This fact sheet summarizes the information in the RED document for reregistration case 3092, methylisothiazolinone. The Reregistration Eligibility Decision covers the two active ingredients 5-chloro-2-methyl-3 (2H)-isothiazolone and 2-methyl-3(2H)-isothiazolone. These two active ingredients occur together in the currently registered products in approximately a 3:1 ratio, respectively, and are commonly referred to as methylisothiazolinone. Methylisothiazolinone is used to control slime-forming bacteria, fungi, and algae in pulp/paper mills, cooling water systems, oil field operations, industrial process waters, and air washer systems and is incorporated into adhesives, coatings, fuels, metal working fluids, resin emulsions, paints, and various other specialty industrial products as a preservative. It is also used to control the growth of mold, mildew, and sapstain on wood products.
