At Booth 518, Troy is introducing new, innovative products that are of interest to coatings manufacturers and formulators. 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.

Troy is also presenting a technical paper entitled “Efficacy of Dry-Film Preservatives in the Real World” on Thursday, June 4th at 11:30 am in Grand Ballroom C.

New technologies Troy is showcasing at the Eastern Coatings Show include:

Polyphase® S99 & 663 Broad-Spectrum Dry-Film Preservatives for Aqueous Exterior Applications

Visitors to the Troy exhibit will learn about the performance characteristics and properties of new Polyphase S99, as well as Polyphase 663. These broad-spectrum fungicide + algaecide preservatives offer safe-use and environmental advantages, as well as effectiveness at very low use levels, translating into excellent cost-in-use. Polyphase663 is one of the leading dry-film preservatives available, and has exhibited unparalleled long-term performance and cost-efficiency in exterior applications. For manufacturers wishing to formulate with an alternative to the Diuron algaecide active, Troy is introducing Polyphase S99, an advanced, low-leaching, Diuron-free broad-spectrum fungicide + algaecide.

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 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 applications. Polyphase 963 offers unmatched 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, is a low-VOC product, and is 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.

Troykyd® D209W Solvent-Free Defoamer for Aqueous Performance Coatings

Manufacturers of aqueous high-gloss and wood coatings now have available to them a new solvent-free, high-performance additive that eliminates foam without compromising surface appearance or integrity: Troykyd D209W. 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 ideal for ‘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. What’s more, Troysperse ZWD1 contributes zero VOCs to finished products, allowing more latitude in the formulation of ‘green’ products.
