As an expert in polymer stabilizers, Alfa Chemistry pays close attention to the various factors that influence the performance of polymers. After tremendous endeavors, the company has successfully developed a wide range of mould inhibitors for researchers worldwide, aiming to prevent the emergence and growth of bacteria, mould, and mildew on the surface of polymer products.

Each year, almost 300 million tons of plastic are produced globally. Different additives such as antioxidants, light stabilizers, optical brighteners, flame retardants, plasticizers, and heat stabilizers are used to achieve optimal polymer performance.

“Serving as antimicrobial plastic additives, mould inhibitors provide unique alternatives to combat microorganisms for plastics. In the last few decades, antimicrobial polymers and their nanostructures have been broadly applied in antimicrobial therapy. These highly potent antimicrobial polymers with minimal human cell toxicity are the most desired materials,” said the Marketing Chief of Alfa Chemistry. “Currently, we offer a diversified line of mould inhibitors, including biologically and chemically based. All are qualified to serve as additives for the plastic and rubber industries.”

Generally speaking, mould inhibitors can not only eliminate or inhibit the activity of various metabolic enzymes in mould fungi cells but can also react with the amino or sulfhydryl groups of enzyme proteins to inhibit or eliminate functions. In some cases, mould inhibitors can inhibit RNA synthesis by interrupting spore germination.

Below are some of the mould inhibitors provided by Alfa Chemistry:

Dibromocyanoacetamide (CAS 10222–01–2), 2,2'-Dithiodibenzoic acid (CAS 119–80–2), Zinc pyrithione (CAS 13463–41–7), Copper pyrithione (CAS 14915–37–8), 5-Chloro-2-methyl-4-isothiazolin-3-one (CAS 26172–55–4), 2-Methyl-4-isothiazolin-3-one (CAS 2682–20–4), Poly(hexamethylenebicyanoguanide-hexamethylenediamine) hydrochloride (CAS 27083–27–8), Bronidox (CAS 30007–47–7), Poly (hexamethylene biguanide) hydrochloride (CAS 32289–58–0), 3-Iodo-2-propynyl butylcarbamate (CAS 55406–53–6), Kathon 930 (CAS 64359–81–5), Dimethyloldimethyl hydantoin (CAS 6440–58–0), etc.
