Microbial Control

Microorganisms are widespread and, once present, they can compromise product functionality, performance and aesthetics. Exposure to microorganisms can also affect human health.

Janssen PMP offers a range of pyrithione-based antimicrobials under the PYRION™ brand to inhibit microbial growth in a variety of industrial applications such as metalworking fluids, plastics, textiles, paints, coatings, adhesives, sealants, caulks, leather processing and marine antifouling paints, as well as in personal care (anti-dandruff).

Zinc PYRION™,Sodium PYRION™ and Oxy-PYRION™ exhibit excellent broad-spectrum activity against fungi, algae and bacteria and are gaining increased market popularity. Zinc PYRION™, by virtue of its low water solubility, is extremely suitable for applications where low leaching and long-term protection is required. Sodium PYRION™ and Oxy-PYRION™ allow formulators the flexibility of a water-soluble antimicrobial agent for aqueous applications.

Janssen PMP offers more than just antimicrobials and combines its product offering with excellent customer service, in-house microbiological and analytical testing, as well as worldwide sales force and regulatory support.
