Antimicrobial technology has revolutionized facility cleanliness and is a key aid in the fight against harmful and product-damaging microbes. So much so, that there are many benefits to manufacturing products with antimicrobial technology built in, and purchasing products of the same nature. We look at the top five benefits of antimicrobial technology, from the view of both consumers and manufacturers.
Antimicrobial Technology Protects Surfaces from Harmful Microbes
Antimicrobial technology can be incorporated into products of all shapes and sizes, whether it’s consumer products, commercial, textiles, building or healthcare products. Its primary function is to inhibit the growth of microbes on the surface of the product that it has been built into, in order to fight against product degradation and keep surfaces fresher and cleaner for longer.
Inhibiting the growth of microbes in hospital environments, public bathrooms, restaurant kitchens and public transport etc. is vital to help fight against the spread of harmful microbes. Likewise, it is just as important in the home. Consumers can now purchase everyday household products that have the same antimicrobial technology built in, and reap the rewards at home.
Antimicrobial Technology Extends the Usable Life of Your Product Range
Antimicrobial technology can help to make your product range long-lasting and durable. Not only does the antimicrobial protection work to inhibit damaging microbial growth on the surface of your products, but it can also decrease the rate at which your products degrade.
Stain and odor-causing microbes, as well mold and mildew, are fought against, all of which can damage products. Antimicrobial technology cannot be washed off and does not wear away. Plus, when combined with regular cleaning, the addition of antimicrobial technology boosts a product’s durability and useable life.
Antimicrobial Technology Helps You Gain a Distinct Edge Over Competition
Antimicrobial technology is a unique selling point that differentiates you from your competitors while providing consumers with extra value. Since antimicrobial technology can be incorporated into a vast range of products, it can be utilized within many different industries in order to gain a competitive advantage within your marketplace.
