Troy Corporation exhibited at the American Coatings Show ACS 2012 in Indianapolis, IN from May 7-10th and promoted The Key to Innovation, Performance, & Value. Troy's exhibit, through performance data and extensive product details, highlighted how Troy can help customers reach performance and cost targets through advanced, high-performance products with exceptional technical service.
"With a broad line of innovative, high performance Polyphase® dry film preservatives, Mergal® wet-state preservatives, and Performance Additives, Troy offers manufacturers the opportunity for cost savings while maintaining or exceeding performance goals," says W. Brian Smith, Vice President, Troy Corporation. "Troy products such as Polyphase 663 and 678 provide industry-leading efficacy and broad-spectrum performance at low use levels, ultimately translating into benchmark cost-in-use."
Polyphase® Dry Film Preservatives
Polyphase preservatives address some of the biggest concerns of the paint and coatings industry today, namely cost, performance, and favorable environmental attributes. Troy featured three of these advanced dry film preservatives, which are engineered for different applications. Polyphase 663, 678, & 2085 new-generation preservatives have significant advantages: broad-spectrum protection, highly effective performance at low use levels, preferred toxicology profiles, and zero- or low-VOC chemistry. Polyphase 663 provides extremely durable protection in exterior applications; Polyphase 678 offers excellent performance for interior applications, including fungal organisms of health concern; and Polyphase 2085 is designed for use in wood protective coatings.
Mergal® Wet-State Preservatives
Advanced wet-state preservation technologies from Troy afford manufacturers the ability to meet a wide range of performance goals, from contamination remediation to long-term protection, as well as optimized cost-in-use. Mergal K12N & 758 are zero-VOC multi-active preservatives engineered for today's 'greener' coatings, offering both short-term control of contamination and long-term protection. Mergal 530 is a unique, fast-acting sanitizer engineered to deliver remediation of contaminated raw materials. Mergal MC14 is a formaldehyde-free, highly efficient wet-state preservative that exhibits broad-spectrum efficacy against bacteria, fungi, and yeast.
