Specialty Coatings

Specialty coatings like stucco, elastomeric roof coatings, concrete and floor coatings help to enhance and protect our homes and work spaces. But these coatings need protection, too. Contamination by algae, mold or mildew can cause defacement and deterioration of the coating, reducing the performance and the lifespan of your product.

To perform at their best, your coatings need to reach the customer in pristine condition. In addition to protecting the dry film, it is essential to have strong in-can protection to control contamination or spoilage of your product. We offer a range of microbial control solutions that are highly effective against a broad spectrum of organisms like mold, mildew, algae, bacteria and yeast. Let us help you protect your specialty coatings from spoilage, contamination and defacement.

Increased Roof Life

Sustain optimal performance for a lower cost with Dow Chemical's BIOBAN™ 200 Antimicrobial. DCOIT (dichloro-2-noctyl-4-isothiazolin-3-one), a Green Chemistry Award-winning molecule, is the same molecule used to protect marine coatings from fouling without adversely impacting the environment due to its rapid degradation and minimal bioaccumulation. BIOBAN 200 delivers an exclusive Dow active chemistry that resists rain runoff and protects roof coatings better in extended exposure studies when compared to IPBC.
