Troy Launches Polyphase 963, Low-VOC Fungicide + Algaecide for Solvent-Based Wood Coatings

July 31, 2014

Manufacturers of solvent-based wood protective paints and stains are witnessing increased demand for protection against both fungi and algae in their formulated products. In anticipation of this trend, Troy Corporation developed Polyphase 963, a new broad-spectrum fungicide + algaecide for enhanced performance, environmental responsibility, and the lowest cost-in-use in wood protection for solvent-based wood applications.

Polyphase 963 is an advanced broad-spectrum fungicide + algaecide that offer unparalleled protection, as shown in long-term exposure testing on wood substrates in climates prone to severe fungal and algal growth. "Polyphase 963 provides solvent-based wood coatings manufacturers with the same excellent broad-spectrum performance as Polyphase 663, but without the drawbacks that an aqueous preservative brings to solvent-based products," said  Izzy Colon, vice president, Science & Technology at Troy. "Based on the world-leading preservative technologies IPBC, BCM, and Diuron, Polyphase 963 is not only highly efficacious, but also remarkably cost-effective. Polyphase 963 has a low hazard profile and is a low VOC product that is free of formaldehyde and APE, making the dry-film preservative ideal for today's 'green' systems. Troy enables formulators to reach performance and cost targets through advanced, high-performance products, such as Polyphase 963, supported by exceptional technical service," continues Colon, "which will give them the edge over their competition."
