  • Dosage

    • 5 – 4.0% on total formulation

    Borchi® Gel 0434 is easy to use and can be added at any stage of the formulation. Pre-thinning is possible but generally not required. The exact dosage should be experimentally determined.

  • Storage

    Protect from the effects of weathering and store at temperatures between 5 and 30 °C. Once opened, containers should be resealed immediately after each removal of the product.
