Biocides for Industrial Use
Industry


Iodine-based alternatives with a lower environmental risk and toxicological profile, have replaced toxic biocides such as pentachlorophenol (PCP) and tributyltinoxide (TBTO). This allows for control of microbial degradation of industrial products. Many diverse applications require preservatives: including cosmetics, paints, adhesives, wood preservation, metalworking fluids, leather processing, inks and starches.
