As first-time exhibitors at K 2022, Microban was honored to occupy a 30sqm booth in Hall 7a.

The construction offered visitors a perfect mixture of detailed product lowdowns, experiential display units, and brand partner showcases. Its secluded 'Innovation Station' also provided the ideal meeting space for those wanting to engage in a more private discussion.

Overall, stand C24 facilitated game-changing conversations that are set to transform a variety of plastic products into their cleaner, fresher and more sustainable counterparts.


The big launch - debuting Ascera™ and LapisShield™

In response to the global call for more sustainable antimicrobial technologies, Microban introduced two brand-new technologies for plastics - Ascera and LapisShield.

Visitors were excited to learn more about these innovative formulations, which present non-heavy-metal alternatives to long-standing antimicrobial chemistries.

Cleaner is greener - adopting sustainable practices throughout K 2022

In keeping with the theme of sustainability, Microban opted for reusable giveaways, downloadable sell sheets, and digital business cards. Efforts to contribute to a more circular economy were further supported by the "One Business Card = One Tree Planted" initiative, whereby Microban committed to planting a tree for every unique business conversation that took place.

Thanks to a great turnout, Microban is pleased to announce that over 500 trees will be planted by the company.
