Antimicrobial Additives, Agents, Odor Capture, and Visible Cleanliness for Polymers, Ceramics, and More

For over 30 years, Microban® has helped partners supply products with microbe-inhibiting product protection in the form of antimicrobial additives. We use the latest technologies to help companies implement antimicrobial product protection in the consumer, commercial, textiles, building and healthcare industries.

From liquids to polymers to ceramics, Microban antimicrobial additives boost product value while protecting against product degradation. Microban technology protects a product’s surface throughout its useful lifetime. Incorporated during the manufacturing process, our antimicrobial additives operate on the cellular level to continuously disrupt and prevent uncontrolled growth of the microorganism.

Microban antimicrobial agent technology protects household consumer products such as countertops, pool and spa linings, water filtration systems and sinks from product deterioration, stain and odor causing bacteria, mold and mildew. Commercial items like baby changing stations and point of sale electronics are easier to clean and stay cleaner in between cleanings thanks to custom Microban antimicrobial additives.

With Microban antimicrobial protection, paints, HVAC systems and other building materials are protected against product degradation and uncontrolled mildew growth. Antimicrobial additive technology creates an inhospitable environment for microorganism survival in mobile workstations, surface coatings, wound dressings and other medical textiles. Our experienced engineers can help you decipher best-fitting antimicrobial additive solutions through efficient product development and thorough testing. Let Microban help transform the value of your products with effective antimicrobial additives and customized antimicrobial agents today. Keep your products stay cleaner and fresher with next generation Microban technologies.

Today the Microban brand and technologies go beyond just antimicrobial protection. Scentry® for Polymers neutralizes material odors before they are incorporated into consumer and commercial goods. Microclean® technologies keep products visibly cleaner and can be combined with antimicrobial technologies to create a true clean.
