Arch Chemicals Announces New Product Registration
March 14, 2010
NORWALK, CT - Arch Chemicals Inc. has announced regulatory registration for several of its fungicides and antimicrobial products.
The company has been granted registration for use of its Omacide™ IPBC 30, 40 and 100 fungicides as dry-film paint preservatives by Pest Management Regulatory Affairs (PMRA), the agency responsible for conducting efficacy assessments on pest-control products as well as industrial biocides for use in Canada. These broad-spectrum fungicides, based on IPBC (3-lodo-2-propynl-n-butylcarbamate) chemistry, inhibit the growth of mildew on latex paints and are used where a high mold hazard is present.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has granted registrations of Densil™ DG 45 Antimicrobial and Vanquish™ 100 Antimicrobial, developed by Arch Chemicals Inc., for use in building product applications. Both Densil DG 45 Antimicrobial and Vanquish 100 Antimicrobial are broad-spectrum antimicrobials that inhibit the growth of bacteria, fungi and algae, preventing odor, staining and premature product failure.
