Troy introduces new universal mar and slip additive

July 24, 2012

Troy Corporation has introduced the latest addition to its Z-Line of multifunctional, environmentally friendly performance additives—Troysol Z372. Z372 is a high performance universal mar and slip additive that improves the wetting of low surface energy and contaminated substrates, resulting in uniform film coverage. Engineered for solvent, solvent-free and aqueous systems, Z372 improves resistance properties, gloss and surface appearance in most systems said the company. Z372 is well-suited for coatings and related products in which surface slip and/or resistance properties, such as block, stain, or scrub resistance are required. Like all Troy Z-Line performance additives, Z372 is a zero VOC, HAPS-free, APE-free product formulated with renewable resources.

“Troysol Z372 is a high performance additive that delivers a great deal of value to coatings manufacturers," said Izzy Colon, vice president and general manager, additives, Troy. "By accomplishing the functions of several additives and with typical use levels as low as 0.1 percent by weight, Z372 offers manufacturers the opportunity to achieve performance benefits in a cost-effective manner."
