Troy Unveils Mergal® 753 Wet-State Preservative for the In-Package Protection of Paints, Coatings Products

Published on 2011-06-30. Author : SpecialChem

Troy Corporation announced that The Pest Management Regulatory Agency of Health Canada, in accordance with the Pest Control Products Act, has approved the usage of Mergal 753 wet-state preservative for the in-package protection of paints, coatings, and allied products. Mergal® 753 is a zero-VOC, formaldehyde-free dispersion with broad-spectrum efficacy against bacteria, fungi, and yeast, which cause deterioration of aqueous systems. Mergal® 753 is the highest concentrated product of its kind with free-flowing characteristics and a uniform homogenous nature. Additionally, Mergal® 753 has a low toxicity profile and contains no alkylphenol-ethoxylates (APEs).

As a high-performing preservative concentrate, Mergal® 753 provides effective in-package microbial protection using less total volume per product batch compared with all other competing technologies. The 'more using less' feature results in minimized environmental impact and reduced energy consumption, qualifying Mergal® 753 as a truly 'green' preservative. "With Mergal® 753, Canadian customers can meet or exceed market and regulatory demands for high performance and broad capability, while achieving their sustainability and environmental goals," says Bernie Franc, Wet-State Business Manager at Troy Corporation.
