Troy Corporation Showcases a Variety of New Technologies
Troy Corporation is introducing several new, innovative products that will be of interest to European manufacturers and formulators at Stand 7A-125. Company representatives are available to offer expert technical service and regulatory support for a full line of advanced dry-film and wet-state preservatives, performance additives and metal carboxylates. New technologies being showcased include:
Polyphase® 864CR & 663 Aqueous Dry-Film Preservatives
Visitors to the Troy exhibit can learn about the performance characteristics and properties of new Polyphase 864CR, which incorporates Troy’s proprietary controlled-release technology; as well as Polyphase 663, Troy’s leading fungicide + algaecide. These preservatives have exhibited excellent long-term performance and resistance to excessive leaching, in addition to superior UV stability. Both IPBC-based broad-spectrum dry-film preservatives offer safe-use and environmental advantages, as well as performance at very low use levels, translating into excellent cost-in-use.
Polyphase 963 Broad-Spectrum Fungicide + Algaecide for Solvent-Based Wood Applications
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 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 applications. The product offers unparalleled performance, as shown in long-term exposure testing on wood substrates in climates prone to severe fungal and algal growth. Polyphase 963 has a low hazard profile and is a low-VOC product, free of formaldehyde and APE, making the dry-film preservative ideal for today’s ‘green’ systems.
Polyphase 978 Full-Spectrum Fungicide for Solvent-Based Wood Protective Coatings
Troy developed Polyphase 978 to provide long-term protection against mold and fungal attack in today's low-VOC, solvent-based wood protective coatings. The sustainable, highly effective fungicide features low VOCs and broad system compatibility in both clear and pigmented exterior solvent-based stains, as well as non-aqueous paints, coatings and caulking compounds. Polyphase 978 does not change the appearance of wood or have any influence on its coatability. The advanced dry-film preservative also poses fewer handling risks than conventional products, making it an excellent choice for modern wood coatings that end-use customers demand. It offers performance, safe-use and cost advantages.
Troykyd® D209W Solvent-Free Defoamer for Aqueous Performance Coatings
Designed for aqueous high-gloss and wood coatings, this new solvent-free, high-performance additive eliminates foam without compromising surface appearance or integrity. Highly compatible Troykyd D209W offers excellent defoaming functionality in a broad range of aqueous systems, including high-gloss and wood coatings, both clear and pigmented, as well as other end-use areas, including spray-applied systems, performance industrial coatings, inks and adhesives. With a solvent-free composition, Troykyd D209W is an excellent choice for environmentally ‘green’ coatings.
Troysperse™ ZWD1 Performance Dispersant for Aqueous Systems
Troy is also introducing Troysperse ZWD1, an advanced, 100%-active liquid dispersing and pigment wetting additive for aqueous coating and printing ink applications. The product is especially effective for the preparation of aqueous color pigment concentrates utilizing organic color pigments. Troysperse ZWD1 is formulated for excellent color development, fast dispersion time, high gloss and high pigment loading. The additive is also effective at low use levels, resulting in optimal cost performance. It contributes zero VOCs to finished products, allowing more latitude in the formulation of ‘green’ products.
