ROCIMA™ for In-Can Preservation

Aqueous-based and solvent-based


ROCIMA™ MBX Biocide is an aqueous solution of BIT (1,2-Benzisothiazolin-3-one) and MIT (2-Methyl-4-isothiazolin-3-one) at a ratio of 1:1 for the in-can preservation of technical products. ROCIMA MBX 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 MBX combines the well proven active ingredients BIT and MIT which can provide a long-term and broad efficacy spectrum. ROCIMA MBX is based on active ingredients that comply with European and North American food contact regulations, e.g. coatings and adhesives, provided that the customary dosage rates are not exceeded.
