benzisothiazolinone has a microbicide and a fungicide mode of action. It is widely used as a preservative, for example in:

emulsion paints, caulks, varnishes, adhesives, inks, and photographic processing solutions
home cleaning and car care products; laundry detergents, stain removers and fabric softeners;
industrial settings, for example in textile spin-finish solutions, leather processing solutions, preservation of fresh animal hides and skins
agriculture in pesticide formulations
gas and oil drilling in muds and packer fluids preservation.

NIPACIDE BIT 20 is a broad spectrum biocide for the preservation of industrial water-based products against spoilage from bacteria, yeasts and fungi.
NIPACIDE BIT 20 is a 20% aqueous dipropylene glycol solution of 1,2-benzisothiazolin-3-one.

Applications

NIPACIDE BIT 20 is effective in a wide range of industrial aqueous-based products. 

Application areas include:
• Synthetic polymer emulsions
• Emulsion paints
• Water-based adhesives
• Household products
• Printing inks
• Paper coating compositions
• Metal working fluids
• Agricultural pesticide dispersions
• Aqueous mineral and pigment slurries
• Tape joint compounds

Antimicrobial Properties

The levels of NIPACIDE BIT 20 needed to prevent the growth of problem micro-organisms are listed in Table 1.

MICs do not represent effective use levels but do indicate the broad spectrum of activity of NIPACIDE BIT 20.

NIPACIDE BIT 20 has a non-specific mode of action which means that bacterial resistance is very unlikely to occur.

Detailed information on the mode of action of NIPACIDE BIT 20 is available on request

Amount to Use
NIPACIDE BIT 20 should be added to the system as early in the process as possible. 
The concentration of NIPACIDE BIT 20 required to adequately preserve your product depends on several factors. 
These include the susceptibility of the system to microbiological degradation, the extent to which micro-organisms can gain access, the species involved, pH, temperature, and length of time for which protection is required.

A range of concentrations and applications is recommended

in Table 3; however, it is recommended that a testing programme be undertaken to determine the most costeffective dose for your application.

Testing should take into account chemical compatibility/stability, plant hygiene conditions, susceptibility of the product to contamination, and the typical organisms involved.
