Nipacide IPBC 30 is a 30% active IPBC clear glycolic fungicide, Nipacide IPBC 30 has been developed for fungal dry film protection of water based coatings.
Nipacide IPBC 30 can also be used for wet state, in-can fungal protection.
Nipacide IPBC 30 is effective against a wide range of fungal and yeast species and exhibits some activity against gram negative and gram positive bacteria.
Dry –film degradation in paints and decorative coatings can be avoided by using the correct dry-film fungicides at the most cost effective use level.
Ideal dry-film properties achieved by Nipacide IPBC3 30 include:
• High activity against a broad range of fungi and algae
• Excellent activity at relatively low use concentrations
• Carbendazim free
• pH stable
• UV stable
• Low water solubility
• Approved under the Biocidal Products Directive
• Cost effective protection
Nipacide IPBC 30 is recommended for protection of a wide range of coating applications including water based decorative paints, wood stains and colours.
Nipacide IPBC 30 can also be used in solvent based applications.
Increased antifungal activity can also be achieved by using Nipacide IPBC 30 for in-can use in adhesives grouts and sealants.
Nipacide IPBC 30 is effective against a wide range of spoilage organisms effective over a wide pH range. Nipacide IPBC 30 should not be used in products heated above 400 C.
Nipacide IPBC 30 should be evaluated in finished products at levels between 0.50% and 2.0% for dry film applications.
The level of protection will depend on many factors including the end destination of coating, relative humidity, sun strength and others and can be determined by evaluation by our team of microbiologists at the Clariant Microbiology facility.
For in-can antifungal activity Nipacide IPBC 30 should be evaluated between 0.10% and 0.30%.
Even though Nipacide IPBC 30 is designed for dry-film applications it also exhibits activity against a wide range of bacteria, fungi and yeast.
This can be demonstrated by the following MIC data.
MIC Levels Organism MIC (ppm)
Pseudomonas aeruginosa >1500
Proteus vulgaris 650
Escherichia coli 400
Staphylococcus aureus 150
Aspergillus niger <10
Penicillium mineoluteum <10
Geotrichum candidum <10
Candida albicans <25
Nipacide IPBC 30 is compatible with most raw materials used in the manufacture of industrial and decorative coatings.
Nipacide IPBC 30 compatibility should always be checked and evaluated before use.
