Microban CCS

I'm doing a residential job this afternoon for a germophobe. I've used CCS in HWE in the past but never with encap. I'm using DS2 on her carpet and wondering if CCS could somehow compromise the polymer? Ph is about 9 on the CCS I think. Anyone use this product? Tried it with encap?

Microban CCS? I haven't looked at it.

Tell ya what. Mix some Microban along with Encap-Cean DS2 at their normal dilutions. Combine a 1/2 teaspoon of each of the two mixed products in a saucer. Let the mixture dry overnight. The next morning take a look at it to see if it crystallized. You'll want to compare the dry down of the mixed product to the dry down of normal Releasit to see whether the crystallization of the mixed version is comparable.

Sure, we could get more scientific about all this, but this simple dry down test will give you a basic overview of whether the two products can work together and still crystallize effectively.

I tried the experiment and it crystalizes beautifully. But I may just do a post spray with it just to make sure.
