Troy Introduces Troysol™ PWA, Next Generation Wetting and Adhesion Promoter, for Dry-mix Products

Published on 2011-12-19. Author : SpecialChem

Troy Corporation announces the introduction of Troysol™ PWA, a unique, next generation wetting and adhesion promoter intended for dry-mix products. Troysol PWA improves adhesion to substrates and enhances pull-off strength. Ideal for cement-based adhesives, EIFS adhesives, mortar, gypsum board, tile adhesives, and other dry-mix products, Troysol PWA answers the needs of industry for a high-performance additive designed specifically for high-performance building products.

"The use of the Troysol PWA," says Dr. Izzy Colon, VP and General Manager, Additives at Troy, "allows a reduction in the water/cement ratio, thereby improving mechanical properties as well as adhesion. The result," continues Colon, "is a reduced need for the polymeric binders typically added to formulations to achieve these properties. Less water results in faster drying, improved adhesion, and higher compressive strength." VOC- and CMR-free Troysol PWA is available as a free-flowing powder.
