Materials and methods

Test guideline
no guideline followed

Two samples of the same lot number of Kordek 573T Industrial Microbiocide were submitted for analysis at zero time, one month and three month time points.
GLP compliance:
Type of method:
ambient testing

Test material

Test material form:
other: solid
Details on test material:
All Series 63 characterizations of Kordek 573T Industrial Microbicide were done using the Technical Grade Active Ingredient (TGAI). The test material consisted of >95% 2-methyl-4-isothiazol-3-one. Impurities ranged from 0.1 to 1.0% and total less than 5.0%.
Specific details on test material used for the study:
All samples were prepared in a glove box that was purged with nitrogen (relative humidity was <10%). Each sample was melted, and aliquots were transferred into dry, preweighed vials. The sample weight was determined by difference.

The working standard used is RH-573, Lot AAP12269C, 48.7% in Propylene Glycol. The control sample used was Batch 1935 from Technical Grade Lot # 1022 = 51.8%. The samples were prepared in duplicate and each prep was injected in duplicate. The control sample was prepped in duplicate and the preps were analyzed twice, distributed throughout the sequence.

Results and discussion

The test material was stable over a 3 month time period. There was no change in color and physical state of the test material over the three months. In addition, there was no change in the storage container over the three month period.
