TROY CORP.: Preservative

May 3, 2011

Mergal 753 is a zero-VOC, formaldehyde-free dispersion with broad-spectrum efficacy against the bacteria, fungi, and yeast that cause deterioration of aqueous systems. The material can reportedly provide 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 “green” preservative, according to the company.

“With Mergal 753, Canadian customers can meet or exceed market and regulatory demands for high performance and broad capability while achieving their sustainability and environmental goals,” said Bernie Franc, Wet-State business manager.

The Pest Management Regulatory Agency of Health Canada, in accordance with the Pest Control Products Act, recently approved the usage of Mergal 753 wet-state preservative for the in-package protection of coatings and allied products.
