A manufacturer of coatings approached EMSL to do independent testing on a new formulation they developed. The solution would be used to combat algae growth on problematic surfaces. EMSL tested the anti-algal solution at three different concentrations against some of the major algae: Ulothrix gigas, Trentepohlia odorata, and Oscillatoria species. The final data showed that the anti-algal solution was effective at killing >99.99% of the algae at even the lowest concentration. This help the client to keep costs low as they could lower the amount of anti-fungal solution and still have great killing efficacy in their final product.
