August 5, 2009
CONSETT, UK - Thomas Swan & Co. Ltd., Consett, County Durham, UK, an established European manufacturer of TCMTB (2-(Thiocyanomethylthio) benzothiazole), has been developing a portfolio of biocide products under its Casacide brand for use in North America. The final product in this range, Casacide T100, was granted approval by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) on July 13.
“There are huge opportunities for Casacide in North America”, said Chuck Van Fleet of Swan Chemical Inc., the company’s American subsidiary. “The market has not had a wide choice of suppliers, and we come to the market with a 20-year track record of quality and expertise in this sector.”
Casacide is a broad-spectrum biocide that is easy to handle, without any hydrocarbon solvents, and produces stable emulsions on dilution with water – including both acidic and mildly akali solutions. It offer high performance in industrial systems for water treatment, paper processing, leather tanning and paints manufacture.
