Thor Brazil increases production

Thor Brazil is delighted to announce the installation of a new dilution and mixing tank for bactericide formulations.  This third tank, commissioned specifically for these formulations, enables a considerable increase in bactericidal production in Brazil.

Thor Brasil has also recently invested in increased water storage and warehouse capacity and a diesel electric generator to ensure continuity of production. 

Thor Brazil’s MD, Ridnei Brenna, commented "In spite of all recent circumstances, we are confident in the recovery of the Brazilian economy and Thor Brazil’s part in the ongoing  growth of the Thor group!”

New Solutions for Colourant Preservation

In store tinting systems are typically prone to fungal contamination on partially dried pigment dispersions in tinting cartridges.  Preservation is a challenge, requiring a balance between in-can and dry film efficacy, highly susceptible formulations and regulatory restrictions.  High costs are incurred when tinters become contaminated and equipment has to be cleaned and sterilised.

Thor has found the perfect preservation solution with a separate addition of in-can and dry film actives, including Thor AMME™ technology.  Various ACTICIDE® products for in-can and dry film are available. 

Determining the optimum preservative balance uses unique test methodology that replicates practical conditions more accurately than similar methodology, ensuring that choices can be made with confidence!
