Outlast Mold-Buster is for Exterior and Interior Coatings. Stops mold, mildew, and algae growth on paints, stains, coatings, and adhesives. Outlast® Mold-Buster™ Additive is an EPA-registered product. Its active ingredient is IPBC (3-iodo-2-propynyl butylcarbamate), a broad-spectrum fungicide with a distinguished history of use. Although a primary use is as a preservative for paints and coatings, it is also used in industrial fluids, plastics, textiles, inks, HVAC ducts, and cosmetic and personal care products. There are more than 50 registered pesticide products containing IPBC. Each 7.5 oz. container of Mold-Buster additive treats up to 5 gallons of paint or stain or, it can be measured out in single gallon doses through the "view finder" strip on the side of the container. It does not alter the color of the coating and its thin viscosity allows easy mixing. The formulation is freeze-thaw stable, and has low odor and low VOC. Suitable for use in oil and water-based coatings, Mold-Buster should still be working hard to protect the paint film after 3 years or more. Made in the USA. Mold-Buster Data | MSDS
