Leading Antimicrobial Protection
When our carefully developed and tested antimicrobial agents are built-in to products during the manufacturing process, microbial reproduction is inhibited throughout the product’s useful lifetime. Microban’s antimicrobial product technology works on a cellular level to disrupt and prevent the replication of bacteria that cause stains and odors. With antimicrobial protection, products have a higher value and longer shelf life.
Nearly 8x more effective than other silver antimicrobials, Microban’s SilverShield technology fights against harmful bacteria like Escherchia coli and Staphylococcus aureus. Our SilverShield technology uses the powerful impact that small amounts of silver have to disrupt bacteria’s metabolic system and prevent microbial growth.
ZPTech is different from other antimicrobials that use silver and copper technology to inhibit microbial reproduction. Microban’s ZPTech technology fights wide-spectrum antimicrobials and is effective against both bacteria and the growth of fungi including mold, mildew and algae.
Scentry® for Polymers
A non-antimicrobial technology, Scentry was developed for seamless integration into polymers to capture odors. With minimal interruptions to their existing manufacturing process, polymer manufacturers can work with Microban to increase product value and shelf life by adding Scentry technology to their polymer application.
Microguard™ Antifungal Protection
Microban offers a variety of antifungal solutions that are built-in to products such as caulks and sealants, paints and coatings, and cement. These targeted solution technologies are built-in to a product during the manufacturing process and becomes an intrinsic part of the product inside and at the surface. When mold and mildew come in contact with the product surface, Microban protection penetrates the cell wall of the microbe and disrupts key cell functions so that the microbecannot function, grow or reproduce.
Microclean™ Visible Cleanliness
Microban offers a variety of surface modification technologies that are built-in or coated on to products. These targeted solution technologies are applied during the manufacturing process and becomes an important attribute that helps improve visible cleanliness and make products easier to clean. These advanced technologies are suitable on plastics, concrete, cementitious grout, stainless steel, ceramics, powder coated steel, and paint. Applying Microban Microclean™ technologies does not disrupt the appearance or durability of the product and are UV stable. Technologies are available for both indoor and outdoor use.
