Bathrooms are characterized by their typical warm, moist environment. In fact, the bathroom is warmer than of the majority of a household during use. Building materials used in the bathroom, including caulks and sealants, are susceptible to mold and mildew growth. These substrates are extremely difficult to clean and growth reoccurs quickly. Microban® antimicrobial grout and antimicrobial sealant product protection ensures durable and effective protection of these surfaces against the growth of microbes that can cause stains, odors, mold and mildew.
Communicating openly with clients throughout the product development process is a high priority at Microban. We keep clients in the communication loop from the initial planning stage to final testing. From design to patent counseling, we include companies in the product development cycle. We experiment with a variety of formulations to identify the exact chemical properties your antimicrobial grout and antimicrobial sealant product protection technologies need to resist microbial reproduction. For instance, after finding the ideal compound mixture for product protection of antimicrobial grout sealer, Microban tests for appropriate compound performance and durability. Even after antimicrobial grout additive technologies are checked for product compatibility, Microban continues to assist clients with regulatory compliance.
