Biocides & Actives

Robust preservation of finished liquid formulations in a cost-effective manner is crucial for Household & Institutional Cleaning formulators. In Latin America and Asia Clariant offers a focused product line, under the trade names Nipacide® and Nipaguard® that undertakes this task on a day-to-day basis, providing excellent preservation adjusted to the industry's needs.

And under the Dodigen® line, Clariant has a complete line of biocides for disinfectant formulations.

As the industry lowers washing temperatures in its search for optimal energy usage in the household, novel technologies such as Clariant's silver-technology-based JMAC offers innovative solutions to help protecting valuable garments from bacteria and odor.

  • JMAC Composite PG

    JMAC Composite PG is a preservative active with antimicrobial properties that reduces the spread of bacteria over the long term. The attractiveness of JMAC’s antimicrobial protection is reinforced by its low toxicity, non-sensitizing performance and very low environmental impact. JMAC meets Ecolabel standards for use in paints and coatings. Paint and coatings manufacturers benefit from easy and economical formulation. The JMAC biocides are effective at very small ppm addition levels and offer low viscosity liquid dispersion. Safe handling is assured through the non-flammability, non-corrosive nature of JMAC. For In-can preservation, the excellent thermal and pH stability of JMAC biocides means they can be used in a wide range of industrial applications, such as polymer emulsions, paints, sealants and adhesives.
