THE EFFECTIVENESS OF ZINC OMADINE[R] AS A FUNGISTAT.
Actodione was tried as a fungistat and found ineffective.
For example, at a recent Fiberlock museum project, the facilities management department chose a fungistat to line the museum's ductwork at the point of installation and the heating and ventilation system, thus making the system easier to clean and reducing the likelihood of microbial activity inside of the air supply system.
