Troy Unveils Polyphase® 963, a Low-VOC Fungicide + Algaecide for Solvent-based Wood Coatings

Published on 2014-07-31. Author : SpecialChem

FLORHAM PARK, NJ -- Manufacturers of solvent-based wood protective paints and stains are witnessing increased demand for protection against both fungi and algae in their formulated products. In anticipation of this trend, Troy Corporation developed Polyphase® 963, a new broad-spectrum fungicide + algaecide for enhanced performance, environmental responsibility, and the lowest cost-in-use in wood protection for solvent-based wood applications.

Polyphase® 963 is an advanced broad-spectrum fungicide + algaecide that offer unparalleled protection, as shown in long-term exposure testing on wood substrates in climates prone to severe fungal and algal growth. "Polyphase® 963 provides solvent-based wood coatings manufacturers with the same excellent broad-spectrum performance as Polyphase® 663, but without the drawbacks that an aqueous preservative brings to solvent-based products," said Troy's Dr. Izzy Colon, Vice President, Science & Technology. "Based on the world-leading preservative technologies IPBC, BCM, and Diuron, Polyphase® 963 is not only highly efficacious, but also remarkably cost-effective," continues Colon. Polyphase® 963 has a low hazard profile and is a low VOC product that is free of formaldehyde and APE, making the dry-film preservative ideal for today's 'green' systems.

"Troy enables formulators to reach performance and cost targets through advanced, high-performance products, such as Polyphase® 963, supported by exceptional technical service," continues Colon, "which will give them the edge over their competition."
