Troy Corporation 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. Mergal 753 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 technologies, according to the company.
