RUCO®-BAC ZPY is an antimicrobial product. As with other antimicrobial products, the chemical basis is not crucial for its classification as biocide. However, marketing attributes of such a product (such as antimicrobial, antibacterial, bacteriostatic, amongst others) are decisive. These marketing attributes as well as the positioning of the customers’ final articles in the respective consumer market are crucial for substrates functionalised with RUCO®-BAC ZPY.

Due to the fact that the use of articles finished with RUCO®-BAC ZPY can vary extremely, the customer of RUCO®-BAC ZPY himself should examine, test and conduct marketing research - despite the information, recommendations, test results, sample, care, labelling and processing instructions as well as marketing advice provided by RUDOLF GROUP. Therefore, every customer of RUCO®-BAC ZPY is responsible for his own specific use, further processing, labelling, marketing (see above-mentioned marketing attributes) etc. of substrates finished with RUCO®-BAC ZPY. RUDOLF GROUP - Rudolf GmbH as well as its respective national subsidiaries, representations, etc. - does not assume any guarantee and/or liability for consequences of examinations and tests or similar omitted by the customer. Furthermore, RUDOLF GROUP does not assume any liability for non-authorised additional formulations of RUCO®-BAC ZPY.
