Build Cleaner Structures with Antimicrobial Flooring Product Technologies & More

More

The best defense against mold is prevention. Buildings that supply antimicrobial flooring product protection, antimicrobial paint product 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.

Built-in Microban® product protection inhibits microbial reproduction. Come rain or shine, moisture or heat, antimicrobial paint product protection, mold-inhibiting window coverings and odor-resistant air filtration systems will remain empowered with around-the-clock protection throughout the product’s useful lifespan. From antimicrobial flooring product protection to antimicrobial sink and sealant product protection, our engineers design unique compounds to fit every building’s product protection needs.

Microban protection is infused during the manufacturing process, so it never washes off or wears out. However, it is important to note Microban protection is not a substitute for routine cleanings. For instance, Microban antimicrobial flooring product technologies ease the cleaning process for hardwood, carpet and tile, but is not meant to replace flooring maintenance altogether. Transform your company’s product line of building materials with powerful built-in antimicrobial technology from Microban for fresher, cleaner products.

Air Filters

Microban® has a wide variety of technologies that provide antimicrobial filter product protection for paper and non-woven media.

Bathroom Fixtures

Bathrooms are moist, humid and are typically warmer than most of the household during use. Building materials used in the bathroom are susceptible to mold and mildew growth. These surfaces are extremely difficult to clean and growth quickly reoccurs.

Countertops

Countertops can harbor high amounts of stain-causing bacteria. Antimicrobial countertop product protection can be achieved with effective Microban® antimicrobial technologies.

Door Hardware

Surfaces with frequent contact and infrequent cleaning regiments can create the perfect environment for bacteria to quickly multiply and grow. In a recent study, over 80% of restaurant patrons said they were concerned about the growth of microbes on door handles.

Hardwood

Hardwood floors might appear clean, but they can harbor microbes from food and other sources. The thin urethane top layer of hardwood floors can be treated with Microban® antimicrobial technologies to create antimicrobial flooring product protection.

HVAC

Ductwork surfaces are rarely cleaned. Microban® antimicrobial hvac technology can provide a powdered antimicrobial coating for ductwork to help protect the treated surface from stain and odor causing bacteria.

Insulation

Insulation material such as fiber glass or pulp-based fill for sound insulation can serve to support fungal growth and propagation if wet. Protective Antimicrobial insulation technology can be applied to these materials to effectively inhibit the growth of microbes.

Kitchen Fixtures

Kitchen sinks are notorious areas for microbial contamination. Our antimicrobial kitchen faucet product protection helps keep your kitchen surfaces cleaner for longer.

Paints

Paint is often the last step to the final completion of a job well done. Now you can protect your hard work from the growth of mold and keep painted surfaces looking beautiful for longer than ever before.

Sealants and Grout

Bathrooms are characterized by their typical warm, moist environment. In fact, the bathroom is warmer than of the majority of a household during use.

Sinks

Microban product protection inhibits the growth of stain and odor causing bacteria, mold and mildew on the surface of your sink, keeping your sink cleaner and fresher in between cleanings.

Tile

Microban® offers the world's first unique "fired-in" antimicrobial tile technology where a custom designed antimicrobial compound is permanently incorporated as part of the ceramic glaze during the firing process to inhibit the growth of stains and odors on the tile surface.

Toilet & Toilet Seat

The bathroom can be a fertile breeding ground for microbes like bacteria, mold and mildew. In fact, if left unchecked bacteria levels can double in number every 20 minutes.

Urinals

Urinals are a hotspot for the growth of stain and odor causing microbes. And left unprotected, bacteria can double every 20 minutes.
