Troy's Mergal BIT20 receives Canadian regulatory approval
Article Type: Industry news From: Pigment & Resin Technology, Volume 39, Issue 1
Troy Corp. has received Canadian approval for the wet state preservative Mergal BIT20 containing the active 1,2-Benzisothiazolin-3-one (BIT). The Pest Management Regulatory Agency in Canada has determined that Mergal BIT20 is eligible for full-registration pursuant to the Pest Control Products Act as an industrial preservative. Mergal BIT20 is a highly effective, broad-spectrum preservative developed to protect water-based products from the growth of detrimental microorganisms, according to the company. The products have been approved in Canada for use to protect latex emulsions, metalworking fluids, aqueous-based paints, and aqueous mineral slurries. Mergal BIT20 inhibits microbial growth, which reduces spoilage to extend the product's service life.
