A microbiocidal bactericide, fungicide, algaecide and slimicide used in treating recirculating cooling water in industrial cooling systems, paper mills, metalworking cutting fluids, non-potable reverse osmosis systems, enhanced oil recovery systems, air-washer systems, industrial preservation applications and publicly owned treatment works.
Antimicrobial N-20 is a non-oxidizing, liquid dibromopropionamide formulation which effectively reduces the growth of microorganisms. It is a fast killing, broad-spectrum biocide for treating raw materials, processing water,and contaminated products.
In aqueous environments, Antimicrobial N-20 decomposes quickly. It degrades to only carbon dioxide,ammonia, and bromide ion. The entire process may take place with a half-life of less than one-half hour,depending on system conditions.
To obtain reliable and reproducible results, homogeneous distribution in the materials to be protected must be ensured by taking suitable measures in production (stirring, agitating, etc.).
As with any product, use of the products mentioned in this publication in a given application must be tested (including field testing, etc.) by the user in advance to determine suitability.
