Antimicrobial Additives for Meaningful Product Enhancement
On any given surface, bacteria can double in number every 20 minutes, causing the development of stains and unpleasant odors that impact durability and product lifespan. In many circumstances, once bacteria have begun to proliferate on a surface, constant cleaning is required to keep microbial growth under control. Recognizing that the ability to clean constantly is unreasonable in most environments, the best weapon against the growth of bacteria, mold and mildew is prevention.
Microban® antimicrobial additives help keep products and surfaces cleaner by inhibiting the growth of bacteria, mold and mildew in treated products. Our customized chemistries are incorporated into products at the point of manufacture to provide ongoing protection against a broad spectrum of microbes for the life of the product and have been proven to eliminate up to 99.9% of harmful microbes. The incorporation of effective antimicrobial additives leaves you with a product that provides enhanced performance for your customer, in the form of proactive protection and improved product durability.
