Complete Antimicrobial Solutions for Fresher Vacuum Cleaners

Appliance surfaces can appear clean and shiny but are probably harboring significant levels of microbes. This is especially true with vacuum cleaners, an appliance that is made to create a cleaner atmosphere. Typical polymers used for appliances include ABS, PS and PC. All these can be treated with Microban antimicrobial technologies to inhibit the growth of microbe populations on appliance surfaces and within vacuum cleaner bag chambers. Microban antimicrobial solutions can be added with ease during the manufacture of these products (injection molding, extrusion, RIM molding, etc.). Furthermore, paper HEPA filters can also be treated with Microban technologies to help prevent the growth of stain causing bacteria and odors.

Microban is committed to finding antimicrobial solutions through partner collaboration. Before our engineers design suitable antimicrobial product protection compounds, Microban discusses goals and needs with the partner during the planning stage. After experimenting with a number of antimicrobial solutions, we identify the exact chemical properties your product requires for microbial growth inhibition, checking for appropriate antimicrobial performance and compatibility. Microban continues to help partners as product development comes to a close by assisting with regulatory approvals and patent counseling.
