This handbook contains comprehensive information on more than 5000 trade names and generic chemicals and materials that are used in a broad range of formulations to prevent the contamination and decomposition of end products. Product degradation can be caused by exposure to oxygen, ozone, bacteria, molds, yeast, mildew, and fungi. The industries that depend on the proper selection of preserving chemicals and materials are diverse and include: plastics, elastomers, construction, paper/pulp, agriculture, textiles, paints and coatings, pharmaceutical, cosmetics, food, beverages.

This handbook contains comprehensive information on a variety of preservatives available from major chemical manufacturers and can expedite the material selection process for chemists, formulators and purchasing agents by providing the answers to these questions:

  • Is the agent capable of inhibiting the detrimental effects of oxygen, ozone, or microbes to the extent necessary?
  • Is the agent's overall physical and chemical attributes compatible with the product or system being protected?
  • Can the agent remain stable under storage conditions and for the application requirements?
  • Is its safety in production and handling acceptable?
  • Does its level of toxicity meet environmental regulations?
  • Does it meet cost requirements?
