Thor Oz supports Fairfield Hospital

Thor team in Australia was again delighted to show its support of this local community hospital in Sydney - close to the Thor Australia offices.   The money will be used to buy infusion pumps to enhance the paediatric department facilities available at the hospital.

Pictured is Ken Hampson (left), Head of Hospital Operations at Fairfield Hospital, receiving the donation from Thor Australia's MD, Arno Dalla Fontana (right) and Office Manager Julie Hagan. The donation adheres to Thor's policy worldwide of contributing to the communities in which we operate by supporting specially selected projects aimed at improving the lives of those in the local area.  


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!
