Troy Corporation has won the prestigious Ringier Technology Innovation Award for Additives in China’s coatings industry. The award was created to honor those companies that have introduced a new product, technology, or process that advances the coatings industry in China, such as improving efficiency, cost performance, or environmental responsibility. A panel of industry experts evaluated new technologies which debuted and were made commercially available between 2011 and 2013.
Troy was selected for an Additives award for its introduction of Polyphase 2167, an innovative, zero-VOC broad-spectrum dry-film preservative that not only is highly effective against fungi and yeast, but also creates an antibacterial surface through a unique immobilization technology. Additionally, Polyphase 2167 has proven effectiveness against pathogenic bacteria. With these benefits as well as a low hazard profile and suitability for use in technical materials like interior paints, adhesives, sealants, building materials, and textiles, Polyphase 2167 has the ability to make a significant impact on the coatings market. Polyphase 2167 is currently available to customers in the Asia-Pacific region, as well as other select geographies worldwide.
“Troy is proud to have won the Ringier Award for 2013,” said Donald Shaw, vice president, Troy Asia. “We continue to invest in new technologies, such as Polyphase 2167, and in growing markets like China and Southeast Asia. Recognition of these efforts is welcome as we continue to expand our services and offer more products and capabilities in the growing China market."
