Use biocides to ensure you will help protecting your customers’ constructions
Construction products are subject to spoilage, degradation, contamination and defacement. Harmful bacteria, algae, mold and mildew can reduce the life of the product and even cause defacement of products such as roof or floor coatings, caulks and sealants, to name just a few. In the worst scenario, harmful organisms in your construction products can even have serious health risks for consumers in close contact.
Construction products also need to be protected from microbial spoilage during manufacturing, shipping, and storage. It is important that they reach your customer without contamination.
Biocides are engineered molecules with two primary functions: one is to ensure that your construction products has an acceptable shelf life. The other most important function is to ensure that your finished product remains free from mold, mildew and fungus.
Usage of Biocides is governed by the PMRA and Biocides are very specific in terms of the application and exposure. Typical dosages - depending on the formulation would be in the 500-1500 ppm range.
