How to beat the little guys


The most widely used biocide in the global paper industry is Ashland’s Spectrum™ XD3899 microbiocide. It drastically reduces microbial activity throughout the papermaking process, providing a truly clean machine.

That’s a big deal because microorganisms can cause all kinds of havoc for papermakers, who are seeing growing global demand for printing and writing paper, tissue and towels, and paperboard.

Our Spectrum XD3899 microbiocide is produced onsite at the mill using our patented dosing equipment, feeding the biocide only when needed. That’s economical in the short term and great for reducing corrosion and downtime in the long term.
