CMIT/MIT-1.5 is compatible with most common binders. It is generally advisable to check compatibility prior to any application to a special case.
Temperature: up to 40°C (short periods to 60°C), pH range: 4 to 9
Application and Activity
CMIT/MIT-1.5  is a wet state preservative with a very wide application field such as paints,plasters, adhesives, inks, dispersion and emulsion binders and aqueous technical products in general. It can be used alone or in combination with other active ingredients such as methylisothiazolone (MIT-10) or formaldehyde donors.
CMIT/MIT-1.5  is a proven slimicide in paper manufacturing. CMIT/MIT-1.5 contains neither formaldehyde nor cationic or phenolic substances.Therefore, it is particularly suited for use in products not compatible with these substances.
CMIT/MIT-1.5  has a broad spectrum of activity. It is effective against gram-positive and gram-negative, aerobic and anaerobic bacteria as well as against mould and yeast.
The number of technical products being preserved with CMIT/MIT-1.5 is increasing steadily and it is not always possible to predict its suitability. The optimum use should be established by a preliminary experiment. In critical cases, predilution with water is often helpful. The optimum dosage rate of CMIT/MIT-1.5 depends upon the degree of contamination and the susceptibility of the product to be preserved.
Occasionally, the degree of contamination exhibits seasonal fluctuation, so that a periodical determination of germ counts can assist in choosing the optimum dosage rate.Therefore, the ranges of concentrations listed below should be taken as general guidelines only
Binders 0.05 - 0.3%
Other products 0.05 - 0.15%
Storage, Handling and Disposal
Please refer to the Safety Data Sheet of this product for precise handling instructions.In general, avoid eye and skin contact, wear safety goggles, gloves and protective clothing.In case of eye or skin contact despite precautionary measures, wash immediately andthoroughly with plenty of warm water and obtain medical attention.The legal requirements prevailing in your country, especially on working hygiene and in the avoidance of accidents, must be observed.
CMIT/MIT-1.5 Biocide should be stored in closed original containers in a cool place, but not below 0°C. At temperatures below 0°C solidification of the product may occur. If the product does freeze, allow it to return to room temperature and it will turn liquid again. Bioactivity is unaffected by freezing and melting.
