Building Materials

Growth of organisms such as mold, mildew or algae can cause defacement and degradation of building materials like grout, joint compound or exterior insulation finishing systems (EIFS). As well as compromising your construction product’s durability, mold and mildew growth can contribute to potential health risks for humans in close contact.

Microbial contamination is also a risk during manufacturing, shipping and storage of building materials such as concrete admixtures, mortars, spackle or any aqueous construction product. Good industrial hygiene and in-can preservation can help prevent visible microbial growth, unpleasant odors, color or viscosity changes, or other spoilage, allowing your customers to receive your product in prime condition.

Just like your products, our microbial control solutions are both sustainable and high-performing. Whether you need low-VOC products, low leaching into the environment, or alternatives to formaldehyde, we offer a range of highly effective options.
