APPLICATION

AXCIDE LA 1209 is an excellent liquid biocide; it can inhibit the growth of microorganisms
effectively in water based emulsion painting, polymer emulsion, adhesives or glue, filler and sealant,
metal working fluids and wet state areas. The growth of microoganisms can be controlled
significantly with a low concentration of chemicals. The ideal chemical dosages is 0.05-0.40% of
total amount to be preserved, it also depends on susceptibility to microorganisms and storage
condition.
