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. Unlike other technologies, it is not a coating that can rub off, nor is it dependent on sunlight to work effectively. It works to exert its antimicrobial flooring product protection of the surface regardless of light or moisture.
Stage by stage, Microban encourages collaborative communication with partners throughout product development. While our clients are heavily involved in the planning stages of product development, we also include them during the designing, experimentation and final testing phases. Our engineers create a variety of suitable compound formulations to identify the exact additives your antimicrobial flooring product technology needs to resist microbial growth. After finding the ideal compound mixture, Microban tests for appropriate antimicrobial technology performance while helping clients with regulatory compliance.
The Microban® brand is the global leader in built-in antimicrobial protection – our brand awareness levels are at 46% and rival those of other ingredient brands such as Intel®, Gore-Tex® and Lycra®.
Based on a recent market research study with consumers, including Microban antimicrobial product protection in your sanitaryware products could result in a 30% increase in market share from your competitors' products with generic antimicrobials.
