Lonza
Lonza antimicrobials are used to increase the useful life of plastic parts and have been proven effective against micro-organisms in a variety of applications at cost-effective use levels.

Preserve PVC formulations with Lonza antimicrobials and antifungals

PVC formulations often use additives such as plasticizers and lubricants which are responsible for the growth of micro-organisms in finished products. These microbial attacks result in the loss of both physical and aesthetic properties.
Vanquish® and Zinc Omadine® antimicrobials are both effective against mold, fungi and algae to offer a high-level of protection to PVC through:
  • Broad spectrum antimicrobial activity
  • Durable Preservation, especially under UV exposure, leaching and soil burial

In addition, Vanquish® antimicrobials and Zinc Omadine® antimicrobials are easy to formulate (powder or liquid product, plasticizer miscible for liquid, low odor etc...):
  • All stable under typical PVC processing temperatures
  • All easily incorporated into PVC (plastisols or dry blend)

An example of protection obtained with Vanquish®100 antimicrobial vs. OBPA is illustrated in the figures 1 and 2 below (Soil Burial test):

> These tests show a higher level of protection against fungi and algae with Vanquish® 100 antimicrobial grade.
> Vanquish® 100 antimicrobial is an excellent alternative to OBPA with a broad spectrum of antimicrobial protection of PVC.
