New! ROCIMA™ 80 Industrial Algaecide - A Customized Solution for Algal Control

Published on 2007-05-14. Author : SpecialChem

Philadelphia, PA -- Rohm and Haas has received U.S. EPA registration* for ROCIMA™ 80 Industrial Algaecide, the newest addition to the ROCIMA-brand portfolio of biocides for paint and coatings. ROCIMA™ 80 enables customers to complement their existing ROCIMA™ biocides to increase protection from algal growth, with an easy-to-use liquid formulation. ROCIMA™ 80 is a water-based formulation containing 33% active cybutryne, a very effective algaecide.

"We are pleased we can offer this targeted protection for coatings and building materials," says Mike Sheehan, Business Manager for Biocides in North America. "Algae are prone to grow on cementitious substrates, such as stucco and fiber cement as well as on roof coatings. ROCIMA™ 80 will be especially important for certain geographies, such as the coastal areas of the SE and NW United States, which are more likely to have to algae problems."

ROCIMA™ 80 offers optimal protection when combined with other ROCIMA-brand biocides. It does not contain or release formaldehyde, and there is minimal VOC contribution.

Rohm and Haas offers a full range of biocide solutions to protect coatings and building materials under the ROCIMA, ROZONE, KATHON, KORDEK and SKANE brands.

*U.S. EPA Registration (707-312)
