Carmel, IN – Peroxygen Solutions, of Greensboro, NC, has completed an exclusive North American Supply and Marketing Agreement with SePRO Corporation for the algaecide brand PAK®27.
PAK®27 (containing the active ingredient Sodium Carbonate Peroxyhydrate) is the original peroxide-based algaecide brand registered by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA) in 2003. PAK®27 is approved for use as both an algaecide and an algaestat for the selective control of cyanobacteria (blue-green algae) in lakes, ponds, drinking water reservoirs, wastewater, irrigation, drainage and conveyance ditches, and many other aquatic sites. PAK®27 is approved under NSF/ANSI Standard 60 for use in drinking water resources. All ingredients in PAK®27 have either Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) food additive status from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), or are exempt from food crop tolerances from the U.S. EPA.
SePRO Corporation will sell and service PAK®27 to professional aquatic applicators, governments, irrigation, and recreational water managers. “We are very pleased to be able to represent PAK®27 among our growing line-up of leading algae management and water quality enhancement products”, said Sam Barrick, Executive Director of SePRO’s Aquatics Business. “In line with SePRO’s stated goals to be the leading provider of both aquatic plant and algae management solutions to the US Aquatics Business, PAK®27 rounds out our SePRO portfolio. No matter what algae challenge that water managers may face, SePRO will have the capability to identify it quickly and to bring the unwanted population under control in the most cost efficient and environmentally conscious way,” said Barrick.
Peroxygen Solutions will continue to sell and service PAK®27 to U.S. Municipal Drinking Water and Wastewater managers, while SePRO’s team of Aquatic Specialists will bring more focus to, and technical support for, the expanding use of PAK®27 in the Professional Aquatics Market into the future. “SePRO’s team of Aquatic Specialists will provide the arms, legs, and know-how to keep PAK®27, the original peroxygen based algaecide, as the #1 peroxide based algaecide in the U.S. Aquatics market,” said Jef Morgan, President of Peroxygen Solutions. “PAK®27 was first to the market back in 1998, with special local need (SLN) permits, and now, as the requirements for oxidizing solutions continues to grow, PAK®27 will continue to grow at an even faster pace, by working with our partners at SePRO Corporation,” said Morgan.
SePRO began offering the aquatics industry SeSCRIPT™ analysis in 2010. SeSCRIPT incorporates laboratory analysis, and site specific prescription services, for improved management of algae and water quality. “The SeSCRIPT analysis is usually faced with the toughest of algae problems. Many times, one of the recommended solutions is a peroxygen based algaecide, to be used in conjunction with one of SePRO’s effective copper based algaecides” said West Bishop, SePRO’s Algae and Aquatic Research Scientist, and resident algae expert, based out of SePRO’s Research and Technology Campus (SRTC) in Whitakers, NC. “Now, with PAK®27 as part of the SePRO portfolio, we can continue to provide the best algae treatment prescription for our customers”.
