- Troy Corporation announces its continuing support of OBPA materials for plastics applications. Troy is the only US manufacturer that supplies OBPA and is supporting its re-registration in the USA. The company offers customers a full line of products under its Micropel® brand of antimicrobials for plastics; these specially designed products are based on proven OBPA technology, as well as alternatives such as IPBC and isothiazolinones.
“In order to enable our customers to lead in their respective markets and achieve their performance and cost objectives, Troy offers the product technologies they demand,” says David E. Faherty, Vice President, Troy Corporation. “Our customers in all regions except Europe can continue to use OBPA without any service interruptions. For those customers who wish to formulate with OBPA alternatives, Troy offers a full range of Micropel preservatives based on other actives, most notably IPBC, which provide comparable performance to OBPA in the control of fungal and pink stain growth in plastics and related materials.”Micropel in Europe
In Europe, Troy offers a full line of non-OBPA commercial products. These include Micropel A285, 612, and the new 2000 series products, all of which are based on IPBC. In addition, Troy supplies the Micropel IT and DC liquid series of products in various plasticizers, as well as solid Micropel IT10PVC. Another new product technology is Micropel 1000, which is designed to impart surface anti-bacterial properties and offer comparable performance to silver, but with better cost in use.
“Additional Troy Micropel materials are under development which will continue to answer the demands of the industry and assist customers worldwide in overcoming the challenges they face,” says Faherty. “Troy has an established track record of working with customers and developing custom solutions.”
