- INCI Name: Benzisothiazolinone
- Chemical Name: 1,2-benzisothiazolin 3-one
- CAS No: 2634-33-5
Benzisothiazolinone (BIT-20) is a 20% aqueous dipropylene glycol solution of 1,2-Benzisothiazolin-3-one. It is a broad spectrum, formaldehyde-free, in-can biocide for the preservation of industrial water-based products against spoilage from bacteria, yeast and fungi.
BIT-20 is effective against a wide range of microorganisms including gam positive and gram negative bacteria, yeast and fungi and compatible with most raw materials used in the manufacture of industrial products.
BIT-20 is effective against a wide range of spoilage organisms and effective over a wide PH and temperature range. BIT-10 should be the biocide of choice for products with PH>8 and production temperatures of >40C.
