Tolsa unveils protection series of biocidal acids

- Dec 03, 2019-

MADRID, Spain—Tolsa has unveiled a new series of biocidal additives designed to protect against gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria and fungi.

The firm's Adins-branded Protection S4 and S10 products allows the incorporation of different active substances on the surface of the clay, obtaining a uniform distribution of these species throughout the additive. Tolsa said the product allows for optimal dispersion, translating into high antimicrobial activity at lower dosages.

These additivies can be used in construction, plastics and rubbers, and paints and coatings, Tolsa said. All active substances used in making these products comply with regulations of each country they are used in.

In addition, Tolsa has developed new synergists to boost the performance of thermoplastic elastomers, thermoplastic polyurethanes and polyamide resin systems. "Our unique FR technology continues to evolve and we see continuing growth for clay synergists in a wide range of systems that require the highest standards of flame retardancy," said Antonio Esteban, technical manager for Tolsa's Special Additives business unit.
