Published on 2014-12-29. Author : SpecialChem

Zurich -- The two companies IMPAG and microsTECH have recently teamed up to work in the field of material protection. It is now possible to significantly reduce the use of biocides in raw materials and end products thanks to a new and innovative concept, known as MT Technology.

MT Technology from microsTECH reduces the biocide content through the customized application of tailor-made boosters. These will be distributed by IMPAG under the brand name IMPABOOST. MT Technology has already been successfully implemented by a number of different clients. It is suitable for a range of possible products, such as aqueous dispersions, paints, adhesives, varnishes, grout, personal care products, cleaning agents, lubricants or slurries.

Beat Windler, head of the Business Unit Chemtech, sees huge potential in the technology: "Our IMPABOOST products used for the MT Technology help our clients reduce their use of biocides, which are coming under increased scrutiny. This makes it possible to manufacture products that are more environmentally friendly, more efficient, and more economical."
Patrick Schwarzentruber, CEO of microsTECH, also sees a lot of positives in the collaboration:

"With IMPAG as a professional partner that is close to the market, we are in the best position to provide domestic and international clients with the advantages of MT Technology."
