Antimicrobial Product Testing Laboratory


Prior to deployment, we perform detailed lab testing on all our Microban® antimicrobial technologies. Our antimicrobial product testing enables us to continually research and develop new Microban antimicrobial technology, evaluate the effectiveness of our antimicrobial products, and support our partners. Our Materials Engineering group conducts over 40,000 microbiological and analytical antimicrobial tests annually in our state-of-the-art laboratories.

Our engineers have widespread experience in utilizing our antimicrobial plastics testing laboratory to engineer organic and inorganic antimicrobial technologies into a wide breadth of thermoplastic and thermoset systems. Our engineers have a strong working knowledge of diverse manufacturing techniques, including injection molding, plastic injection molding, rotational molding, and film and profile extrusion. Using this expertise and knowledge, our engineers develop antimicrobial product solutions that ensure compatibility with our partners’ materials, manufacturing processes and available equipment.

Microban Antimicrobial Technology

Our antimicrobial plastics testing laboratory utilizes developmental tools such as a 22-Ton injection molding machine and multiple twin screw extruders. These machines are equipped with strand and underwater pelletization capabilities that provide our engineers with the ability to create developmental masterbatches and plaques. Further testing of developmental products confirms the viability of new Microban antimicrobial technology in various materials and production methods. 

The extensive knowledge our engineers possess combined with the versatility of our polymer analytical tools and injection molding development machines allows us to minimize disruption to your current production process and improve your speed to market.
