Biocides in Waterborne Adhesives: How to Select in Today's Regulatory Environment?

This is a Past Course

Recorded on Nov 1, 2017

Enhance microbial resistance of your waterborne adhesives that meet today's regulatory & performance demands (greater shelf-life, higher resistance to service environments...) by renewing your biocide selection strategy..

Edward Petrie will share his vast knowledge & practical tips to help you understand how biocides work and how to select them depending on final application, targeted microorganism(s)... while meeting required regulatory standards.

Why should you view this course?

Increasing regulatory pressure over environmental concerns is forcing you to renew your biocide / preservative selection & formulation strategy. And we know, that selecting the right one is a very difficult task considering the specificity of final application & targeted microorganism(s). Additionally, the wide offering of newer biocides (non-phthalate, non-migrating, more broad-spectrum, dry film biocides...) does make the task tougher! Join this course and:

  1. Understand how biocides / preservatives / fungicides work & how regulations are affecting the biocide industry

  2. Overcome the difficulty to select the right biocide as per your specific application, targeted microorganism(s), performance & regulatory demands...

  3. Learn how to increase the shelf-life & resistance to service environment of your WB adhesives by getting practical tips from Ed Petrie
