Household, Industrial & Institutional

Dishwashing liquids, liquid laundry detergents, fabric softeners and general purpose cleaners are subject to microbial spoilage when they are manufactured and stored without being preserved. In order to protect these products and to extend their shelf lives, LANXESS offers the detergent industry a broad selection of suitable preservatives. Our preservatives are formulated with various active ingredients and combinations so that you can pick the right formulation according to your individual need.

Our Products for the preservation of HI & I products



  • Liquid preservative based on 1,2-Benzisothiazolin-3-one (BIT) and Tetramethylolacetylenediurea (TMAD).
  • For the preservation of aqueous technical preparations such as aqueous coatings, plasters, polymer dispersions, synthetic adhesives, pigment slurries, concrete additives or cleaners and detergents.
