CMIT/MIT
5-Chloro-2-methyl-4-isothiazolin-3-one
2-Methyl-4-isothiazolin-3-one
CMIT/MIT biocide is high performance, broad spectrum antimicrobial agents based on isothiazolone chemistry. CMIT/MIT is very effective at very low concentrations in controlling microorganisms causing microbial induced spoilage. No other preservatives controls a wider range of microorganisms over a wide range of pH at such low levels.
