Creanova Inc. developed an arsenic-free biocide that it claims is effective in combating microorganisms that cause deterioration and staining of vinyl and other plastics.
Fungitrol 11-40 NP is a free-flowing liquid dispersion that is easy to process in a range of plasticized polymers, such as plastisols.
The Somerset, N.J., company claims the biocide is low cost, nondusting and thermally stable. The active ingredient also is available in a powder form for compounding into polymers.
