Accelerated Testing Services from Thor

The increasing demands for low/free VOC industrial products require that preservative efficacy is tested against fungal and algal defacement in paints and coatings.  Our innovative dry film biocide chemistries now allow us to offer competitive products more speedily to meet the industry's stringent demands.

Accelerated testing allows the customer to make qualified decisions on preservative usage for their products without the need for exterior exposure testing which requires years for data accumulation.  Thor's accelerated testing services for paints and coating are conducted on site in our laboratories.

Thor USA technical staff attended the Cosmetic Science Symposium & Expo organised by the Personal Care Products Council which took place October 29th-30th at the Sonesta Philadelphia Rittenhouse Square. 

This Symposium in Philadelphia proved  to be a very worthwhile event. Besides attending the talks, Thor's technical team presented a poster highlighting some of the interesting benefits to be gained from from Microcare® Emollients. The poster focused on two new products, Microcare® Emollient APDG and Microcare® Emollient DCP, which are shown to provide emolliency, stability and microbial growth inhibition in a Hydrating Cream (skin care) formulation. 

We were pleased to meet up with so many visitors and thank you to everyone who came to chat with us!
