Implement Antimicrobial Solutions To Protect Pet Products

Pet products such as bowls and beds are rarely cleaned. Incorporating antimicrobial solutions can create cleaner pet products. Materials commonly used in these products (PP, ABS, PVC, fabrics) can be easily treated with Microban antimicrobial technologies.

When it comes to product development, we are dedicated to helping our clients. When a company decides to become a Microban partner, our team initiates the planning phase by discussing all the aspects of your product’s antimicrobial technology requirements. Open communication surrounding your product’s environment and uses helps our engineers design multiple antimicrobial solutions. When an ideal compound is identified, Microban will conduct final testing to ensure proper durability, performance and compatibility.

The Results Are In

Microban recently conducted an odor study to determine the effect of Microban antimicrobial protection has on reducing odors from bacteria. Two samples were tested, one with Microban antimicrobial protection and one left unprotected. The samples were inoculated with bacteria and the growth of bacteria was measured over a six hour incubation period.

The sample with Microban generated 250 times less malodor after the six hour period than the sample left unprotected, and the protected sample stayed significantly fresher throughout the entire test period.

Microban® Protection Makes a Difference

On an unprotected surface, bacteria can double in number every 20 minutes, quickly generating unpleasant pet product odors. Microban antimicrobial protection works continuously to inhibit the growth of odor causing bacteria, so your pet products smell fresher for longer. And because Microban antimicrobial technology is infused at the point of manufacture, it provides protection that will last for the lifetime of the pet product.
