After deciding to implement the strength of cutting-edge antimicrobial protection into a product line, our product development strategy team begins working with your company to develop each aspect of the project. Initial conversations help Microban determine how and where our antimicrobial compounds will assist with added product cleanliness. A product’s usages and environment greatly influence how Microban antimicrobial solutions are designed, making this a crucial planning step. Our product development cycle covers all bases during the initial planning phase before Microban engineers begin designing your unique solution.

Microban engineering is efficient yet thorough during the designing stage of our product development cycle. This gives companies the freedom to voice their opinions on antimicrobial solutions, enhancing a partner’s flexibility in giving their products what they need most in microbe-inhibiting protection. After accounting for vital factors such as product-compound interactions and targeted additive loading levels, an antimicrobial solution is designed based on these results to protect the product throughout its useful lifetime.

This leads us to the final product development cycle in the development stage. We communicate with partners to test newly designed compounds, ensuring proper antimicrobial functionality and compatibility with their manufacturing process. After any antimicrobial misnomers are resolved, the development stage comes to a close with the creation of product masterbatches. Another essential step for success, the development portion of our product development cycle prepares partners for new antimicrobial product technology implementation. Our team values open partner communication throughout the entire product development cycle. We encourage healthy collaboration efforts so we can provide you and your consumers with a cleaner, fresher, revolutionized product line that will create a competitive advantage in your market.
