Consumer Products

Home is where you go to kick back, relax and spend time with family and friends. It’s not a place where you want to worry about stain and odor causing microbes like bacteria, mold and mildew.

Commercial Products

The commercial and foodservice industries are breeding grounds for odor, stain causing bacteria. From aircraft interiors to commercial high chairs to food processing materials, Microban has engineered microbe-inhibiting, antimicrobial additives for product protection on items such as plastic foodservice transportation bins, TV remote controls and cleaning supplies.

Building Materials

The best defense against mold is prevention. Buildings that supply antimicrobial flooring product protection, antimicrobial additive paint technology, and stain-resistant bathroom fixtures help prevent the growth of mold and mildew. Utilizing mold-resistant products is important, as building materials often contain starches, organic adhesives and cellulose sugars, which are ideal nutrient sources for mold.


Healthcare associated infections (HAIs) account for 100,000s deaths per year in the US alone; more than breast cancer, auto accidents and AIDS combined. Microban can incorporate antimicrobial technologies that will kill disease causing pathogens such as MRSA, Ecoli, enterobacter aerogenese, pseudomonas aeruingosa, VRE, staphylococcus aureus, and many more into your medical products.
