Abstract

© 2018 American Coatings Association. All Rights Reserved. The utility of a high-throughput, spectrophotometry assay in screening over 23 enzyme and peptide-based additives against bacterial coating spoilage agents was evaluated. Candidate additives were then evaluated using ASTM D2574 for in-can coating spoilage challenges, and additives that may be used to substitute for traditional biocides were identified that eliminated recoverable bacterial growth.
