What is said to be the first biocide-containing color masterbatch has been introduced for wood-plastic composite (WPC) decking and other building profiles based on polyolefins and rigid or flexible PVC. New Tek Deck Pro from Teknor Color Co., Pawtucket, R.I., combines color, uv absorber, and Vinyzene isothiazolone-based biocide from Rohm and Haas Co., Philadelphia. This one "all-organic" one-pack additive masterbatch reportedly costs at least 15% less than if the three additives were purchased separately.
