The prevention of microbiological degradation of products containing water is one of the most important challenges now and in future. Since paints and coatings are nowadays mainly water-based microbiological contamination can be an issue within these systems.
When choosing a suitable preservative for a paints & coatings product there are various factors to consider – different ingredients, pH value, compatibility, legal approvals and climate conditions – to name a few. The large number of possible microorganisms, different packaging and storing conditions, and the enormous diversity of raw materials imposes demands that cannot be covered by just one microbial active.
With the comprehensive parmetol® product line, schülke has developed sophisticated multi component preservative systems to sufficiently protect paints and coatings. At this point, due to its excellent properties for the preservation of paints and coatings on parmetol® MBX and grotan® BA 21 are referenced.
