A message from Microban International about Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Recently, many of Microban’s customers have questions about the effectiveness of Microban’s built-in antimicrobial technologies against coronavirus COVID-19. Microban is the world leader in antimicrobial technologies and odor control solutions. Microban also has other product lines related to disinfection. Our built-in antimicrobial technologies are effective against a plethora of product damaging microbes, but are not currently proven to have any antiviral properties when built-into products. The active technology itself may be effective against viruses in pure state, but not when incorporated into a product. Microban antimicrobial product protection works to minimize damaging microbial growth on the surface of products, ensuring they remain cleaner and fresher between cleanings. The technologies also help to reduce the risk of premature product degradation. Microban – a trusted name in antimicrobial technology - has revolutionized product cleanliness with protection that lives on. Microban antimicrobial technologies are a key ingredient in the fight against product damaging microbes.

Standard recommendations to prevent the spread of coronavirus COVID-19 include regular hand washing, sneezing and coughing into a sleeve/tissue, and thoroughly cooking meat and eggs. Regularly cleaning products and surfaces with disinfectants can also help. We suggest you follow the advice of your local health authorities in preventing the spread of coronavirus COVID-19.

Microban antimicrobial product protection is not intended to control disease pathogens.
