- Why Microban
As of April 1, 2012, Aegis® is now part of Microban® International. Microban® International is the global leader in built-in antimicrobial product protection, engineering durable antimicrobial solutions for consumer, industrial and medical products around the world.
Aegis® Technology works to inhibit the growth of microbes on textiles by utilizing a charge disruption mode of action. Once this association is established, it neutralizes the cell wall’s natural protection by interacting with cellular proteins needed to maintain cell wall integrity. This leads to severe disruption of normal cellular function and the eventual breakdown of the microbial cell (also known as lysis).
