As the only supplier to support OBPA’s EPA re-registration, Troy foresees strong and increasing demand for OBPA from flexible PVC manufacturers.

OBPA is one of the most cost-effective, efficacious materials available, and is especially well-suited to protect PVC from fungal attack as well as pink staining cause by the S. reticulum bacteria. Troy is committed to investing in technology that gives customers reliable performance and lowest cost-to-treat. With a team of regulatory professionals committed to OBPA’s registration, Troy is well-positioned to support this technology in order to enable customers to lead in their respective markets and achieve performance and cost objectives.

“OBPA technology is vital to the success of numerous Micropel® customers’ products,” says David E. Faherty, Vice President, Troy Corporation. “Manufacturers value the performance and cost-in-use they achieve with OBPA-based Micropel® preservatives,” continues Faherty.

Troy customers in all regions except Europe can continue to use OBPA without any service interruptions. For those customers who wish to formulate with OBPA alternatives, and for those who export treated articles to Europe, Troy offers a full range of Micropel® and Plastiguard® preservatives based on other actives, which provide excellent performance in plastics and related materials.
