OIT- 45 is a low-toxicity biocide in glycol solution for protection against yeast, bacterial and fungal
growth in the wet state. It is stable over a broad pH range and temperature range. It is stable under
ordinary conditions but is light sensitive.
OIT-45 can be used to control the growth of a wide spectrum of microorganisms – bacteria, mould
fungi and yeasts, in oil-based paint, latex, coating, lubricant, leather chemicals, and wood preservatives.
