Alternative formulations for product preservation
From 31 May 2020, new substance-specific concentration limits for methylisothiazolinone (MIT) will apply. To avoid additional hazard warnings on paints, varnishes, adhesives and construction chemicals, Vink Chemicals provides alternative combinations with comparably good efficacy.
Alternatively, Vink Chemicals recommends a mixture of CMIT (chloromethylisothiazolinone) and MIT. CMIT / MIT is effective at seven to ten ppm, which is below the critical 15 ppm. The mixture, which Vink Chemicals delivers in all common packaging sizes, not only offers at least ten years of future-proofing and labeling advantages, it is also significantly cheaper and has a broadband effect against yeasts, fungi, bacteria and even dangerous legionella. CMIT / MIT meets many regulatory requirements for indirect food contact.
