Antimicrobial Building Materials For Every Environment

Tiled surfaces are ideal for wet areas, like bathrooms and kitchens. However, humid conditions combined with food sources from soap scum and organic residue can create the perfect breeding ground for microbes.


BAL® adds Microban® antimicrobial protection into its Microflex adhesives, grouts, and sealants at the stage of manufacture. Proven Microban® technology works to continuously inhibit the growth of degrading microbes on the surface of the treated product.
