Innovation in antimicrobial protection
The Material Protection business offers solutions that include antimicrobials, corrosion inhibitors, lubricants, and a variety of other specialty additives. These products are used across a range of industries including plastics, textiles, leather, metalworking fluids, powdered metal, and energy.
We recognize that each of our customers has unique needs; we work with customers to overcome their challenges. We leverage our competencies in R&D, regulatory, manufacturing excellence, product quality, and marketing support in all the Material Protection segments. We take a long term view of our preservatives and anticipate regulatory trends in all regions so that we can adapt our biocide portfolio accordingly.
We enable manufacturers to offer peace of mind to their customers through our Micropel® co-branding program. These unique platforms offer manufacturers the ability to communicate added value to consumers and achieve product differentiation on the shelf. The programs require the incorporation of Arxada/Troy preservatives at recommended use levels to ensure high levels of antimicrobial protection.
Now that Troy Corporation, an innovation leader in preservatives and additives for paints & coatings, is part of Arxada, we have significantly expanded our preservatives portfolio, forming one of the most comprehensive product offerings in the industry. In addition to preservatives, we have added Troy’s performance additive portfolio, enabling customers to achieve complete control of coatings, from microbial protection to surface properties and application.
