KOPTHIONE ZN 40% FPS
The paint industry has long been aware of the problems of microbial attack on painted surfaces. Microbial growth can lead to both aesthetic and physical degradation of the coating or painted surface. In addition to the obvious aesthetic effects of mold, mildew and algae growth, physical deterioration by their enzymes can lead to physical degradation. This degradation can include an increase in porosity of the surface coating or a loss of adhesion to the substrate. Moisture penetration can lead to fungal decay of the underlying wood. Biodegradation is not limited to the surface coating or dry paint films; it can also occur during production and storage of the paint.
Coatings formulators face a number of challenges in the selection of dry film biocides. One of the formulator’s main goals is to select dry film biocides so as to achieve broad-spectrum and long-lasting protection of the paint film. One of the most effective anti-fouling Biocide used in architectural coating paint application is Kumar organics’ Kopthione Zn 40% FPS.
Kopthione Zn 40% FPS is Zinc pyrithione 40% FPS. It is available in Fine particle suspension form. It is stable in extremely low particle size aqueous dispersion for complete protection of all type of paints from microbial attack. Kopthione 40% FPS has low solubility in water; this property makes it ideal for all types of architectural (indoor and outdoor) paints. Kopthione 40% FPS is effective against wide range of bacteria, fungi and algae which grows on walls. The antifungal effect of Kopthione 40% is derived from its ability to disrupt membrane transport by blocking pump that energizes the transport mechanism. Kopthione 40% FPS also prevents discoloration of paint by protecting buildings from decomposition by UV light of direct sunlight.
To summarize, long-term, broad-spectrum microbial control on painted surfaces can be achieved by careful selection of biocide active agents like Kopthione 40% FPS, considering their properties, microbial spectrum and regulatory status.
