Paints and Coatings

Protect your paints emulsions and coatings formulations.

Microbial Control in Paints and Coatings

Aqueous raw materials used in the formulation of paints and coatings create the perfect environment for the growth of bacteria, fungi and yeast which can destroy these valuable formulations. Controlling these microorganisms helps increase efficiency, helps deliver a better end-use product and helps employees and consumers avoid contact with spoilage microorganisms. Biocides are necessary for protecting the integrity and functionality of water-based formulations from microbial contamination.

As a global leader in microbial control, our broad portfolio, technical and regulatory expertise, unmatched testing, and laboratory capabilities provide solutions to help prevent contamination of the formulation not only in its wet state but in the dry film after application.

Paints and Coatings Applications

Our technologies control and solve microbial contamination problems of materials in the wet state, thus lengthening product shelf life, and protecting dry film from algae, mold and mildew.
