ROCIMA™ for In-Can Preservation

Aqueous-based and solvent-based


ROCIMA™ MB2X Biocide is an aqueous solution of BIT (1,2-Benzisothiazolin-3-one) and MIT (2-Methyl-4-isothiazolin-3-one) for the in-can preservation of technical products. ROCIMA MB2X is a VOC- and AOX-free preparation. It is formulated without the addition of any organic solvents, halogenated organic compounds, formaldehyde releasing compounds or bivalent metal ions, and therefore, it is highly compatible in most binder and paint systems. ROCIMA MB2X combines the well proven active ingredients BIT and MIT which can provide a long-term and broad efficacy spectrum.
