IMCD Expands Biocide Offerings with DuPont Industrial Biosciences

IMCD and DuPont Industrial Biosciences have expanded their distribution partnership in Europe for biocides used in industrial preservation and homecare applications, including ROCIMA™, BIOBAN™, and KATHON™.

This expansion furthers partnership on sales, marketing, and distribution of biocides that started 35-years ago between IMCD (then AWL) and DuPont (previously ACIMA), and strengthens both IMCD’s extensive portfolio as well as DuPont Industrial Biosciences’ route to market, the companies stated.

Dow and DuPont are combing their portfolios. Dow Microbial Control is now aligned under DuPont Industrial Biosciences, a business unit of Specialty Products. IMCD will distribute the company’s biocides in Europe and South Africa across the coatings, construction, homecare, and industrial and institutional cleaning markets. IMCD will provide regulatory support and microbiological laboratory support, provided by BioPreserv in Grasse, France.

“We are pleased to announce the extension of our global partnership with IMCD, which now includes the European biocides market,” says Jeroen Ingelbrecht, sales director EMEA, Industrial Biosciences DuPont Industrial Biosciences. “IMCD’s experience and deep knowledge positions them well to provide personalized support to our customer on the ground. The fact that IMCD provides formulatory, regulatory, and technical expertise – including microbial challenge-tests and regular updates on topics like BPR, CLP, MIT-free, and more – sets them apart in the industry and makes IMCD our partner of choice.”
