Troy Introduces Mergal® WP45, a Wet-state Preservative for Aqueous Wood Coatings

Published on 2015-08-04. Author : SpecialChem

FLORHAM PARK, NJ – The production of aqueous wood coating systems presents a number of challenges for manufacturers, particularly contamination. To address this need, Troy introduces advanced Mergal® WP45, a broad-spectrum wet-state preservative for the control of contamination and spoilage-causing microorganisms in the manufacturing environment. Mergal® WP45 is a fast-acting preservative, enabling rapid control of contamination situations; the product also offers a long-term preservation component.

Formulated for optimum efficacy, Mergal® WP45 offers cost-effective materials protection at very low use rates, enabling manufacturers to balance cost control with performance objectives. Mergal® WP45 is based on OIT (octyl-isothiazolinone) technology, providing highly effective activity against bacteria, molds, and yeast.

“Mergal® WP45 offers the highest potency biocide chemistry in materials protection,” says Troy’s Dr. Izzy Colon, Vice President, Science & Technology. “The incorporation of isothiazolinone delivers more microbial control per active pound of biocide than any other technology available. As a result,” continues Colon, “Mergal® WP45 is highly cost-effective, and has a minimal environmental footprint because of its high activity at very low use levels.”
