Vinkocide® DC

Broadband biocide

Vinkocide® DC is a formulation of 5-chloro-2-methyl-2H-isothiazol-3-one (CIT) with 2-methyl-2H-isothiazol-3-one (MIT) and dodecylguanidine hydrochloride (DGH).

Area of use

Vinkocide® DC was developed to optimally supplement the spectrum of activity of the CIT/MIT mixture. It is used to preserve water-based and water-dilutable chemical/technical products as in-can preservatives, and protective media for liquids in cooling and processing systems.

Product properties

Vinkocide® DC has a broad antimicrobial spectrum of activity against bacteria, fungi and yeasts, and is free of formaldehyde, formaldehyde releasers, phenols and heavy metals. This biocide formulation can be used in many cases where other products fail, features good compatibility with other raw materials and exhibits outstanding long-term effectiveness.


Vinkocide® DC penetrates the cells of the micro-organisms and reacts with vital cell elements in order to inactivate important substrates and enzymes that are essential for the function of the cell. Vinkocide® DC prevents the microbial decay of products and the resulting processes such as phase separation, unpleasant odours, gas formation, changes in viscosity and the formation of harmful toxins.
