Storage/handling/storage stability:

12 months from date of delivery in unopened original packaging.
Temperature resistance
The ideal storage temperature is between 15 ° C and 25 ° C. Temporary deviations do not affect the product; the temperature should, however, not exceed 40 ° C. The product is not sensitive to frost. Lower temperatures can lead to partial crystallisation. The product can then be liquefied again from about 40 ° C. However, this is not necessary as the product can also be used as usual in a partially crystallised state.

Reaction in the air:

Nanoflex® Add Antibac is a reactive product. The containers must be closed immediately after use. The product is storable in sealed containers. The undiluted product should be protected against any slow penetration of humidity, otherwise it will no longer be soluble in water and can no longer be used. Properly handled, canisters can be opened repeatedly without a problem.
Further information on safety and ecology is available in a separate safety data sheet (SDS).

Certification:

Due to the intensive investment requirements of biocide regulations, the product is not marketed within the EU or USA / Canada.
Independent certificates or certifications must be obtained by the customer.

Special notice:

Butylhydroxytoluene (BHT) as well as other compounds, which are often used in packaging materials for textiles, can lead to discolouration, known as phenolic yellowing, in textiles equipped with Nanoflex Add-Antibac.
It must therefore be ensured that all packaging material such as films, staples, adhesives, labels, tags, overpacks and repackaging etc. are free from BHT or similarly acting substances.
