Akcros Chemicals Ltd. has made it easier to use one of its biocides.
Akcros added a new Intercide grade that is compounded in an ethylene vinyl acetate carrier for improved dispersion in plastics. The active ingredient is oxybisphenoxyarsine present at a level of 5 percent.
The firm said Intercide DP8503 was developed to protect polyolefins against a range of microorganisms, such as bacteria, fungi and algae. The dust-free pellets promote plant hygiene and offer an alternative to biocides in liquid form.
Akcros Chemicals America is a unit of Akzo Nobel.
