Colorless liquid with antimicrobial properties.

Isothiazolinones are a group of chemical compounds containing a 5-membered heterocyclic ring with an isothiazole moiety. They are commonly used as biocides, fungicides, and preservatives in various industrial and consumer products such as paints, adhesives, and personal care products. They are effective against a wide range of microorganisms and are known for their strong antimicrobial properties.

Water Treatment

Isothiazolinones are widely used as biocides for controlling microbial growth in industrial water treatment systems, including cooling towers, boilers, and reverse osmosis membranes. They are effective against a wide range of microorganisms and can be used alone or in combination with other biocides. Isothiazolinones can also be used for the disinfection of drinking water and wastewater, as well as for the treatment of swimming pool water. Due to their strong antimicrobial properties, isothiazolinones are a popular choice for industrial water treatment applications where maintaining water quality and preventing microbial growth are essential.

Pulp & Paper

Isothiazolinones are used in the pulp and paper industry as biocides to control microbial growth in the water systems. The growth of bacteria and fungi in the paper machine can lead to the formation of slime, which can cause operational issues and product quality problems. Isothiazolinones are effective against a broad spectrum of microorganisms and can be used in combination with other biocides to achieve better results. They are also used in the treatment of process water and wastewater in the paper mills to prevent the growth of microorganisms that can cause foul odors and corrosion in the system.
