FLORHAM PARK, NJ – Troy Corp. announced that The Pest Management Regulatory Agency of Health Canada, in accordance with the Pest Control Products Act, has approved the usage of Mergal 753 wet-state preservative for the in-package protection of paints, coatings and allied products. Mergal 753 is a zero-VOC, formaldehyde-free dispersion with broad-spectrum efficacy against bacteria, fungi and yeast, which cause deterioration of aqueous systems. It is the highest concentrated product of its kind with free-flowing characteristics and a uniform homogenous nature. Additionally, Mergal 753 has a low toxicity profile and contains no alkylphenol-ethoxylates (APEs).

As a high-performing preservative concentrate, Mergal 753 provides effective in-package microbial protection using less total volume per product batch compared with all other competing technologies. The “more using less” feature results in minimized environmental impact and reduced energy consumption, qualifying Mergal 753 as a truly “green” preservative.
